Just finished Rufftoon’s comic Water Tribe thanks to Anoia and have had a total blast drawing some celebratory shirtless Zhao for it. I love this character! I guess I just have a soft spot for villainous old men, and the military, and damn good characterization.
Also thanks to Anoia for helping me suss out his left deltoid, just drew it a biiiit off.
Aaaaw, I’m touched that people still enjoy reading it. :)
I totally forgot Free Comic Book Day was this weekend! Yes, it is! I drew Dark Horse’s Avatar: The Last Airbender FCBD offering, written by Gene Yang. Avatar is my favourite animated show and Gene is one of my favourite people in comics, so getting to do this project was such an honor. *_* Here are some preview pages, coloured by Cris Peter, who also coloured The Adventures of Superhero Girl.
I hope you enjoy our comic! Please let me know what you think if you manage to grab a copy. :D PS. I think these are pages 2 & 3, so this is not the very beginning of the comic.
One last trip down memory lane for tonight (can you tell I am digging through old files?), this time from January of 2007. This is a personal favorite and it came about in a funny way. They told us we could make some “creator t-shirts” with whatever art we wanted on them and they would sell a limited run on the network website. So I made this. And they said, “Yeah, not that one.” The calligraphy, by S.L. Lee, PhD., is from the Blue Spirit’s wanted poster.
While I’m at it, here is the “Have You Seen My flying Bison?” poster I made for the ATLA Book 2 episode, “Lake Laogai,” with calligraphy by S.L. Lee, PhD, slightly-less way back in May of 2006. Aang looks like an egg with Aang’s face drawn on it.
HAHA! They announced it, finally! I was incredibly fortunate to be asked to draw a short Avatar: The Last Airbender comic (10 pages) for Dark Horse’s Free Comic Book Day offerings! Being a giant ATLA nerd, I was BEYOND thrilled to contribute to that world in a small way. The story is written by one of my favourite comic people, Gene Yang, and will be available in May on Free Comic Book Day.
Above is the final cover, coloured by Cris Peter, who also coloured The Adventures of Superhero Girl, along with pencils, inks and thumbnails for the process junkies. I was drawing the cover before the story was nailed down, so I was told to draw “something exciting with Sokka & Suki, something action-y.” haha, okay.
So happy I go to do this! *_*
We’re all big fans of Faith’s work and very excited to work her for a short spell before she vanishes into the Nameless City.
