Toph - Strong by DaveBaldwin3D Toph - Strong by DaveBaldwin3D
The latest in my series of Avatar fan arts.

"Okay class raise your hands if you don't like Toph"

*Looks for Hands*

"GET OUT!"

Seriously, she's a fantastic character but we already know that don't we?

Avatar The Last Airbender and all related characters belong to Nickelodeon/Viacom

Art is mine

Check out my Tumblr or my twitter or hell just look around here if you want more.

EDIT: now being aware that google translate made me use the characters for "Husband" instead of "Strong" I am now searching for the appropriate characters. I think I've found something would "強い" be correct?

強い means "is strong" in Japanese. I don't know about Chinese, possibly it's just 強.

Thank you very much, Either than the translation hiccup I think it's pretty smashing as well.

Just so I don't embarrass myself again is this appropriate:

強い

the first word is sufficient for me: 强

but of course, it's just my opinion :)
if you really want two characters though, this would be visually better: 強さ (meaning strength)
well, it seems weird that one of Toph's legs is standing on thin air, so my suggested characters would let her have a proper standing ground ;)

I have it as a PSD so if anyone could send me the proper characters I should be able to fix it easily.

強壯
This is more correct if you're going for the meaning of "strong".

I got something similar "強い" after looking around a bit more.

Thanks, I'll have a fix up shortly.

I'll have to make a note to do more than just use Google translate when I'm looking for these. Usually I'd just search for an image of the characters and use that but being able to actually get the text makes for the better images.

Well, you do know what the two chinese characters mean, right? Right?? <.<

Honestly I just used google translate for the Japanese. If it does not mean "Strong" or a variation of it that's it.

just like what chaosk9 said, those words literally mean "husband". Literally :/

I love your style! And Toph is my favorite character!!!! I would probably shove someone out if the room if they didn't like her. I've never seen a single soul, word or anything to imply that anyone dislikes her. She's just too...hmm I seem to have a loss of words for her... She's kinda what everyone wants to be tough, independent and strong. :P
Great job, I love it, A TON.

Thank you kindly! Very much appreciated.

But yeah, Toph seems to be the one ever constant when it comes to Avatar fans. She's not everyone's favourite but no one in their right mind actually dislikes her.

Excellent. :) I think "Strong" is just right for Toph; the map of the world Avatar even says "Earth is Strong."

Yeah, I mean I went through a few ideas for what word to associate her with but it just kept coming back to the first word I thought up.
