Avatar . Zutara : Your Candle by Nylak Avatar . Zutara : Your Candle by Nylak
A cold and friendless tide has found you
Don’t let the stormy darkness pull you down
I’ll be your candle on the water
This flame inside of me will grow
Keep holding on; you’ll make it
Here’s my hand, so take it


Haha, it wasn’t a hot spring before they got there. >>

Before I get bitten, I’m not a Zutara shipper; I’m pretty much rabidly pro-Kataang. But let’s be serious. I’m madly in love with Katara (a degree to which probably isn’t healthy), so anything that requires me to draw her and her hotness makes me droolingly thrilled. Also, floating candles FTW.

NEXT UP: KATAAAAAANG. Seriously, I feel like I’ve betrayed Aang somehow by trying so hard on this. So I’ll just have to do that much better on the Kataang piece! ^^

Adobe Photoshop CS1. 25+ hours jammed into two days.

Avatar: The Last Airbender, Katara and Zuko do not belong to me (as much as I wish Katara did), but the art does. I really like this piece, so I don’t want to watermark it. PLEASE DON’T GIVE ME A REASON TO.


An entry for =eevachu's Zutara contest, themed "A Passionate Affair." Thank her, because I totally would not have done this otherwise.

This gives me shivers... :SXD
I really don't get you Kataangers, this would NEVER happen with Aang, there's no such passion between them!! Given the opportunity, Zuko and Katara really could find themselves in a situation just like this, and it remains a mystery to me that they didn't (at least not what we saw in the series...)
Great job, anyway ;)

I love this piece! It would've been nice to see at least somewhat of an attempt at a relationship between these two on the show. It would've been interesting
