What a fascinating word!    I don't know if there is an equivalent, but now that you've intrigued me I'll have to think of one.

The Dreamtime?

The wild blue yonder?

off into space?

castles in the air?

I've looked a bit around in the internet and it's definitely an Austrian expression. Germans build castles in the air, Austrians look into the fool's box :)

Didn't find any origin yet, though. Origins of initially medieval words are pretty cool and funny BTW. Guess I've mentioned that already somewhere, but an Austrian radio station explains sayings you use every day and have no idea what they mean each morning in a very funny way. And it's really fascinating, sometime irritating, funny, outrageous or whatever where something actually derives from. I really have to hunt down a book on these things, it's very enlightening if you know what a saying that exists for a hundreds or even a thousand years is based on!

Interesting ... in the musical Les Mis, little Cosette sings a song ... called 'Castle in the Clouds', as I'm sure at least some of you know ... basically a make believe place where she can escape to when things get too much for her in her real life. Which is somewhat akin to that expression, I suppose.

But anyway, I shouldn't be hijacking this thread with that ... so that I can say something constructive about the picture, I've liked each of the ones you have done ... I view people who can paint with skill in the same was as I view people who can play sport ... with a great deal of awe.

Faugar

I just wanted to say I admire your work here on this site.  I love the ability you have to create expression with seemingly minimal stokes of the brush.  This Orc looks great. and I really like the log as well.  So cool.

Anyhow, just wanted to let you know I am a fan. :D

The orcs will now get far more sympathy (hopefully they deserve it ;) ) and everyone on the RPG-Board will want such a cute worg.
Looks great, though the worg does look a bit as if somebody took care of his fur... what, orc do comb through their hair??

Cool stuff, Faugar! :) Also that little fellow has finally made it in there! And it looks now pretty much according to the given comments. - Hope Garret is also happy with the adjustments dealing with the warg - I like it, aura +1 for sticking with it and completing this fantastic version!  thumbup

it's ok, I forgot to scale it down somewhat. I wanted to tweak the background a bit, and then I think it will be ready :)

here is a modified background. I hope it's changed for the better...

Background looks better now, yup, with the mountains accentuated better and the trees leading up to them. So I'd say we take this one as the final version then :)
