Judy is attempting to finish off the last 10 % in a good many of her uncompleted picture entries (tears of gratitude from the ever-patient Sage ensue here) and to that end is posting for final critique and polish.

Here, to start off with, is the birthday boy, Mr. Frock Coat - and his manor as a bonus.  He can be cropped for a more vertical format as you see fit.

Wo-hooo, Judy, hold your horses! I can't dish out so many aura points in one day!!! rolling Well, on second thought, I'llthen  just add distributing aura points to my favourite bard to my morning routine for a week or so... ;)

Anyway, about this one: Both of these pictures are marvellous - character and background, and I hope someone got an idea where to place this guy, cause he looks really excellent. Could be anything, ideally something related to art, as he just has that Beethovnian look, so it could be a poet, musician, even a philosopher of sorts, but at any rate it's a great picture!

The background I definitely have in mind already to use in Santhworld - we needed some buildings there anyway to represent something here and there, and I guess this can serve very well for a key location, and I'm pretty sure I can use multiple crops of that - brilliant!

Aura +1 for this one! Magnificent! clap clap clap

Oh, and BTW: Of course I always try to use the picture in its fullest form to go with an entry, the trouble is only if a picture is too high or wide, then I'll have to work within limits. The enlarged version of a picture can always show the whole thing of course, so nothing that is drawn gets lost when put up on site.

But depending on what we want to emphasize, this one could be cropped nicely for the person's entry (showing just the person), then we could show the whole picture (manor + person) in case the manor is somewhat of importance, or we want to illustrate e.g. a village or town and use this as a representive picture for that. Add to that the various Santhworld crops and we get an absolure maximum out of such a large pic as this!  grin So all perfect there!

Wondrous Judith!

+1 Aura!

I'm only disappointed because I can't apply the background to anywhere in Nybelmar  buck

I love the design on Mr. Frock Coat's vest there. It looks brilliant!

Beyond the horizon where the earth and the heavens meet
lies a certain point where they are not joined together and where, by stooping,
one might pass under the roof of the heavens.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.
