Sweet Moves by rufftoon Sweet Moves by rufftoon
It started very seriously, as a practice for poses...then Toph came in, and then slowly everything turned into a Calvin and Hobbes moment.

I don't control these characters. They remind me any chance they get.
And no, I don't draw Toph's eyes. It just happens that way. If I do a close up of her face, then I will.

Rough pencils-photoshop colors
(little sketchy at the bottom is one of the original doodle that sparked the idea)

All characters belong to Mike, Bryan and Nick...Nickelodeon, that is. Dancing moment brought by Bill Watterson.

¡ADVERTENCIA! ¡Sigue leyendo!  ¡Oh morirás, incluso si solo miraras la palabra advertencia!

Una vez había una niña llamada Clarissa, tenía diez años y vivía en un hospital psiquiátrico, porque mató a su madre y su padre.  Se puso tan mal que fue un asesinato para todo el personal en el hospital para que el gobierno más decidiera que la mejor idea era el deshacerse de ella, por lo que armaron una habitación especial para matarla, lo más humanamente posible pero la máquina no funcionó. que estaba usando salió mal  Y ella permaneció sentada en agonía durante horas hasta que murió.

Ahora, todas las semanas, el día de su muerte, regresa con la persona que lee esta carta, un lunes por la noche a las 12:00 am  Se arrastra a tu habitación y te mata lentamente, cortándote y mirándote sangrar hasta la muerte.

Ahora puedes esto a otras diez imágenes en este sitio, y perseguir a alguien que no lo haga.  Esto no es falso  Aparentemente, si copia y pega esto a diez comentarios en los próximos diez minutos, tendrá el mejor día de su vida mañana.  Te besarán o te invitarán a salir, si rompes esta cadena verás una pequeña niña muerta en tu habitación esta noche.  en 53 minutos alguien dirá que te amo o lo siento

Well, dancing IS a good exercise, and more than just one martial art looks like a dance.
Kapoera, for example.
And in the Book of Fire (season 3) Aang and Katara DID dance by doing waterbending moves.
Best infiltration story i´ve ever seen.

I just love it when characters run away with an idea.  Or in this case dance it away.  I like Iroh's surprised look when Toph enters the scene and his slowly morphing smile.  They look like they're having so much fun!  Fantastic poses.

"Calvin and Hobbes" is still huge where I live too. I sure hope it stays that way, it's my favorite comic ever!

And it's ridiculous how much this dance episode fits these two characters. I love how you made it a gradual change: they started out actually practicing, but in the end they were just having too much fun to bother with traditional stances. I like to believe it also reflects some of your own mood as you drew them. :)

The movements look great, their expressions speak volumes... It's awesome!

Fav'd.

LOVE. I love these two together - really wish we had a chance at more of their wacky adventures. (I'm pretty sure Iroh was "grandpa" to Lin. I refuse to imagine it any other way.)
