Little update

Not much happening these days, just trying to relax- parents coming for a visit next week, and bought tickets to go see Jungua- a show with Chinese acrobats and Shaolin Monks doing demonstrations.
I'll totally be thinking of Ty Lee and Firebenders. I'm bringing my sketchbook!



This is a place that I found hard to write- to carry the ideas accross as clearly and as short as possible. It still reads too clunky. It will need revision.

I like Zhao's furry cloak. I've always wanted to go see Chinese Acrobatics. I hope you get a lot of sketches from it :D

I wonder how many sketches I'll be able to do. I'll probably be too busy going "ooooooooooh"...but I will try.

Yay, more WT! I love you in a not-quite-personal-but-still-admiring-your-work kind of way.

waterbender's furs over fire-nation uniform? WIN!

At least the Water Tribe cloaks are warmer than the Fire Nation ones.

You know Zhao- always going for the handsome-awesome combination (and part time bastard) ;)

I also like Zhao with the water-tribe cloak, I wonder if its a metaphor for how things will turn out?

I'm continually impressed at how good your english is considering it isn't your native language. The only thing that I notice you doing is adding some extra s's in some places like "...look for any excuse(s) to start a new war..." or "resist the pressure(s) of..." but to be honest those mistakes are sort of endearing.

If it is a metaphor, it's one that sneaked in my subconscious.
Heehee, your last comment reminded me of a Kids In The Hall sketch, in which the character Buddy Cole (the very gay one) once said "What's wrong with a few extra S'ses?"
You can bet he talked with a lisp

That being said, I'll have to correct all these mistakes one day. Me and my ssss.

Oh thank you! The new episode was far too short and taunting, and I desperately needed some Avatar-flavored goodness. And this is some of the best kind of goodness!

It doesn't read clunky to me, and I'm notoriusly picky. Maybe it's that the art is so good in storytelling as well as sheer craftsmanship.
Are we gonna see any more of that adorable little Fire Nation soldier with the crush? Bless, he was so sha.

Holy snap, and I just realized. 122 of these? You're amazing!

Zhao in fire nation uniform + Water Tribe fur cloak = *drool* Lurve

Hopefully...he would wear the fur cloak shirtless. *drools more* <3
rufftoon

If it wasn't that darn cold outside, maybe shirtless.
(I think secretly, he enjoys taunting the fangirls)

Doesn't read clunky to me: reads just fine.

Still...could use streamlining. I'll see if I ever get to revise these. Nice to know I may not be too far off the mark though. Thanks!

OH AWESOME. Nothing like real life inspiration! I hope Zuzu isn't still gullible as ever..and this story is getting sweeter! Have fun at Jungua!
rufftoon
Sep. 24th, 2007 02:08 pm (UTC)
Oh yesh, I can't wait to see the show.
Zuzu, gullible? Naaaaah...ok, still a bit. But not as much. It's the political pressure he might not be used to. I wonder if he can become more tyrannical against his officers...

You know, for roughs, they look even more incredible on my new monitor. If course, this thing is pretty wide, as well as flat, so...

*sigh* I wish I had an awesome flat monitor- haven't worked with one I was happy with yet. I'll have to keep looking!

Jungua sounds great. I hope you and your folks have fun!

For more braincrack, after watching the first episode of season 3, the 7-year-old is somehow suggesting Fire Nation Jet. I'm not sure it'd work so well as Zhaoka...


[Editing, because editing actually makes me contented and today is crankynosleepday:

Might be cleaner to say "If they are after Zhao, we should send him away -- quickly!" (Would they say Zhao or Zhaoka? Or would it depend on the person?)

Typo: strenght should be strength.]

Zhao has plan! Plan to get his revenge on the enemies and help the Water Tribe at the same time! And to the victor go... the ability to say, "Oh, No, Mr. Fire Lord Sir! I was loyal, and these people are making it up that I wasn't! I never dealt with him except to lure him into a trap!" >_>

Fire Nation Jet...haha, maybe he could hook up with Fire Nation Hahn (something foxysquid played around with :D)

Ah, could edit- nice and snappy (makes note in notebook)
Some will say Zhao since he left the tribe, others will say Zhaoka. That Horuk still refers to him as Zhaoka could *almost* be a compliment.
Darn it, I keep mixing up how to write stregth all the time!!
Haha, totally- the victor gets to get away with the excuse :D

Zhao is very attractive when he has a clever plan.
*cheers you on*
rufftoon
Sep. 24th, 2007 02:33 pm (UTC)
So you like him for his brains rather than his body? (joking) ;)

Zhao's got a plan! Zhao's got a plan! YAY PLAN!ZHAO.

Now that could go either very well, or very wrong. His past plans have not been...great successes.
Then again, this is his story now ;)

That's something you don't see everyday: a Water Tribe cloak over a Fire Nation uniform.

Looks like Zhao's really conflicted.
rufftoon
Sep. 24th, 2007 07:03 pm (UTC)
Well, he is kind of stuck between worlds now. His loyalty is starting to shift, once again...

Zhao: Okay, first, I need you guys to prop up a box. Then, my men will place a carrot underneath it. When the ships come in to investigate, we pull the string and BAM! We've got them!

Simple, yet brilliant!
