Yup, I posted a few pics on rping side here. Not quite the best example of my abilities, and I can work in the painterly, realistic style of compendium. ;)

Ah, I selected the ferret as I'm actually better at drawing creatures and people than inorganic things- but I think you're right, something really simple is probably best to start off with, so might I try the salen pins to begin with instead? But thankyou for reserving the ferret anyway! :)

I'm excited to be finally drawing for the compendium!

Apparantly I need an account on the RP side to see your pics.  Nevertheless, the Salen Pins would be a perfect place to start.  I will update the post again.  thumbup

Oh Jenna! An artist!

I think the Jenna and Ghoulish pictures would work well with Santh. Just needs some color and background etc. The style seems to fit. The others are good too, but probably too cartoonish for Santh.  thumbup

There's definitely potential in there, Jenna! You just need to try your hand on coloured pics and do them as detailed as possible (like in the first image), then the style should fit to the rest of the site's pics I'd say :) - But yup, start small, and then go for more ambitious projects si definitely good advice!  cool

Thanks, both of you! Yup, I am going to be drawing the picture in a realistic, full-technicolour style in keeping with santh  :D As I said, I'm not brilliant, but what better way to get better and contribute to santharia at the same time!?

Meanwhile, my quick preliminary sketch has turned into a hand tipping some pins out of a pouch. Hope that isn't too fancy for the entry. buck

Hey Seeker. Just thought that you might be interested in the Double Kilij weapon. It is said to be extremely beautiful, and it might be a fun project. :)

I would also love to see what you could do with the Hearth Bush if you ever get the time!

I'd like to see the Cairnhoom creature illustrated. Yeah, its a Nybelmar creation...*Durgho forgive me* but it begs for a picture!

Just to show the Nybelmarians that I am not all that bad.  kiss

Hey, not to toot my own horn or anything, but if you were looking for something small and colourfull to work your way up from, the Inkfish would make a very nice picture! Or Geodes! I know I don't have any kind of seniority, but give them a look, and see if they interest you. They definitely fascinate me.

Azhira good suggestion, I wasn't even aware those things existed.
Sivartius you certainly don't need seniority to get a picture drawn.

I will add the suggestions. 

HEY ART, if you had your pick, which items under the Nepris list do you want drawn the most?

Well, as we're heading into the Baych Swamps I guess I have to say that I'd need a few baych trees to show somewhere... ;) Maybe you can take some of your foggy backgrounds and basically expand/combine them a bit by showing some baych trees.

If you're asking for a monster: a giant rat would always be great, simply because it's a monster that can be in any environment, and I could use something to finish the underground laboratory section with an additional, a bit stronger critter.

Until when do you need the baych trees?

Eldor, what are you doing with a Double Kilij? Did I miss an interesting CD?

Seeker, of course I do not have any objections if you want to try your hands on it, preferable with a Shendar warrior using it ? grin
