  1. :what: this has been revived?
  2. Thanks for the edit, but comparing them I like the first one. Sorry for that extra work and thank you very much soknife. :) (on an unrelated not, I miss your Rachel servant sprite as your ava)
  3. That fro :3
  4. Omg I love it. I just have too little adjustments. can you switch the lyn and the text. I don't know my left from my right and I'm an idiot. Also can you make the quote larger and add a dash if you can next to Командир Лиари? besides those two nitpicking things, it's absolutely awesome.(and I blame myself for not knowing my directions on one of them xD) :big_smile:
  5. oh :ouch: this is why I shouldn't try to think things through so late at night. I'd like that the russian phrase and sign to be on the right of the commander lyn with him still being on the far left of the sig.
  6. Tashigi you're amazing. I did the stuff you said with the tera client and everything is so much smoother..... also I feel like I need to find a leveling partner for my archer. I made one yesterday because i like the high elf female females renders ;3 I also have way too many alts at this point. :cold: leveling a warrior in my free goofing off time on Basilisk crag and I know now why people love playing them. Their not my favorite, but they are interesting to say the least. what are people's thoughts on the new warrior block skill? obvious as speculation :3
  7. its the little things that make your day. The bunny one is cute, but that fuzzball tail seems huge XD
  8. I has a request :3 sig Format:static and opaque size: Max resources: are attached. I don't know which one would be better to use for you, so I included both sizes :embarrassed: style: I wanted the commander lyn to be on the far left of the sig, with this "я правлю вашей души" in a bright color to his left signed by Командир Лиари. the signature would be smaller then the quote of course. I was thinking the back ground could be a simple contrasting color to the letter (maybe a light blue green or an one similar to the image?) i put a preview of the fonts in the images, but if you need better access to them I put a zip file. And finally, I guess I want it to kind of have that overall punk anarchist vibe like this. which the image titled broken is a reference/inspiration point to what I was thinking of. though I'd prefer the sig to be more polished than that reference I think that's everything you asked for. o.o I hope it makes sense :gloomy: lenteratrentadue.zip
  9. so many goood concept arts :3
  10. :cold: guess my comment wasn't as clever as I thought, lol. I knew what it was when you said gun models...............................i just didn't want to guess it. i was trying to be like genjimaru :cry:
  11. lol. gun models as a pun for loli gun girls? guns who model?
  12. Based on the lighting is it Jormungand?
  13. whenever you guys talk computer stuff I want to check if mine is ok. But i'm so stupid with technology, I'm afraid something would go wrong O.O
  14. Yes. :embarrassed:
  15. :cold: Well I assumed everyone was in Beta for guildwars, but I guess I'll post some more...
