Concentration

Needed to get these out, so I can concentrate on real work.
Must have discipline!
This is hard.








Allright! talking done, hopefully loose end tied up, let's get on with the final confrontation.
Er...
After I do real work.
Expect slow posting.

Go Zhao! Great stuff. And it's also very neat to see the older Fire Nation chap recognise a trap when he sees one, or at least smell something fishy going on.

Ah, old generals have seen much. His instinct is still good, and he is right!

OH MAN :DDDD

I can't stop staring at that jumping panel on the last page, you do the best gesture, ee!

I feel like I should be doing you fanart. <3 <3 <3

The jumping was the most fun to draw in the last few pages. Yay!
(love your icon!)

Love it, as always. <3

I'm so grateful you take the time to share your amazing talents with us! : D

Thank you.
To me, it's a way to let some stress out somehow. Always helps to draw something else than work. And, it is great warm up for work too :)

thank you very very much.

Ah, we should be getting into more action pages for a foreseasble future. No one is out of trouble yet!

Zhao totally looks like Batman on page 134! Emerging from the shadows with some witty remark, cape blowing. Awesome. XD

Haha, Zhao Batman! Hardly the type to actually fight for good, but hey.
He can always take the fashion tips from old bats ;)

When you said "must have discipline" the first thing that came into my mind was Jeong Jeong! haha, how wonderfully appropriate for a post such as this :-)

I love the way you made his jump on page 136 so smooth and believable... awesome!

I think I need a JeongJeong now! I need to learn drawing self control.

Thanks! I'll say it again, that jump was fun to do :)

Haha, iced stairs. I knew I liked this plan.

He put only a few of these little traps here and there to slow down any pursuers.
Ice on metal IS freakin slippery.

*bites fingers due to suspense*
Eee!
Really great 'camera' angles here!
Oh Zhao, you are so sarcastically elegant when you bow.
XD
rufftoon
Oct. 11th, 2007 01:49 am (UTC)
I don't think he can bow any other way but sarcastically. ;)

Oh man, I was so expecting him to jump off the ledge and start acting like he was waterbending or something, with all the waterbenders secreted in places around the ship. Actually thats pretty close to what seems to be happening so... uh shutting up now XD

And of course must mention my intense love for jump!Zhao on that last page, that man can make third degree arm burns sexy.
rufftoon
Oct. 11th, 2007 02:39 am (UTC)
Haha, that would have been totally awesome and totally freak out the firebenders!
Yueh: "OMG, Zhao was a waterbender all along!"
Zhao: "Aha! Pwned ya!"

But Zhao made up a plan where the waterbender wouldn't actually fight directly. Doesn't mean they didn't get involved in prepping up the ship for Zhao's little theater act.
(dang, part of me now wants to re-write that whole part. The image you gave is just too cool!...but no. I'll follow plan number one, and maybe change it afterwards if people make better suggestions)

ICE! Ha!

And explanation for the assassin, yay! And old men with old instincts, heh heh heh. Zhao may have failed -- but he wasn't incompetent in general. Muwhahah!

I love Zhao bowing. Nothing to gain, nothing to lose.
rufftoon
Oct. 11th, 2007 02:43 am (UTC)
Well, it is the north pole. Ice happens.
;)
Yah, I wanted to tie up the loose end of the assassin. A small explanation, at least.
And when Zhao bows, don't expect anything good. It's a sarcastic bow.

Heheh it's like the traps the boy set in Home Alone! XD Now I'll be waiting for thee bucket of tar and feathers! ;)

Great job, finally brought that back around about the assasin so that makes me happy to know :)
rufftoon
Oct. 11th, 2007 02:47 am (UTC)
Well...maybe a bucket of ice cold water? Waterbenders made those little ice traps ;)

Glad you're happy with my quick explanation about the assassin. One less loose end to deal with.

Hehehehe...I couldn't help staring at jump!Zhao. it's like he's making a slam dunk or somthing. >D

Zhao the basketball player? What a mental image you just gave me.
Jeong Jeong would have to be the coach :D

Very dramatic! And wow, such great action on that last page. This is all coming together so well, I can't get over it.
Good luck with all your work, too!
rufftoon
Oct. 11th, 2007 02:17 pm (UTC)
Thanks!
I'll be stretching the action sequence muscles in the next few pages.
But first real work...must concentrate on real work.

General Choi. Haahaa. Awesome. Hahn was only a few years off.
rufftoon

Ah, Hahn would have been happy to know that in the end, he was right with the name.
Just the wrong person.

Ok, 2nd page first panel? danananaana~ (Zhao)Batman.
Can't wait for the final confrontation! (but take your time. Smell the roses, drink some tea.)
rufftoon
Oct. 11th, 2007 02:18 pm (UTC)
Haha, totally Batman!Zhao :D And I haven't read that many Batman comics in my life.
I will take your advice for the tea drinking. No roses around, but the tea I can do no problem :)
