Korra Portrait (B1) by thetoaster
Korra Portrait (B1)

Saturday morning drawing fanart and listening to Smashing Pumpkins. This is a realistic rendering of Korra, as she appears at the beginning of season one. Look at those eyes! So innocent! I am thinking of doing another drawing of her as she looks in S4. 

This was done in Photoshop CS4 over about 2.5 hours. I have actually made my own set of brushes for my digital paintings now, which I will share at some point. 

Afloat by thetoaster
a similar theme - of being afloat in space. Monoprints are created by arranging stencils and textures on an inked plate. The process of creating the print destroys the original arrangement, making each mono-print unique. This particular series was created using a combination of monoprint and solvent transfer techniques.  You can buy the original on Etsy here:…

Lirael: A Second Assistant Librarian
Here is a digital portrait I did of Lirael, as she appears partway through the book in her red second assistant librarian's waistcoat. This was done in Photoshop CS4 and took around 2 hours in total. I've been trying to get back into digital painting and this was good practice! 
A Portrait of Asami Sato by thetoaster
A Portrait of Asami Sato

So, this piece takes a bit of explaining. Bear with me! 

Republic City is heavily based upon cities from the beginning of the 20th century. In our world, this period was dominated by lavish and decorative art styles, and this is reflected in the architecture of Republic City. This inspiration includes my own favourite art movement, the Art Nouveau movement. Art Nouveau works are opulent and over the top, relying heavily on complex patterns and luxurious decoration.  

Continuing on from this theme, I wanted to paint Asami in this style, as an artist from the Avatar Universe might have depicted one of the most wealthy and influential women of Republic City. Obviously this piece is heavily derivative of Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer  (a painting was briefly the most expensive artwork ever sold, which seems kind of fitting.) 

The medium is a pencil sketch, which I then painted digitally. I think I spent about 5 hours on it in total. Please enjoy!

Is that latest painting I saw you carrying around at school going to be uploaded? I only saw it briefly, but it looked awesome. "Hay street mall" I think?
