Sexy, Naughty Bitchy Fire Nation by LaGelian // pencil, ink, guoache paint
“I pick all my skirts to be a little too sexy
Just like all of my thoughts they always get a bit naughty
When I’m out with my girls I always play a bit bitchy
Can’t change the way I am sexy naughty bitchy me”
TO CATCH A FALLING STAR
Sokka and Calcifer by LaGelian // Pencil, iPiccy
“Dear Mother Yue, my sister found out she could waterbend today,” Sokka started, sniffling in the cold winter air. “Katara’s so happy…Mommy’s happy, Daddy’s happy. Everyone’s happy.” He took another breath. “But I don’t get it. I’m her older brother, why can’t I do anything yet?” Sokka felt the real tears coming this time. And the sniffling wasn’t because it was below freezing outside. “Why can’t I bend? I want to so badly…I’ll bend anything. Anything.” The tears were blurring his vision now. Hurriedly, Sokka took his mittened hand and wiped them away. “Mother Yue, I wish with all my heart that I can bend. I want my family to be proud of me. Amen.” He slowly got up from his seated position and brushed off the snow had fallen on his snow coat.
COLD BLOODED FIRE
The Firebending Prodigy by LaGelian // Pencil, iPiccy
Azula felt her temper flare again. This time, she didn’t even try to suppress her anger; her hands clenched into tight fists as she prepared to hurl fireballs as she has always done.
She felt the familiar flames lick through her fingers…but this time, they were more eager, hungry, destructive. They felt different.
Azula held her hand up to face level and stared wonderingly at the vivid blue flames. Blue sparks flew out and threatened to singe her hair and face, but Azula ignored them. She was fascinated by the bright core of energy that grew like magic in the center of her palm.
I don’t exactly know when Azula learned firebending, but if she’s already a prodigy at age 16, then I’m going to assume she learned really young. However, the series never mentioned when she learned to bend blue fire…did that come later, after learning “normal” bending, or were her flames always that color? I decided to go with the former, in which Azula is consumed with so much anger that her flames turned blue, instead of the trademark red and orange.
I’m especially proud of capturing her facial expression…I was going for a mix of wonder, fascination, surprise, and obsession. Not to mention the foreshortening was a complete pain, but I’m happy with the way it turned out. Hope you guys enjoy!

am i the only one who is weirdly amused by this
like seasons one and two are pretty chill, like book two meanders a bit but the paths are still pretty straightforward
and then season three it’s like someone gave sokka drugs and a map and said “okay time for you to figure out where we’re going, have at it!”
