But what we really want to know is...how many people in the PC Bang are playing Starcraft?
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

HA! I can't believe you know that!

I'm here agin, obviously.

So, including myself, maybe about 4. (Yes, I am hoooked ot the Starcraft, ever since I was 7. Ah! Have you seen the trailers for the second one? SWEEEET!...>.>)

Anywho, yea. 4. Most people play Lineage or other Korean games. Someone next to me is actually playing a dancing game.

oO? Wtf?

((Tokyopop RSOM 7 is OVER! YAY! Now I can start reading stuff for RSOM 8! Shweet!~!!! Manga Summer...unite?))

For the women, I actually went a little bit earlier, choosing more medieval style gowns.  Corsets are overused in fiction of this style, and I was feeling bugged by them, so I stayed away.  Gowns with lots of petticoats to make them flare at the skirt, then tight through the waist and bust, often with ornate sleeves.  Not full blown, overdone renaissance sleeves mind you.

That almost sounds to me more like the evening gowns of the cival war times.  They pulled the farthingale (hoop skirt) from the ren times, but the sleeves were a lot more relaxed.  Vary little medieval in the outfits since that style was more of an under dress which was worn over long periods of times without being washed or taken off, and an over dress which was changed more oftan, and taken off while sleeping.  Ren dresses are a bit like it, but as you said there were the big sleeves, as well as bumrolls to make the hips look big (which I think was the insperation for the big hoops for the hips during the 18th century and french revolution.)

Anywho, I was going to ask what type of clothing you were thinking of with Elantris and Warbreaker?

Sweet!  Thank you.  I'm trying to make all of the characters in the sims.

(And sorry about my comments.  I'm realizing after re-reading that they sound really impertinent.  *blush cringe*)

I thought your sketches of Vin were rather amazing, and while i don't know much about art, I might suggest that kelsier's feet seem rather blockish, however i don't want to be insulting, and you can ignore this comment if you wish.  It's just something that didn't work for me personally.  I would really like to see those ones that were suggestd by EUOL, he picked some good moment to see depicted.

Thanks for keeping this thread alive, adn thanks for your comments, although some of them weren't directeed at myself.

Here's what's going on:

I will depict those scenes soon, but I don't have a scanner available to me at the moment, but I'm trying. I take korean classes for four hours in the morning, teach english, and then go to my illistration and 3d max classes for 3 hours at night, and then I have about 1 and a half hours of homework to do. ALSO, I'm entering the RSOM 8 contest, but I forget if you can submit more than one entry.

Anywho, trying to decide between some paintballing pirates, out of the ordinary fairies and purple dragon poems, a radio man and the unusual relationship between tibby the cat and a brownie, finding newton, or perhaps something from the old polina...as my friend likes to say.

So, I'll try to post something soon. Can't wait till I get back home so I can actually start using the stuff i'm learning.

P.S. I do think that first sketch of Kelsier sucks...so don't worry about insulting me.

Lol.  Tell me about it.  I lived in Korea for a while.

Glad to hear you'll be there!  The date in LA is going to be at the Torrance Borders, one of my favorite stores in the area.

Shwoot, 16 more days. I apologize, this has become more of a half-assed blog over the summer, but I promise it will get better. Just registered for my 4 art classes, rather exciting for me, and Chinese. Sweeet.

I can't wait 'till October.

You lived in Korea?
When....Why...oO?

-weirded out-
-grins-
-throws candy-

I kinda wish I was going to be here for the release of Starcraft II, it looks so beautiful, and everything here in Korea will be on holiday for at least a month. -laughs-

Oh, and wish me luck, finally stylized my charries for my manga entry, one I get back to the US, you'll see a lot of that on my deviant. And more fanart. Yay for fanart!

This is just my way of saying thank you, Brandon. Mistborn was one of the best novels I've read in a long while. I'm one my way out the door to pick up No.2, but first I wanted to give you this, and I figured this was the best place to do it.

You're officially the first author to inspire me to do fanart.  Now I'll never hear the end of it from the Potter-heads.

Thanks!   ^.^;;  It's not great, but i rather like it... it was supposed to be the scene where she's fighting Shan at the ball+ cloak  ((Hence the undies)) but now it appears to better suit the first battle in WoA.

There's also a colored pencil version here: http://xpolarisx.deviantart.com/art/Mist-born-62924213

As my brother would say, "That's a slice of nice!"  ;D  Thanks for sharing with all of us, Polaris, not just EUOL (Brandon)!

The colored pencil is cool too. I think I like it better because it makes Vin less cartoony. Both are nice, though.

Hey, can I use it as a screen saver??
