Dec 7th 2010 8:21AM Sorry guys, couldn't stop myself, I love kids like this!
Um dude, hate to break it to you, but you're human too. It doesn't matter how many times you scream 'I am a proud orc shaman! LOK TAH OGAH!!!!!!!!', you're still a level 1 human by default. :D
Feels good huh?
Dec 6th 2010 6:05AM I'd be up for it, I just doubt we have time though, which is a shame because its a bang up awesome idea. But if it gets up and running count me in!
Also, definately have to do this again next year.

I have caused a ruckus, I wasn't aware I was doing things so wrong and winding people up so much.
And it’s not just spacegoats either, I seem to cause a fuss with the way I draw elves too, well, just the way I draw elf ears but still. X(
'See, when you get down to it, we artsy fartsy peeps take special liberties with our creations. Look at all of the comics here, we all interpret things in our own special ways.'
Boy you said it!
Everyone has their own take on the canon races in WoW, everyone has their own artistic style and personal tastes on what looks good or not. There's a lot of grey areas. And I hate it, really hate it, when people decide their way is right and everyone else is wrong, no proof required. And the conflicts usually start over such tiny tiny things too.
And with comics especially you have to take liberties because you're stretched for time both in terms of creating the art and getting the story down. You might simplify the designs or emphasis areas for extra expression because it makes life easier for you.
It just gets my goat (pun intended? o_O) that people can’t respect that and feel the need to tell other what to do and how to do it.
Dec 1st 2010 2:36PM I hate it when people whinge at artists for their interpretation of their own characters in their own comic.
I'm not changing the way I draw non-descript facial pixels for anyone...
Unless, of course, you want to pay me £100 a week then I'll glad do it how you want it done! :)
Are we looking at the same spacegoats, really? Because in-game the female's horns are a darker colour than the rest of their body though the shade seems to depends on skin colour. As I haven't got play time on my account I can't log in to get a decent screen shot of Kiandra and her black horns.
'The horns are covered with skin. They are not "bony", as in the surface being hard.' I can't seem to find any proof of this... 'Cus the models and official concept art says different.

Ahh, I see your logic is powered by wizard magic and rage.

Oct 27th 2010 12:45PM That's EXACTLY how I feel about this!
Thank you for summing it up so well.
Oct 27th 2010 12:42PM My opinion? This was pretty dull. Just another story about another forsaken that was the same as the last ten.
All I had to do was read the title and I already knew what it was about and how it would end.
It took a generic, overdone plot and didn't really bring anything new to the table.
Now, that's no crime, it was a good, solid machinima. The filming was subtle and shot beautifully but as a winner, nah, it was lacking ALOT. Plus the voice acting was making me giggle like a school girl. Was he trying to be serious? He sounded like a bad parody.
I was left feeling 'should I empathise with this guy? I think it wants me to but I'm really not caring much about him'.
I probably shouldn't be looking into this so deeply, but after all the criticism that got laid at the winners feet and wild praise this got, I had to speak up.
And do I think the other should have won? Maybe. I wasn't keen on either. But comparing the two is like comparing chalk and cheese. They have two wildly different approaches, styles, stories and genres. And to be honest, they both fall into the same generic, bland traps.
TBH a lot of the comments seem to come down 'my race is better than your race' whichever side of the fence you sit.
