he seriously looks like a jerk.

such a cute couple^^ i'll totally ship themXD
dragoeniex Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013
N'aw, this is a very cute picture. ^_^ I prefer Zutara, but there are some Maiko moments I enjoy. This one reminds me of the scene from the finale.

But just so you know, there's a two year age difference between Katara (14) and Zuko (16), the same amount between Katara and Aang (12). And Mai is 14 as well, I believe, like Azula and Ty Lee. So Zutara is no more weird (speaking age-wise) than Maiko, and less weird than Kataang, considering girls mature faster. :P

that's soooooooooooo cute!

I love this couple. They go well together especially with their past knowing each other. I don't see Zuko with Katara because they are COMPLETE opposites and would fight, and him and Toph wouldn't even make sense -_- I see Zuko with Mai and the girl in Ba Sing Se, but mostly with Mai. I'm all for opinions, but that's just ridiculous if you (the viewers) come here just to rant about these two not being together.

Awww I love this couple so much. :3
Fientje18 Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
Zuko choose Mai and that should be the reason we should choose Mai over Katara and Toph for Zuko. And btw, Zuko and Katara really don't match each other at all!!! I'm definitely sure that if Zuko and Katara start a relationship they would fight everyday and it wouldn't last for a month... =S
And it's true. My heart melted when Zuko and Mai hugged in the last episode!! That was just soooooo damn cute!!!!

It's sad that they broke up according to wiki :I

They showed a panel of a comic where they broke up, I hope that is not true and they both got back togheter T-T
aokajin Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've always thought they were kinda cute. I see why people wanted the fire/water thing, but these two are a match fit in my book.

Your digital painting skillz have injured my eyes with goodness. Such subtle lighting in the background, yet still good contrast in the fore. :D A picture definitely deserving of attention.

Keep up the good work!
dragoeniex Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
N'aw. This is cute. :3 Mai's so into it, she can't even be bothered by all the orange.

You do realize that Mai and Katara are the same age, though, yes? I think Azula, Ty Lee and Mai are all two years behind Zuko.
CaledonCat Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
At first i didn't liked Mai and didn't thougth she deserves Zuko but after she hepled them to escape that prison and choosing him over his sister i really like her :heart:
moni158 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Student Filmographer
They were childhood sweethearts...I shipped it from the very beginning..:iconloveloveplz:
CaledonCat Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
ah yeah that sur is right :nod:

but as zuko once told her as well she just didn't seem to be interested in anything (not even her boyfriend) but after that thing i saw that she really cared for him ^^

Best couple in ATLA :heart:
Atroxa Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
all these people that are commenting about how they hate this couple need to grow up. you're allowed your opinion but i don't think this artist really cares, if you're going to comment saying you hate Maiko at least include a comment about the art, and not just 'omg i hate maiko' that's pretty rude to this very talented artist
Rahal-Stmin Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012
The unfortunate soul to catch them in such an emotional moment is shishkebabbed
jackaleclipse Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2012
I love your art. Your style translates so will with the fluidity of Avatar: TLA. Amazing!
XxTwylaxX Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I can't imagine them hugging with a smile at all -_- *gag*.... But I can see them together since they've known each other so long and didn't exactly have great childhoods T.T
KiSm15 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2012  Student Artisan Crafter
aw they're so cute together

Hinotechi Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't not hate Mai a little - I wanted Zuko to have the girl from Ba Sing Se. But they are sooo funny together, all apathetic and awkward xD
But boy do I love Avatar - I love the Aang era so much that I can't watch Korra :(
LunarBard Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I agree. :)
