Smaaaaall update

Been pulled off the regular storyboard work to help do revisions. Arrived a bit late this morning, as I was hunting down a hotel for San Diego Comicon. IF the reservation worked (last year, it mysteriously disappeared in their system), I'll be staying at the same hotel as last year. A bit far away, so I put my name on a waiting list in case a closer hotel has a room that frees up.

I noticed a sudden burst of watchers this weekend (hello everyone!). I don't know what happened...I'm not really advertising this place...

Little Water Tribe update- having a bit of fun with part four.







Hmmm...looks like there's a whole bunch of talking that will take place before I get to any fun action stuff. Ah well, I guess it is necessary sometimes.
What is scary is...I think I'll reach those 300 pages. Eeeep!

In retrospect, I think Zhao might prefer the Arluk version. XD If only for mental images.

Though really, would he rather be told that he didn't get to bathe at all? Silly man. XD

With some creative editing, Arluk's version would be better.
And if it could save him from being submerged in cold water, yes he'd prefer not to bathe.

BWAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Oh man, Zhao's expression is priceless! A real kodak momnet. XDDD

Yes Zhao, reality sucks doesn't it?

Reality does suck- he's happy he doesn't remember THAT part. Cold baths...brrrr...

Ahahaha <3 Poor Zhao, the awful revelations just keep on coming. Love the shocked!hair :3

Wow, 300 pages of pure love! I feel so lucky to watch the epic unroll like this!
rufftoon

That's certainly one thing he's happy not to remember and will never ever ask details about. Brrrr...
Well, I don't know if I'll reach 300, but it's going to be pretty durn close.

Ahahaha Zhao and Arluk's expressions in the last row ♥♥♥.

Thank you very much!
I actually started the two pages with the three last panels- these were the clearest in my head, and I knew I wanted to end on those three before moving on. It was weird working backwards though...

Oh, Arluk... hehehehe.

Gah, revisions suck! I'm sorry =( Must be a lot of corporate stupidities going on for that to happen.

For once, I'm actually happy to be doing the revisions- I get to polish up stuff that looked awful in the first version. Plus, I get to add a few more gags that I suggested :D
I can't say it will always be fun like that though *sigh*.

I'm in Arluk's side on this. :D
I prefer his version of the story heehee...

Well...part of me is actually smiling at the thought of Horuk wrestling Zhao into a cold water bath. Must've been like tossing a cat in a filled bathtub.
But Arluk's version has its charms too.

AH, i MUST get the time to read from page 8 onwards T_T Final semester is SO BRUTAL.

Final semesters first (best of success with that)- then use the lull to recuperate. If you want to read from the start, I suggest looking at the updated pages on http://noselfcontrol.deviantart.com/
They are arranged for an easier read. When you've reached the end of the reworked pages, come back here and I'll give you the link to the other galleries.

Zhao has been tolerant of Arluk for a long time. But his patience has limits, especially since he seems to be Arluk's most favorite story device.

I like Zhao's 'startled cat' panel there.
rufftoon
Feb. 7th, 2008 04:36 pm (UTC)
Ha ha, totally like a startled cat! And just like them, you can't force him to set foot in cold water. He'll do more than scratch you.

I was always like, "What's this water tribe thing" and why does everyone love Zhao so much?"

Then yesterday, I went Water Tribe hunting, and read every page I could.

And I have to say, I get it now.

I can't wait for more.

No wonder Zhao(ka) has such an abhorrence of cold!!!

I LOVE how his hair stands on end!

I love the "I prefer my version." What, Arluk, you don't want to tell slash-stories? O:D
rufftoon

Ha ha, I bet it all goes back to that traumatic moment.
No, not being grabbed by the ocean spirit and dragged into the ocean.
The bath. The very very cold bath.
Arluk is able and willing to tell slash, but he does prefer the more "traditional" ones. He'll cater to his audience's taste. He'll even throw in a few human and spirit ones in the lot.

!! Haha! You dont have to advertise to get watchers! Youre just that freaking awesome!

Comicon! Will you be there signing autographs?
rufftoon
Feb. 7th, 2008 04:46 pm (UTC)
Deep down, I'm a bit shy- especially when it comes to insane fanart like that. I'm really not talking much about it. Some close work colleague have noooooo idea what I'm doing.
I should be helping at the Flight table again this year- keeping track of sales and such, run food errand, that sort of thing.
And autographs, when need be :D

LOL!
Oh man, these little moments give me a warm glow. Your characters are so believable and human. <3

Thank you! Glad it works- it is fun to build them up a bit more and add layers of grey to their personalities (not just B&W stuff)

I was thinking, since there are so many fans of yours, and specifically, this comic, would you like a community dedicated to fans of Water Tribe?

Where people can post art and fics based on your comic.

It could also be a place to host a chaptered index of the pages, so people who want to catch up will have a place to see all the pages.

If you'd rather not, I understand it.

But if you'd like, I can create it, get it going, (MOD it so you won't have to). We don't have to advertise, if you would prefer not to.

But based on what I see, there are a lot of fans out there who would love a common place to fangirl/boy over your creation.

That is a very very kind offer of you- thank you very much!
It would be nice to have a place where it would be easier to read-keep it indexed and such...hmmm...
At the same time I hate hogging all the space. Maybe that's why I'm comfortable at the NoSelfControl page on DA, where a lot of other Zhao material gets posted.
I will have to think about it. But many thanks again for this very kind offer! It was really appreciated. *blushes*
