:TaangAU: Footsteps Color by Kimbawest :TaangAU: Footsteps Color by Kimbawest
Iíve wanted to color something from Avatar for quite sometime. I just have not found anything to my liking until now. Jinjinbun has drawn some really nice artwork with Aang as a girl and Toph as a very handsome boy with some serious muscles on him. Anyway, this was my first attempt at coloring her work. The link to the original black and white can be found here

I really like this. Someone actually CHANGED Toph! No one ever does that, they just say she's the same.

Most artists tend to focus on Aang because during the series several times he was referred to as twinkle toes by Toph. Even the Ember Island play had a female play his part (much to his displeasure).

I think Toph as a boy shows a bit more confidence in himself, and girl Aang is far more willing to take direction from him. The drawing really makes both of them look like a pretty cute couple.

I am glad you liked it. ^^

I chose to have Aang have brown hair for two reasons. First, I'm not that good at making black hair look all that good (I was fairly lucky with Toph). Admittedly, I'm not much better coloring brown hair, but it was a compromise I was willing to live with. Second reason for choosing brown hair over black was I felt it made Aang look more feminine. Let's face it; in the series he did look rather masculine once he had that black hair on his head, quite handsome in point of fact.

The ultimate bottom line is it did look good to me, the artist didn't raise any objections, and I have seen other art depicting a gender bender Aang with brown hair, not much, but others have apparently had the same idea that I had. A few examples:

Yes, Aang should have black hair as the original creators of the character intended. I tried to do something a bit different. I was happy with the result, and even though you may not like it as much I do thank you for your comment. I sincerely doubt I'll go back and change the color of the hair; I have quite a few coloring projects I'm working on and can never find the time to color them all.
