Hey, all, thanks for your notes. Looks like we got a large enough critical mass worth of people calling the StriderBird rider a female that he had to go and get a haircut and a slightly more square jawline. I hope he looks a little more masculine now?
Oregano, ElectroNico, ElGrozni, xric7, and Elrond - Thank you for your kind words and encouragement!
Cixi - I’m flattered that I’m your first post here. Thank you! I did try a lot of other colors when I was first doing my color comps, but honestly, the dark brown/grey I’m using just worked the best in the composition. Black can be considered somber, but I think it has other interpretations as well, but I’m sorry it makes you uncomfortable to look at it.
Emptyparenthesis - Thanks for your note. Nothing in the rules said it had to be an epic journey, just a journey (or at least the beginning of one.) I happen to think it feels like a larger journey than you do, because of the scale and depth of the environment and all of the gear on the StriderBird (bedroll, pack, etc.) but we’ll just have to agree to disagree.
Remy - Thanks for the post, you made some excellent points. It’s not in this post above, but I did go in and make a lot of changes to the arch-way. I think it reads a lot better now: more round, a more consistent color throughout… it looks good, I’m glad you pointed that one out.
As for the characters’ faces, let’s see how they look close-up (and with a bunch of new changes.)
As for the point abount the hill, I just reread your note and realize I misread it earlier. Now I see what you meant, and understand. I’ll have to take a look at that too. Thanks for commenting on it!
Thank that’s all for now. Keep them notes coming, I still have some time…
