Shifting Earth - Toph by Isaia Shifting Earth - Toph by Isaia
Yeah.. it's Toph. and my concept for older!Toph (it's just an idea)

There are many ideas for how Toph might be when she's older, and this may just be one in a squillion ideas that everyone's already done, but eh, I had fun drawin it. Relieved stress and nervousness.

Kind of thought that maybe as she got older, she became determined to train with how much metal she could bend, how far she could bend it, endure it, and how powerful she would become, or how maybe she would teach other (maybe even other blind or disabled) earthbenders her style of mantisgungfuearth/metalbending or supahawesomes.

or something.

Tried my best to use the opportunity to practice with the pen tool and found out that merging layers EXISTED on photoshop lol. XP

Unlike mostly everyone and their mom in the avatar fandom, In the beginning, Toph wasn't exactly "my omg favorite character!!!!!!!!!!11:heart: :rose: :love: :excited: " when she first appeared, ( "*gasp* Isaia how could you?") but ahhhh she grew on me in the later episodes as she developed more, especially when she shows her vulnerability as a kid and as a fighter in different situations. A very cool contrast to the other female characters, and a kickass unexpectedly fresh character design.

Before, I didn't want to go and draw Toph all over the place, because I figured what would be the point if everyone was already doing it, and I couldn't even think of something..different for her, or if I couldn't get a feel of her character. Y'know?

Never knew how fun she actually was to draw, and this may just be the first part of something I'll draw of Toph. Mayybe. ^___^

Though after a while all the layers and inking and stuff really drove me up the wall @__@;;

So yeah guyz, this was just for fun, it's just an idea. I know it may be not what some people would expect "TOPH is supposed to look like later OMG" but then again, do any of us really know?

We'll just have to wait and see, yeah?

Because I sure don't know either ^^

Found her! Very nice ^_^
LibertyRenegade Featured By Owner May 20, 2008
This is awesome. All throughout the series, up until she broke out of that cage, I was thinking, "Why isn't anyone bending metal???"
RosalieMinnie Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2008
oh my gosh, she looks so beautiful! I love the design of her outfit, it suits her very well :)

I just thought I might go gallery diving.

You have a ton of cool stuff! And I love Toph. She's awesome.

And I think you did an excellent job with this design as an older form of her. Definitly seems like her!
San-chanReincarnated Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2008
God, I just wanna hug you. This is more than just AWSOME... I had never really thought that a Sexy!Tough!Toph was possible, but you did it! And it makes her look IC! Incredible!

And I know what you mean... I didn't care that much about Toph before «The Serpent's Pass», but she was kinda cute in that episode and... well, I'm a Tokka fan to death and beyond =D

Oh DID do one -feels stupid- And i've seen THIS before. Haha yeah sorry for the moment of brain...laps...fart...ness -_-
saraistarr Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2008
I was in your gallery and MaryCatherine saw the screen -- she ordered me to "look more picshaa," and I think this is her favorite (she kept saying "click this one!").

She's like "Toph, Toph mommy!" and I had to explain, "No, that's Toph as a little girl, and that's Toph as a big girl!" XD

I just love the parchment paper background. It makes look all the more authentic. I could totally see toph looking like that!(Man, how will she walk around in all of that metal.)
ander-s Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2007  Student General Artist
okay so like i already though you made a picture of an older toph, but could you make a timeline like you did with the others? cause i would like to see her as a baby too ^_^. or perhaps i'm asking too much of you, in that case i'm sorry.
oh yeah before i forget (i mean that was he whole point of sending this) the picture is awesome!!!!

Thats cool. She looks awesome!!!! : )
Regreme Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2007
I figured she'd be more developed, considering she's already developed at a young age. HOWEVER, everything else is simply perfect. Attitude, appearance, even incorporating her metal bending into the mix. Sheer brilliance! Well done.:D
Hate-Lynn Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2007  Student General Artist
OMG! I love when you do the people and what you think they will look like when they'er older! Over all, YOU ROCK!
IceQueenRex Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2007
Ah Toph. My favourite character of all time on Avatar! :D You did an excellent job! She still looks the same yet...well as you drew it, older! I really like how you did it. The colours are perfect and sue me for being girly but I love the hair ^_^ Awsome job!
