Heat!

It's hot. Really hot. And I know it's not the worse of the summer heat yet. I'm just waiting another 30 minutes or so before going out for groceries (gotta walk there!).
My roommate was really nice, and got me an AC. Thank you Phil! I'll be able to sleep and work in my room.
Speaking of work, had a good productive day yesterday at the studio so I took today off.
Maybe I should have gone to the studio for the powerful AC though. Ah well.


Mostly tweaks once again, plus some panels I reworked for one of the page. Should read better now.









There's a lot of shots of Lao's boots, Ha ha! That's just starting the silly song "Shoes" in my head all over again.

Big thank you to a few people who did fun and nice Water Tribe related creative things. Makes the whole heat bearable:

The only two people who possibly have very low flirting abilities, and somehow it works!

This is going to look totally awesome- and the little Zhao doll? So perfect. Perfect for voodoo spells too, ha ha!

Aww...Very sweet. They're not fighting for once.

Alexds1- who not only did great illustrated commisions, but did this funny pic of melting Nauja (so hot!).

I probably missed a few. Sorry about that. They are all appreciated.

Talking of heat, time to grab my courage, some sunscreen and walk to get food.

It's just barely starting to get warm here in Minnesota. =) There was a terrific cool breeze all day, and perfect bicycling weather. I went for a short ride!

I myself took a nap on my bed for about a half hour; it's right next to a window that faces west, so between 3 PM and 5 there's this glorious square of warmth that I just stretch out on like cat and mmmph.

Good times.

Sounds like perfect weather, when heat can be appreciated, not fought.

The last page made me laugh out loud!

Believe me, I was giggling the whole time while doing it. Especially the first panel. It was just too much fun to do.

ahhhh, if only reading about the Northern Water Tribe and the antics therein would make us feel better... I heard Burbank (or the Valley, really) has it worse ;_;

On the bright side, we do have some awesome beaches where it is generally 20 degrees cooler.

Since I can't go to the beach (or the NWT), I'll just have to content myself with reading about it (and imagining all that ice... which would *probably* get really old really fast... but right now it sounds OH SO NICE)

Fsh- I WISH that would help too!
*sigh*
I don't dare go to the beach- a bit too self conscious. Plus, no swimsuit. Goes with the self conscious thing.

Haha! You have a cosplayer, Nauja's canon now! XD

Awesome, awesome stuff. :D I love your action, and it's great when that bit of European comic exaggeration comes through in your style. Yey Kwon!

May. 19th, 2008 04:36 am (UTC)
I am really honored by the cosplay! *blushes*. Not enough to make it canon XD But lots of people will ask "who the heck are you supposed to be!?"
Can never escape the european comic stuff- grew up with it :)

Oh yay it's officer Kwon! :D Er... right? I AM SO BAD W/ THE NAMES.

Wow the Nauja costume!! Awesome xD

You got it right- you got more memory than I do!
The costume is going to look great! And with a little Zhao doll to punch and make miserable, it will be perfect XD

Ahhh love 'em. And nice Zhaobutt shot.

It only STARTED getting warmer in ol' Vancouver, here. Yesterday high was 26C. We had a very, very long winter and kind of skipped spring, I guess.

Hooray for AC! =D

I was listening to the canadian news (yay, CBC), and they were telling how hot it was in the Vancouver region. Unseasonably warm, almost.
My parents' place is down to 12C! *sigh*
Ok, so they are in the northern part of Quebec, but still. They want some of my heat. I'd gladly send them some.

The thumbnails alone are making me squee.

*just squees*

Butt rescued by--KLONG! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Stay cool, if you can!

(Aww, the little Zhaoka doll!)

Thank you! I always liked doing that shot of Lao getting clubbed.
Will stay cool, even if that means visiting the frozen section of grocery stores all day!

Haha! That was a cheap shot, Zhao! XD

Nice links too, the Nauja costume looks so cool~~

Well, Lao should have just shut up and kept fighting instead of mocking. You don't see Zhao talking in the middle of a fight ;)
She's supposed to have the costume at SDCC, if she can make it. *crosses fingers to see it in person!*

Thank you!
Ha ha, I don't feel sorry for him either. It was...satisfying, instead XD
I'll be facing the heat with my trusty fan and soon to be installed AC.

Love the panel with Zhao landing on the ship's deck with his cape on fire. Very...guh, I don't even know the word. Epic?

You draw action very well. To convey that sense of movement with a still picture, you are quite talented. I'm jealous.

:D

Thank you- a whole lot of hit and miss in the action. I'm still learning. I did redo a half page so it would work better. The worse part is to try and keep it clear.

Ha ha! Now you make me really want to draw a little Edna screaming that at Zhao.
Maybe tomorrow during lunch break XD

GYEE! I love all of the action 8D SO INTENSE. I especially love Zhao's actiony pose in the third page, third panel? Very dynamic!

Lao makes me think of like...Psycho Azula's male counterpart or something xD Also...these shoes are $300 effing dollars. LET'S GET 'EM. xDDDDD

I love Zhao simply for the very last panel of the last page x3 HA!

Many thanks. Still getting used to drawing action sequences for comics. I should grab a few Naruto ones for inspiration. I guess Angyo Onshi will do in the meantime.
Darn you, putting even more the Shoes song in my head. (not that Lao would fight with his 300$ shoes...)

Because you deserve to know how far the good ship zhaozula has sailed off... http://psychoe.deviantart.com/art/Water-Tribe-Zhaozula-86088980

I can't stand this 100 degree weather either and these cloudless skies are a pain. DX I actually can't wait to go to work either for the AC. ;_;

I loved the scene when you first did it and I love it een more now!

It's wierd how the rest of the internets is complaining how hot it's getting when it's starting to get pretty cold here down under. XD
rufftoon

Thank you. A tweak here and there, especially on one of those pages, may have helped a bit.
Guess you'll complain about heat when we start moaning about the cold. But not me! I never moan about the cold. I just dress up for it! In heat...at some point you just can't take any more layers off.

I know your pain, darling. I really do. Being in about the same area as you. >_< :is dying of swealter:
