here is for *MizuSuuteki

I had such a hard time with this one because I originally wanted to draw Toph from head to toe in a nifty pose, but then I realized that I couldn't just put her in any position because I really wanted to stay true to the character...
also, since I only saw a couple of episodes from Avatar: The Last Airbender (planning on watching it though!) I didn't know the character very well...

after trying to find a suitable pose for some time, I took a break from that idea, finished my bachelor's degree (yes, it's been THAT long) and eventually realized that I didn't HAVE to draw the whole character for the image to be interesting and that's when I came up with what you're seeing right now X3

I'm so sorry it took all that time Mélina, but I hope you're not too disappointed!!!

thank you so much for your patience =3


also, the kanji are technically saying her name (according to Wikipedia) but don't hesitate to correct me if they're wrong!

This is really adorable, it would look so cute on a bag or a shirt, IF YOU DO PUT THEM ON A BAG OR A SHIRT TELL ME, I WANT ONE.
I love the pastel palette and the simplistic shading, very elemental but beautiful, good work!

I love Toph<3 She's the best! The pose is so cute as well. My only little critique is the fingers are a bit odd. But I absolutely love the coloring style you used here! Great work! :D
