  • Oooooo, that would make thins easier, wouldn’t it? It would take me  a while to get use to it too. I have a limited amount of screen time, and digital art isn’t at the top of my list, so I haven’t really tried a lot.

    I’m pretty sure that every book character has their moments where they need someone else to stop them and point out, “hey, ma…[Read more]

  • Farley heard a sound. She heard running water and something else moving around. the air was cool, it whispered through her fur and brushed her whiskers. Where was she? Her den was small and earthy, not open and breezy.

    She started awake, her eyes snapping open. Yesterday’s memories came to her in a rush and she shivered, though not from the…[Read more]

    Thanks guys! I wanted to try something a little bit different, so we’ll see how this goes, XD

     

     

    Ok, I have another message from Oreo.

    Oreo:

    Hey, guys. Before I start, I just want to say I’m sorry. I’m… not going to be joining Story Embers. It’s not you guys, its just that…when I was on the Wingfeather Saga website,…[Read more]

    Ooooooo, that’s cool! So you can do a little normal, a little digital! I like the feel of the pencil too, it just feels more satisfying.

     

    Wow, thank you! I needed a lot of practice before I learned how to draw capes. I think I figured it out by seeing a picture of the mandalorian. XD

    Yea, It’s easier to add shadow with black and white, I think its also easier to erase (I do a lot of that, XD). I’ve kinda always loved to draw, but I’ve never done a series, usually I just sketch what ever comes to mind. I can post a pic if you want…*rifles through sketchbook* that’s A sketch of Gwen and Brin, I don’t have a lot of…[Read more]

  • Alright, here’s the new-and-improved Holly:

     

    Name: Holly

    Hair: golden blonde

    Eyes: Deep green

    Age: fifteen

    Build: average height, lean, confident posture

    Personality: Friendly, A little bit on the quiet side, tends to hide her emotions, confident, fierce when the time comes

    Strengths: quick, agile, can sing, and plays…[Read more]

  • Ok! Sounds like a plan!

    It’s really cool how you give your characters their own flowers! I’ve never thought of that, it seems like it would be really fun to draw. When I draw my characters I just draw black and white.

    The wall flew up and startled Brin who flew to my shoulder.

    On the other side of the wall stood a…[Read more]

  • @Everyone

    Would it be ok if I rewrote Holly? I would keep the main things the same, Like her pet, and talent.

  • Hmmmmmm, I found the poems, but not the characters. Oh well, I’ll work with what I got!🙂

  • I’m good with silent too, though I’m also fine if its Farley. Either one will be interesting to write!

  • The firs thing that popped into my mind was a giant twisted funhouse.We could take turns picking the next obstacles. That was just a random idea though. Do you have any more ideas?

     

     

    Gwendolyn

    “One point for each. One more strike and we’ll see who lives.” The castle announced.

    “WHAT?!” I roar. Who lives? One of us has to die?! This is…[Read more]

    I think it would be fun to have Ferran join Liorah and Gwen, but he’s your character so I’m ok with whatever. Your last posts was really cool!

     

     

     

    Gwendolyn

    Liorah blocked my blade and scrambled back again. Her eyes showed signs of the same weariness I felt. The cut on her side didn’t seem to slow her much, she did wince every now and…[Read more]

    Ooooooo! Great Idea guys! Maybe one of the characters can get caught by a human and taken to the place where they are starting to build the dam and the others rescue himher ? Or does anyone else have any more ideas?

  • *dusts forum off*

    Hi guys! I was wondering if anyone had the characters copied, and if they could paste them here? I can’t remember much about Holly’s personality, I feel like it would help if I could see what it was and maybe tweak it a little.

     

     

  • <b>Gwendolyn</b>

     

    Liorah raised her shield to block my strike, but my sword glanced of her shield and cut her side in spite of her efforts.

    “First point for Gwendolyn,” the castle announced “Two more points left.”

    Liorah winced and my eyes widened, exhilaration was replaced by guilt and a odd kind of fear. Two more blows would have to be deal…[Read more]

  • I can picture the difference in my head, I think because they’re using different weapons its making the fight a lot more interesting!

     

    Gwendolyn

     

    Liorah blocked my strike between her shield and sword, lunging closer. I yanked my sword out of the tangle of metal and tried to back up to get enough room to swing my sword, but Liorah kept…[Read more]

  • @rose-colored-fancy

    Alright! It. Is. On. XD, Fight scenes are my favorite

     

    Gwendolyn

     

    Liorah easily deflected my swipe, then brought her sword around in a slow arc at my thigh.

    Suddenly she leaned and drove it harder, so that I barely had time to jump out of the way.

    “What are you doing?!” I ask,

    “That wasn’t me!” Liorah exclaims,…[Read more]

  •  

    Ok, thank you! I have no clue why it decides to posts it regularly some days and not others. XD

     

    Gwendolyn

     

    Liorah backed away a few steps. My body was tense, my sword was up, and I had no desire at all to hurt her. She looked me up and down as if sizing me up, I followed her lead and glanced over her, trying to decide the best…[Read more]
