Hi all.<P>I've never posted here before, but I'm an avid Avalon follower and someone who wants to learn to draw better (for reasons of cartooning, no less).<P>Anyway, the upshot of all that being I made this little drawing based on a line Ceilidh said way back during the New Years Eve party. (I know the coloring is atrocious, but I'd still like comments if you care to give them.)<P><img src="http://home.yosemite.net/~newberry/atmost.jpg" width="600" height="455"><P>Oh yeah, it's supposed to be Ceilidh and Joe, if you can't tell. :-P<P>Thanks,
-David<p>[This message has been edited by Davie daWeird (edited 04-29-2001).]

I <I>can</I> tell who's who, and I like it.<P>Very much, in fact.<P>And aside from Joe's eyes (the bright blue may be a little too distracting), the colouring is fine -- better than I could do, anyway. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>And welcome to the forum, davie daWeird; that was a wonderful entrance... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/cool.gif"><P>------------------

I think it's a very sweet drawing. The only thing that confused me was the arms. I thought that arm coming from Ceilidh's hair was Joe's at first, but then I realized that it couldn't be...<P>It should be noted that I am easily confused. Don't worry about your drawings, I'm one of those people who massacre stick figures.

Nice picture. I wish I could draw these people. I can draw bizzare little cat-like creatures, but it's rarely the same...<P>------------------

Thanks for all the comments.<P>Mmmm, his eyes are a tad much. Looking back, I noticed that none of the characters seem to have eye colors, so maybe it would be left without.<P>As for Ceilidh's arm... it is kindof hard to see, at first, where her arm is coming from. That's the main reason I decided to color the picture, to help the clarity. The problem with her shirt sleave is hard to deal with. She usually rolls up her sleaves, so my thinking was that with her arm on the left it was rolled up below where we see it, and on the right the place where it's rolled up is hidden by her hair. I shouldn't have to justify my drawings, I know, but that's what was going through my mind. I think it might help if I showed the part of the sleave that was rolled up on the arm on the left.<P>And as a final note: never underestimate the power of cat-like creatures.<P>I'm quite the newbie too. This will be my second post on this forum, but I think this is the same message system that SinFest uses. I ran away from their message board. Scary, scary people. Cool comic, though.<P>Maybe I'll try fiddling with the picture a little more when I have time. It was my first attempt to draw Joe in quite a while, and really my first attempt to draw Ceilidh and he together. I'm glad it went over well. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>Thanks for the welcome.<P>Peace,
-David

very cute!....I did notice one nuance, Ceilidh has only one sleeve on her shirt..... but otherwise I like it!<P>And welcome Mr daWeird to our "ever-so-normal" forum <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>------------------

Cooooooooool! I definitely like it!
My only critism is that Joe looks a bit freaked out with his wide open eyes. But considering his current stance on his relationship with Ceilidh, maybe that's apropriate. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"> <P>Oh, and welcome to the board!<p>[This message has been edited by Kaoru (edited 04-30-2001).]

I think what you really nned to do is get <i>me</i> a life. Then you could surpass me.<P>As for the msgboard systems, I figured as much. I just hadn't used this system for a while so it came as somewhat of a surprise when I had 16 messages already.
