I am game for whatever style you would prefer, are they to look like the spirits they are (like in the castle?) or should they be solid as they were?

I'm thinking since none of the preservers are dead that maybe it might have to take place in the palace and the preserver can maybe be seeing spirits? I suppose we can decide to make them as solid as we want though.

Oh so the go-back I choose would probably not be from a preserver's wrap but perhaps a watcher, I can do solid as you'd like, as for the scene, whatever is laid out I can work with.

Not an easy task to make a layout for this. My first idea was to give it a chronical layout. For example start with the High Ones palace in the background on the right and make Kaslen have some kind of contact with Voll who would be in front of Blue Mountain, etc...

I think I'd like to change my character to Blackfell. Unless another character needs to play with a dorky wolf, then it'd be Warfrost.

Composition-wise this one is hard! Do we want something dynamic or static? The Beloved Dead plate Wendy did was fairly static, but it might be fun to have something more akin to Windriders Calendar cover in 2007.

Hell-o fellow tribesters !  I may need a FanClub Shoutout here. . .   (sorta like Cash Cab with no money)

Please  -  -   Where can I find an easy listing for the beloved dead Wavedancers ?    With the Forum down I just do not know where to start.  I am open to  ANY  character, Maggie, just stumped about "where" to go too choose.

Thanx !

Tah -Marien, I'd recommend Elfquest.com official who's who page. The forum is not active anymore, but all data is still there and search function is still working, too.

I'll cautiously raise my hand for also providing the background for the December page..  If someone else really wants to do it, I'll step down, if we find nobody else I'll do it.

-   - I tried TREEFOX.  -   -   

    But the page does not have images of Wavedancers  - and only names of Recent ones.   [I think]    So I cannot even search in a  'different'  window for a name I do Not have.    (There is no search window or bar on these pages at all)    GOLLY !      ~If I have to be signed IN - there is a problem - I cannot figure out most computer stuff and did not even  try to resign IN when the site Rebooted into a different format in March 2015.~

So where are images of past Wavedancers -  because Surge just does not do it for me - and he is all I have seen as Canon and now dead ? 

So then -  I googled   " images of wendy pini wavedancers".   These images were beautiful and varied of many things, but did not give me, just what I needed.


I. Am. Stumped.     (meep!)  Help.

That makes the most sense to me.
Though it may be weird to have a troll/wolf/human there, they might be coming in from the sides, checking things out?

I can think of 3 dead trolls; Guttlekraw, Greymung, and Grutch (Two-Edge's dad, you can see him in Blood of ten bugs). Does anyone know of any others?

Tah -Marien, I hope this can help you :
http://elfquest.com/wavedancers/
Here you can also find the dead Wavedancers like Haze and Farbiger.
Even if there are no pictures once you have the name of the Wavedancer you can Google Wavedancers Farbright and you will get a couple of pictures of her https://www.google.de/search?q=wavedancers+farbright&client=ms-android-tmobile-de&prmd=misvn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAmoVChMItYqD7ZOTyAIVCdQaCh04uASk#tbm=isch&q=wavedancers+farbright

Let me know if you need more help.

I plan on doing Vaya in any format you feel like the month should be done in.

I was thinking, what if the preserver was using the Palace to envision something. Like when Suntop (yes I will always call him that) shows everyone Brill. Maybe it could be seeing the perfect tribe? One that consists of humans, elves, wolves...etc.

I could squeeze out anything if needed.

Perhaps the background can be the map of abode??

I like the idea of the Preserver watching a vision of the perfect tribe. If needed, I'd be willing to provide the background for that.

It seems, there are enough volunteers here already, but if anything is needed, just let me know ;)

Ok super quick sketch just to get things rolling.

Preserver looking at the Scrolls with the characters interacting in pairs. IMO it would be neat to have the characters interacting, but that'd probably require a fair bit of communication between the artists so that might add an element of risk

Ah, thank you so much for sketching something out. I think they should totally interact, I think we can manage it. :D

What if they were all working together on something? Like starting a fire or building a shelter, something simple. Then they can all be interacting but still kind of independent and we can just assign what part of the task each character is focused on and which characters may be directly interacting with each other?

I like the use of the scrolls here. :)

I'm thinking of doing Greymung, I think he'd rather give out orders than actually do something, haha.
He might fit well in the back, pointing at something while talking..?

I hope we can still get this done. I really like Wildfire's idea. This week I will try to come with a fast sketch of a possible ideal home for all tribes that they could be working on.

Ok, I think we need to get the ball rolling here. We have a good base for our idea, so let's start drawing the characters.

I think we should work kind of one at a time, so who would like to go first? I'm hoping that those of us who work digitally can use a PNG format with a transparent background and then those of you who use traditional mediums just make a strong outline on your character and a white background so I can cut and paste.

Let's not worry about a background now, as we've decided this is kind of a vision type thing, I can figure out the background last.

So let's have someone draw their character first and the then next person can take a look at the first drawing and have their character interacting and so on.

It's just getting late, I want to send the submissions to Richard at the end of the month if possible and I am still missing two pieces, which will need to be reassigned and I have to work on December as well as the cover and formatting the calendar for the site.  ;)
