More Water Tribe tweaks

Tweaked and cleaned these pages while watching 300- some beautiful scenes, yummy men, but the story was...meh. It was definitely an eye candy film but low brain nourishment. It's fine, we need those once in a while.

Anyway- just some page polishing- no new added pages.










I'm slowly approaching a point where I won't need to tweak the pages- yesh! In fact, I'm slowly starting to cannibalize some of the old panels and adding elements or whole frames in the new pages.
But there will be new added pages- I need to add more "meat", especially during the time Zhao spends training, plus with those officers that are trying to finish him. Ah, what a bit of back tracking can do...

Next, a bit more of part 4. It's a nice change of pace to do new material :)

Those are so awesome. I love "Take your shirt off!" girl. XD I also like the gradual introduction of Iroh. Overall, I think these pages are all pulled of nicely. c:

Thanks!
Not much changed since version 1, but the "Take your shirt off" lady still works nicely. I was not going to change that.

Ah, the wife of the inn owners- she likes angry fighting men. And look who she's stuck with. Ah well, the guests are interesting at least.

You know, you may have a point. We might have not noticed any plot anyway XD

Fourth page, third panel, the bubble of the Owner that first says "Go get the guards!" still has the full circle drawn around "Go!" instead of the line to the branch being erased to join the two word bubbles together properly.

My noticing things aside, I LOVE your pages and the grumpiness of Zhao!

Ooops! Missed that one. Thanks for catching that, it will be fixed for the DA version.
And I do count on people noticing things- cause me, obviosuly, still has the brains and powers of noticing thing that my dad has (none).

Nah, had to keep that. Gotta keep Yueh's grudge alive for part 3.

Bro does not have access to a computer where he can see images in the hospital... Would it be ok if I printed a few pages for him to see or would that not be cool?

No problemo with that. Hope your bro gets better soon!

As I told you before, I like how this story is going. It's nicely written and it let you with the expectation of wondering what could happen. Really nice indeed.
Tell me something, did Iroh still have his muscular contidion?
rufftoon
Feb. 4th, 2008 06:06 am (UTC)
I think Iroh has eased back into his more relaxed, enjoying life condition. The belly is back.

wow, Iroh and "take your shirt off" in the same batch of pages!
these are impressive indeed!

The landlady just wants to see shirtless men even though Zhao have forgotten how to Agni Kai. :D Heehee...

Well, she has tastes. I'm sure she's picky when it comes to shirtless men.

You ask me, the landlady has been spying on Zhao when he takes those hot sprint baths.
Your eyes may just be super sharp- I changed Zhao's pose just a tiny bit, but also changed the angle ever so slightly.

See? Sharp eyes!
And thanks for that typo- it will be fixed for the DA post.
And hey, you're not bothering me- you're noticing stuff I missed! That's always appreciated.

I love it! "Agni what?" is my fav thing ever. Is it just me or does the inn-keeper's daughter remind anyone else of Onji and her boyfriend from the headband episode?
rufftoon
Feb. 4th, 2008 04:17 pm (UTC)
Someone had mentionned a certain similarity with Onji too- I say it's due to the similar hairstyle (there's gotta be similarities, being in the same nation, right?...Or is it me being lazy...)

These panels teach us a valuable lesson. Zhao gets all the ladies.

I love how you give the minor characters distinct faces, it really suggests personality as well as makes them memorable. I am especially fond of the landlord's wife. She's got the best dead-pan expressions. :D
rufftoon

Ha ha, yes! He even gets the ones he doesn't want XD
Thanks! It is fun to make secondary characters. They need lurve too.

Meat and Zhao? What happened ot the cake? *snicker*

The "take your shirt off" thing... LMAO!

Cake will always be first and foremost in Zhao's heart.
