I’ve just been madly working on my first huge painting in six months whilst juggling my new job. :’D Anyway, even though I know it will never happen, I’ve always loved the idea of Iroh II paying a visit to the Sun Warriors and undergoing the judgement of the dragons. In my headcanon, it’s probably something Grandpa Zuko told him stories about all throughout his childhood, and at some point much later in his life, he finally decides he’s ready to undergo the same experience. Perhaps he waited for quite some time, unsure if he would be worthy as his grandfather once was…
In hindsight, the pose I chose for Iroh isn’t the most indicative of the Dancing Dragon, but it was the easiest to translate into a well-constructed image… :’D
Anyway, I have other paintings in the works, my lovelies! Not sure I can keep painting non-stop on the weekends, though… this one took me at least two entire days!
Sokka: Yeah, that’s a great dance you two learned there. Zuko: It’s not a dance, its a firebending form. Sokka: We’ll just tap dance our way to victory over the fire lord. Zuko: It’s a sacred form that happens to be thousands of years old! Katara:*mockingly* Oh yeah? Well, what’s your little form called? Zuko: *hesitates* …The Dancing Dragon.
