Title: Seeking Permission- Ximax Academy
Post by: Seeker on 11 February 2012, 14:42:26
OK I was going to keep this one a secret, but after reading through some of the development of the Ximax Magical Academy I saw there is alot of...erm.. emotion around this place.  :undecided:

I am seeking permission to paint the Ximax Academy.

This would be my most ambitious picture/s yet for me. This will mainly focus on the inner towers and will inlcude more than one picture, and I am hoping once I am done to employ Art's talents with some Flash magic.  I am purposely being vague about the layout and focal point of the picture/s.  However I suspect I will show pieces of it as I go along, instead of waiting until the very end to reveal it.

This of course will be done as I continue to work with Art on the Treasure Shoals game.

Sounds awesome to me Seeker :)

After your marvelous efforts with the 'cityscapes' of Elving, Milkengrad and Ciosa, and the many other paintings you've contributed to the dream, I can't wait to see what you come up with for Ximax Academy.

I guess that a lot of passionate people were involved in the development of the Ximax Magical Academy and that not all the passions and emotions thought it should be developed in the same direction. ;)

Edit:
PS Shouldn't it be Seekering Permission?

Yeah, what Dek said.  The entry is complete now, and fairly new, so I doubt that painting it would cause any problems.

I'd love to see that project realized, Seeker! Of course this will be quite an undertaking from the details I read in the PM you sent, so it will last some time to get it done... But I'm happy to help with an Flash I can to make the picture(s) even more effective, and I'm sure Ximax developers will be happy to see that one realized as well. Besides, having a lot of source material on the Academy might also help to make some sort of Santhworld module out of it, however that might turn out - but as we're trying to make the initial picture already interactive that might be the next step. :)

So yup, go ahead, Seeker!  :thumbup:

The permission you seek is yours, though you hardly need ask for it! It was a fun project to organize and help write--I hope it will be equally enjoyable to paint.

If there's anything I can do to assist, please don't hesitate to let us know! Good luck, Seeker.  :heart:

Awesome thanks guys.

I started work on one of the towers tonight.  I'm loving how it is turning out.  :thumbup:

Well unfortunately Azhira I am not doing a pic of the Lobby of the Fire Tower nor a picture of the catacombs housing the largest representation of our dear patroness.  This project will be pictures of the towers from the outside view.  In fact I have already completed the pic of the Fire Tower.  I am not quite ready to share that one yet though.
