Title: Visual art in Santharia?
Post by: Emrah Lark on July 09, 2012, 03:41:01 AM
Hey. I'm thinking about writing a painter character - a little bit in fashion of a classical fantasy bard but with a paintbrush instead of a lute, so to speak. I tried to find some information about painting in Santharia but I didn't succeed. There's quite a wide range of questions I'd like to ask, considering materials and styles found in Santharia, as well as general role of painters here. Can they get wealthy by making portraits of rich people (as in Renaissance Europe)? And so on...

Thanks a lot for your ideas.

Well, ask you questions and I will answer them :)

Of course we have the fine arts here, painters adn other artists also.

Let's begin with Faugar (http://www.santharia.com/people/faugar.htm)
I fear that is the only one, which reminds me, that I promised to write one for Quellion and Seeker needs one too (as all others would deserve one).

You find our artists under --> People (the brown head), --> Artists and Bards

The city of artists is Bardavos (entry a bit outdated, but well, ask me)

Somewhere is a submission about paints and brushes, I have a look for you.

And yes, if you are famous enough, you should be able to earn your living by doing portraits.

Maybe PM Judy, she has done some style-things.

Edit:
This has not mde it on the site yet, but maybe it helps

Wow. Thanks a lot! This looks perfect, it's more than good enough so far. I'll start to write and then, if needed, I'll ask more specific questions.

Yes, it was just a very good reason.
