If anyone wants to color this. Let me know. After watching the Avatar season 3 trailer I can't get the Zutara ninja idea out of my head! I cannot wait for it! The idea behind this picture is that Zuko and Katara have spent a lot of time together and now have formed a relationship deeper than a friendship. There is a clip in the trailer of Katara bending the rain. She looked very emotional in that scene, and maybe after that fight she needs some comfort from Zuko. The depth of that comfort shows through this drawing. Katara needs someone to lean on and give her the strength she needs. That's where Zuko comes in.
I am so happy with the way that the picture turned out. It's the first time I've drawn rain, and I think it turned out well. The rain drops coming from their faces show sadness but their eyes show compassion. At least, that's what I was going for.
At first I was going to make it a comic, but it looked better as only one panel. I also thought about writing a short fanfic to go along with this. But I never got around to it. If anyone wants to write a short fanfic to go along with it, let me know.
