This, by the way, is a very cool depiction of your characters, and pretty much exactly how I imagined them.
Reading the comments reminds me of just how subjective stories are to people. We can all read the same character description and get different images in our heads of the players. To me it makes sharing a story and world you love with another who shares your passion interesting.
Just wondering have you ever commissioned a drawing of one of your creations and when you saw how it was executed considered changing your description to match the art? I had Psitt draw my character and forgot to mention the horns, now I'm not sure if I want to say this is him as a teenager before they showed up or change him to reflect the drawing. I watched her do it live and just love her take on him enough to think about it.
I actually commissioned Sorrel (who ended up doing things for free because she is awesome) to sketch out the initial concept art based my general description, and the first take on Hal was actually much more avian than the final design. I don't think I've ever posted the early concept art. It was a great exercise because it helped me figure out "yes I like this aspect" and "no, let's change this aspect". Her final version ended up being this after we got past the initial sketches: kafelnikov.deviantart.com/art/…
Then my commission slot for David Lillie came around and he produced this which essentially became the "canon" design for Hal, and pretty close to exactly what I had envisioned when I wrote Chapter 1: kafelnikov.deviantart.com/art/…
Then I started commissioning different people for different Chapters, and their takes all varied a little from one another. Twi draws Hal with a more elongated "alligator" type snout compared to Sorrel's blunter dinosaur snout. Byakurai and Switchblade are somewhere in-between. It's been really great to see all the different takes.
Who was it who did artwork for you? I'm always interested in finding new artists to do artwork for my story.
Twi's work is looking good as ever...how is the bolk I wonder? Haven't heard from him in quite some time...
Got to say though, this image of Marcus is 'completely' different to how I pictured him in the story; Even if it was never said, I always pictured him with a beard and wearing robes as suppose to classy suits Also, I thought his three tipped tail was more compressed, so I thought it looked more akin to a whip, rather than having a hydra look. What a difference in perspectives eh?
Really looking forward to reading more of this story Kaf...cause it is true indeed...it must be told -_^
Yeah, it's always interesting to hear and see what other people's interpretations of the characters are. Twi's interpretation of the characters is different from my interpretation of the characters, which is different from yours. I think you're the first person to say Marcus should have a beard, but that's alright
I really appreciate your support Hazard.
