Before I go...

Couldn't help it - had good music while working this afternoon, did a quick doodle.
Needed it out of my system so I can keep focused tonight for the other work.

...but really, Zhao is a terrible dancer. He had only a few years to learn, while the others started while they were kids.
Ah well, they dragged him into this one.

(Did I ever mention how much I love your icon? Makes me grin like an idiot every time :D)

Oh! What wonderful motion! Love this.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 02:02 am (UTC)
Give me the right tune, and I love to make characters dance :)

Just . . . awww. :)

(Have I told you about my theory that Firebenders tend to take up wind instruments? All that breath control, after all . . . thus Iroh constantly urging Zuko to give songki (sp?) horn performances.)

I agree. Awwwwwwww!

afkjdsfkjsdkfjd!!! <3333

Awesome movement and awesome everything.

I am suddenly imagining that Zhao is so terrible at dancing that he did the "sprinkler" move (aka the dance move that Bryan Konietzko did for us at the Comic-con panel) then eyeballs would pop out.

BTW Inuit drums ftw!

Ah man, I can't wait for you guys to see what all those acting references were for :D
(Gah, want to say more but I caaaaan't! *sob*)

Always loved the inuit drums. I was fascinated by them when I was a kid.

Awww, Zhao is shaking his groove thang!
Aug. 3rd, 2007 02:04 am (UTC)
He's trying to, doing his best anyway...
Aug. 3rd, 2007 12:16 am (UTC)
Argh, so sweet!!
Aug. 3rd, 2007 02:10 am (UTC)
Heh, after that other image of Zhao, I needed to exorcise it with something sweeter ;)
Aug. 3rd, 2007 12:25 am (UTC)
Aww... it actually makes me feel sad, like he's imagining what fun it would be to go back and do that sort of thing instead of actually doing it, since he is in full fire nation garb.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 02:09 am (UTC)
Awwww, bittersweet version/thought of it. I like your interpretation.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 01:57 am (UTC)
He'll always be one of them now.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 02:08 am (UTC)
Until they decide to push him out because he's stepping on too many toes ;)

Yay! Shake that groove on, Water Tribe! I like the sense of motion that I perceive from the poses.

And I dunno if it's just me, but I feel a little bit of sadness, seeing the happy faces despite the costume differences of Zhao and Co; It's like an occasion like this can never happen now because of Zhao's adamant decision of leaving the 'family' that has accepted him for one that was glad to be rid of him.

Le sigh.

Anyways, back to happy thoughts! Yeah, get jiggy with it, Water Tribe XD
Aug. 3rd, 2007 02:20 am (UTC)
Thank you :)
Every once in a while, I can't help but make pics of character dancing. Comes with the music and inspiration of the moment.
Aww, you're not the only one who saw this image with a bit of bittersweetness. Alexds has a rather sad interpretation of it.
Guess the colour also adds that bit of nostalgia.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 03:04 am (UTC)
Wow...this was a quickie? To say I'm in awe is an understatement! I love the movement here. There's so much life in all the characters.

I'm feeling for Zhao too! He looks so awkward and out of his element(hur hur) in his fire nation armor!
Aug. 3rd, 2007 05:13 am (UTC)
It was rather quick- I'd say..15 minutes top, and colors about 5-10 minutes.
Yeah, that armor must be getting in the way of some movements.

I haven't seen a single Airbender episode yet so they look like inuit dancing in the snow for me. This is the perfect, dream picture given the horrible hot weather the Outaouais area is going through.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 05:18 am (UTC)
In the world of Avatar, the Water Tribe people are based on the Inuit and natives people. The Fire Nation are something like the Chinese-Indonesia influence. The Airbenders, definitely tibetan monks and the Earth Kingdom, China.
Being in Montreal, I totally sympathize with you. They did say today on the news that the Ottawa region was the one that got the highest temperature, beating Toronto. Eeep!

Take note.

FACT: that is NOT a "quick" doodle.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 05:20 am (UTC)
Is so!
Took me around 15 minutes, for the rough blue pencils then darkening the lines a bit. There are things that are off, but what the hey. Just going with the music.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 04:58 am (UTC)
Hahahah! Oh man! That's SO awesome! I love that awkward 'uuuh, like this?' expression on his face - like he knows the steps, he just doesn't... feel the music the way the rest do yet. <3 Hee, thank you for sharing!
Aug. 3rd, 2007 05:21 am (UTC)
He Almost has it right...almost.

Oh tsk! Your art is positively lovely, what are you saying.
It may be quick, but never accurate. There are wonky things in there, but when they're quickies, who cares. Just go with the flow (right, Zhao?)
Aug. 3rd, 2007 05:39 am (UTC)
Well, not everyone can be a Lord of Dance like Zuko.

ONLY 15 minutes to draw this? *faints* How long have you been in the animation/drawing business, if you don't mind my being nosy? I figure if you can draw that fast, you must have some experiance under your belt.
Aug. 3rd, 2007 05:47 am (UTC)
Gotta admit, Zuko Firelord of the dance has some pretty sweet moves (he's a one man army!)

You saw my white hair this past weekend- I've been at it a while now...*thinks of the year I started*...
holyyyyyyyfrak! Since 1991!
I feel...no I AM old!
What am I gonna do.
Just keep doodlin', just keep doodlin'...
