Ty Lee by frogpuff Ty Lee by frogpuff
Okay, so I posted this lineart at my lj a very long time ago, but nowhere else as I had used a screencap as reference. Later, during a really boring class, I started coloring it while ignoring the lecture, and then even later, I found the same screencap and realized they really weren't as similar as I was remembering. If you see them together, you can definitely tell I was inspired for the pose, but I saw enough of my own take on it to be worth posting. (It's from the 'Return to Omashu' episode if you want to look it up.)

Anyway! History lecture aside, I am really sorry I have been ignoring dA and not uploading much, and although I still love critiques, I do not plan to work on this anymore, and I know I did not put a lot of effort and care, as it was just something cute I did for myself as a break from schoolwork. But, I still hope Avatar fans can enjoy! Ty Lee is one of my favorite characters >w<

Also, I am sorry to people I owe art (although half do not know it still >:3 ) I haven't forgotten, I'm just under a lot of stress ...

As Yamino pointed out - I traced the line art for our role playing community... I apologized to her and now more importantly I wish to apologize to you. I never claimed the artwork was mine though... I was merely trying to add Ty Lee as a playable character to our RPG Game, and your rendition of her was the only one I could find that had a good fighting stance and looked exactly as I imagined the character. I added a different head for the drawing I did be cause Ty Lee is bubbly and fun. I really don't know all the rules for DA so thanks to Yamino I am currently giving all the artists I borrowed artwork from recognition for what I borrowed. I apologize again because I didn't ask for permission, my stupidity because I wasn't aware I had to. But I am fixing it, however I can't seem to link this Ty Lee to the one I drew for the character sheet I created. Again I apologize - your artwork is amazing!

She doesn't wear that expression very often. Nicely when she does :)

Awesome! :3 Did you do this Samurai Champloo style? Because you really made her look like Fuu, but this pic is awesome nonetheless. Insta-fave!

Love the hands! Nice job working from reference!

so cool^_^love the drawing
MaskedGirl Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2007
This is so very awesome. I think it's the first time I've seen Ty Lee looking serious, actually. xD
Awh, but I love her so much. She reminds me of myself when I've had too much candy... or when I wake up in the afternoon. Oh god. She reminds me of myself all the time, that's bad. x_x;
Anyways, you did a mervolous(?) job on the coloring and shading. This is probably the nicest picture of Ty Lee I've seen thus far. <3

nice job:-)

The pose is insane :XD: Fantastic work on the hands, those are very difficult positions to get right, and it looks like you did it. You did a great job with the shading as well, you are always good at that! The texture fits the piece really well too, really adds some character into the drawing.

And you are forgiven for not uploading much stuff, as I am guilty of the same thing :giggle:
frogpuff Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2007   Digital Artist
:blushes: Thank you so much!

In the drawing I referenced, the hands were horrible! I made a point of redoing them to try to get a more natural feel, so I'm glad they stood out to you :)

Aww, I miss your art work. Remember when we used to have free time? XD
iduck Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
You're welcome :D

Yeah, free time, those were the good ol' days :O If only I had a machine that could freeze time for a while so I can draw, that would be handy! :laughing:

frogpuff Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007   Digital Artist
Uhh, the key is to not pay any attention to the lecture and ultimately fail the class? xD
pinaypenciler Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007  Student
i totally failed the mid-term.

she shouldnt have given us a friggin study guide if only two things were on the stupid test.

Supa-awesome pose! I really like the soft muted colors :)

Great work
Constructive: The left leg (our right) looks a bit wonky, due to the perspective angle chosen...
swan-swan Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2007
Yeah, I knew where the pose was inspired from, but man, you did a good job with this piece. Great work!
