Can't post what I'm working on. Damn! But...they're so much fun to draaaaaaaawwwww!!
That doesn't mean I don't need to take breaks now and then, to try and think how to make the sequences work.



One Zhao crept in this week. Yes, he's retired but he's got hobbies:



He'll start an Agni Kai for whatever reasons. Here, he may have judged that this young soldier's sideburns were too wimpy.
I blame Alexds for posting about sideburns.

I've also been toying with the idea of doing a short HTTYD comic- one that takes place during the time that Stoick's fleet sail to Dragon island and sets up for the assault.
Quite some time passes for all that to happen, enough for the kids to do some actual dragon training in the meantime, but still very very little time.
They'll have to rush and use every trick.
Here's a WIP of page one. I doubt I'll bring it any further, except eventually add dialogues.



(the dialogue in the last panel two panel is Hiccup telling the others that in order for these dragons to just do the basics, to carry them around, they will have to be patient and gentle with them...the other kids don't react too well at the "gentle" part).

I won't go into too much detail, just in case I managed to actually do more pages on this. May or may not, depends on work as usual.

Right, break is over. Time to return to work.

P.S.- Got the Zuko prequel preview. Nina's work is so nice! I never doubted the book was in good hands, my only problem with it now is having to WAIT for the book to be out.

I was really worried when I didn't see the prequel preview at the comic shop today! But then when I got home and went through all the issues I got I realized that I had gotten it completely by accident! I didn't read the Del Ray issue too carefully, too distracted by the zombie.

Yay for Free Comic Day! :D I got a preview of Tiny Titans too, which is more or less one of my favorite things these days.

I almost complately missed the Del Rey preview comics: it was tucked away, kind of hard to find. It was the superhero material that had the best spots.

I also got the Owly preview (along with Corgi), plus the Penguins of Madagascar one. Can't help it, profesional interest (the second Penguins' story style was quite fun actually! Liked the art a lot for that one).

No sideburns in the firenation. ONLY PONYTAILS OR DREADS!

Oh, that comic looks great! I look forward to seeing more character sketches. Especially since you draw them so well.

They do have sideburns in the fire nation. It's just that they are all too wimpy compared to Zhao's (especially the movie ones).

Heh, there's a lot of HTTYD fanart out there that draw the characters better than I could.

I am FULLY IN SUPPORT of a HTTYD comic, as I've now seen it twice and it was FANTASTIC. (we waited to see your name in the credits the first time, of course, so that we could squee to each other like idiots <3 )

Also: MAN I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOUR COMICS LUCK! When I got to the store today they were completely out of the Del Rey Showcase copies, so I'll have to wait until my friend who works at another store can get me a copy he kindly set aside. I'm glad that it looks okay, though! I HAVE BEEN A LITTLE ANXIOUS ABOUT IT TODAY. *___*

Aww, thank you for your support of the movie!

I think I got lucky with the Del Rey previews because they were not as visibly displayed as all the other books. I looked at their counter where all the freebies were, not seeing one copy. I was then pointed to a small display holding copies. Booh for bad display, but yay for still having copies in store.
I tell ya, this is one book that you'll be proud to have your name attached to it.

" I don't like your face soldier...AGNI KAI....And you yeah you with the cross eyes...You wanna piece of this? Huh? Agni KAI, bitch! "

I find the idea of Zhao picking agni kai fights somewhat adorable snicker

Also FFFFT I still have to see HTTYD that comic looks darling!

Hey, that soldier with the cross eyes was not looking at him straight! He hates shifty looks.

Man it is so cool to see the HTTYD characters hand-drawn. Johane, you are a master!!!

Aww, you're too kind.
We all had different ways of drawing the characters. I still find Hiccup the hardest. He's almost bland looking compared to the other boys.

Wonderful HTTYD comic! We'd be very luck to see more of it!

And Zhao just put it upon himself to show anybody with weaker sideburns who's boss. XD

I don't know how much more of the HTTYD comic I can make, but perhaps I should aim for a few pages for SDCC.

I love the twins' expressions in the comic and I would love to see a HTTYD comic! =]

Zhao has sideburns that would put Wolverine to shame v.v;

Zhao VS Wolverine?
Hmmm...Different types of fighting techniques.
That, or they would end up trading sideburns care tips.

Drat! Forgot all about free comic book day, and they had digitals at one site! Ah, well.

I got the Del-Ray sampler among other things. I also have the Zuko Comic scans if anyone wants them :3

Oh gosh, an HTTYD comic. My squee for this movie is endless.

I love that Zhao's "hobbies" apparently consist of being a jerk and challenging hapless passersby to Agni Kai. Oh Zhao. You're such a card.

Zhao has a lot of frustration and anger to vent. He might mellow out with age.
Or not.

I'm so bummed! They didn't have the Zuko prequel comic at the comic store I went to for FCBD. ;_; Maybe they ran out...
And zomg! A HTTYD comic from you would be awwweessommmee. <3 It sounds like a very cute story if you decide to do more pages.
rufftoon

Either they ran out, or copies of it were not too well displayed (like where I went).
I don't know if I have much more time to do this HTTYD comic.
Then again, if I can do it, I could bring a mini comic to SDCC. A small little thing. That could be nice just to have one new little thing.

As long as I keep doing Zhao doodles, I will be posting them.
Patience for that HTTYD comic, it's already on hold at the moment due to day work.

I'm sure he has plenty of other hobbies beside Agni Kai, but you can bet fighting is high on that list of things to do.
He's got to keep burning off those calories from the cake eating.
