Does anyone want her?  It doesn't have to be a people entry...could be a story... could even go with 'The Facts of Life' as Coren has so kindly just bumped it up again to remind me to FINISH it.    

I am happy to say that I am

DONE giving, marking, collating final exams AND posting final grades!  

I am now officially ON VACATION.

Gives a loud cheer for the Bard!

That reminds me ... I've got some unfinished writing about the Bard to do ... you deserve something for finishing your marking etc, Bard.

1) I am about to aura the Bard for such a wonderful picture.

2) Like a true poet, I felt completely inspired by this piece; so much so, that I wrote not one poem but two. Not for me to decide where they go; but I will publish them in the Library and hope they meet site standards.

3) Here's a teaser from the second of the two:

In public you are gorgeous,
In private even more
But never with another soul
Are you simply what you are.

There you go. To the library!

Oh, how beautiful!

I like especially her posture, her expression, her hair, her arms, the setting, the dress, the topof it!

How long did it take you to finish it? And what software did you use?

Oh - and did I mention that I am blown away by this? A basin is not enough, I think we might have to haul in a whole bath-tub of aura for this one!

For me this is hands down the best picture I've ever seen you draw.

I've heard it said repeatedly that one of the hardest steps for an artist is to learn to draw people and you've definitely mastered it.  This picture looks like it could be a photograph!

+ aura from me as well.

I agree with the praise. This is really a great picture.  The pose and composition make it great.

For me it seems to fit with the  The Lady of Chrynna Dabney story.  Especially part 4 with the wedding and all.  However, while I can find the story in the search I cannot seem to locate it in the Library.  I will PM Art on that.

Great work once again, Judy, and aura +1!

As for the "missing story", here's the explanation I've also sent Seeker:

Well, the reason for that is that various stories still haven't been converted to the "new" Library format, where everything is organized in books which have their own themes, can be downloaded etc. In such cases we require a suggestion where to put it, summaries/introductions for the whole stories and for the single chapters, and if the members who wrote these stories didn't provide them due to their absence when we changed the system, all these stories are still not converted. It's a lot of work to convert them, so I need these conditions fulfilled.

All such texts BTW can be found in a menu, even though they are hidden: See the Library menu, the last category called OTHERS.

I'll posted this already in Athviaro's thread, but maybe it should better go in here:

Judy, maybe if you could do her a tad more darkskinned, she could be:

From the new history tables:

Quote
Marriage of the Santharian Kind Mantheros II. and Skeijorna Ithsje Ciosaskjan
Only a few months after his coronation the young Mantheros marries the much older, but extremely beautiful dark skinned Skeijorna Ithsje Ciosaskjan, daughter of the most prominent Avennorian merchant. Aside from the wealth Ithsje undoubtedly brings with her, the marriage is clearly a matter of prestige, as even highly ranked Shan'Thai officials courted for her, but she declined every offer.

So she would be Avennorian. Well, she doesn't look old, so maybe that is not such a good idea - or that is a picture of her youth.

Yeah, I guess it might indeed be used as a picture of the young Ithsje, also we have the pearls here as a typical Avennorian resource and thus representation of status. So that would work rather well methinks.

Excellent pic, Judith. :)  Auried. thumbup

If I had a critique, it would be that it has a very modern feel about it.  But, takes nothing away from the quality of the pic itself.

Ups, where is this picture? I didn't find her in Judy's resources either. I would have liked to have another look at it, maybe she is Veior Ithvinna Rigvildskan, Graveness of the Pearl Coast, first wife of Santhran Lysarian?

Don't know why it's not showing up here, but it's on the site already (see thread icon), here.
