first date pg1 by limey404 first date pg1 by limey404
full view peeps.

yup, it's back up. except this time, the background in the first panel is alll ala limey. haha, i just took that friggin house and painted right over the sucker, turning it into... the exact same house! except this time i made it. if you don't believe me, check the matching sceencap. trust me, i made this mo fo. and yes it was a mo fo to make. 8D

i know i said in my journal that "there was no way in hell" i would do exactly what i just did (lulz) a) I didn't want pg 1 to stay down forever and b) i didn't want a blank bg. it wasn't so bad making it. and you know, there are always going to be people out there with giant sticks up their asses. all you have to do is laugh and move on!

so here's pg 1 all over again... now i'll be able to work on pg 6. i've been pretty busy lately (and sorta kinda depressed...moving on) which is why 6 has been delay. but it's all good, i'll work on it tomorrow. : )

this one's for all the cool people out there!

and on to page 2!>> [link]

I love this! Definitely seems ATLA realistic. Follow ups?
EphemeraLuna Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2013
Alright, I've read the other half of the story on youtube (despite the little issues with it that I pointed out in another comment, because I just didn't want to wait <^_^) and I wasn't disappointed at all. It was kind of cliché in the sense that the basic idea has been done before a lot, but that on itself is not a bad thing at all, especially in this case, for you used that idea in a way that was very fitting and kept it really interesting. I didn't even see the little "twist" coming at the end despite how cliché it is and that says a lot already. ^^

And the whole "outing"/"date" thing too. It's a simple thing, but it made me laugh still partly just because it's fun and also because I could, again, so see that happen in the real show. Not just that, the whole thing. 

I've already said that a couple of times already, but that's because it's a really influential point to me. There are so many fanfics I've stopped reading just because people very often cannot portray these characters very well. They try, but don't quite get there, there's often something off about them still. But here, there was none of that. The characters are how they're supposed to be, the whole thing is nothing fancy, just a cute little teenage love story, adorably touching like the real show is. I love ATLA, so of course, the closer you get to making me believe your art is cannon, the more I love your art. Beautiful job. :)

I've browsed through your gallery and noticed that you stopped colouring these pages halfway through... Now I'm hesitating to start reading this comic because it looks so beautiful I fear I might get really drawn in and then be really bothered to go back to colorless, more sketchy drawings... 

Ahh, I'll read anyway, it looks too good not too, but do you plan on coloring in the rest? Do you also plan on making other ATLA comics?

I also wanted to point out that the drawing style is so close to the original show, it almost looks like it's an official release. You've definitely got talent, I love it. :)

typical. someone says "Avatar's eyes only," and he reads it anyway. see, there's a lesson we can all learn from this: NEVER, and I mean NEVER, give a message that's for Aang to Sokka, because he'll read it even if you tell him not to.
Pietroigor Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2010
Obiously, Sokka do what Sokka should do...
DeMann6654 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2010  Professional Writer
But I think he looks great in the bottom-left frame (forgot to mention that.)

DeMann6654 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2010  Professional Writer
Like I said on the cover, I love the idea!

Just an honest critique of this first page, though, on some things that I personally feel would improve it.

I think it would be funny to have Sokka doing something goofy when he hears the knock at the door. Maybe working on one of his goofy paintings, surrounded by a pile of crumpled papers?

Also I feel that he doesn't react naturally when he receives the note. My book 3 won't arrive in the mail for another 2 days, but I think Sokka tends to react very seriously whenever he gets some sort of "official" task. Just my thoughts on that.

I think his "shifty eyes" look kindov' awkward; they are kind of off and he doens't look "shifty." He kindov' looks like he has a lazy eye 0_o

Anyway, just some thoughts on the first page. Like I said, I really like your idea and I plan to read the whole (or as much as you've done) thing!

LOL I love the fact that you got so determined to have this up, that you went against everything you said you wouldn't do.


Sucks you lost all those comments though. Oh well, we all know people were excited for this comic to get started.

I've had problems with having screenshots taken down too... Granted, I was dubbing them, as upposed to what you did... But it's still annoying.

Wonderful. =D Good to see this one again--hopefully, it'll stay up this time. Nice job.
