The crazy is all shakin' and bakin' tonight. I've been whimmed by fancy to get over my head in junk again and do another group picture for RE. Not only that, but I'm doing a group picture for, pretty much, the only other community I go to. Why? The two shall battle to the death
But, you may ask, didn't this just happen? Two years is actually a pretty long time, especially with the rotating door that is the on-line world. I think a bi-annual snapshot of who's-who is a pretty good capture of new comes, stick-toers, and passersby. Heck, do you know how many people dropped off in the time it took me to even finish the last one?
As a twist since the last time, I'm actually aiming for more human and real-life reps of the active (yes, active) members of both sides. They will, however, still be greatly over-the-top and freaked up as much as possible. Somehow that translates to more reflective of true-to-life in my oh-so-demented mind
Of course, since I just started with the turning of the new year, there ain't much there, yet. To start out, I was gonna raid the Christmas Contest for an initial pool of active patrons since, well, most elsewise things are a bit stagnant
I've gotten a good few things in mind for those initial few, too. Luckily, folks like IcyStorm and Akari Tenmeino have a pretty easily followed trail to pick up assorted details to add spice to the personas. Also changed is the style at which I can churn these out. Each individual is a flatly colored, easily recolored, movable, positionable, and all that good stuff so this one shouldn't span from Thanksgiving to summer
And... the rest is in progress. Any still-alives or additional tidbits for it would be good, why not? And non-forum members could just email me a request to be include, should they want, or appearance details to hit. Er, unless you happen to Ems. He's stuck as the nearly skeletal, grim, overlord figure of RE
The grand list of whose been deemed "active" in the RECommunity based on doin' stuff in the last three months (what a spread!):
Metal Cory, ClowBlast (IcyStorm), Akari Tenmeino, Blade, LugiaTrainer, Afiag, Zedd, Battalon127 (Dracosci/Digi_Trainer), Dragon Kirby, M Sanis, Skullkraken, Ice, Michael32, Valaga, Foshi, VinnyD (West), Lymfada, Inari, Pikang, SailorSassyStar, Draggy1234, Culex, Morton, Magaman, Honey Lover (Maple), Dark Bones, Queen Lucy, Empror707, and, of course, MintMan (Geirrek).
It puts peaches on your pizza!

Why am I wearing a planetfall tiara?
All of my alliterating names combined to be devoid of alliteration. Sensical.
And strange that all this comes out at the same time my drarwin' ventures do...
Other than that, you really shouldn't go by the Shadow Aura/Battle Board lists for recent activity. For some reason, blokes like Lymfnode (who actually has been less-than-active in very recent months) haven't fallen off of the map yet, which really brings up a good point: attack Lymfada, wait five days, and instantly win without having to do battle.
So where exactly is your KRR declaration? I've seen nothing thus far, and how exactly shall this battle be conducted? Hopefully it will be more epic than Reality's End vs ReDeck:
"Learn to read!"
If you weren't around back then, that is quite literally the entire war.

Yes, that is a Crown of Planet Fall. I figured, "Hey, why not?" It couldn't be, like, a bog wood crown since that's the spear's whole gimmick.
The reason Shadow Aura was used is since it came out within the last three months, which is the critera for activeness used on the RE side. The RR side is getting, like, December and up. I'm trimming as much fat as possible there!
And, you are correct, there is not a mirror post in the RR boards as I write this, chiefly due to the fact that no RR folks were featured. Don't wanna say, "Der, look here!" with nothing on their side.
I hope this war is more of an epic/cross promotion Like you said, its strange that I did it with RE:I happening unknowingly. It'd be great if some sort of spin-off comic/Sketch Battle fiasco could be spawned from it. Of course, I won't say that there... yet.
The new version of Shadow Aura was publicly released only recently, true, but it was out since 'round the Ides, and since another March is already impending, ya know how bad it is. Lymfada joined it in the summer, about the same time he evaporated. That's what we get for making him out of ice.
That's right -- he went on his own adventure. And that's the last we'll be using that joke for the year... okay, month.
Back on point, I could make a harvester, if needed, to get for realsies all recently active members, 'specially those with sites. Otherwise, unless someone actually drops by here and wishes to be included, all we have to go off of is a name and our stalking power -- which is immense, mind you!* creates a StalkerKit * I don't need the kit; I make and sell them!
Shameless plug! If you like Kirby, check out Dream Team, a Kirby IAS that -- despite not being on RE -- is still only written by Mints and Gobbo!

Feh, I'll bite. I'd hate to think what you guys could come up with otherwise, considering there aren't (to my knowledge) any pictures of me in any form online. Sadly, though, I don't have a lot of distinguishing features to capitalize on if you're going for a more true-to-life model. I guess I have... I dunno, larger-than-normal lips. Kind of a Mick Jagger thing, I suppose. Come to think of it, a paler, greasier, less wrinkled, Mick Jagger would be about as good baseline as I can think of. But with shorter hair. Also my eyes are slightly sunken, giving the impression of being low on sleep or slightly drugged. So, yeah, still Mick Jagger. Oh, and if the whole pale, freakishly skinny thing isn't enough, I'm also kind of a veiny sonuvabitch.
Need anything in terms of wardrobe?

Well, I dunno if ya bothered lookin' at the picture thus far, but we don't exactly look like that. I mean, we're friggin' twins in real life.
But this isn't real life; it's picture life. Instead of getting super-style into your specs, it probably should be more into your accessories to change you from a person to a character.
I think Gobbs just didn't want the Dragon-with-Abacus and Castle-Birds from the first group pic.

(12:01:02 AM) Kero Kato: I am so quoting that.
(12:01:09 AM) VinnyD: woot
(12:01:17 AM) Kero Kato: That part, too.

I like these cause despite not doing anything contributing to this community it makes me feel like a part of it. I mean unless talking on aim to members equals contribution, and in that case I demand royalties!
If we are going by accessories then I can't ignore the fact that i play guitar obsessively now, and i always wear my leather jacket. Always. Think of a situation where it would be extremely awkward to be wearing a leather jacket, then realize i've been in that situation wearing my leather jacket. Other notables are the shirt with Vince printed on the front i wear whenever i can and a pair of blues brother-ish sunglasses i wear more often than it is sunny. If you want more crazy things, which looking at your picture as it is now seems like you want more of a stand-offish thing, I'm a fan of brass knuckles.
My style's changed a lot since the 2006 pic i think.

I started writing this when I got home at about 4:30, and now it's about 9:30. All because I went to whip out the next lot and found out I scanned it wrong, thus meaning I had to do it alllll over again. Damn, that took longer than expected. Well, Vince, you're gonna be seal now to make up the time. Dem's easy to draw
On the plus side, there's a lot of freakin' folks in today's edition. Downside? Not gonna be any for a while since I will be unable to access the same scanner for a while. On the double plus side, no one cares
This on is a lot more focused on the RR side, tho'. And, well, it's a Kirby's Dream Land fan site, so, as you can imagine, the lot of them are gonna be round dough balls.
Ems is right on the Great Moolah. The funbag accessories are more for what things should be gankin' from reallife. Well, some folks and cases just had more to leach. I mean, of course myself would have the most to offer: bald, working as chemist, wear labcoat and goggles. Splice with a table spoon of crazy and dash of salt (for flavor!), and you gets a Mad Scientist.
Now, Vinno has the right idea. I got crazy good things planned for him... I think. Of course, thought and application rarely like to see eye-to-eye for me.
Damn, this thing is getting crowded! I'm gonna hafta make some toned down, detail shots of this thing to allow clear views of these blokes. Another day, tho'.

Sweet, it's me!
Didn't think I'd need to comment on mine much. Figured you had enough material/info to do whatever you want with me - in not that way! Perverts!
That little bit will go a long way, Z. I really need to get more REers done, particularly you and Batt, who put up in this topic oh-so long ago. Need to catch up...

hmm useful aspects of me for the picture.....
well I shoot a lot of guns, typically shotguns and rifles...but then I specialise in .45 colts and .357 Magnum revolvers (use it!)...ummm I wear black sunglasses almost all the time...um .... black leather jacket, gloves, jeans and bandana when motorcycle riding...
...you guys have (or had) myspace didnt you...? im on there if you must seek me...
Hi Super Nintendo Chalmers!
Jan 10, 2008 4:19
Oh, I forgot. I also wear reflective blue sunglasses when outside, though that might be over the top. C'mon, it's Australia, people! no sunglasses is just daft.

Just for the record, I do NOT wear sunglasses. Ever.

Man, I swear: guns, bikes, cool sunglasses. I forget that Down Under just has a higher standard of coolness than we tote topside. I'll be sure to try to capture that for the next installment.
Holy crap Gobbes, you're gonna need a bigger canvas.

Jan 12, 2008 2:37
Yeah, we are getting a little overwhelmed. Please tell me you have noticed the canvas getting slowly larger as the versions progressed, Batt?
Release that which was never caged.
Jan 12, 2008 2:52
yup Oz is the place to be.... because.... no one cares! about anything! it really is true.....
anywho, what program do you use to do your pics? like I get the impression that each character is on it's own cel or layer that you can move where you like (or maybe the kirbys or whatever have their own?)....
--end random musing
Hi Super Nintendo Chalmers!
Jan 12, 2008 12:24
Yeah, the pic is getting larger and totally Guyvier! and will soon be ripping open its chest to blast out devastating energy.
That, or I'm going to just make it incredibly large in the final version and just shrink down the previews more. That way, it won't be quite so cramped. Heck, I'll probably just spit out one of all the RE folks for clarity. I could do the same for the other side, but, c'mon, the two forces combined is just the other side.
But, yes, Blado-rado, they are all generated on separate moving layers. After being inked and scanned, they get ported into GIMP 2.0 and are slid around like tectonic plates. And we all know what happens on tec-plates, stuff grows! * plants a virtual GroupPicturePicture2008 tree *
