zutara - tea by shorelle zutara - tea by shorelle
Zuko and Katara from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I haven't drawn these two for a looooong time, but was struck by a resurgence of fannish love so have some random fluff :aww: Warming up tea is one of the more practical aspects of firebending :>

Yeah.  SCREW MAIKO AND KATAANG AND ALL OTHER SHIPS INVOLVING ZUKO AND KATARA

These two are so cute!  I always compare them to Ani and Padme because on your avatar/Star Wars chart, Anakin is a firebender, Padme a water bender.  And who hasn't drawn an Anakin and Zuko comparison picture?

I very much like the rendering on Katara's face, and the general colour palette to her dress and background.

May I ask what type of brush? I noticed you used Painter. I'm not familiar so if you don't mind describing it. Was it just a normal round brush?

No problem at all! I use a mix between the Real 2B Pencil (brush size around 8-12) and the Fine Ink brush (brush size around 1-2) for outlines, depending on how soft/hard the I want the line to be. For solid colouring, I just use the Fine Ink brush (varying the opacity for colour gradations sometimes) and use the blender brushes (Just Add Water, Stubby Blender and Water Rake are my faves) to mix them together and make a more painter-y effect :D

I'm generally pretty unadventurous when it comes to brushes though, which is why I just use the same ones every time once I found something that works xD (I played around with the others as well, but a lot of the watercolours/oils were a bit too stylised/hard to control haha) Hopefully that makes sense! Are you starting to use Painter too? :)

I'm really not a Zutara person (on the basis that I know waaay too many Zuko-esque people and they're all flippin annoying) but this is such a good picture, you should definitely be proud. :)

Hey shorelle, I'm new here on DA, and I was wondering if you would oblige me by letting me use this gorgeous pic as my avatar/image-y thing. I absolutely love your work, it has such a unique feel to it.

You have a beautiful colouring and painting style. The sense of balancing colours (Can't remember the fancy artsy word), and harmony in the composition is excellent. I also love the background, very decorative and subtle.
