I'm currently watching the episodes of the original series all the way through, and am really excited to get to the 87-89, since the bulk of episodes i've seen when i was younger are mostly Tom Baker and Sylvester McCoy, both whom i really liked and stood out in my mind.
zuko being his bad self third in the zodiac series; Zuko is Aries, a fire sign that represents confidence, independence, and ambition. he's fun to draw, I actually like his new hairdo. kinda spiky and gravity-defying.
This was the first of a zodiac series I'm doing for the avatar kids. I don't actually believe in zodiac stuff or astrology, but I thought it'd be cool to do a personality test for all the main characers. Katara is Scorpio, a Water Sign that represents emotion, passion and strength as well as jealousy and obstinance.
Made to count down the days till the 50th Anniversary special last year, these Doctor Puffs have got to be some of my proudest work to date. I didn't come to Doctor Who until I was in my late teens but the show has definitely had an impact on who I am and how I view the world. I think that there needs to be more shows like this on TV today and I am excited to see what the next 50 years has in store for the famous Time Lord.

well this one is complicated.... being full of symbolism both obvious and not. of course there are the colors, but i don't think i need to explain those to you. the body outlines are representative of them as adults, being naked as to not assume anything about their future. the faces are of them in the present time of the series. and notice the way they are facing... that represents their current POV of the future and the war. Aang and Katara face away from the front/future/war, as they are more focused on other things (Aang on finding Appa, Katara on Aang). while Zuko and Toph are only looking away a bit, representing their own introverted problems. and Sokka, being the worrier that he is... is facing the war head on.
as for the style of the piece.... i wanted to try something different, something not yet seen (i haven't anyway) with this subject matter. i took a lot of time on this. though there are mistakes (Sokka looks like he's stabbing Aang in the head... i know. oh well...) i'm pretty happy with it. Aang was giving me so many problems though! i drew 6 different finished poses for him, all of which sucked in my mind, so i decided on the one that is very much like Toph's pose, only from the front. of course i'm happiest with Sokka, Zuko, and Toph... but i always am, their easier to draw and get my mind into... course isn't that always the way with fav characters? you can draw the others, but not as well.
and let me know if you want to see the full pics of the faces
AND YES I KNOW ZOKO'S BACKWARDS! before anyone says... but honestly... he wouldn't fit well the other way. HEY WAIT! nevermind! i can say they're all mirror reflections.... HA! BOOYAH!.... okay i'll go to bed now... i obviously need sleep
Alright. As promised. The new Zuko of the pop art series. I dedicate this to because she kept asking about it and she is the one that inspired me to get it done. Thanks girly! Hehehe, now I need to get back to studying. >_<
