so ugh sorry REPOSTING since i left out 2 pages w/ the most cohesive part on it. that’s what i get for putting posts together in early morning delirium 

______________

Finally getting around to posting some of my jotting down little story/headcanon scribble files.  

It’s not all sequential, jumps forward in time and stuff, it’s not even headcanon too much since I have no basis for most any of this, mainly just an exercise in writing/another thing to make me sketch a lot lol.

So I really like Pema, or at least the idea of Pema seeing as she hardly has any screentime (though her season 1 stuff is p cute).  There’s something really appealing to me in basically a nobody- a tiny, young, plain looking non-bender from who knows where- coming in and being like unfalteringly confident and undaunted by like.. anything honestly, as far as we’ve seen.      

I started this bit with a couple rules and challenges, the first one being don’t make them unlikable haha, so therefore you have to diffuse some of the easy-to-make-creepy things about their relationship that the show only mentions.  So the point where Pema confesses all this stuff would be after they’ve known each other for 5 years or so, she joined at 14-15 and she’s 20 when she talks to him about it.  I imagine Acolytes move around temples so she’s lived at different ones including some time at ATI.  She’s also Tenzin’s peer at that point, as much as an Acolyte can be, maybe helped with teaching or at least how to wrangle newbies better or something.  

coming up next or eventually:

how bout some assorted lins looking to the left

I was trying to think of why she wouldn’t be in the trailer today and like maybe it’s spoiler related??  What if she retires for real and moves to zaofu….. I really hope she doesn’t I want her to be an old ass chief of police in Republic City but there would be some consolation in that the new armor looks rad as hell (I mean her regular armor is great but dammit I love pauldrons also those gloves with the white palms omg).  And different hair cos erryone got different hair

Rest are from random sketch files over the past few weeks.  Dude I can totally see Lin being super well behaved disciplined kid despite Toph not enforcing anything, but the one area she would take advantage is just eating whatever she wanted so chub babby lin 

Also love how different Lin and Su’s earthbending styles are.  Su is like Ty Lee if she was an earthbender and Lin is just like as graceful as someone shotputting a cinderblock.

what if the season didn’t open with bumi discovering his bending.  what if he thought his last few shoreleaves were a little too fruitful

I adore this alternate scenario XD

freeglassart said: You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

makanidotdot:

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

 Scribble it down

start to put on features

fix stuff

put on more stuff

image

fix stuff again

image

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

All great tips, plus bonus Zhao.
