Doodle_Toph vs Fire by kelly1412 Doodle_Toph vs Fire by kelly1412
Very quick doodle for testing couple of new brushes :)
(Why I always make experiment on Toph ('-')? )
Uhhhh..... did she ever fight with a firebender directly in the show?

FAQ time

I've been asked from time to time which software I use to draw.
Basically I use photoshop, any version higher than CS is fine. If I used other media o r software, I'll mention it in description.

And I also be asked if I use costumed brushes.
Yes I do.
Making costumed brush is not complicated at all, just press F5 (to open the brush penal) in Photoshop and play with it. and they are plenty free brushes available in
DA. However, a handy costumed brush needs both luck and repeated adjustment.

But after all they all just tools, it's good to have some personal working methods, but NEVER let a tool controlling your art, the most important is basic drawing skills. This is a fatal lesson from my pass experience.

So beautiful. I always love when doodles and pictures with less brush strokes can sometimes be so much more beautiful then pictures that took so long to create. Amazing job as always. :tighthug:

u have a typo in ur description.
"custom", not "costumed".

but i really like this piece here. i always liked modern art that looks like traditional asian paintings.
combining it with avatar characters makes it even better because the show is asian related.
pose here is definitely something Toph would do.
but the fire there is weird cuz it doesn't relate to her.

Thank you!!~
I keep making stupid mistake these days.= =b

it was a very quick test piece, I did in less then 10mins, even before I could think of what to draw...
The fire actually was just some casual strokes, it sort looks like fire so I made it yellow. but this random effect also reminds me an interesting question: did she ever fight with any major firebender directly in the show? Cuz it's kinda difficult to image how could she fight with fire. (But I somehow believe she can XD)

yes, one of my friend who is a professional illustrator recommonded me to do some drawing training without using brain, just let my hand do it, in other words, follow the sense, and it may review some hidden part of one's natral desire. I feel it's an interesting training but it's also very difficult to not thinking. so one way to minimize the influence from brain is drawing it asap.

How would Toph fare against a firebender?

Can she even see fire?

Judging by the way she handled Zuko's unintentional attack, it might be a major problem.

ehhh, after finished it, I thought the same question. there is no directly evidence but I somehow believe she can fight back.

Toph, being Toph, will find a way.

I was wondering how she wasn't burned during the airship scene, seeing as how metal conducts heat so well.

my answer will be: cuz she was not facing the main character during the airship scene :XD:

Trufax.

The Gaang on its lonesome can take out the entire Earth Palace guard, but has trouble with Mai, Ty Lee, and Azula?

Similarly, Ty Lee takes out an entire crack team of earthbenders . . . but can't quite get a hit on Sokka. (the second time around, granted)

Iroh takes out the entire Royal Guard on Azula's ship, but expresses doubt over defeating Ozai. (He totally should have spanked his little bro, imo.)
