More reworked Water Tribe pages

Nothing much happened this weekend- got three new books:
The Search for the Last undiscovered Animals by Karl P.N. Shuker. He has a regular forum in the magazine Fortean Times, plus the book was on special.
The Little Ice Age. How much of the world was colder for about 500 years between 1300 and 1800 give or take, and how it affected history.
The Worst Journey In The World- the retelling of Scott's expedition to the South Pole and how everything went wrong- as retold by one survivor.

And some Water Tribe stuff- reworks of part 2.
I swear, all I do these days is fix Zhao's receding hairline...making sure it recedes even more XD.









What is going to be fun is I'll get to add new pages soon - got to spend a tiny bit more time with Zhao's return in the army. Just a few extra pages, but at least it will better that just quickly browsing over. Got one extra scene clear in my mind, and it will hook up with something that we've seen in part 3. Eh, that's what is fun about working backwards. I guess I've said that quite a few times, right?
Plus, I get to introduce the conspirating officers a bit more too.
So...I may not do much, but I do keep busy.

I really love the pages with Iroh in it. :D

Man...I'm missing Iroh already...with episode 14 not showing yet...;_; *sigh*

We all need a little dose of Iroh once in a while.

As for future episodes of Avatar, they will air. Just a bit more patience...

Thank you- I tried tweaking Iroh a bit this time around. Little things. I think I managed, in some panels, not to make him more ugly. Ouf!
As for the tiny reveal...this may be all we see of the new Firelord in this story.

stfu Zuko your face is gross.

I really love how you shade these ;o;.

Ha ha, but he uses the grossness of the scar to make himself look tougher than he actually is. That's political manipulation, of sort.
Thank you- I always feel like I'm doing these graytones too quickly- just enough to hide mistakes anyway.
Oh! Last night, I dreamt about YOUR Lucius. Don't ask why he was yours, it's dream logic. He was spying on my house, claiming there was a goblin hiding in there. He'd use different disguises, including someone hired to mow the lawn.
Lucius handling a lawnmower is not a pretty sight.

Wonderful pages with great pacing!

Also I have to applaud your good taste in books!

Thank you!
As for the books, after only reading them will I see if my tastes are good or not. (got to think positive and think they are good...)

I still really like the fact that you never really show his face. I just can't stand him. XD

I don't mind Zuko so much- he was a good antagonist in the first season, and he's turned into a (lovable) dork afterwards.
I'd still want to slap him a few times though.

AHAHA! Zuko speaks in the royal 'We'! XD That's so great. Iroh's "you've learned how to tell a good story" is still probably my favorite line.
rufftoon

Zuko only uses the "We" when he wants to sound official.
When delivering threats, he goes more personal. He thinks it has more effect.

I read The Little Ice Age a couple of years ago. Slightly too technical for my tastes without enough 'story' to back it up...but really interesting and freaky. :)
rufftoon
Feb. 11th, 2008 04:29 pm (UTC)
I'll see how it is- after having read highly technical books about ancient Egypt, maybe this won't feel too heavy. I've got a book backlog to go through first.

Aww, we all love Iroh.

Love how you introduce Zuko. :D
rufftoon
Feb. 11th, 2008 04:31 pm (UTC)
You know...you're right. Of all the main cast, Iroh is the one that everybody seems to love no matter what.
Say...introduction of Zuko kinda looks like you icon there.
Minus the troops.
And the room I drew is longer.
(and will I stop squinting to look at all the details in your icon???)

I really like the backgrounds and perspective. *bows to the awesomeness*
rufftoon
Feb. 11th, 2008 04:32 pm (UTC)
Practicing perspective still- needs a few tweaks more, but is getting better. Yay!! I'm trying not to be background lazy as I used to.

Haha, Firelord Zuko is still sort of weird XD I'm imagining him lisping all the words... still nice that he doesn't hold (much of) a grudge.

Ooh, army Zhao <3
rufftoon
Feb. 11th, 2008 05:08 pm (UTC)
I know! Firelord Zuko...guess Iroh wanted to go into retirement of sorts, until Zuko begged him to come back and help a bit.
I bet uncle had really long talks with his nephew even before Zhao showed up for the audience.
Oh yesh, army Zhao- soon coming up with new pages!

Yey we get to see Zhao in uniform. GRRR BABY YEAH ;D

Ahahaha oh Zuko. No one takes you seriously even when you're the Firelord just cause you're such a silly willy drama queen *rubs bald head affectionately...eeeky-eeeky-eek* XD

Bahahaha also receding hairline? Keep it up and Zuko will get jealous. Zhao would still look smexy with a bald head ;D

also those books sound uberneat 8D
rufftoon
Feb. 12th, 2008 05:01 am (UTC)
Uniformed Zhao coming up!!
Zuko will have to work superhard before being taken seriously. He might just make it in...oh...40 to 50 years?

Wonderfull! The scene with Iroh in doubt, and his change of mind in page 69 is most impressive, so much complex information in just one page. The shading is indeed excellent, the throne room looks spacious and real, with much atmosphere. Great job on the mysterious fire lord and revelation! Somehow the phrase 'One step out of line..' is becoming a theme in the avatarverse :)

Thank you- very glad this scene worked. I never know if make these too long or too short.
Ha ha, they do love threatening people in the Avatarverse XD

In p.70, 'questioned' has an extra 'n' and in the 1st panel of p.71, it should be "He will start as a petty officer".

Thanks for the typo corrections! Very appreciated. I will correct them on the DA page.
