The showdown that was always meant to be. by viria13 The showdown that was always meant to be. by viria13
Finally! I have planned this for like a while now, but there was always something I wasn't satisfied with. I still am not exactly satisfied, but at least I seem to quite like this...I guess.

Anyway, the most breathtaking and amazing fight scene in the history of animation *_*

Hope you'll like this..I hope I didn't mess it up too much haha



It's been a long time coming
And the tables turned around
Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down.


this song kind of inspired everything.

Going Down by Sick Puppies is the perfect song for this. I never even thought of it.

"I can't place it, but something's off. She's slipping."

"What's the matter? Aren't you going to try your lightning? Or are you afraid I'll redirect it?"

"You want lightning?! I'LL SHOW YOU LIGHTNING!"

I just loved how Zuko could practically smell the crazy on his normally tactical sister. XD And it did have the most intense conclusion with Azula thrashing around like a toddler in a tantrum, all chained up.

What i found a little intriuging when the series ended, was that the battle between zuko and azula felt a lot more intense than the fire lord and aang. They way they Zuko and Azula's more dramatic with their violin and slow-mo. Probably better than the actual "to save the world" fight... :P

I agree! I hear that the creators felt the same way too. The music and the way Azula had snapped at the end... just breathtaking...

It carried a lot more emotion too. Becuase we saw a lot more of Azula and Zuko's conflicts, even beginning from when they were children. This boiled down to their final fight being a lot more tense than Aang and the fire lord, because we knew he was the BAD guy but there wasnt much of a spark behind their battle. Aang had to do it, firelord had to do it..pfft what ever. But the sibling's battle was personal, giving that deeper feel :C

....end of my analysation :P....

I just wish Zuko had been the one to finish it. He and Azula had such a history together. For the creators let Katara be the one to bring her down would be like having Toph or Sokka take down the Phoenix Lord.

I'll definitely remember this piece.

this has really nice contrast and cast lighting, as well as good perspective and composition.
Your elemental forms need to be just a bit tighter, though.
