Freedom!

Finally finished the pages for Nick magazine, the Avatar special for September. Hope people will like it, it is quite a silly little idea (I guess I can talk about it, Dave has mentionned it here and there). Woohoo!

Weekend will be quite busy- will be getting visit from the parents, who I haven't seen since the holidays 7 months ago. Ouch! We might go to the street fair for the Just For Laughs festival. Could be fun.

Also planning a little comic with Aang+hair. Can't help it, it's all over the web and the muses threw one idea brick at me today :D

Of course, I also quickly put rough pages for the Water Tribe AU. Drawn a bit more faster than usual, so they may look a bit...empty and what not. Blah. Doing a bit of montage here, just so I can get to the fun part faster.

I think the magazine's in Previews -- I'm pretty sure I saw it there... If not, I may be just intending like heck to order it.

Yay! More pages to read!

Oh, Zhao. Do you really think that there's no one on your boat who reports to a different master? Oh dear.

Ouch. Zhao's sudden cruelty strikes me where it hurts.
And yet... I still love him. Funny world, huh?
Can't wait for moar!

Guess his cruelty comes and goes, but it's never very far from the surface.

Avatar mag special in September? Hmm... sounds to me like they're perhaps promoting the start of the 3rd season?? Very exciting, in any case.

Can't wait to see your take on hair aang (haang?) XD

Hey those are the pirates he hired before!! Ahaha but he wouldn't remember that I guess XD Nor did he remember that last time he got promoted for BEING SHIRTLESS A LOT HINT HINT
rufftoon

It is promoting season 3- and the stories in it will be a bridge between season 2 and 3 too.

The hair Aang was partly inspired by your sketch. You get...1/5 of a credit (5 panels- one inspired by you).
Heehee, you recognised the pirates (I drew them from memory, so they could be a bit off)
Man, someone has to tell him he gets promoted when he goes around shirtless. Maybe he would believe it :D

Oh, Zhao. You could have stayed good . . .

Hy, getting his admiral rank back IS good right? So he is being good...just not to everyone.

MOAR comics! I can't tell you how excited I am to see them! Boo Zhao!

By the way, I loved your Aang and Toph comic!

(yeah, he deserves the booing)
Thank you! The comic was fun to do. Short and sweet. The next one will be 7 pages.

Very distant relatives?
My, never feel sorry about not commenting! Just glad you're along for the ride, and hope you keep enjoying it.

Oh boy, he's really that bent on having his rank back. >:
why oh why Zhao? ;_;
Oh well...that's how his wheels turn. XD

He's got that silly idea in his head that it is the only way he can somehow be himself.
Don't try and argue with him, he's hardheaded.

Hi, I saw your stuff on Nick Mag. Congrats for getting published! Your Avatar mini-comic has a very Bone-ish flavour did you ever read Bone? (theis Zhao one feels mre bande-dessinee ish)
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2007 09:47 pm (UTC)
Many thanks!
I am a big fan of Bone :D And I also grew up with a whole load of european bédés...so expect some Asterix influence in the next one ;)

Always the ambitious sadist. Guess that's Zhao's personality then, and no spirit can change that.
Can't wait to see more of your work soon in NickMag! Have fun with your family..

There are some things, deep down in his soul, that cannot change.
And others will.
Looking forward to the Nick Mag of September soon! Loads of things I haven't seen too- should be fun :D

Pirates for the win. And the happy look on the faces of the slaves contrasted with their heartbreak when Zhao leaves is just awesome.
rufftoon

Thank you!
Ah, some pirates are better at handling Zhao then others :)

Aw. Not a Kick The Dog moment. :( Yeah, this is how you talk when you edit Tvtropes.org. Check it out sometime, has some nice things about Avatar and I've even managed to inadvertantly convert quite a few people there. :D Anywho, great stuff as usual rufftoon. ;)

Thank you!
Hmmm..didn't know about Tvtropes.org. Will take a little visit at some point.
