Sketchdump 5.2008 by Isaia Sketchdump 5.2008 by Isaia
Sketchdump compiled.

I had a lag period in April.

But there were some drawings I really liked from March. Started picking it up again in May.

- Pages 1-4 are sketches from the "Sifu Toph" idea I've had.

After the war, after hauling ass by herself, Adult!Toph takes it upon herself to teach other disabled, orphaned, bullied and abandoned children in the various earth kingdom villages, teaching them to hone their skills to compensate for their disabilities, and to basically kick some major butt. So Sifu Toph goes and starts "The School of ROCK" (j/k lol not real name) *shot for bad pun*

But yeah I had some fun with these character designs and backstories for OC's.

Re-did design idea for Older!Toph. Because the last time I drew her it now feels like a pile of fail. : o

Drawing Toph is actually fun, but I didn't do a lot of it before because others pressing me to draw her, didn't really motivate me to do so. Until I had some ideas of my own. : )

-Page 5
sketches of Avatar adults as little guys.

-Page 6-7
personal travel sketches.

Correction though: Page three is a phantom missing page. And page "5" was actually done in May.

...It feels good to draw again.

Just found this; it does look better than your previous sketch. I'm just wondering how she's developed mentally on the way,when she was a fairly static character before that - has she softened? Hardened? Or developed in some totally unexpected direction? Enquiring minds,etc. Speculation is fun :-).

What's the story behind the big kid (reminds me of Choji) and the nervy,topknotted kid?

I'm feeling immensely guilty at the moment. xD;

Recent developments in my brain have pushed me to begin a next-gen fic involving the fate of Space Sword and Boomerang, with snippets of the Gaang and what they're now up to falling in place here and there. Toph is rather instrumental in getting the weapons back in the hands of their rightful owner, you see, and herein lies my problem.

Thanks to you, I can't imagine Toph doing anything but mentoring these kids and teaching them earthbending. However, I don't want to steal your idea. So, if she ever showed up (however briefly or longlastingly) would you be bothered by my adoption of this concept? If you're opposed, I'll probably have her be doing something else, but this has dug itself so deep into my mind that I can hardly deny it. xD;

In other news, the finale was so wonderful, wasn't it? The music completely blew me away, among other things.

I hope you're doing well. =) All the best!
