Title: Gnome 2 by Faugar
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 05 November 2000, 08:57:00
Faugar yesterday mailed another gnome. Here are his original words:

"hi there.

I had the impression the gnome picture i delivered wasn't quite... what it was expected to be :)  
so here's another one I finished - it's collored, but you can make greyscale (so it's like the others in race section) if you like... I hope you like this one better... I do :)   Or you could post it on the forum for the team to decide, ok?"

Okeydokey, so here it his - hope it finds the approval of our gnome experts:

Title: HAHAHA!

Well, don't know why Xaron hasn't posted to the gnome picture until now. Probably because it has it's own style, maybe a a bit too much on the comic side?

Yeah, Artimidor, guess you know the art of telepathy...

I have mixed feelings over the image: there are elements that are gnomish, but the picture doesn't match with the one within my head...:

Xaron, the annoying:smokin
Shelam, master of delusion

Well.. :/   too bad.. I'm not forcing anyone to accept this poor little gnome, so don't worry. I like the picture, but don't see why anyone else should.
*mumbling to self*:
It's good I bought this mind-reading-helmet, finally I'll know what ppl want..

Title: Hmmmm......
Post by: Greybark on 21 November 2000, 21:45:00
:eek Ya know....If its not a gnome.....that that means it could be something else......
Would you mind me using him as a Rat Brownie? He doesn't have the standard Brownie looks (the eyes), but Rat Brownies are supposed to be a bit distorted from the standard....His clothes, his look.....if he was a Rat Brownie, he would have to be a heroic leader......With your permission, I'll make him someone legendary. What do you think?

The mischeivious look.....It's just very Brownie :) have to go create......

Title: Answering Faugar's question...
Post by: Curgan2 on 24 November 2000, 08:58:00
If I understood it correctly, you wanted to ask me if I look like your drawing, but you changed your mind. Well... of course I don't look like it.
It looks just like my *beautiful* cousin.

PS1. I am Uglier!
PS2. You can't make a joke to somebody else, unless you can make fun of your self.

Title: who we look like..
Post by: Faugar on 24 November 2000, 15:07:00
LOL.. no, actually I was going to ask if there're more gnomes in the family ;)
He also looks a bit like me (glad I didn't post my phot, aren't you? ;) ,... well, I think that there's a little of me in every picture I make, and most of the characters artists draw do resemble them! I could give you a few examples where that applies (like Bisley, for example..), so beware! One day I might reveal my self to you all - prepare to be scared ;)
p.s. LOL
p.p.s. u might be right about that ;)

*hehe* What's your personal part in the pic, Faugar? The nose and the ears? *grin*

BTW: Speaking about nose and ears - if we use the picture e.g. for the Rat Brownies these parts could be something which have developped in the process of evolution. Smelling and hearing could be something very important for such Brownies living in the darkness...

hmmmm.....interesting......I hadn't thought of that!

Title: No gnomes in the family...
Post by: Curgan2 on 25 November 2000, 10:50:00
No he's the only gnome, but we have elves, orcs, trolls and dragons....

Title: races
Post by: Faugar on 25 November 2000, 13:41:00
really?! I'm a dragon myself.. well.. according to the chineese ;)  I don't loook like one though.. I'm afraid Art was almost right.. almost ;)  

Title: Re: races
Post by: Greybark on 25 November 2000, 22:27:00
Er..why would Chinese think you are a dragon?

Title: why?
Post by: Faugar on 26 November 2000, 08:12:00
I was born in the year of the dragon :)  

Title: Re: why?
Post by: Greybark on 30 November 2000, 04:19:00
ah.....year of the rat, myself. Not too many people take it too seriously these days, though.

Title: Re: why?
Post by: Bard Judith on 29 August 2001, 20:30:00
Year of The Rooster
Leo in Western astrology
Salmon in Ojibway calendar
Pitta in Auryvedic reckoning
Fire in the Elements
Choleric by Temperment

Funny, although I don't 'hold with' astrology at all, all my 'signs' match up... someone who is aggressive, energetic, artistic, bossy, hot-tempered and emotional....hmmmmm....

Sudden idea for expanding the whole cosmology/calendar concept...would Santhurians not naturally have some sort of astrology, as well as astronomy?  The wizard societies must certainly have some associations...and the dwarves have their gemstones for month names... something else for me to rattle around in my head and then come up with a long list for our Sage to post (grin)

hmmmm......yes, that does make sense......let me ponder Brownie astrology for awhile....

Title: Re: why?
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 30 August 2001, 12:35:00
I've made some concepts at the Cosmology section concerning star constellations, darkwinds etc. (which reminds me that I still have this darkwinds greyscale picture for a dark elven tribe somewhere, which only needs integration). The wind constellations are still not completed yet... Ah, work, work, work...

Could I get a look at that Art, I plan on doing some work on the Dark elf tribe living in the Hovel Frond Forest Soon.

Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 30 August 2001, 15:38:00
Well, I'm not a Faugar, but this is the pic I speak of. Should be a Coat of Arms as well as the picture used for the overall darkwinds entry where all named winds are placed in the appropriate directions...

Heavily inspired by the first Scream-movie (well, forget about 2+3)... Maybe with a bit of a 3D effect it could be a round shield banner?

Title: Perfect
Post by: Drogo on 30 August 2001, 15:48:00
YEA!!!!  I like it, it will be perfect for my dark elves.  They could see this as the embodiment of Coor.  Can I claim it?

Title: Re: Perfect
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 31 August 2001, 12:39:00
You can, yup. Meant for a dark elven tribe. If you have one, feel free to use it. See Cosmology section for more details on darkwinds.
