Our Role by daughterofthestars Our Role by daughterofthestars
If you don't get it, the joke went over your head. :D

I had a lot of fun making this. I'm really just poking fun of my insecurities. Toph's like "Get over it, we need something to do."

Uhhhh huh.

And the writer isn't just Maren. Myah, Leona, you guys are all wonderful for giving me lots of things to draw. :D

Photoshop CS3

EDIT: I changed the title to "Our Role" because through all your comments you guys have shown me that, whether artists or writers, we've all had moments like this where we wonder when we ever thought we had the gumption to think we were any good. But then we get a kind word from another of our kind and we're encouraged to keep pressing onwards and challenging ourselves.

You guys are awesome. *happy tears*

Haha! This is great.
If only there were some kind of petition to sign that would ensure that there's some Tokka flashbacks in the next season of Korra.

I fell in love with this drawing before I got into ATLA, and I gotta say, it's funnier knowing the context :)

Oh man, I identify with this so much. I'd love to have my own webcomic! I have the characters, the general idea... but I suck at writing.

Though, their expressions in the last big panel are killing me :XD: They're like WHOA HOW DID THIS EVEN HAPPEN

This is generally what goes through my head whenever I try to write a fight scene. (Although I usually try to resist temptation.) It's that much better because it happens to be Tokka. :heart:

Haha, so funny! I never thought that one could speak a story into existence, though that is valid i guess. Well i heard about some software you can speak into and it types a word document, heard of it? It's cool, though complicated i guess, I don't own it.
