The final version of the background used in the final Toph pic. Like with the others I included the symbol of earthbending at the toph and placed the national earth kingdom insignia at the middle. There are other several references to the earth kingdom here if you can spot them.
EDIT: July 30, 2011- Revised the background a bit. Added shading, light, and blurred some elements so they don't seem overpowering.
After my last deviation, [link] which was done from memory, I found a turnaround sheet for Korra. It was kind of terrible because it was a cam pic of a projection, but even with the poor quality it showed me a lot of things I got wrong.
So I just had to give it another go. Especially considering that the official work is much more "HNNG" than my work. But I wanted to try to do an action pose instead of a sexy pose just to mix things up.
Pin-Up work of Korra is forth coming, just... give me time.
There was originally more to this pose with extremely foreshortened legs, but they weren't working for me so I cropped them out. If you're interested to see what I was going to do, the sketches are on my blog.
