Since I'll be home all weekend...

Don't really feel like going out, not with my little mishap that happened this afternoon (see previous post), I may as well be productive or something.

Took me a while to do these: last weekend I worked, and I actually re-retweaked some of these pages more than once. Sometimes, just one panel that was frustrating me.








I remembered past comments, and decided to follow the suggestions and added one page before Zhao lets out his frustration. It probably works better.

Avatar starts again this Monday on Nick! Season Finale in ONE WEEK!
And I'll finally get to post new Water Tribe pages. Though I may have to put spoilers warnings, for those few people who won't be able to see the finale. I need to work on them, make them pretty :)

Excuse me, I need to go put some ice on my upper lip. Trying (and succeeding) in keeping the swelling down.

ya know, I had a thought while watching through the first season to prepare for the finale... What would JeongJeong think of his student now?

JJ might not be too impressed. Surprised, perhaps a bit amused, but he'd recognise too much of his former student's attitude. Of course right now, Zhao can't firebend, which might make JJ slightly jealous (firebending is a buuuuuuurden! ;)

Yikes! Sorry to hear about your accident. I had a similar fall and chipped my two front teeth in grade school. The weird thing is I didn't get a root canal until years later when I reached high school. It was the craziest thing and the swelling came out of nowhere. Do have it checked out soon.

Take care of yourself, now!

And on comics, wonderful expressions as usual! I have one small comment on a typo on 168 since it's spelled "negotiator" with a T. But I do love Zhao's frustrated WHUNK.

Sounds like everyone who chipped their tooth did it in their childhood. Not me! I'm doing everything when I'm older, ha ha!
Oops, typo caused by french language slip (négociateur). Thanks for pointing it out, I'll correct it for the DA post.

Thank you- glad the scene still works, even with the added page.
And the Avatar fun really starts on Thursday with The Southern Raiders. Yay!

I love this! :thumbsup: Especially te line about Zhaoka pretending to be sick, so that he would not have to come out in the cold. You have a good balance between the whimsical and the dramatic, IMO.

That's Arluk's interpretation of why Zhao wouldn't come out. Zhao has other reason, one being his bruised ego and honour.

It still counts as whimsy, IMO. ^_^

I like the extra page added in. It makes it flow better. :D

I can't believe Avatar is nearly over...*gasp* I hope your lip gets better soon!

Thank you, glad to know it works better.
Looks like my lip will turn all the pretty shades of purple, green and yellow before it gets better. I may still have colors when I go to SDCC :b

I like the new page you added. Better build up to Zhao's frustration, and I especially love Horuk's "em'" in that sentence.
Though personaly, I liked the dialog from the first version better. It just seemed more zhao of Zhao to think the council wanted to talk about him.
I don't know, that's just me.

I see what you mean- of course Zhao would think everything needed o be about him. But by adding a page and tweaking the dialogue with what Horuk said, I felt a bit uncomfortable leaving it as is.

Hey Johane!
Steph and I will be at SDCC this year - think you might be able to take on a couple of Avatar-related commissions?

Certainly! I may not do full color stuff, and I tend to draw all wonky when not at a desk, but sure!

Sorry to hear about that bike fall - bike accidents are terrible - Hope the dentist visit went OK

Nice sequence - the only suggestion would be to replace panel 4, p. 167 with panel 4, p. 168 and vice versa.

Looking forward to the new episodes!

Wonderful wonderful acting. You're so awesome to be actually drawing with such a mishap. Me, I would be sulking on the couch and watching bad TV.

If I had been in big pain, then yes I would have been sulking on the couch. But since I could go around and basically act normal, the itch to draw was too strong to resist.

I usually never leave comments to you cuz I dunno how to put the "YOU'RE AWESOME" you'll get a million times over in a new, witty way, but make no mistake. You're awesome.

You're also an inspiration and talented and what I'd love to grow up to be. Thanks for sharing Water Tribe with LJ so I could see it (yeah, just me. No one else). I mean, I rarely catch Avatar, but your work is always worth looking up.

I also read what I believe was your strip in, uhm...oh damn. It was the short your avatar was from--the Egyptian cat. I'm totally blanking on the book's name. It's...well, not FLOAT, but...something like that? Anyways, as short as it was, I loved it.

So yeah. Gonna go back to trolling now. Please keep up the glorious work, no matter what it is, you witty person you. Best of luck with the teeth situation. Teeth kinda suck.
