Slowly surfacing back

Sometimes, I got to listen to ye olde body more often.
I've overworked myself slightly recently, and on wednesday, I crashed asleep at 9pm.
9 friggin' pm.
Good thing I like my work though. Makes everything bareable.
And this weekend, TCAF. It will be nice to see more friendly faces outside of normal work.

Didn't draw well these past few days. Ah well, here are the results...

In the last post, I had asked people for stuff to draw to kick start myself...all the results were horrible, except for the pigeon one (which makes reference to Sylvain Chomet's film "La Vieille Dame Et Les Pigeons" (The Old Lady and The Pigeons).
And a shirtless moment of insanity creeped in. That always helps somehow.

Shiz....I wish I had your awesome drawing skillz -_- the movement in everything you do makes me just want to cry~
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:13 am (UTC)
My drawing skills don't always want to cooperate. Gah. That makes me wanna cry.

I hope you're all rested now! I hate it when I over exert myself...you just become so tired, that you're not able to do anything D: BOO. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be invincible or something. I'm gonna need to become Super Woman or something, if I wanna keep up with all the art assignments I'm about to get this year in college o___O

Btw, the ZHAO!SHIRTLESS!MADNESS is beyond amazing XD
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:16 am (UTC)
Gotta admit, I'm getting old too and all nighter are hard on the system. I don't recuperate as fast as you young folks ;)

Shirtless Madness is always fun when it strikes. Especially when it was originally on an official work piece of paper, and I had to rip it away so my boss wouln't see (heck, it's not work related, is it...)
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:02 am (UTC)
Y'know, the sound effects are half the fun in your doodles. Mng! Gruu! <3
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:21 am (UTC)
I have no freakin' idea how to write the sound a pigeon makes. "Coo" is too nice, "Groo" is too...Sergio Aragones.
In the short film "The Old Lady and the pigeons", the characters don't talk but do let out some grunting and other weird noises. "Mng!" was as close as I could get to one of them.
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:38 am (UTC)
Haha, oh no, 9pm! Hopefully you're feeling less crazy.

I liked these pages, even if you didn't... hopefully there'll still be time to get some of Lao's loot for a teensy promotion.

I guess the quality and durability of Fire Nation shirts has really decreased :/ Haha though I imagine Zhao would be more amused to flex those pecs and have the shirt fly into piece XD
Aug. 17th, 2007 01:42 pm (UTC)
Feeling less crazy for a few days. Then crazyness begins again. That's how it goes.

Maybe Zhao buys shirts he knows he can tear apart with maximum show-offness.

Awr, thanks. Guess we're all our worse critics in a way.

What work ethics? I count on the pressure of deadlines to finish stuff.

Hehe, who knows, maybe these two in some weird multiverse place do hang out together...and compare fancy collectable things (and a certain charming Elizabeth)

Your failure is an EPIC FAIL...failure at failing meaning success of course. Only you would call your work horrible.
Aug. 17th, 2007 02:34 pm (UTC)
Failing at failure...hmmm...something to ponder.
All artists are their own worse self critic (but if I ever go back on these pages, I'm straightening them up!)
Aug. 17th, 2007 07:01 am (UTC)
"Oh my" indeed!
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:00 pm (UTC)
Gotta love those "oh my!" moments.
I can't wait to get to "holy f@%?" moments (If I do, I'll probably never post those doodles)
Aug. 17th, 2007 07:36 am (UTC)
Oh, very neat. (Oh my, indeed.)
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:00 pm (UTC)
Aug. 17th, 2007 07:41 am (UTC)
Oh gods SHIRTLESS MADNESS and pigeons! Just too awesome. x3 ♥
Aug. 17th, 2007 02:34 pm (UTC)
Good thing these two things aren't happening together. Pigeons and shirtlesness sounds messy.
Aug. 17th, 2007 07:46 am (UTC)
omg.. that's my new ship right there.

Zhao/Old Lady.
Aug. 17th, 2007 02:35 pm (UTC)
if you've ever seen the short film...Zhao might be in trouble more than a ship thing (Zhao scared? You bet! She's a scary old lady!)

Your doodles got me laughing! (my brother is starting to think I'm a wack...)

The pigeon segment kept me bursting my gut off. XD

Shirtless Madness! OH MY indeed! <3
Aug. 17th, 2007 04:53 pm (UTC)
Pfeh, let your brother thinks what he wants. ;)
We're all crazy here anyway.
Aug. 17th, 2007 12:18 pm (UTC)
O ye gods, shirtless madness Zhao is just too hilarious! XD That one just killed me silly.

Very like Zhao to take an unconventional approach. ♥
Aug. 17th, 2007 04:52 pm (UTC)
Always fun to have Zhao doing something unexpected and unconventional (until the next shirtless madness attack...) :D
Aug. 17th, 2007 12:22 pm (UTC)
Wow, for an offday there's some pretty cool stuff here... particularly the shirtless Zhao :D

85 PAGES, wow, that came up fast...

Aug. 17th, 2007 03:11 pm (UTC)
Re: offdays
Shirtless Zhao attacks can happen anytime. Better be prepared (with pen and paper).

I know! Can't believe I've planned so many pages already. And still more to come. Eeep!
Aug. 17th, 2007 12:36 pm (UTC)
Does he... have a turtle-dove on his head? They think he's a pear tree? No, wait, those'd be partridges. Oooo, do we know why his minion there is so loyal to him now?! (Yay, Shipping Wars!)

*poings at you poingily*
Aug. 17th, 2007 03:09 pm (UTC)
Haha, we'll have to make a Twelve Days of Christmas song with some Zhao flavour thrown in at some point ;)

And I don't know if it is THE reason Kwon follows Zhao around but hey! I'm open to the possibility.

Doing something you love for a living is truly a blessing, and I hope you are taking care of yourself! I love the little details in the background in the first panel, and the 4th picture of insane wit is awesome as always..cute pigeons!
Aug. 17th, 2007 03:45 pm (UTC)
I am indeed grateful to have found work in a domain I love.
Thank you very much!
Aug. 17th, 2007 02:33 pm (UTC)
*snicker* Literal shirtless madness, and *squee* comic ♥. And we all need sleep at some point, even insomniacs and the dedicated. Jet's eyebrows of DOOOOOOM! are raised in a salute to you.
Aug. 17th, 2007 03:33 pm (UTC)
An eyebrow salute from Jet is something! Thanks :D
As for sleep...yeah, it gets its revenge on me every once in a while.

*weeps for the beauty of shirtless madness*

OH zhao! All these difficult decisions to make! It is almost like some sadistic lady is making your life difficult! =ppp Love the pages, especially the second page with the panel of them all looking over the side of the ship at the approaching ships.
Aug. 17th, 2007 03:31 pm (UTC)
I am a sadistic lady out to make his life difficult, he knows it and can't do a thing about it. Mwahahaha (actually, he probably keeps me from drawing decently...)
Beside, I think he enjoys the attention, good or bad ;)

Aug. 17th, 2007 03:13 pm (UTC)
Awr, thank you :)
Zhao is going to get away with at least ONE thing from Zhao's ship- even if it's just a good old Water Tribe war club.
Aug. 17th, 2007 03:53 pm (UTC)
Brilliant as always!
Aug. 17th, 2007 04:48 pm (UTC)
You're too kind. *blushes*
Aug. 17th, 2007 03:58 pm (UTC)
That sketch of Zhao getting shirtless reminded me of 300 D:
I've been exposed to too much 'MADNESS??? etc. etc.' parodies :/

Shirtless moments of insanity are always so helpful :>

Oooh a battle approaches! This should be fun! I wonder who's on the ships :| Can't be good if he's getting ready to fight...
Aug. 17th, 2007 04:50 pm (UTC)
Hehe, Zhao should totally go 300 on us at some point.
Zhao has a pretty good idea who's coming. Lao has hinted at it. Some fire nation officer looking for revenge for an old broken arms affair...
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:09 pm (UTC)
Although you may not be thrilled about these pages, we always are! And the last shot of Zhao on the third page is pretty fantastic.
And ahah, so THAT'S why Officer Kwon is so loyal to Zhao. ;)

Take care of yourself! Don't die, please.
Aug. 17th, 2007 07:16 pm (UTC)
Glad you like them (though I'll probably go back to them one day and hack part of them to pieces. Grrr. Or maybe I won't 'cause I'll be all tired to think of something better).
As for Officer Kwon...well...it's one possibility. I mean, if Zhao could just stop showing off like that...
Aug. 17th, 2007 05:58 pm (UTC)
ah~ take care of yourself, Johane! Well, I'm glad that you at least got plenty of rest. Wish Kazu and I could see you at TCAF! Tell everyone hello and have a good time~

P.s. shirtless madness hehehe... you draw bodies good. :B
Aug. 17th, 2007 07:19 pm (UTC)
TCAF should be nice and relaxing (though I do have to bring some work along- just rough thumbnails).
Awwwr, I miss you guys! Will definitely say hello to everyone.
As for drawing...meh, I messed up his arms and wrists, but who's looking there, right? ;)
Aug. 18th, 2007 05:29 am (UTC)
Oh, I hope your body will rest and gain strength once more!
Take care yes? ;__;

P.S. Your drawings will and never cease to be awesome plus love.
Aug. 20th, 2007 03:29 am (UTC)
Body's doign what it can- getting old, recuperates less well than before. *sigh*
Still, not doing too bad.

Awr, you're too kind. Thank you :)
Aug. 19th, 2007 07:59 pm (UTC)
The pages look great, and the doodles were laugh-out-loud funny!

I wish I knew the pigeon reference though.
Aug. 20th, 2007 03:31 am (UTC)
Thank you very much!
I hop you can see the short film with the old lady and the pigeons by Sylvain Chomet. It is a weird, very dark humour story.
