Jumping into cold (water tribe) water.



Apologies for the lack of updates. Nothing much happening once again, who wants to know about my overtime. Yeah. Nothing too exciting. I better not make too many all nighters, my body can't take it too well anymore. You young people out there cherish that ability!!

I've also been posting like crazy on DA the final pages for part 4, tweaking and fixing as I go along. Not absolutely everything that got suggested, but a lot of it. Many thanks to everyone that commented, it helped me looking at some pages differently.

Reasons why I want to be done with the corrections so soon is...well, I think I am going to collect all the pages and have them printed.
Two books, manga size, 240 pages each.
None of the two actually have 240 pages, but I wanted to have some space left for a few notes.

Should I do a sort of quick resume of the important points of season one of Avatar? Perhaps also a short explanation of the end of the war? Just to help set up any reader who may not know too much or need a refresher course for the casual viewer of the serie.

Should I hint as to what could happen afterwards with the story, or let it end the way it does right now?

Once again, I would also ask for your help for guest art, if anyone is interested. All I can offer is a copy of the books for payment. There won't be a lot of copies available. I'd also need the art fairly quickly, by April 18th at the latest.
(B&W only, final size will be 5"X7,5")

I'm thinking of making people donate blood or bone marrow to get a copy, ha ha! How's that for donation.
Ok, it's all silly. But there is a possibility I would put these up when there are fundraisers for a good cause or something.

Trying to go to sleep early tonight. I need to seriously think this over.
It's all insane I tell ya.
La nuit porte conseil.

The best for now is to wait until it is done and ready. Then things can be figured out.
And it doesn't matter where a person lives in the world. If you can receive mail, then you're set.

I would insanely love to do guest art! But would you have me? I am an internet unknown.

Known or unknown makes no difference to me. Guest art is guest art.

I want to do art for that too!! But my artistic skills pretty much suck :S
Also, I would love to have your WT comics, I love them!! Will you include all the drawings with inside jokes?? =D

I'm so excited about this!!

I don't know if I could include all the side jokes.
All see how many free pages I have left.

I think having the basic points of season 1/war explaination would be great as a refresher for those who haven't seen season 1 for a while and to introduce the property to entirely new people. It's a great idea and if you'd like I'd gladly help you out with charting it out or even try and cook up some infographic for it!
And/or I'll gladly contribute for a guest art if you'd have me.

Oooh, that sounds very good. I think I'll take you on your generous offer.
Infographic of the Avatar timeline- sounds fun!

I would love to trade a fanart for copy of the book! If course I would pay for the over sea shiping cost though ^.^

And I also do donate blood ;-)

Just give me the ok and I'm on it!

I don't think you should say antyhing about what happens afterwords.
Maybe some text before, but absoultly no more then half a page then I think.

Your sketches and working progress is much more interesting ;-)

Good suggestions about maybe putting some sketches.
If you do art for it (which you are very welcome to), don't worry about the shipping cost, mysterious anonymous person. ;)

A quick summary of the Season One points, yes. Short "And he would've been firelord, too, if not for those meddling kids and their pet lemur and flying sky-bison" ending of the canon. Point people at the episodes on iTunes or something?

Waaaaaant a copy. (Am a registered bone marrow volunteer, but no one's asked me for any yet.)
rufftoon
Mar. 24th, 2009 04:52 pm (UTC)
Ha ha, I should do a Scooby-Dooesque drawing of that XD
I would definitely point people to get the episode on ITunes or get the DVDs.

I will send art!!! Any specifications besides prominant featuring of Zhao?

B&W, keep final size in mind (mentionned above...d a bit bigger, it always looks better when shrunk) and go nuts.

Yay for blood donation!
And you get a copy for sure, as a way to thank you for that very nice fic you wrote last year.

Could I donate art---and would it be possible in BW instead of colour?
rufftoon
Mar. 24th, 2009 04:54 pm (UTC)
B&W would be very much preferred. In fact, it is a must. The inside of it will be all B&W (no money to print colour).

Definitely interested!! I'll try and send some art your way if I can find the time.

And blood donation sounds like an excellent idea :D
rufftoon
Mar. 24th, 2009 04:57 pm (UTC)
We should be doing a trade at some point.
Could be fun to draw TJ and Amal (also if I can find the time, ha ha!)
Sketchy looking art very welcome, since the whole freakin' story are sketches.

Print copies would be wonderful!
I can have art ready by then! There are certain character who could use more fanart lurve.

Yeah..."minis". Many hundred pages minis. Ouch!

Yayy awesome XD I was sad when you said that first chapter was to be the only printed edition, they are too professional not to see paper at some point.

It also sounds like a lot of $/effort... If you are good at record keeping, I bet you could take LJ preorders to cover some of the initial printing costs?

In any case, I've got to whip out some Zhao art now XD I haven't rewatched those eps in a while, it will be fun to visit him again.
rufftoon

That's because I grow more and more insane with old age :3
What crazy scheme will I make in five years from now *shudders*

My record keeping abilities are minimal. There's always ALWAYS one thing that slips through the crack. I'm certain I forgot something from last time.
And I can't make people pay for the printing cost. Only shipping.

I'd so love a copy, but my budget is so limited, right now... Aargh. But that sounds awesome!
