Two Sides - Sokka by Blue-Ten Two Sides - Sokka by Blue-Ten
Sokka and The Warrior Within

---------

Sokka is definitely one of my favorite characters, so I had fun working on this piece. And as a result, I may have [unintentionally] put more effort into it than the others :XD:.

At times Sokka can be just a goofy kid, not unlike Aang, but he is also a fierce warrior. I tried to convey both sides here.

Hope ya like it! :D

Toph's picture is next!

Things to edit (thanks for the critiques!):

Smiling Sokka appears a little older than war-paint version -- eyes may be too small, nose too big, etc. Face might be a too long as well.

The knee should be raised slightly on Sokka's right leg, seems much too low as is.


--------------------------

The 'Two Sides' Series:

Two Sides - Aang
Two Sides - Katara
Two Sides - Sokka
Two Sides - Toph
Two Sides - Zuko

Great job! I love Sokka's cocky grin, and the warrior Sokka in the background. Great job with the details, colouring, shading, snow and pose.

Yeah, Sokka seems so silly so much of the time, but even at the start of the series, you realize that his father and the other warriors left knowing that the chance of the Fire Nation showing up at the village was real-and Sokka would have been one of the primary defenders. And he knew this. Underneath that concern regarding matching belts and bags is a child-soldier who had likely worried that his village's survival might depend on how well he could kill people. Worrying about fashion was probably a refreshing change.

How did you make the back picture fade at the bottom??

The back picture was its own layer which I used a mask and a gradient on to fade out the bottom.

In Photoshop you can apply a mask to a layer by clicking the mask button in the layers panel. It should be at the bottom of the panel - a gray square with a white circle in the center. Once you have a mask, you can use a black and white gradient or the brush to mask out areas of the layer :]

I love this, because it mirrors Sokka so good.
On the outside, he is the funny, sarcastic dude that's mostly there for comic relief. All the tragic points about the Southern Watertribe's experience with the Fire Nation are used on Katara and her "I lost my mother in the war!"-chip on the shoulder.
But there are those rare moments that show that Sokka:
- is just as affected by the war as his sister
- often feels he can't measure up, compared to all the powerful (and growing more so) benders around him.

You matched those two sides really well!

The snow/blizzard adds to the sense of mystique and intrigue that Sokka's second side has. And, of course, I love the goofier illustration of our dear Sokka as well. ;) =D

He looks really good. I also think you do convey his two sides, the goof and the warrior within. Sokka gets underestimated but I can't imagine Aang and the others would have been successful without him :heart: He's my fave too :D

Awesomeness! I'm lovin' this two sides series! You should do something like this again some time! Maybe for shipping? And also, you asked for critique. The picture overall is great. But the bottom Sokka's nose looks too big. It's like...too round or something...I don't know. Maybe you could get some reference pictures and fix that? But I'm not flaming! This pic is great! :iconthumbsupplz:
