Am I missing something here? I have no idea what that was about...
uhm, basically Scott is concerned that the style of Xandar's portraits would clash with the style of the ones we currently have. Admittedly, her coloring method is a bit ... flat, by comparison, but then we've only seen one of her images colored, in the current style she's working in.

I was just saying that I'm now confident that I'm good enough at cleanly hacking people's images to solve the problem. Ironically, it's actually not that hard; besides lack of skill at drawing, the greatest thing that inhibits most people from doing this is simply ... being afraid of messing it up.

You should make it that parts of someone die when he says it. See if he continues then ;)

Awesome you mean ! I can’t wait to see the coloured versions.

As for style I suppose Xandar can adapt her style to the Wesnoth line.

In the beginning (early Heroic Fantasy / R.E.Howard era) most (if not all) readers were male.

As for people going to war almost nude there are many historical examples : Celtic warriors among them.

Men though. And mainly because people didnt really start to wear underwear until making cloth from cotton started being cheap.

How about this: they wear as little as possible so they can look, "sexy". God help them though if it gets cold or someone decides to put an arrow through their perfactally tonned abbs.

One more request. I am also on the lookout for any type of art that would compliment the campaign, battle scenes, landsapes - whatever. If anyone has anything that they think would compliment this campaign, or even anything that relates to the northlands, just send it to me and i'll see if I can include it in the campaign. In particualr I am on the lookout for landscapes - moutains, lakes, glaciers, caves or anything else that might look like the Northlands.

I am ia agreement with taurus. Wesnoth players can handle a little bit of skin... Cant they? :)

*these are excellent (and I am extremely jealous), and though I understand the controversy over those two, they still rock!!!

*wish I could draw a tenth that well, and I'd be better than I am
* :more praises until I start mumbling: really excellent!

EDIT:about the controversy--good thing I sided conservative when drawing that druid, I suppose.

Great work, except the lower one looks like he's searching desperately for a toilet.

I don't really mind it. Besides, you don't usually use the legs in a portrait.

Here's my sketch of Hamel
There's not much detail, but I want to know if this is what you (Taurus) is looking for before I go on with adding details, inking, coloring and shading.

Explicit note: I'm generally not interested in critique for this.
