Iroh - The Grand Lotus by capnkupo Iroh - The Grand Lotus by capnkupo
It's Iroh! :iconlaplz:

Since getting into ATLA this year and totally being smitten with Iroh's character I felt I had to make a proper arts of him. I thought the Lotus outfit looked sharp and so I wanted to work with it, as well as make this as awesomebadassepicpowahd as much as possible.

Which is why he is fire bending and generating lighting.

By the way, melding the two things together almost melted my brain. Like not having one over power the other too much and look good at the same time....I spent a whole lotta time on that as well as the lighting, because...I've never worked with fire in a piece like this before so I had to do a lot of thinking. lol

AMAZING! I love the details on the fire and lighting. Though the details on Iroh himself, are equally great. And great work, with the shading, lighting, pose, expression and background.

Thank you very much :) The fire and lightening probably took me the longest to do, so it's great to hear you noticed it! ^_^

This is soooo amazing! I love Uncle in the first place but you made this piece totally rock! I adore the way you made his robes look more like samurai armor as well. Great job!!!! :PinkBummy: Tard bouncy flip Happy Dance Tard bouncy flip:PinkBummy:

Yes, exactly! Who knows if they can even do both fire/lightening at the same time, but I thought it'd look pretty cool. Many thanks.

I really like the White Lotus outfit too. Iroh looked really cool in it, so it's nice to see a well detailed version here! Plus firebending. :)

that's one badass picture. Iroh's and Zuko's Uncle-Nephew relationship was by far my favorite throughout the series.
