Bitter Work _ Toph trains Lin by kelly1412 Bitter Work _ Toph trains Lin by kelly1412

Ver2: Lin's eye color edited. Sorry for the mistake and many thanks to whom pointed it out!~

if you want to reblog on tumblr [link]
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally Finally I am able to spend sometime with my tablet. *tearbend*
I was too busy to draw during the last 4 month, but now the chaos is about to over, and hopefully my life can come back to normal.

I shall finish this piece 4 month ago........... [link] (Toph head shot WIP)

it's interesting to imagine what kind of parent Toph will be. She'll become a love mother for sure, I like the word "tough love" and according to how she trained Aang and how she performed as a bender teacher, I can see she's very strict with training time as well.
It's also interesting to imagine their daily life outfit, Toph can't just wear armor all the time... and they are noble after all. :P

------------------------------------------------------------------------

anyway, the purpose of making this piece is to remind myself keep practice, cus there is so many excuse not to.

"Genetic Superiority can not replace hard working"
Even as the child of the greatest earthbender in the world, I don't believe Lin mastered earthbending and metalbending without effort. on the contrary, in order to carry on her mother's legend, she might push herself harder than any other earthbender in the world.

I think sometimes “talent” is over emphasized. It's very hard to even define what "talent" is and to measure it.
All the "talented artists" I know personally are also very hard working person, some of them work extraordinary hard than I can ever reach. It's not fair to simply ascribed their success to their "talent" and ignore the most hard part.

I still don't think I have much "talent" for drawing even now, but it no longer bother me as it once did, cus I just love drawing and I believe hard working will surely be paid off.

Well, just some personal point of veiw, talent and hard work, I suppose it's an endless debate. But to those who noted me and doubt your "talent", this is my answer.

I heard an interesting theory once that those scars on Lin's face were given to her by Toph during Metalbending training as a way to show her (and all the other students) that she wasn't getting any special treatment just because she was the Sifu's daughter.

I simply love the way how you're portraying Toph in this picture. She's slightly more feminine than she used to be - maybe it's the longer hair or the dress like robe? - but she's still emanating that undominable will and power. Truly the most powerful earth bender that ever lived ;]

Looks tough. But I guess when you're the daughter of Toph Bei Fong you have a lot to live up to.
