Zuko and Uncle Iroh by Rider4Z Zuko and Uncle Iroh by Rider4Z
My Avatar music video [link]

hey guys :D i'm a new Avatar fan and this is my first piece for the series. I only started watching a month and a half ago and i absolutely loved it. some friends of mine turned me on to it, and without them i may likely have never tried watching it.

the big NICKELODEON'S claim over Avatar is what first turned me off and made me think yeah they're just trying to be anime, fakers :P....

I've bitten my tongue. Avatar truly surprised me, not just in the animation, but the story development and characters.... In particular, Zuko and Uncle Iroh. They are easily my favorite element in Avatar. Uncle is such a humble fountain of wisdom, while Zuko is strong-willed and often blinded by pride, they balance each other perfectly.

This scene was such a beautiful depiction of humility and forgiveness it brought me to tears.

This is my first piece of fan art of Avatar, so it must be my favorite scene, or at least the one that's stuck with me the most.

medium is just a mechanical pencil (size 0.5) on sketch paper with digitally enhanced contrast. i may color this eventually, either by hand or digitally, but there's just something about raw pencil that i love.

I love Uncle Iroh. He never gave up on Zuko. To carry so much wisdom, you must have done bad things to

My grown introduced me to Avatar: The Last Airbender about 3 months ago.  I am totally hooked!  And, yes, this is my favorite scene.

OMG dude we're on the same boat! I started watching Avatar the same time as you and I'm watching Korra now. I wish I watched it around its air time. I am OBSESSED.
