Letting Off Some Steam... by DeFemme Letting Off Some Steam... by DeFemme
Zutara = HEART!

This came about because of my good friend :iconnautilusl2:! We watched the season three thingy and decided to draw some good ol' Zuko & Katara, so she gave me this prompt: 'Draw a picture of Katara taking a bath and then zuko warms the water.' So this is what came about.

I actually hand drew this on paper (GASP) then colored it digitally. Texture is from CGtextures.com, which is a wonderful site. Also, the original image is HUGE so feel free to download to get the steamy goodness.

**NO SHIPPING WARS PLEASE. ITS A FRIGGEN PICTURE.

EDIT 5/9/08: Oh my gosh you guys! Thanks so much for your kind words and comments on this! I feel so loved. :D

I agree, shipping wars aside it is a very nice picture indeed. You did a great job of capturing each characters ethnic heritage (unlike, for example, the live-action movie).

Keep up the art!

Forgive the pun, but steamy and sexy. I like the hold he has on her. Very much like him to do so. A delightful smug sexy surrounds it.

Tell me about it, stupid teachers are playing there little game of "give-the-students-as-much-homework-and-tests-as-possible!!!" It's like they are all plotting against us... no free time these days.
