Jugglin' away

As always, thinking of doing too many things at once. I'm even waking up earlier than I've ever done in years, with ideas and projects rolling inside my head. Kinda annoying, for me who likes to sleep so much. Oh no, maybe it's another sign I'm getting old! I'm sleeping less and less! And it's true, my birthday is coming up in less than a month now. Hmmm... since I'm away from home, what shall I do to celebrate? More drawing? Heck, possible overtime that weekend anyway. Heh, at least on this project, it is almost possible to plan which weekends are unavailable or not.

What's going on inside my brain? Why, more Avatar stuff, of course! I tell ya, Avatar rot on the brain:
Want to do an evolution of Iroh, based on the visual clues given in the show. No teenager image possible, though Isaia at Deviant Art has done a version I absolutely adore:

Much love, as always, to her beautiful art. Perhaps I could ask her if I could adopt her young Iroh...with full credits to her, of course!

Would love to do the same with Zhao, though the image of him as a young soldier is not very very clear during the one flashback.

Want to do an Iroh story, even if just in rough form. 
Need to work on the more official stuff too, and that is definitely my prirority.
Also continuing with the Alternate History on my spare time. New pages uploaded this weekend on DA, the latest one being here:

Just keep clicking next page uptil 41, the last one posted so far. Getting nearer and nearer the end, yay! I will do this :D

Here's hoping I'll manage to sleep ok tonight, and not wake up at 4 am, unable to fall back asleep again.

Your development of Iroh is inching him closer to the pedestal on which I've placed Zhao.

As wonderful as Zhao is, he unfortunately is sort of one-dimensional. I can't really visualize him having a hobby :( (other than trying to get his hands on some crazy weapon/ tactical advantage or something)

Anyways, good luck on whatever projects you're throwing yourself on now! I'm pretty sure that sort of creative restlessness is the opposite of getting older :)

Aw c'mon... I'm sure Zhao knits or something. All one-dimensional evil guys knit or crochet. It's like a requirement.

Freakin love the alternate timeline, btw. It's great when you read the dialogue and actually hear the characters say it. Good good stuff. :)

Thank you very much, glad you are enjoying these pages. They are loads of fun to do (and yeah, Zhao does have little practical hobbies I'm sure. I keep thinking sowing...)

But...finding new tactical advantages IS a great hobby!
Though for some reasons (and based on the comment below), I can't help but see Zhao doing a bit of sowing...you know, from back in the days when he was a younger soldier without too much rank, and he had to learn to fix his equipment himself? Bet he still does a bit of that, as a way to relax.
Also in this future, Zhao does have a daughter of which he is overprotective. He still hasn't found her a perfect match to have her married. Nothing's too good for daddy's girl. No, really! All those guys out there are losers!

(I swear, I don't control these characters or their lives- they just throw facts at me)

Great. Now that I mentionned Zhao having a daughter, he is twisting my arm to talk about her! D'oh! More drawings coming up soon I guess.

Beginning of June.
Guh, nothing to celebrate about...only perhaps saying "yay! I've survived another year and getting closer to my grave!"
Just joking...ever so slightly. Time does fly!
