I decided to finish up my Tahno speedpaint from a couple of days ago to practice my coloring. Because according to the poll, I should improve my coloring. Thank you for the feedback.

I am quite happy with this piece, took me quite long to detail the whole thing. I know the water's not perfect, but that's the best I can do at the moment. I'll try better next time. But I'm quite satisfied with his face, and his clothes.

I would really appreciate it if you leave me a critique. I would love to hear what I could improve from my drawings.

EDIT : Thank you so much for all the reviews! They're really helpful!
I fixed some things, like the position of his right arm, his skintone, and also his hair color. I hope it's better now.

well it's great overall, there's nothing bad about it. just maybe work on the neck (it looks a bit too thick)

also you can make the eyes stand out brighter like how you did with the water :) add different shades of blue to it cause it seems a bit toned down compared to the rest of the draw

the left shoulder has kind of gone out a bit too much, it doesnt look in proportion to the rest of his body and face (since the right arm is placed like that) and it looks like he dislocated his left shoulder because you can see its gone backwards at the top but the forearm is placed as if the shoulder were meant to be placed beside his body

overall *standing ovation* xD

This is a fantastic piece from my point of view, and the sketch for this was very nice as well! The contrasts of the different lighting colors play in wonderfully with each other and keep everything from looking stale with just one color light source.

I really love how there is sharp definition in his eyes; they're so piercing. The painting style is unique and well done and really seems to suit our favorite pro water bender. As for the water, I honestly think it fits with the style of drawing and painting you used. It's easy to see that it's water and not some sort of plasma or something like that. I wouldn't change a thing about it!

I'm also very glad that you didn't harshly cell shade this like the art is in the actual show. I feel like that might have hindered the impact of it. But I have to say that in my opinion, the best part is that expression of his. It's very in character for Tahno.

The only thing I would do differently is perhaps darken his hair just a bit. It's painted well, but I think it's just a bit too light overall. Then again, that's just me. It still looks very nice as it is!

Love me some Tahno. His expression is amazing. I'm jealous, I wish I could pull off such serious looks. D:

I really want to see him in future episodes. Redemption!

I do think that the shading on the right arm should be more detailed, though.

Amazing work! The smug expression looks perfect and the water is done in a really neat way! The hair also looks great, and the foreshortening is flawless. Great job!

Ah Tahno. I loved his character, even if he only was in like three episodes. I really would like to see more of him in the future - I believe that even though Amon may have taken his bending away, he can still be an ass-kicking non-bender and knock people's socks off anyways. :3 But who knows if we'll ever see him again. D:

Anyways, awesome job! Tahno looks amazing here! 8D
