One measly page

Due to migraine-headache, lot less work was done than wanted. Must catch up on all sides now. Brain doing much better at the end of the day, so I'm functional again.
Bit of time for ONE little Water Tribe page...just to end up on a cliffhanger 'till the next update ('cause I'm evil like that).




Really, seriously thinking of making a nicer version of the thing...at least, the first part, see how it goes. Not inked, don't think I'd have the time, but nicer pencils and stuff.
Probably would do a mini comic out of it. Nothing big, just photocopies. Anyone interested in putting in a little sketch for a gallery I'd put at the end of it? Throwing the idea ball now, 'cause I'd hate to ask at the last minute. Probably would try and get it ready for APE next year.
I said TRY!! We'll see what comes up next first. No promises.

Even if it's just one page, in the said one page, there is great AWESOME/expression/AWESOMEAGAIN

ZHAO NOooOoo

I feel so conflicted about the guy, at one point I hates him for hittin teh wimmens, and then I loves him and feels bad when he's about to get pwned. TToTT!!!

P.S. Hope evil-migraine stays away and that you're feeling alrights!

Zhao's definitely good for love-hate relationships.
It's good to be reminded he's got that core bastard, but no one is totally evil, so...
Evil migraine seems to have lifted off. Still, I'll treat my head kindly for the next day or so, just in case.

Oh, that's excellent! He recovers his cool. He makes calm remarks. He LOSES HIS COOL ENTIRELY! That's just lovely. I can hear it. *squee*

Mind, Yueh may or may not have forgotten to mention that Zhao also breaks arms. Go, go, Zhao!
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 01:15 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! Glad it works well :)
When Yueh talks about Zhao, he never mentions the arm breaking. He does say that Zhao's old, ugly, has the manners of a barbarians, bad breath, etc...
Oh! And he can't firebend so you can kick his @$$.

If Zhao gets Lao to burn down his own ship -- or at least most of his goods -- by judicious use of running around corners and trying to break Lao's arms with his water tribe clubsword, like as not... I will fall over cackling and worship you for at least five minutes.

Just sayin'. O;D
rufftoon

Lao's ship is a good old metal fire nation ship- thy don't burn off that easily.
As for the rest...hmmm...wait and see.

Noooo! Zhao! Don't die!

. . . oh dear, I have fallen, haven't I. _Great_ page.
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 01:17 am (UTC)
Oh yesh, you have fallen and it looks like there's still a long way to fall too.
Hopefully there's a net down there to catch you ;)

Aren't you glad I got you hooked on Avatar, incandescens?

(I'm sure glad. It gives me someone else to squee at when rufftoon puts up a new page.)

PS: forgot to say that I hope that all headaches flee you, Rufftoon!

Okay, I would just like to go on record saying that this page is completely badass. HOW WILL ZHAO ESCAPE!? (Does he figure out firebending? Huh? Does he does he huh? *bounces up and down*)
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 01:20 am (UTC)
Zhao doesn't escape...
He goes out there and FIGHTS!
Might take a while to update (unless I cave in and do a few more)...sorry for leaving on another cliffhanger (or maybe I'm not sorry. hmmm...)

awesome, as always

uh...zhao...if you can...now would be a good time to throw some of that fire out of your pocket...if possible...
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 04:04 am (UTC)
Thank you!
Zhao throwing fire out of his pockets?
You do know now that I just want to yell "HOT POCKETS!"
at Zhao :D

He's in deep shit now...damn. >P
I wonder if Zhao can break Lao's arms before barbequeing him alive? >)
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 01:55 pm (UTC)
Problem will be to get close enough to Lao. Not easy.

Heck, he was getting firebending lesson just before, and couldn't even light up a scrap of paper!
Migraine gone poof *cross fingers it doesn't come back too soon*

awesome icon, can I borrow? Will credit!

Any idea where to find the rest of the opening sequence?

Thanks! I actually ment if you knew if the rest of the sequence was in icon form somewhere, but you are right, I can probably do it myself ;)

Way to express your anger. :)

Go Zhao, break his arms!
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 01:57 pm (UTC)
Firebenders tend to let out a lot of sparks when angry.
Zhao is definitely aiming for the arms...and the legs...and anything breakable.

Very, very well laid out. If I saw this comic for sale somewhere, I'd buy it...

Hope you'll like what's coming up next- using lunch break to do fun layouts :)

Cliffhanger nooo Why are you so evil??! D: I hope Zhao recollects his firebending like he did when he was fighting the molebear D: I'm just sitting here making this face mostly D:

Rest assured this will be the best thing ever photocopied in the history of photocopies, if you end up doing it... and of course I'd throw you a Zhao sketch for it, since I throw you Zhao sketches all the time regardless.

Hope your migraines are gone, my mom gets them all the time and I can tell (second-hand) how much they suck.
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 04:26 pm (UTC)
You do some pretty awesome cliffhangers too, you know how much fun these are. :)

Sweetness! I was already thinking of asking you for the molebear hunt sketch you did, but if you have time for a new one, great!
No hurry though- this is still very much at early planning stage. Keep churning those "The Meek" pages in the meantime, so you also have some Awesome material to show at APE next year (I hope so...or at least, another of the big cons :D)
Migraine gone, back on my feet. Been lucky 'til now, they don't last too long *knock on wood*

Lao always does things stylishly. You should see when he executes someone...
Nah, not gonna happen like Rush Hour. Updates soon for some fire action!

Awesome page! Especially the timing, man.

A nicer version?? Wow, I think it already looks pretty great. But I would totally pick up a copy. And I'd be honored to draw a sketch, if you'd have me.
rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 11:17 pm (UTC)
Eh, lots of little things I'd like to fix, so might as well go over the whole thing.
I would be honoured to have a sketch from you. But no hurry yet- I'll send an official call once it is more solid.

rufftoon
Aug. 7th, 2007 11:19 pm (UTC)
Ah, which one of your wishes might come true...hmmm...find out soon!
You would most certainly have a copy, that's for sure!
Having a sketch from you would be three shades of awesome- but no hurry for it: nothing is certain yet so wait for my more official call.

Gallery
How cool--I'd love to try submitting a sketch! But will you only have the mini-comic at APE? What do you think about Comic-Con '08?

In any case, thanks for the online version! Zhao's and the alternate future story have both been just incredible stuff!

Best wishes,

Reuben

Re: Gallery
IF it gets done, I would most certainly have it for comicon- it's just APE happens before it, and I would like to have something more or less new to present (even if it's not my characters...darn heck, I'm having way too much fun doing these!)
Would love to see your submitted sketch- but no need to do it just yet. Better wait until I make it more official, and I promise, it won't be last minute.

Yay for more of the Adventures of Water Tribe Zhao! (Anything to keep me distracted by the memory of a Zuko/Mai kiss on the the Season 3 trailer. *shudder*)

Love the facial expressions and body language. Hope your migraine goes away!
rufftoon
Aug. 8th, 2007 03:51 am (UTC)
That Zuko/Mai kiss is not gonna go away I'm afraid (and I can't wait for the trailer to be uploaded on Turbo Nick...though I seem to have trouble seeing anything from Turbo Nick USA, but not Turbo Nick Germany. Hurray Avatar in German!!)

Migraine gone, back on tracks.

Awesomely drawn expressions and the bottom panel is brilliant as well..(the words "awesome" and "brilliant" have been used numerous times in the comments I have sent throughout the times. Please forgive my lack of vocab but these words I feel are the only ones that do your work justice. Also, I have just received the August issue of Nickmag and your Avatar comic was hilarious and FAR TOO SHORT. They should give you the whole magazine to work with..lovely.)(Sorry if I sound too prattly ..)
rufftoon
Aug. 8th, 2007 04:38 pm (UTC)
Thanks ever so much fo ryour kind words *blushes*

For the Avatar magazine special, they gave me a few more pages to play around with. Had to share the space with other awesome artists, so I'm not taking too much space either.
Hope people will enjoy the stories in it when the mag is out. Can't wait, haven't seen the whole thing finished :D

I've been following this comic for a while... But I'm usually more of a lurker. I just want to say that your art is aaaaaamazing, and this comic is the greatest. And also, when I saw the thumbnail sized version of this page, for some reason I though "You can't firebend" was "YOU CAN'T READ!!" On that note! Thumbs up!
rufftoon
Aug. 8th, 2007 09:29 pm (UTC)
Hello fellow lurker (I do a lot of that lurking thing too).
Thanks so much for your kind words. These pages are just WIP and would need some revisions but in the meantime, glad you enjoy.
At thumbnail size, I would have also read "you can't read" :D

Bat-shit craziness works best with good timing. :)

Love the page!

Thanks! It was short and sweet, but fun :)
