Toph Bei Fong by reygay Toph Bei Fong by reygay
Toph Bei Fong

This is my first 2D detailed drawing. I have used CS3/CS5 along with an Intuos 4 tablet to complete this project. I have been working on this project in total of several months. :)

My goal for this project, is to make anime characters look seemingly human and tangible. It is ambitious, especially at my beginners level but since I'm having fun, I think I'll do ok with this new hobby. :)

On this drawing, a teenager(?) Toph is posed with a sunset lighting, along with an Earth kingdom parasol.

Original size is 3371 x 5789 but I have resized this to 1280. I might be refining some details on this project before printing it on an A2 format (already printed on 14x24inch on a premium FujiFilm photographic paper using either an RGB laser or LED printer[Chromira/Lightjet] and the print looks 3Dish :)).

My next drawing project is Eureka (the lady from Eureka 7). :)

Wow, this almost looks like you took a real person that resembles Toph and photoshopped her into a cartoon. Well done.

Awesome! The only thing I think you messed up on were her eyes. They seem a little too big.

Hi thanks! I intentionally made the eyes a bit big to coincide with the anime scale of the eyes. :)
