Nothing new here...

Haven't done much this weekend (bliss!), just a bit of cleaning and loafing around. So not much to say.

Did some Water Tribe, part 3 page tweaks. That's all they are, just very small tweaks from version one. There will be more changes in the coming pages (I'll add more pictures to Nauja's retelling of Lao's attack), but in the meantime...













Since the changes are really minor, I'll post these on DA tonight.

Gosh, I'm rather late to the party, so I hope you don't mind my asking this...

I can't help but notice that the tags on your livejournal only go so far back. So, is there anywhere you have the entirety of Water Tribe posted? I'd love to read it from start to current sometime, but I can't seem to find said start anywhere.

Thanks very much for your help!

Awwww, how could I not help someone with such a cute icon.

Most of the new pages have been uploaded to DA:

Start of Chapter 1: http://noselfcontrol.deviantart.com/art/Water-Tribe-001-69837313
Start of Chapter 2: http://noselfcontrol.deviantart.com/art/Water-Tribe-052-75305375
Start of Chapter 3: http://noselfcontrol.deviantart.com/art/Water-Tribe-096-82062076

But!
These are all reworked pages.
The original version of chapter three (the current one), is here:

There's also the beginning of the last chapter, part 4 here:

This last one is on hiatus, until the season finale of Avatar since I want certain things to connect with what will happen.

Ooh, thanks! I've been trying to pass the WaterTribe links around to my close friends, this helps a lot. :D

All looks pretty stellar. I love reading all of this twice.

Thank you! Glad it's not too boring on the second pass.
(I should tweak some fight scenes soon so that should be fun!)

Haha, I was totally just about to edit my comment because I was scared I sounded sarcastic. What I was going to say:

You write this all so well and the images flow perfectly into one-another and you can just get completely immersed even if not much has been changed... c: ♥♥

Omigosh, looking forward to even better fight scenes. :o

My sarcastic meter must be down, because I didn't detect any.
Well, some parts of the fight scenes are going to be the same, but some do need some extra tweaks. Urk.

He remembers the old name, and refuses it. Doesn't want to hear it again. Though here, he wants to shut her up so Lao doesn't know they know each other.
Good suggestions. I'll change to one version or the other on DA (when I have time, later today).

You realize if some of this sexual tension is not released in ch4 after the hiatus, something in my brain will break :|.

I love the pirate guy's design so much btw. And officer Kwon xD.

>_> ... I should have a clause somewhere of how I can't be held accountable for certain incidents caused by comic reading. We'll see how things go, as part 4 is still getting tweaked.
Thank you- Lao went through a period of "undefined face structure", where his skull kept changing. But now, he's better.

A malleable skull? Good heavens. I'm glad he's better, that sounds horrid even for a ruthless pirate like Lao. :D

The dynamics of the panel where he grabs her, and the closeup just after, are brilliant. Very intense, and you get a good sense that he's gripping her just hard enough to not really hurt her. (Well, probably a little. He's Zhao, control isn't his thing. Not too much, though. Can't have her squawking like...well...a seagull. ^_~)

Ah, by the way, would you mind if I posted the Yue and La picture to my dA? I made it for your comic, so I figure I ought to ask if it would bother you.

Aw, blast it. That was me. In case you couldn't tell from the art reference.

Maybe his malleable skull is what saved him from Zhao's attack with a water tribe club- absorbed the shock and all.
Definitely post your pic! It is yours, and you can do whatever you want with it. No restrictions on my part.

Yee, Najua!

Apparently one of my close pals was trying to see you at the NYCC, he had a press pass and was trying to get interviews with anyone associated with Avatar. He said that everyone turned down interviews, I bet you guys were swamped. XD
rufftoon
Apr. 28th, 2008 03:53 pm (UTC)
If your friend went to the Nick table, yeah everyone was swamped right there.
But I wasn't at the Nick table, neither was Dave Roman. we were busy in our own way, but not swamped like M&B (well, I ain't complaining and they are the stars so they deserve every seconds of recognition.

Ah! I mentioned your name and he said it looked familiar. Apparently they were given a list of people who were guests of the con and what they were associated. I guess he never saw you, though. M... man, the more I hear about the con, the more I wish I'd gone. @_@

YEEK, I just realized something-- on page 111 in the transition from the third to the fourth panel, Zhao switches the position of his hands. The panel should be flipped, but that would break 180º rule. I don't think anyone else has noticed, so it's probably not really that big of a deal. XD
rufftoon
May. 5th, 2008 06:48 am (UTC)
Yeah, I switched his hand around. I guess he was uncomfortable with the other (or me being lazy, and finding drawing that hand easier...)

Do you plan to compile all of them sometime later ?
rufftoon
Apr. 28th, 2008 03:55 pm (UTC)
So far, no. I did compile the first one, but I won't throw much more money out the window that way. All of the pages will be available for viewing, and the best place will be on DA (though someone did start an archive on LJ- thanks again for that).

I like the angle on Lao on the fourth page there.

By the way, how d'you pronounce 'Nauja'? Nawha? Nowja?
rufftoon
Apr. 28th, 2008 03:54 pm (UTC)
Thankees!
I'd pronouce it more like "Nowja"

Lao's face in the last panel of the 5th page always cracks me up XD

Lao is getting really fun to draw. I'll be indulging myself, and bring him back in part four (more than what was shown already).

Howdy - merci beaucoup for the pages - I'm tickled pink that you're able to make sense of my suggestions, says I. :-)

104 - Cool
105 - Gr8 - nice angle on pn. 1
106 - pn. 4 - cool plot twist - sugg.- close-up of zhao with ominous/devious expression + add panel close-up of Zhao freaking out
107 - Cool
108 - Great downshot in pn. 1 - sugg. - change panel order to 1-3-4-2-5
109 - 111 - nice sequence

Random weird fanboy suggestion - have Zhao squint once in a while -

Best,

Skylark

*squees*

Grammargal comments:

106: Would add comma: "With new, more efficient fire navy patrols" -- optional comma after "more efficient," too.

p. 107: "You know the game, you play it too." -- probably want to turn that comma into a dash, a semi-colon, or a period? Two verbs, one comma, they fight! (Like Thunderdome! ...help...)

*squees more*

Honestly, re-reading this is cool.

Am I blind on dA? Because you keep saying you're posting them, but I never get notified that you do! I'm so confused! TT_TT
rufftoon
Apr. 29th, 2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
They are actually posted at the noselfcontrol club http://noselfcontrol.deviantart.com/ , not my account. That may explain your blindness?
beckychan
Apr. 29th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
Ah! Yes! That would explain my blindness very well indeed!
