Previous Entry | Next Entry

February 1st, 2008

I've got my work cut out for the part of this weekend and next week: over 700 panels of storyboards to clean up for next friday. Ayeeeeeeee! (but still fun). Starting to wonder if I should buy a Cintiq just so I could bring work home. It's a lot of $$$...

Apart from that, nothing much to report (work sleep work sleep eat work work, ad nauseam).
Noselfcontrol over on DA has made a fun Zhao meme! Made one entry, but there are plenty more being done as we speak and the entries are great! Go have a look see if you haven't already:

Still managing to sneak in some Water Tribe pages...and a bit of part 4 before returning to revisions! Woot!







Though I had these images in my head for quite some time, I think seeing some Lupin III films have influenced me a bit. Darn it, Zhao looks like Inspector Zenigata in some panels, haha!

This is possibly some of the last light moments of part 4. A few more pages, and after that, things will get serious.

That's what Arluk is trying to make happen! And he's working hard planting the idea in people's minds. XD
I don't think Zhao approves though.

Curiosity is killing me... how did the whole Zhao/cake thing get started?

It all started with Alexds's birthday- people drew her a bunch of cards, most of them featuring cake AND Zhao. We came to the conclusion that he really liked that sort of dessert.
Heck, there's a whole gallery dedicated to Cake!Zhao

The mind of fans is really weird.
Fun, but weird. XD

Arluk IS a tease.
And Swamp!Zhao has a way of burning itself into someone's mind...

Hee hee, glad you liked :D
Yeah, Arluk's type of stories I don't really do. I don't think I have the talent to pull it off.
Zhao is...slightly more tactical. Having spent some time without firebending has forced him to think differently.

that's almost two nosebleeds in one day :|
As she prepared him for a bath, she realized...IT WAS NAUJA TIME!

Zhao only wants to hear the rest of the story, Arluk. C:

Part 4?? OMG, is there anywhere I could see the rest of unrevised part 2 and part 3?!?!?!
Sorry about randomly posting on your LJ; I normally lurk, but I really want to know where I could read the rest of the story. :)

Holy crap, 700 panels! O: Good luck with all that.
(Also, man, I do love how you lay out your comic pages, especially the awesome perspective. I find that so impossible)
rufftoon
Feb. 2nd, 2008 07:06 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the luck wishin', I'll need it.
Duh? But the perspective I've seen so far in your own art is seems solid. Comes with practice (and I'm still practicing...)

BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAHAHAH!

There's a missing end-" somewhere in the flashback scene, probably should be at the end of the "need to be cleaned and given new clothes" box.

Meanwhile... Inspector Zhaoigata is clever. He didn't miss. He just didn't want to burn someone up instead of pummeling him with FISTS.

Bwhahahahahahahaaaa! Hee! *hiccup* Heee heheheheheheeheeheeheeheeee!

Oops, something to fix- thanks for catching that.
And Zhao knows there's a certain satisfaction that comes with pummeling people that firebending doesn't quite give.

700 panels = ninja fun! (we talk in NaNoWriMo about bringing in the Ninja Squirrels when there's a lot of work to be done, lol). So, he firebends early this time?
rufftoon
Feb. 2nd, 2008 07:03 pm (UTC)
I need a ninja squirrel! As long as it can draw...
He's recovered his firebending now after his return to the Water Tribe. So I wouldn't call it early firebending.

You're right- Zhao wouldn't mind a bit of intimacy. His prospect in the Water Tribe are a bit low though- people know who he is, he has certain violent tendencies...but Arluk is trying to help, really!

OH MY GOD, MAD!ZHAO. HAHAHAHA, THIS IS AWESOME!

I love how the entire "and then something happened" little story sequence sounds like something out of a bad fanfic. If I were Zhao, I'd be lighting things on fire too! :D
rufftoon
Feb. 2nd, 2008 07:12 pm (UTC)
Ha ha, Arluk would make one bad fanfic writer.
Hot scenes and all, but bad fanfics. XD

Awww I am so far behind on the comic I shall never catch up ;^; These panels are hilarious and beautifully drawn though...I dunno what's going on. Nevertheless...ONWARDS I PLUNGE *plunge*

(incidentally I want moar Beard!Zhao. I find that almost as funny as Cake!Zhao and Mad!Zhao <3's)

rufftoon
Feb. 2nd, 2008 07:14 pm (UTC)
Hurray for plunges!
Beard!Zhao takes away from some Zhaoness that his sideburns give him. He's mighty proud of his sudeburns.

Hahaha! I love that Calvin and Hobbes moment in the last page! That's so great! :D

(And man, that first page. XD Racy!)
rufftoon
Feb. 2nd, 2008 07:17 pm (UTC)
C&H moment? Hee hee, I had not thought of it. You're right!
Racy? Arluk didn't even had the time to get to the good part!
