Pretty Pictures
« on: May 10, 2008, 09:04:22 PM »
A tip of the hat to the artist who did the character portraits. They are each very much as how I would have pictured the characters. I especially love the expression of Harold in his portrait.

But I do have a question: I have seen about four pieces of art depicting Silus, and in each one he's wearing a black vest and red shirt, but I can't for the life of me find where the description of his clothes are in the narrative. Can someone point me in the right direction?
I am the game, and I want to play

Well, the contestants contacted the artist with descriptions, some of which just never really made it into story posts. I had access to the descriptions as well, so that's why my art also included the black vest and red shirt. And I'm guessing other people saw the other art and went off that. Or maybe poked the contestants nicely for a description. I dunno.

And yes, Terri/Storm did a wonderful job on the portraits! And I might add she also stepped in on short notice, since our other artist kind of, er, went MIA. She did them all so quickly! Unfortunately the last few were completed around the same time the site was down, so I didn't have a website to display them on! But now, here they are finally. ^^

Must be my computer or my ineptness at computers.  There are no pictures shown of the characters when I access that part of the site.

Cairn, when you're on the homepage, you click on the 'characters' link and then click on the character names to get a picture of each and their application.

Yeah, I should probably put a note about that on the contestant page...

Yeah, discovered that when I went to read a few.  My bad.

Well, I'm glad the audience and such approve of the pictures. 'Twas a pleasure and now my silly little cartoon critters get to go down in ROC survivor game history along with the likes of Snitter, Ainsley Seago, and Kobb.=) I just hope the story starts up again soon! *goes off to vote*
