Small update

A bit tired, one paragraph of storyboard left to do, which I should (I better!) be able to finish tomorrow, plus some corrections. I'll be leaving for Montreal on Tuesday, staying until Sunday. Timing couldn't have been more perfect, as I was told that my new script was slightly delayed and I would only have gotten it this Friday.
(Mike, if you want some copies of Water Tribe, let me know and I'll bring some- we could meet on Thursday?)
Stomach a bit iffy, will be going to bed very very soon.
But first, you know the drill.


What with work, I was only able to rework 3 pages. Very slight tweaks and polish.





Plus, little Cintiq sketch done at work-
Horuk with baby Nauja
a very young Horuk, with his firstborn child, Nauja. He was only 17 when she was born, and didn't really do a lot of work raising her, leaving all of that to his young wife.
He may have been a bit unsure how to handle babies, especially girls.

Gah, I love your stuff so much. Especially the random sketches, for some reason. Just out of curiosity, hold old is Horuk? I thought when we first saw him that he was about Zhao's age, but since then it's felt like he's a bit older.

Perhaps because the sketches are random? Ha ha.
Horuk is about Zhao's age, maybe slightly older but only by a few years.

I must agree, the random sketches really are the best part :3

awwww...I wonder how Nauja was raised exactly? :D

Mostly by her mom. Her father was just this large, untalkative man that brought back food and furs. But the house definitely felt warmer when Horuk was around, something her mom assured her was more than just him radiating heat ;)
(and that's all I know of their story)

Nauja was such an adorable little bundle. :3

She was certainly bundled up very well :)

Lol Kwon reminds me of Alfred for some reason (as in Batman).

Aww little awkward daddy Horuk x3.

Whatever happened to Nauja's mom?

Edit- LOL hay answer all our questions instead of doing your job plz :|||

Kwon definitely has this Alfred feel. I couldn't help it: it's the way the first sketch of him came out like, and I kept him.
Nauja's mom is gone now (nasty disease), but she had a nice good (though slightly short) life and saw both her children grow up. She was gone before the whole North Pole attack by Zhao. She missed all that fun.
I can answer questions now, just before I go to work. The studio only opens its doors at 10am. Since it's a holiday, security starts later.

Ohh Nauja has a sibling then :o. Hee backstory! :D
rufftoon

Eeep, I made tiny typo. She has TWO other siblings:a brother that died during the North Pole attack Zhao made, and a younger sister, also married (she's alive and well).
My brain hasn't dwelled on more details about these two siblings.

Nice sequence -

133- pn. 3 zoom-in - have back of soldier in foreground
pn. 4 - tilt panel +/- 10 % or maybe upshot
pn. 5 - tilt panel +/- 10 %

134 - nice touch with the picking up the club

Bon voyage! Enjoy the cooler weather (it's been pretty mild here...)

Horuk looks worried. Heh. (I suspect that the work of raising her was his wife -- and her mother and sisters and aunts and assorted female friends. Heh.)

EditGirl!
133: Either Zhao needs a question mark and word-tweak ("How are we doing and what was that that crash earlier?") or to change around his text ("How we are doing and what that crash earlier was.")


And poor Zhao. Poor, poor Zhao, having to leave behind the loot.

He definitely left the female, baby stuff to other females. He's bringing back the food, he's done his part!
Thanks for the edit tweak- will be applied! I think I'll go with version 2. Sounds better to my ears.
No loot for Zhao, no money to buy off people. He's in trouble and he knows it.

Johane! You KNOW I do!! :)

I've already booked you, so just tell me when and where! I even have something for you :)

Cool! Just tell me how many copies you need. I need to organise a thing or two downtown that day, so I'll contact you a bit later once I have everything worked out. But I'll try and meet you on your lunch time.

Awwww wait so does Nauja have siblings? Since firstborn implies that theres a secondborn, etc

In any case, I agree with everyone else about your sketches, I like how they expand on the story you've made :3
rufftoon
May. 26th, 2008 04:50 pm (UTC)
She does have siblings: a brother (died in the North Pole attack), and another, younger sister who's also married now. I don't really have much of a back story for them.

Heh, those sketches don't always expand on anything, except sometimes sillyness.

"snicker: Maybe Horuk was a little skittish around infants because babies tend to throw things. I just say tht because I knew someone like that, once.

In p.133, "manoeuvre" should be spelled "maneuver" and in p.134, "logistic" should have an "s" at the end.

(Before I look at the pages, I wanted to wish you a happy birthday.)

Baby Nauja's face looks like a Chinese meat bun (siopao) with eyes. XD XD XD

And in caaaaaase, it really is your birthday today, I went ahead and made a little something.

Psst, when can I buy Horus comics from you? Will you be making some for Comic Con this year?

Ha ha, she certainly was all chubby when young. "Little Bun" would have been a perfect nickname for her XD.
Many many thanks for the gift- so very sweet of you!
As for Horus, all I have for now is the first book which I'll have in San Diego. I'll start work on the second book (after working out a few kinks) after I'm done with Water Tribe.
