So, I thought I'd finally post some of my stuff on here. I was going to wait until I was finished with my current art (Fire Lord Azula) but it's taking me forever to do. I've been photo editing on GIMP since 2009, but I started drawing more since last year (mostly practice) and I now use Photoshop CS5.
Here's the first Avatar fan art that I made on GIMP, earlier this year. As you may already know, I adore Azula and she was fun to draw.
I'm still proud of this one, but I should've made her hair dark brown... I will admit, I traced the outline from a few screencaps of her, but I did all the colouring and shading by myself. It still wasn't easy and took a few weeks. I also used my photo editing skills to give the textures in her armor and eyes.
Grey DeLisle faved this one when I tweeted her. https://twitter.com/King_Soulblade/status/450866147743629312
That was another edit that I made to this and was going to be the original, but I prefer this one.
I really loved June (I wish there had been more of her!), so I had to do one of her as well. Another redraw... The hair texture was hard and I had trouble with that. Trying to find the right translation for her name wasn't easy because I don't speak Chinese. This was fun, though and I used vectors for the background.
This one I made a few changes and was going to try a more grown look, but she still came out cartoonish. I wanted to keep this one as 'Ty Lee' as possible, though. I tried...
This background was my first proper attempt at a landscape. I posted it separate on my Tumblr.

Since then, I've been practicing and it still isn't easy because I don't have a tablet to draw and I rely on my laptop. I'm currently working on a "Fire Lord Azula" picture, as I mentioned above.Here is an unfinished picture of what I'm working on...
This one, I drew up myself but I admit that I did cheat, because I can't draw hands properly... LOL! This isn't the full picture and there's much more to it. She will have a dragon in the background and as for the background that hasn't been started, yet... I'm going to try and attempt to draw a burning Ba Sing Se. *Evil Smirk*
I have much more Azula planned and I wont be tracing. I will be practicing more and maybe I should sketch on paper. I can draw, but it's been years since I did it the traditional way and I'm still new to the whole digital drawing thing.Update 29th Sept 2014:
