    -blush- Thanks you two. My daughter and I were playin' around with ideas for an avatar last night and when I saw the donut face, it just clicked!

    So it looks like we'll get our assignment this Saturday. -excited!-

    Should we start thinking about a theme/mood/style before then? I couldn't sleep last night so I had a few thoughts on theme that I don't think I've seen anyone use yet

    * Campy Sci-fi (think the original Star Trek, the Jetson's, the TV show of the old Lost in Space, etc)

    * Cheesy Japanime/Manga

    * 80's style cartooning (Thundercats, Voltron, Robotech, GI-Joe, Transformers, He-Man/She-Ra, etc)

    * Non-human embodiments (animals were done last round, but think Disney or Pixar... toys, cars, faeries, etc)

    * Historical eras (wide-open to interp here... Victorian England(non-steampunk!), Bastille-era France, Bolshavik (sp?) Russia, American colonial, etc)

    * More to come?

    I can post mini-boards if you want to see what I was thinking in a more visual way

    Feel free to add!!!

    I'm totally for the Campy Sci-Fi! Maybe we should do something a little cartoony this time? I'll take care of the OMGWTFBBQ?!, so no worries. I'm just not sure about my schedule right now. Saturday I will be cleaning my apartment. I'm moving out before the end of the month. I'm not sure if we should get another person in here so we have our bases covered?

    Tav and I were talking about breaking it down into pieces so it looks more streamlined. Here is what we were thinking (I'm adding a couple of ideas of my own here)

    * Work on the background first. So we know where to put the characters, and how to draw them to size.

    * Everyone draws 2 characters (cept Jazz, unless she wants to) One person redraws all the characters in their own style.

    * One person works on colours this time To make the piece more streamlined. I almost want to get out of doing inking altogether, what do you guys think?

    Here are ways we can break it down even more:

    * Background - Everyone works on the main idea. Only one person does the final drawing in their style. May be the person who does the people. The best way to do might be to have everyone draw different detailed aspects of a drawing (eg: One does rocks, the other trees, the third does the alien space ship. )

    * Characters Like I said before everyone does these separately and one person draws them all in their style. All characters will be divided right away. Everyone can work on costume ideas and whatnot.

    * Colouring (And inking) One person will do most of the colouring. Ways to break this up: One does inks if we want them. One person does flat colouring for everything. Another does the more detailed work. One does grey scale images (if we are shadowing that way) or basic shadowing . One does the finishing touches (extra highlights, more details, other stuff). Colourists will have to do both backgrounds and characters so I think it's best we split up duties.

    Did I miss anything?

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Oh, and I'm really liking the Campy Sci-Fi, or the Historical period. Both seem like good places we can get a whole lot of ideas about.

    Hmm, I'm up to have another person join us if they want. I have finals coming up in August, shouldn't be a problem at all. But you never know, they may throw something at me.

    Also, do you want to schedule a meeting?

    Hey Dani! Was hopin' you'd hop in here.

    I think a meeting would be splendid. We get our topics/chars tomorrow. Perhaps tomorrow night? I don't go back to work until next Friday (the 7th) and even the week after that is pretty light. So I'll have tons of time on my hands... for drawing!

    Also, I like the idea of doing a BG first. I've never tried that. In addition, if we only have to do 4 chars, I don't think we should recruit another person. I think the four of us really work well together and we should only snag another member if we reeeally need one.

    I'm... just... so.. excitered! :]

    Ok, enough of that. What times work for everyone else in terms of a meeting?

    Tav

    And here lies my big problem... I'm leaving Tuesday after this coming Tuesday! >_< If I'm to help at all, I need to do it NOW. I suggest we meet (even some of us in different combinations) to iron out a plan. I'll probably help with initial character concepts once we get a background going.

    Yes, I llike what Dani's planned out, btw! Hopefully we can better detail things like the environment, the angle at which characters are posing, the lighting, etc. Oh, and the colours, yes yes!

    We can probably be more vague about what this world is about. Being more vague might help us branch out with ideas, but still keep us pretty focused on an overall sense and mood about our piece!

    That's about all I can say right now. I'm not sure, but I might be around this evening, and I should be around tomorrow at some point. I have work every day next week, next Monday and Tuesday, and will be working on a report during this time. So I think evenings will have to work for me.

    Well, unfortunately I'm working every night until Weds and Thurs. But, I shall be around in the mornings, if someone happens to be on and I can discuss. I'll be back around 11, so if anyone is still on I'll catch up then.

    Ok... first things first. It looks like we've got 3 characters to design (for a total of 6 portraits, good/evil). I say we do a sunrise for the good designs... and a sunset for the evil. ;} Campy, I know, but since we can't do "campy sci-fi" anymore... campy should darn well be in there somewhere!

    As to characters... this is wide open. I think each of us should decide on an archetype (elven fighter, dwarf mage, orc paladin, etc) that we like and GO FOR IT, you too Jazz.

    Personally, I'm partial to elves but I can do just about anything. Also, I sent Dani some of my Forgotten Realms templates that I use when doing FR char design for campaigns. I don't want to post them here because of nudity, but I'll email or MSN them to you both, if you like, MJ and Jazz?

    Also, we can design/use any species we like, apparently. I think if we -do- create something different, it should be a mix or related to what's already there for us to work with. Draconians immediately spring to mind as they were a meld of dragon and human. Er, I think.

    So... who wants to do what species? It's been said things should be as random as possible. So how best to push the envelope, methinks?

    Take care all,
    Tav!!!

    Dang it, I missed you guys who were on MSN! >_<

    Anyway, I love that sunrise/sunset idea, Tav! Sunrise does give me a sense of hope and excitement. Sunset, fiery and passionate, well it gives me this feeling of...relaxation and possible lust, actually. But inverted, one of those creepy sunrises where the sky is red and there might be clouds around, waiting to billow, that too could work for villains. With a "lighter" sunset for heroes. Iunno!! I love both ideas now. >_<

    I'm up for anything as far as character race/type. However, that draconian idea sounds really cool! I favour the more humanistic types, minus elves and faeries and such. I guess I like types where there's possible bulk in their bodies!

    I love fighters, but I also like creepy types, or mysterious characters that you want to love you, but they won't. They just WON'T. O_O I think I'll need a little more direction, so it'll be great to chat with you guys!

    Tav, if you'd like to email me or chat via MSN regarding what you have, totally do it! I wanna seeeee!!

    Ooooh, so! In the end, I'd love to do something draconian in race, I think. I love claws and fangs, even itty-bitty ones. That's MY vote for now, or stone people. Eh! XD

    Iiiinteresting indeed! My bro and I used to find races in a DnD book to insult each other with. I think I used bugbear on him...or he used it on me, but I like to think I got the upper hand. XD

    I think for the ones I know about, they're really cool to think of! Ideas, ideas...
