More page reworks.

Getting slightly tired and overworked and slightly low, mood wise. I'm really falling behind in answering emails-letters-comments and I feel bad about it. Doing an experiment this weekend, seeing how fast I go trying to clean up storyboards on my computer at home. It's no Cintiq, but...*eyes little Wacom tablet*

Posting some more reworked pages for the Water Tribe AU. I'm starting to wonder if I should stop posting these here, especially since I am getting to a point where it's just some polishing (some new pages this time, for easier read).
Maybe I'll just upload them directly to DA, and keep the space on LJ for the final part 4 (which hopefully I'll continue soon- come on new episodes!!). It would confuse people less, instead of jumping back and forth between chapters.


Some polishing, some pages added, letting some panels breathe more. I will try and not redraw everything. But Lao wants me to prettify him!!

I don't mind you posting them here in LJ (I like it better since I check the LJ more often than DA XD) but it's up to you really :)

Good luck on work! Are you working from home did you have to bring work home to finish it? And LOL on pretty Lao ^^

Same here. I actually put the LJ on my web comics list for easy checking, since I'm making more of a point of saving the edits for ease of reading for some people in the house over here.

Then I'll keep posting here for easier updates. Making life easier, I'm all for it.

Looks like I'll keep posting it on LJ- looks like more people are watching them here. It wouldn't be nice of me to just stop it then.
It was bringing work at home- we usually have to be at the studio, in case something happens and we're needed.

I think if people get confused, I better direct them to DA and tell them to keep reading it there in order. It's all I can do.

I like the expansions you've made! It definitely reads a lot easier than the first time around... I still feel bad for that poor family D:

I enjoy seeing the reworks on LJ! But of course I'll accept whatever you find is more efficient for you (especially if that means more of ch 4 >:3 ...do it!!)

I really shouldn't listen to Zhao and his advices...I may just light California on fire, what with all the paper in this apartment! But thank you :) Cheered me up.

Maybe moar comics, but no new new added pages for part four for a little while. Just corrections.
Ah, but dancing Zuko and Iroh are just perfect. Did make me smile! :D

Actually I would rather happy if you kept posting them on Lj because I never check DA that much anymore. XD

Zhao: Powerhungry as always!

Think I'll keep posting here- seems it's what the majority prefers.
Yay democracy!
Zhao- always will be power hungry. That will not change.

Great stuff - best strip I've come across on the interwebs - they should publish this - I remember reading this before, but where and when I originally read this, that I cannot say... so I am confused - but it's all good, I can deal with it - ;-)

Comments and suggestions -

Smooth flow on this sequence - all in one take almost -
96 - nice page design - is there missing a little mouth connector thingy on the word balloon? (On page 91, panel 2, there's a little word balloon glitch, btw)
97- Cool pirates - maybe put '...and enjoying it' in a separate box for a little dramatic pause effect to accentuate the humor.
98- Is fine, but I'd see more closeups instead of panel 2 to go with the text in boxes 2 & 3 -
100 - very nice page - I'd see a haughty looking close-up shot of Zhao looking down at the slaves between panels 4 & 5 (Panel 2, with the hand close-up, although it helps the flow, doesn't seem necessary to me - close-ups with hands are cool, but there are already two of them in the previous pages...)

Thanks for sharing - take care!

It's so awesome!
A powerful story with themes as old as time. Oh Zhao, your mother must have been exasperated with you as a child if this is how you behave. XD

*snicker* I have alerts set on LJ for when you post, so... Whatever you decide. :thumbsup:

Second page - "unstability" should be "instability."

Lovely update, Zhao is soooo deliciously callous!

D'Oh!
Thanks for catching that- I'll correct it on the DA pages.

Wah! All this time I never realized you had a livejournal! Apparently I have a lot of comics to catch up on now! <D~~ Also, are you able to come to Anime North this year? (Or are you stuck in California?) I hope I can see you sometime this summer. I have a present for you. :3

I've been lurking left and right on the web.
No Anime North, I'm afraid. I am indeed still stuck in California for work. I'll only be going out to visit family, friends and a few conventions. Hopefully, we'll cross paths along the way (a present? Awwwww! Thank you in advance!).

Awww, that's too bad. Well, unfortunately there's no SDCC for me this year but I'll be at TCAF for sure.

Beautiful, I love your comics.


But every time I start to feel a *little* sympathy for Zhao...I remember this part and I want to sic Nauja on him! The B@$%@&D!!!!!!

Where can I see Water Tribe pages past 101 onward?
I discovered your Water Tribe comic on DeviantArt, about a month ago and I'm totally hooked. My family is working our through the Avatar DVDs now, and none of us are in the target demographic (me: 36, husband: 45, kid: 3). Anyway, I'd love to read the Water Tribe pages past 100, but I can't find them in sequence. Have you posted them?

Re: Where can I see Water Tribe pages past 101 onward?
Thank you for reading, glad that you're enjoying it so far.
What you can see on DA are the reworked pages, and I haven't had the time to rework anything past 100 yet.
But, if you want to see the first draft, part 3 can be found here:

Note that page numbers have changed since the reworks. The story will be pretty much the same, a few added pages left and right for a better flow.

Part 4 has started, and pages can be found here.

Part 4 is on hold for now- gotta wait for the serie to end now.

Wow I just stumbled across your comics and they are wonderful! I haven't seen Avatar, but I'm definitely going to check it out. You do great work and I love the story. It reminds me of my favorite comic, Elfquest. I will defnitely be back here for more! (For what it's worth, I vote for putting them on LJ as well as DA).
