Toa Tahu


Posted Image


Drawn in: Gimp


Time: 5-12 hours. I didn't count the specific number.


Tools: My hand and touchpad


Story: I was bored one day so I started randomly doodling in Gimp and I managed to draw what looked like a Kanohi Hau. I redrew it, colored it in and created the kanohi hau. Then I got bored and figured I'd make the rest of the body of Toa Tahu. Then I was even more bored so I made a background for the drawing in a mnog style. 


C&C is appreciated.

Awesome man! I love the detail in the background. You should be using him in future comics.

Well done. Only thing I find odd is how you made the Hau have eyes like it's Tahu's face instead of a Kanohi. That aside, good job!:)

TAHU SO CUTE! *ahem* yeah :DThe background definitely fits that of MNOG, the colors, everything.The only thing I want to nitpick is the shadow underneath Tahu. I do see that it's an semi-transparent black ellipse to give the illusion of shadow but to me, my first impression before looking closer, the overall shape gets lost under the colors underneath and it appears as if Tahu is stepping on a shadow slug or something.Very impressive considering that was with the touchpad. Do you have one of those smartphone/Ipad stylus? I think they do work with the touchpad amazingly... :D

I would giev you c&c but there is not much to say

the chibi's proportions seem fine enough and the coloring is good as well.


About all I can say is keep it up.

Wow, you just used your touchpad to make this?? That's really good. I love the cartoon style it has to it.
