How about a combo?

I haven't done anything out of the ordinary this week- just draw, eat, sleep, draw some more, watched a bit of the olympics.
Nothing exciting, but I keep busy y'know (it's that or go insane, ha ha ha!).

Little things before I move on to some Water Tribe schtuff:

mercurysblood Pointed out this blog for me, where the artist did a small animation of my egyptian cat story. Cool!
http://stickmanarts.blogspot.com/2008/07/day01.html

A big nod in PonDeReplay's direction and her site, Breakthrough Designs, for doing some lovely Water Tribe Wallpapers (and of other Avatar characters too).
http://breakthrough-designs.com/

I must be forgetting to thank a few other people. That will happen when my brain starts shutting down close to midnight. Apologies for that! Hopefully I've thanked you during the past week in messages.

And now...







Also, a little bit of part 4:








Ha ha, I realised afterwards that these two updates fit in a way: in both, Arluk calls Zhao insane.
So Zhao wants to test Azula's offer by making demands (which we haven't heard yet), and Azula wants to test Zhao in return. I guess that's one way to negotiate a new partnership deal.

Even in the long coat, he runs pretty fast.

Even in the worse situation, Arluk's brain goes in one direction.

noooooooooooooooooo arluk run!!!!

argh while I am overwhelmed by the possibility of Arluk getting fried, I am equally enamored with that animated kitty XD Merc always finds the coolest things!

Arluk can run faster than Zhao...unless Zhao pulls out a sliding trick like in the first few pages of chapter 4.
That's really a great find that Merc did.

Oh man!! Now I want to animate your kitty.

But you already did a great kitty animation. :)

Pfffffft lol way to be a little bitch, Zhao.

!! That kitty animation is awesome :DD

Big bitch, little bitch and everything in between.
As for the animation, it gets extra awesome points that someone took the time to animate it!

Arluk better run the dickens cause if he gets caught...I dunno what I'd think! XD

Oh he'll run. Super fast run. Those skinny legs of his are gonna be pumping.

OH NOES, ARLUK!! RUUUN!! D:
Argh, you and your cliffhangers! >:| *shakesfist*


Oh, and that kitty animation is super cute! 8D

I warned someone before. From now on, it's pretty much going to be cliffhangers until the very end.

You can have Zhao as much as you want Rufftoon.
Arluk is the one for me! MUAHAHAHA
rufftoon
Aug. 25th, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
Arluk knew he'd get someone if he got to hang around Zhao a bit longer. XD

Poor Quin-Lee and Birthday Boy, they're never going to live this down. Smooth moves by Arluk, btw ;D

Ha ha, nope! These two will be reminded of that for the rest of their lives.

Horray for combos!
I knew there was going to be armor in that box.
Arluk's face in the 4th page is a killer, always interesting to see a character use an expression different than what you usally see.
And very clever way to get past guards, haha.

Creepy Azula handling his beard. *shudder*
rufftoon
Aug. 25th, 2008 03:21 pm (UTC)
I can't remember if you mentionned the armor in the pevious post. In any case, internet cookies for you for guessing right.
Special circumstances make Arluk lose his usual train of thoughts: out of the gutter and kicking in survival mode.

Oh, and that's some lovely wallpaper there.
Even though there's going to be more dead puppies and ducks out in the world. ;~;

I see him smiiiiiiile in 179. Really far away, so no one will see him. (Loving Arluk's threat!) [The "come up really quickly" sentence is cumbersome, but I'm not sure I see an elegant way to restructure it. At least not this early in the morning. The sentiment comes through just fine, anyway.]


Oooo, Arluk, ninja tall-tale-teller! And... no prisoners also includes... allies, you know. Azula, you really should know by now that making people betray their friends sometimes backfires.

*squee*

Oh, and the animation is lovely, and oh, keen, desktops!

By the time this gets posted on DA, maybe that phrase will get repolished a bit.
If I'm not too lazy.
Hey, Arluk's been in the war and got training. He can fight and knows he can't rely on sheer strength alone.

I was hesitating for a longer version of that. But it seemed to slow down the moment too much. I was trying it out loud, barking lines out like orders.
I'll retry it. Maybe I'll change the line by the time these hit DA.

Omigosh omigosh omigosh, noo, Arluk! That move on the last page was real smooth and clever though! :D

It's kinda stressful now, reading both chapters simultaneously with everything hitting the fan in chapter 4.

Aug. 25th, 2008 03:27 pm (UTC)
Arluk's got some moves.
I mean...moves against enemy soldiers. He has some fight training and experience.

Everything, ftw! :thumbsup:: Now, let's see, what will Zhao do?

Hm, do you think a puppy would calm Azula down? Nah, she'd probably fry it. Mm...
rufftoon
Aug. 25th, 2008 03:15 pm (UTC)
Calm her down? No. Distract her, maybe.

He doesn't show it very often, but he's been in the war too. He knows how to fight.

aww, Arluk. Love the "lady friend" line, and the parallels between the two updates :)

Poor Arluk, trying to keep the situation cool and failing.

De-lurking briefly to tell you I love both your comics, and adding a single nitpick- I think the 'No prisoner!' line needs an 's' at the end.
rufftoon
Aug. 25th, 2008 07:55 pm (UTC)
Too true- I will add it before posting it on DA. Thanks for delurking and the correction!

I can help but wonder if Zhao is doing one giant Xanatos Gambit/Roulette here. Look forward to seeing what happens next. (Kind of curious what is going on in the rest of the world, like what Aang and the others are doing.)
rufftoon
Aug. 25th, 2008 08:02 pm (UTC)
I had to do a bit of seach to know exactly what a Xanatos Gambit/roulette entailed. Just learned something new (or at least, now I know the ref for that plot device).
Aang and the rest of the gang are helping in the reconstruction and trying to keep an eye out for Azula.
Erm...well, she's over here so they are completely missing her.

I shall continue being evil almost to the very end there- cliffhangers all the way!
Heck, bad guys armies shouldn't wear uniforms that could be used against them! Helmets are very often a big no-no.
(plus, they offer good disguises to the good guys usually)

;n; Page 179 in part 3 always gives me little tears.

Zhao's reaction to the box: "CLOTHES?! I WANTED TOYS! THIS BIRTHDAY SUCKS!"

Oh Arluk...worst timing ever, but you have the get away skills of a true peeping tom... >u>;;
rufftoon
Aug. 25th, 2008 08:37 pm (UTC)
Zhao..this isn't your birthday so stop pouting!
Get away skills- very very important to have when you consider Arluk's interests. XD

Good - great - What can I say? Not much to say...

p. 248 - pn.3 - flip 180%
p. 250 - pn. 2 - flip 180%
p. 252 - pn. 1 - flip 180%

Are you left-handed? Maybe that would explain my tendency to suggest flipping the composition around...

Cheers,
