The Plan by rufftoon The Plan by rufftoon
Credit where credit is due:

It was this image by zimmay :

[link]

That got the little hamster wheel in my head turning. I kept thinking "oh yeah, I bet Iroh would love to own a chain of tea shops!"

So here it is, another silly idea I needed to get out of my head.

Colours done a bit quickly, but at least, it's in colour! Nah. It was almost just B&W, but I felt a bit cheap. See, that's what DA does to me! Makes me want to colour more stuff.

what's hilarious is that the local tea outlet, Teaopia, has free samples in the form of a teapot with little disposable cups. They rotate through flavours, and right now, the front door's tea IS genmaicha. XD

Oh, it's so funny! It matches 'Avatar' perfectly. Both uncle Iroh and Zuko are very cute and their reactions are what exactly like would be in serial. What's more your paintings are good, so I'm thinking it's really good job. ;)
Really, I fall in love with this!

Are you secretly a staff of the Avatar production team? Because their characteristics in your comic (eg; Zuko's reactions, Iroh's remarks) are exactly what it would be like if this scene was aired on TV!

If not, then you did a really good job because this is enough to convince me that you are! :D

It is no secret that I helped a bit on season 3- got credited for it. But I think I did this comic before I did, so this is purely fan work.

He IS part of the Avatar production team!
He work as a storyboard artist, that's why the characters he draws in his comics looks so much to the ones in the serie!

If Iroh could manage that, the next thing will be Zuko defeating Azula with Ginseng tea. Or Jasmine. Depends on it xD
Would go like this:
*on the battlefield*
Zuko: No lightning today?
Azula: ARGH! I'll show you lightning!
Zuko:.... *trows teapot with tea*
Azula: :O
>:D *makes lightning*
BOOM! Electrocutes herself.


Okay, that was my little rant :D Going to see more now.

If Iroh still has a general-conquering side, he wouldn't mind conquest by tea.

Yup, you're right.
