Prince Zuko portrait by FreyWillhazen Prince Zuko portrait by FreyWillhazen
this is a tribute for the failed Avatar: The Last Airbender movie,
i was looking fwd to a bishi zuko that looks like the anime, but it never came *sads* so I decided to make myself feel better, and paint my version of zuko :D

photoshop cs4 extended still with my old A5 bamboo tablet

*note: it's still unfinished and i have no idea when i'll find time to finish it :( so for the moment, it'll just be a plain headshot.

_______________________________________________

Hi guys :D I'm almost done with this painting ... and I'll repost it soon.

*For those who faved this version ... I'm sorry but I'll be overwriting it to the renewed version. If anyone would like me to repost a headshot like this one, I will repost it again. I'll have 2 versions of the finished painting. sorry for the inconvenience

thanks hope u enjoy ^^
______________________________________________

and here's the renewed version. enjoy :D

Ah I spent ages looking for this drawing since I remember seeing it years ago! This was how he should have looked in the film :) The shading is virtually flawless and so smooth, yet the detail is really precise and I absolutely adore how you have done his eyes. Really brilliant job! :)

Love it. I never did care much for Aang or the others but loved watching Zuko and Uncle Iroh. And can understand his past..... My scar is a little less visible (on my leg) but I know where he is coming from.

This is the best version of him I have seen so far. X )

This is so beautiful as is! I don't think it needs anything else! I agree with you, the movie was so disappointing! This is how I love to imagine Zuko too. He is my favorite character in the series, because out of all the characters, his transformation and redemption is the most meaningful to me personally. Thank you for this portrait. OK if I use it as wallpaper?

hello Freywillhazen...

I really like this version of Zuko... So awesome!
Last October 2, 2011, I cosplay'ed Zuko and I used this version as one of my guides for my cosplay w/ a 3 months preparation... I tried my best to make it as accurate as I can (specially with the armor costume in the cartoon series) but unfortunately, I had a very hard time making it possible, so i did my own version... and posted this photo that u created together with my photo in my fanpage... I really like this Zuko version that's why I borrowed this photo... Hope U dont mind... and hope you'll not get Mad/Annoyed with my cosplay.
(Just a Fan =)

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU very much for this Zuko version u created.
