Yay, work surprise!

Not quite a surprise, I had a hunch it was going to happen.
4:45pm- I receive revised script pages. I'm also asked to work on them this weekend.

I don't mind working the weekend when I have to. What annoys me is surprise work for the weekend, as I have to make last minute plans to accommodate extra work hours.
Just when I thought I could sleep in.

It's a race to get everything approved and done for next Thursday. Things will be crazy until then.
Best post Water Tribe doodles while I can.











I'm getting the urge to move faster with these. Of course, the moment I start an idea sometimes it develops into full pages instead of just beats. Expect more skipping between the two, with inserts like page 49 of just randomness of stuff that gets cut out or alternative possibilities.
You guys have a good weekend!

You keep telling me that Zhao isn't a softie on the inside and then you go and give me a page where he criticizes his old self as a jerk worthy of being beaten up. Come on now, we both know he's not all bad. Arluk is so desperate for some fluff. Poor guy.

He recognises whatever his old self was- a jerk worthy of a good beating.
He doesn't realise his present self would fall under the same category.
(that, and older age is softening him up).
Arluk hates all ages stories. Nothing happens, or so he says.

ohmygod that last page had my falling out of my chair! I love these quick beats interspersed with full pages, it's super fun to read :D

I hope you can find a way to enjoy your script revisions :I

That last page feels more like the weird stuff in my sketchbook, ha ha!
I am looking forward to the script revision. It's the last minute weekend workload that makes me sigh. Ah well, gotta get used to it. It will happen a lot more times.

Don't fail me now, Arluk!!!!

I love the background notes. :)

Arluk is working hard, but I fear I am the censorship barrier he cannot cross.

Every once in a while, he has to try.

Zhao ... a virgin... Oh my... it would explain EVERYTHING! XD

Essaie de te reposer un peu tout de même. Enfin je dis ça et je suis en plein examen, je me réveille la nuit pour travailler...

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Zhao keeps his intimate life out of the public eye (well, except on some other places on the web where it's In Your Face for the world to see, ha ha!)
Je vais apporter une partie du boulot à l'apartment. Plus facile de gérer son temps comme ça.

This really should be official. It's too awesome not to be.

Arluk has the best ideas EVAR.
rufftoon
Jun. 6th, 2009 05:22 pm (UTC)
If this was official, Arluk would never get to even speak his ideas aloud. Yay for internet!

That fire nation guy is so nice. Drunk ZXhao is the best "He's so much like his father I want to punch him!" Hahaha

That guy, if he was a bit like Zhao in the past, has completely mellowed out.

Ruff, were you making the border lines on pg 47 wavy to show Zhao is getting drunk? Intentional or not, it works! Does the smarmy friend have a name? Since the war is over, why would Smarmy still be in charge of the town. Wouldn't the fire nation have returned the earth kingdom towns to earth kingdom authority?
rufftoon

Everytime I make a drunk character, the panel border become more or less wavy (Part 4 showed that with Kug).
The place is now under earth kingdom authority. But that guy did such an excellent job of building up that town he still has enormous influence in the place.
The local population actually learned to appreciate him.
Doesn't mean there isn't some inner resentment boiling deep...

If Zhao has any regrets, it's a more general one that he had no blood bonds, no family and in the end no friends in the Water Tribe.
Most of it, self-inflicted.
Yeah. If he ever met himself, he'd beat himself up for all the stupid things he did.

Haha, Arluk's just become one the voices in your head. Hasn't he?

He's one of many.

Re: n_n
I have to stop myself sometimes, pause and think: does this help at all? I can't draw all the crap I want into that story. Got to edit.
Though, as you see, I can at least doodle the stuff that is out, ha ha!

You say "doodles" and... Dear stars, if this is a "doodle," I'd be terrified for the world at what you really consider finished, y'know? Because if you ever finished something, it would probably be so awesome that it'd strike people blind. O_O

(Well, okay, the last page is a doodle. Sort of. *cackle*)
rufftoon
Jun. 6th, 2009 08:39 pm (UTC)
There are problems with many of the drawings, no details for the bgs...so yeah, unfinished.
I'd doubt the finished product would blind people, as it would still be flawed, ha ha!

Master Fluffbender Arluk! He can twist any situation into 'gettin sexy.' He tries so hard too.

Haha! Fantastic.

I also love Zhao thinking his old self is a jerk. Psst, Zhao, you're still a jerk.
rufftoon

Arluk may have to lower his demands- from sexy to cuddles.
Zhao is still a jerk - one that enjoys punching other jerks.

Unexpected work- not the first or last time it happens. Eh, comes with the job.
Thank you very much for showing me the colored pages! No, I don't mind at all that you used them, it is interesting to see what someone else would have done with them. Little typo with the girl's name, but that's nothing the teacher would have noticed, ha ha! Liked the extra little touch of light around the falcons. Adds *magic*!!
Interesting how you made the water, adding highlights and shadows.
Thank you for choosing my comic for your exercise! I am honored.

I don't think Zhao ever had any problems with the virginity issue XD
rufftoon
Jun. 7th, 2009 02:38 am (UTC)
Nope! Zhao has no problems there.
Arluk is just trying to spin tall tales again.

Sweet Water Tribe stories makes my mind relax after bugs and painful technical stuff ...thanks Johane!

...hope the weekend "at work" isn't too hard on you...

Heck, I draw these pages sometimes when I'm frustrated with work.
Like today.
I'm putting up one more page today because my work-work was blah!

I must say, I really like Arluk's ideas xDDD

He likes to think his ideas are very...seductive.
