A place to discuss deshive.com, the central hub for Dan Shive's (author of El Goonish Shive) projects. It has blogs, too! ...but no pool table :(

I may not have art galleries coded yet, but deshive.com's got it's first piece of non-avatar artwork up nonetheless!

Nice Elf Dan. I see the game is still on your mind.

Anyway, it will be good to see the new art gallery. But a game by Dan is either something to fear, or be very happy about.

I opt for being very happy about it. But then again, I think that the Ifreet-thingy looks cool.

Indeed, it's good, and it's always good to experiment with art styles. I need to continue working on my own art abilities, as I still consider them to be far below what I want them to be, but that's another subject.

Anyway, I think an RPG would be interesting, and if it encompassed EGS somehow it'd be even better, heh.

I'm sorry, but it had to be done.

Good picture, although personally I'm not a huge fan of that style (I prefer the EGS style... mainly, I think, simply because of the shading).

It's a supernatural creature born of elemental fire, also spelled ifrit and afrit. They're one of the races of djinn mentioned in the Qur'an and in Arabic mythology. They are said to be temperamental and difficult to deal with; even if they can be bound to a human's service, they will twist their master's orders maliciously whenever possible.

More on them here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ifrit
"The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not sufficient warrant."
