Quick sketches, part deux



As I'm racking my brains to try and make a scene work (lots of doodling, most of it being dumped), I took a small break and doodled other things.

From last post, grahf316 wrote:
Know, oh prince, that between the years when the desert drank the library and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Azulon, there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars - Water Tribe, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, Air Nomads; the sun warriors, with their dark-haired women and temples of dragon-haunted mystery, Chin with its chivalry, Oma that bordered on the pastoral lands of Shu, the air temples with their secret-guarded crypts, Kyoshi whose riders wore steel and silk and gold. But the proudest kingdom of the world was Ba Sing Se, reigning supreme in the dreaming East.

Hither came Zhao the Water Tribe, black-haired, sullen-eyed, fire in hand, a thief, a soldier, moonslayer, with gigantic temper and gigantic muttonchops, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandalled feet, destined to wear the golden crown of Ba Sing Se upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

Zhao the Barbarian part deux

Then a fun little exercise. A colleague said to test how well you know your characters, send them over to a certain famous fast food chain and check what they order.

McD test
Zhao and Azula ain't mine, but I just had to add them in.
(I should do that with my other characters one day)

Well, the boobies are covered by some silly metal cup things. That's bad in cold climate. Ouch.

As for the text, it is an adaptation from Conan, arranged to fit Avatarverse (Or WaterTribeverse).

hahaha, history chronicles DEFINITELY need more sexy times!
i know i'd be more interested in them if they did...

and that's a pretty cool exercise for characters!
*approves of lao's choice hahah*
rufftoon

You know the sexy times are there, they're just never talked about much.
Rarely.
Hardly ever.

Zhao > Conan.

Something about that skimpy bronze bikini the Nauja is wearing makes me think that Horuk would be a big Boris Vallejo fan. XD

Ah, European fast food! I must confess a soft spot for the crepe-waffle carts in Norway. As far as traditional fast food goes... I agree with Azula; cheeseburgers are the best.
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 01:11 am (UTC)
The only "fast food" I've had in Europe was gelato in Italy. I guess that counts.

Probably should send my characters to McD, too. lol Wait, they offer beer in Europe? Did I miss something? D:

They used to offer beer in french mcdonalds...I don't know if it's still on the menu though.

Gosh, Nauja, you're so BORING.
Just kidding, promise. I love Nauja~ I wanna be like her when I grow up♥

Poor Horuk... He must hate the attention his daughter gets.
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 03:17 am (UTC)
You know, Nauja had a pretty boring, mundane life until Zhao came around.
You bet Horuk misses those days. Right now, it's a father's nightmare!

Now just because of that... I'm going to McDonalds on Friday in Nauja Cosplay and asking someone to take my photo.

But I prolly won't order salad. ;p
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 03:18 am (UTC)
Nauja's just had a salad. She's ok with trying the other things on the menu now.

OMG. *dies laughing*

I'm surprised Princess Leia let Nauja borrow her sexy slave costume. *snickers*

Wow, Azula and I have the same order. *scratches head*
rufftoon

I,m surprised Princess Leia's outfit fits on Nauja XD They are different sizes.
I guess cheeseburger is a favorite.

You just totally and completely made my day.

Yeah, I bet Zhao is pretty damn sick of all those fish jokes.
Lao looks so adorable with his little Cars toy. I wonder how many kids he made cry to get the complete Kung Fu Panda collection.
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 03:19 am (UTC)
A lot of kids cried.
A lot.

LOL... poor Nauja. XD I do so love these fantasies that Arluk dreams up for Zhao though. :P

I can't decide who I would want Zhao to be with... Zhaoka/Nauja would be awesome and I'd like to think (after a little more adjustment towards good on his part) that those two would be great together. But Adult!Azula and Zhao is just so hot too... but it would be short-lived because they're too ambitious and would try to kill each other before long. TT_TT Long-lived and hotness, or short-lived and firey hotness??? I CAN'T DECIDE!
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 03:21 am (UTC)
Zhao's not too hot about Arluk's dreams.
And Zhao's a handful for any women...he'd get his @SS kicked by these two, at least (with Azula doing a lot more damage) XD

Nauja likes her curves a bit more covered up. Men and their stupid outfit ideas.
With Azula along, you could get any meals you want for free.

Huh *cranes head to the side* I better check on that one, because I haven't seen the chain in Denmark serve beer.. we only got sodas.. and yay! Happy Meals! (I got a Lightsword the last time I got one of those =3)

I think it may be only in France. And maybe they don't serve them anymore. But, there was a time...
I can't remember when was the last time I went for the toys.

I have been loving your Water Tribe comics ever since I found them on DA. So I decided to get off my lazy rear and comment at last (call me a very long time lurker/stalker/random fan ^-^;).

I just love how Arluk is enjoying those nuggets and fries (my fav too by the way). It almost Homer-esk the way he is talking about them.

But another though stuck in my head. What if Zhao was the one behind the counter, you know? Like the one taking the orders. Gah..or the one flipping (or firebending) the burgers. Worse yet...Nauja was the manager as well?! XD

That would be a McD's to watch out for! ^-6;
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 06:46 am (UTC)
Thank you very much for taking the time to comment, it is appreciated. One day, all these pages will be on DA. :)
Ha ha, Arluk may have a bit of Homer on him when it comes to not so healthy food.
As for Zhao serving fries...

I always love your stuff. But I have a challenge for you that I want you to write down and store some place for a rainy day...

Azula vs. Chuck Norris

And go by "Chuck Norris Facts" because now a days the man needs an oxygen tank just to take a ride on his electic scooter.

Can't resist laughing, Lao is soooooooo (I can't describe it, somewhere near cute and disturbing). XD

High five on the Prince Zhao. :D
I'm grinning with utmost satisfaction. :D

Cute and disturbing sums up Lao well.

Azula: I demand a McRib.

Hapless counter person: I'm sorry miss, we no longer serve those...

Azula: WHAT! Such insolence must be punished! *burns the place down*
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 03:18 pm (UTC)
They had McRib? Shows how often I went. I do miss their Pizza. It was the only thing that would make me go to one.

I burst out laughing when I saw these!

I don't eat at McD's very often, but when I do I order what Arluk does. oh no! What does that say about me? But I call them "McChicken Nuggets". :)
rufftoon
Oct. 30th, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure what they're called nowadays, since I really don't go there anymore.
Chicken McNuggets? McChicken? White meat in McFried stuff?

Azula and Lao, ftw! I go for the happy meals because of the toys (yes, a 50 year old woman who plays with toys, lol) and Azual with the taking the whole thing over, and getting a cheeseburger on the sdie, that's just so much win, there.

Also, the start, with Zhao and the chronicler (snicker) and you know who... :rofl:

Oct. 30th, 2008 03:20 pm (UTC)
The toys will always have a certain attraction on part of the population, young and old.
