300

I've officially passed the count of 300 pages for this comic.
...
I officially have no life.

Woke up late today, so didn't really feel sleepy. Just been drawing to the music of Talking Heads, Bryan Ferry and that free music CD from Q magazine, a sort of Dance compilation thing.
And just as I'm posting a batch of pages, Talking Heads is reminding me that I am on a "Road To Nowhere"...



As a reminder, last page from previous update:



Continuing....now!









Why is it that when these two meet, there's a 90% chance one will hit the other...or hit something? Things have to change...or go down to 75% at least. It's getting repetitive (but fun to draw anyway, ha ha!)

Going to bed now!

The confrontations? Yeah, gets his blood pumping.
As for his intentions, they should be clearer next update.

So perfect..."stop picking up weapons!" You managed to make it funny and intense at the same time.

Obsessed indeed. As long as the machine keeps drawing and not breaking down.
Toph hitting someone is her way to show affection. Zhao, not so much. More like he wants to conquer you.

These are so exciting! I'm really reading breathlessly and wanting to know how things work out. The Nauja vs Zhao fight is perhaps one of my favourite action scenes of yours, absolutely amazing, and funny too, what chemistry these two have :D
The timing between action and speech is just too perfect, especially when she picks up the second spear, love how you show the rack of spears just before she does exactly the opposite of what he orders.

What happened to Arnuk? aargh can't wait for more. It's a real page turner!

And congratulations on the 300 pages!! The drawings are saying that you're still enjoying these, very inspiring and amazing to see such consistent quality over such a big project. Can't wait to have all 4 volumes on my shelve!

As if she's ever going to listen to him when he's acting like that? She'll fight back to escape!
I am still having lots of fun drawing it, and I'm really itching to finish it simply because of the fun factor.

"Stop picking up weapons!" ROFL!! Heee... those two. They really do always end up hitting each other, don't they?

Congrats on 300! That's awesome. You're totally my hero. ^__^

There's something about Zhao's attitude that makes usually peaceful Nauja want to hit him.
They might just both be enjoying it or something.

Oh gods oh gods oh gods that's so COOL! I mean, fight! With equal fight and not quite in the "ack, picking on a girl!" vein (which is unusual, I'd say)! And "STOP PICKING UP WEAPONS!"

Must admit, Nauja was about equal on the "react first, ask questions later" scale!

Eeeeheeheehee!

I think Zhao is confused about Zhao's intentions!

She doesn't like being thrown around- and the only way to get a word in edgewise to that man seems to be force.
Or maybe a stalemate.
Zhao knows what he wants- more on that in other updates.

And here you told us that you were going to have to slow down? :D

Ahaha! This is an awesome action scene-- I love it when Zhao and Nauja interact. XD

WOWW, congratulations on hitting 300! How long have you been doing this now?
rufftoon
Sep. 15th, 2008 03:28 pm (UTC)
I will slow down. Just...not this weekend, apparently.
The original draft was a lot shorter for their interaction, but there was a spark of inspiration that crept in and made it more fun to draw that way.
I can't remember when I started. I could always check way back, when I started posting these. More than a year, I guess.

First, grats on 300!

Second, Zhao's up to something where Azula is concerned, isn't he? And with the fighting, he still likesNauja enough to care whether she lives or dies, thinking on finding a way she can get out alive.

You bet Zhao is up to something! :D

"Stop picking up weapons!" Best line so far XD Well I'm glad that Zhao hasn't lost all of his redemption (yet) though I am a bit curious as well where Azula is hanging out right now. Be careful Zhao ;___; If Nauja gets hurt I'm going to cry or something.
rufftoon

Zhao still has some shreds of redemption he could hold on to. As for Azula, she's actually on the first page of the next update. I almost ended with her in this one, as a cliffhanger. For once, I didn't do that.

"STOP PICKING UP WEAPONS!"

lol Zhao...

One of these days he's going to have to give one HUGE apology to Nauja for all the crap he puts her through.
rufftoon
Sep. 15th, 2008 04:51 pm (UTC)
Him, apologise?
Maybe if torture is involved, but he's got too much pride to apologise to a woman! (Silly male ego)

It is a very exciting update !
Zhao really cares about Nauja . What a nice man!.Azula someday will thank Zhao for saving her from herself : )

I'm not sure the tag "nice" applies to Zhao. As for caring for anyone, Zhao would deny everything.

I hate to sound like a charter member of the "broken record brigade" but:

Congratulations on the 300! It is a sign of dedication! To the cause of awesome!

And "STOP PICKING UP WEAPONS!" is officially one of the greatest lines ever. Seriously. I want a bumper sticker of it.
rufftoon
Sep. 15th, 2008 08:03 pm (UTC)
Fine line between dedication and madness!
I just imagined someone from the NRA driving behind your car with that bumper sticker.
