Smells like something's burning

Walked outside today, and I could really smell the big Sylmar fire. Couldn't see it, but those low lying clouds were not just the usual LA...erm...air quality type.
Made for an awesome sunset though. The only good thing about this whole disaster.

Took a small break from work (or go nuts). I'm also currently inking pages. Feels good to be inking again!
I should ink a few Water Tribe pages at some point. I can't decide which ones though. NOT crowd ones, that's for sure!

A very small update, just the beginning of the fight.
Possibly inspired by smell of burning.






When I went to APE a few weekends ago, alexds3 generously gave me this sketch.
Magazines
I'm still laughing every time I look at it XD
Who knew Zhao was so willing to pose for Hotman and Sweat Tent Magazine.
Yes Arluk, tell us where you're getting these.

did I just see Zhao do a waterbending move there?

Hotman and Sweat Tent Magazine, if those really existed I'd buy me a copy. :D

I like the smell of the smoke, if it's really diffused. But I spent the day in the Valley today, and by the end of it, it was almost intolerable, even considering that I was chilling in Burbank all day.

oooooh! Is Zhao catching/redirecting Azula's fire? (btw, is Azula's fire still blue in your story?) Re: alexds3 pic - I see The Mechanist has invented cameras and printing presses lol

I wish I could waterbend some of our rain (from New England) out west. I cringe every time I read about the fires out there.

Keep safe. Keep sane. Taking breaks is good!

Yup! If his own fire blasts are weak, why not borrow from the enemy. Azula's fire would indeed still be blue.
We should all be thankful for the mechanist's inventions.

Woah he's waterbending fire. XD

I'd subscribe to those magazines. XDD

Just a bit of fire-redirecting. Some firebenders already do it, but Zhao's really good at it.

It's nice to see Zhao using his own Waterbender-influenced style to such great effect!

FWOOOOOOOSH

It can only take him so far in a fight, but he'll use all he has. He's going to need a lot of fwoooooosh to beat her.

That's pretty fancy there Zhao, redirecting that fire like water bending. But will it blend erm... burn.

It's events these that make me glad I live in Wisconsin.

If his own fire blasts are weak, he'll use his opponent's.

Wisconsin gets fires too...just maybe not as often and year long!

Azula's in for a surprise!
... And I don't think it's Zhao pulling out the copy of Sweat Tent where he is the centrefold and flashing it at her. XD
rufftoon

Ha ha, that would certainly distract her for a few precious seconds XD

Really, really great. And so cool that one can _tell_ that Zhao's doing a waterbending move ... on fire. And that he is.

I'm glad that it is reading correctly. yay!

Hope your dad keeps safe. These fires are nasty and dangerous.
And cartoon fire fighting, especially when mixed with martial arts, are always fun.

Nice incorporation of the watebending, I'm loving where this is going! :)

There's a few more pages of fighting left, so I'll keep having fun with these two :D

You had better be capturing my good side in these pictures, Lady Matte.

You're looking good under all angles, sir.
(you're just not perfect in every imaginable way, but we like you this way)
