Enough grumpy old men. Next updates, plans are made.
The next update may be a bit late too: work, plus this is the final week of Avatar, and after that SDCC. I'll see if I can squeeze in a new page or two.
Page original size 5,5" X 8". Rough pencils. Grey shading, lettering and word ballons done in Photoshop These pages done for fun, and also as a good exercise in storytelling and planning on such a long scale, which I had not really done before. I am not planning on inking, cleaning more or coloring them. I simply do not have the time.
The Avatar universe belongs to Mike, Bryan, Nickelodeon-Viacom-MTV. All the characters belong to them, but a few of the extras are my own creation. Art by
(To quote an often-used expletive on the AvatarSpirit.net forums) Kohdammit! Now you've gone and made me sympathetic towards Zhao! (Even if he is a good guy in the end, he's just so grumpy and incorrigible and, and.... Zhaoish! xD)
Though, seeing Horuk try to keep his cool (and bring Zhaoka back to the light side!) as a negotiator was very humorous! Can't wait to see if Zhao agrees to speak with the council!
Weeell, the plot thickens! You've made Zhao a very complex character in my thinking. It's good to see that he feels making those shortcuts was a mistake! Admitting one's shortcomings is the first step towards conquering them.
Horuk gave a very wise answer there. He's probably thinking...what do I say to that? And not knowing if his words will be affective--but he honestly says what he thinks.
The shortcuts were only a mistake because he failed. If he'd succeeded with his plan of getting rich quick, then he would have complimented himself. Horuk isn't a profound or complicated thinker. His best answers are the direct ones.
Thank you for giving some yummyness! All my fave. Avitard artists are being so gracious these few days before the Finale-I can't wait to see what the final episodes will inspire everyone to do. Thank you!
