Aforementioned Dynamic Duo

I had to quickly jump on the Character Redesign wagon when I found out Avatar was going to be a thing, and I didn't have to think twice about which characters I wanted to illustrate. The interesting part of this one is that I was fully prepared to draw Zuko and Iroh as I would (with some relatively minor modifications), when my friend Chris suggested drawing them in Team Paper Bicycle's fashion: cute animals. The idea was sold.
