Hi
« on: 17 September 2010, 07:14:17 »

A quick hello from a noob.

I was invited to have a look by bard Judith ... fascinating.

I am a british fantasy and sf artist so I may be able to contribute in some way.

Hi Ferall

Wonderful. Wonderful, Wonderful to have a new artist around.  There are certainly plenty for artists to contribute here. 

May we see an example of your work?

Welcome to the dream, Ferall! I see that you have met Seeker, the local Master-artist?

Why! I just discovered Seeker's last name!

Seeker Master-Artist

They did that in the middle ages right? Took their proffession and made it their last name.


Err...back on topic. We always need another artist, so many entries, so few pictures. I'm sure you'll settle in, in no time!

The link to photobucket works great Ferall.

I am very impressed with your castle drawings as well as many of the watercolors.  Nice textures and colorful scenes, very beautiful.   I am glad Judith sent you our way.

I encourage you to check out some of the threads in the artist forum to get an idea how things work for the artists.  Most of us work with digital media which allows us to post for comments and then easily make changes.  However if you work with "real" paint exclusively we can work with that too.  Tikanni is a great example of one of our artists that works in watercolors.  So far she has mainly illustrated entries she has written herself, but that is not required.

Take a look around the site and if you see an entry you would like to illustrate let us know and we can give you some pointers before you begin.  Also if you have any pictures already done that you think could work for an entry here or there let us know and we can see if it is a "fit". 


Great to have you here!

Welcome Ferall

I can't pretend to be an artist, but I can say that whatever you have to contribute this site will gladly take it - artist, author, musician, they're all here.

Like I said, I can't welcome you with tips or pointers, but I can say whatever you do, do it wiith gusto and enjoy it.

Welcome from me.

Have a great time in the Dream.

Some really cool stuff you've got there, Ferall! So hello and welcome from me as well! wave I'm busy this weekend with site update, but after that I can have a closer look and we can try to figure out where we might be able to put what pic from the one's you have in your gallery. :)

Great to have you around, Ferall!

Hayden!  I mean Ferall - a hearty welcome to you, and so glad you were able to discover our Compendium so swiftly.  :)  I love Holly for posting that SB link; you will find even more folk ready to appreciate your talent here in Santharia.

Does that not look like genuine Udzera Blue on the roofs of that Original Castletown picture? 

Perhaps we can talk you into using that as an illustration for the Varcopas entry.... http://www.santharia.com/places/varcopas.htm ... which specifies white buildings with blue roofs!

thanks for the welcomes

2 immediate thoughts

 -a lot of my large full colour work is done using traditional media but I often digitise and tweak or modify. However, I have done  lot of digital pieces -generally from sketches or b/w images . . . easy to change or modify on request  :) 

-looking at page for Port Varcopas, suggested by Bard Judith -ideas flowing already

Hi Ferall,

and welcome from me, too! Those are fantastic pictures. I like the gorge and the mausoleums in particular.

If you wanted to use a Santharian Place entry to get inspired to produce new works - I wonder whether The Magical Academy of Ximax and/or The City of Ximax would suit your style? The Academy has a number of interesting towers ...

Just an idea.

My suggestion Ferall is to pick something rather simple (for example not a whole city scape)  for your first drawing.  The reason to start off slow is so you can get used to the types of comments/ reactions you will get.    

Good luck!  :D

Hallo Ferall!

I nearly missed you! But who would think, that an artist lurks behind a simple "Hi" in the heading!

I love your castles high in the air also very much! And Judy is right, the one she posted shows partly a true Uderza blue on the roofs! Though the airiness of the picture doesn't meet the description of the town... or the town doesn't meet the picture... (are my descriptions this bad? ;) ). And I think it is still a bit too much on the drawing side to fit entirely into the compendium style.

I'm looking forward to see more from you, especially something created for the Dream? :D
