Two Sides - Sokka

Sokka and The Warrior Within


Sokka is definitely one of my favorite characters, so I had fun working on this piece. And as a result, I may have [unintentionally] put more effort into it than the others :XD:.

At times Sokka can be just a goofy kid, not unlike Aang, but he is also a fierce warrior. I tried to convey both sides here.

Hope ya like it! :D

Toph's picture is next!

Things to edit (thanks for the critiques!):

Smiling Sokka appears a little older than war-paint version -- eyes may be too small, nose too big, etc. Face might be a too long as well.

The knee should be raised slightly on Sokka's right leg, seems much too low as is.


The 'Two Sides' Series:

Two Sides - Aang
Two Sides - Katara
Two Sides - Sokka
Two Sides - Toph
Two Sides - Zuko

Great job! I love Sokka's cocky grin, and the warrior Sokka in the background. Great job with the details, colouring, shading, snow and pose.

Yeah, Sokka seems so silly so much of the time, but even at the start of the series, you realize that his father and the other warriors left knowing that the chance of the Fire Nation showing up at the village was real-and Sokka would have been one of the primary defenders. And he knew this. Underneath that concern regarding matching belts and bags is a child-soldier who had likely worried that his village's survival might depend on how well he could kill people. Worrying about fashion was probably a refreshing change.

How did you make the back picture fade at the bottom??

The back picture was its own layer which I used a mask and a gradient on to fade out the bottom.
