The Arcadia Clan
A sketch of the dragon Armageddon from my story "Fjern's Folly", apparently just because Jessie felt like drawing him. Somehow he looks older and grumpier here. Perhaps some years have passed? Picture by Jessie.
Here we have Mort, from the story "The End of the World", which I am currently writing (very slowly). I only described Mort as a small, grey gargoyle with a beak, but Jessie found that, while she was drawing him, she couldn't imagine him without a full set of clothes. So while in my mind he has little more than a loin cloth, here he is fully dressed for the occasion. And pretty sullen too. Picture by Jessie.
This picture was a project of months by Beedoo!, and it was done just in time for an MGC-contest where it got a good number of creativity votes. It is an Arcadia Zodiac, a zodiac made up entirely of Arcadian characters, in which she clearly put a lot of effort. A full explanation is supplied with the picture. Picture by Beedoo!.
An unbearably cute drawn version of the little dragon sculpture Beedoo! sent me for christmas. A mini-Arno, if you will. It's even vegetarian! Perhaps the result of a little spill from Alpha's clone vat? Picture by Beedoo!.
After a long dry spell inspiration finally struck Star again. This is Sirius, sitting around naked, apparently "cause its just fun to sit around naked. ;)". She put a lot of effort into the starry background; the technique even had a name. She says, though, that the scan doesn't do it justice. Picture by Star.
And after Sirius, Star went ahead with Venn. She used some sort of inking technique that did not come out the way she wanted it, and she had "decided to stop before i messed it up even more". Well, I like it! Picture by Star.
After sending a card to Beedoo! involving damsels, dragons, handsome princes and white horses, these two pictures came back to me. No further explanation necessary. Pictures by Beedoo!.
This has something to do with a quote where I suggested poledancing as a viable dragon career option. Or so I am informed. Maybe it's best not to ask more. A computer generated image by Guandalug.
Image rendering suddenly became all the rage. Here I am petting BrooksBabe, who had inexplicably been turned into a tiger (as these things go). I do think we need to rethink our choice for the Station 8 carpet. Picture by Renee.
Jessie found out she could draw in MSN Messenger. And this is the result. Pictures by Jessie (and me, but that can't be helped).
Finally, someone who believes me. Part of Jessie's 2004 christmas card for me, sent in 2005. I wonder where I got a shirt that size. Picture by Jessie.
Part of Jessie's 2005 christmas card for me. Nooit and Keebler getting into the appropriate christmas spirit. Picture by Jessie.
When I visited Beedoo! in the summer of 2005, I joked that I was getting Arno-cooties all over her stuff. And here's one now! A christmas present from Beedoo!.
After sending me the christmas cootie, Beedoo! sent me two more images of a whole cootie book she has been illustrating. I have seen it since, but she has yet to ink the whole thing, and won't just scan it all and send it over. So this is the best I can do for now... How the Arno-Cooties conquered the dragon, by Beedoo!.
Shinga and Renee had decided to do something about the state of my mane. A female touch would make it so much better... This picture is titled "Elf Infestation". Picture by Shinga.
In the course my visit to Beedoo! in 2006, I wrote a story called 'Scale'. Once finished, I showed it to her. She responded by drawing this picture of one of the characters of this story. I find the antler horns interesting! Picture by Beedoo!.
For a little while I had Beedoo! give me drawing assignments. Not because I'm such a great artist (I'm neither great nor an artist), but it was something to put my mind to... One assignment was "Beedoo! sitting on Arno's nose." After I drew Beedoo! riding the nose like a rollercoaster, wings spread to block all vision, she sketched what she'd had in mind when she asked for it. Picture by Beedoo!.
For a large part of 2006 Station 8 Gargoyes Chat was under siege from spambots, filling up the place with advertising trash. Gorebash had given me the codes needed to ban people, and I spend much of my time logging and banning IP addresses from, presumably, spambot infested PC's. Unfortunately, many, many IP addresses had to be added each day, and my own estimate was that this sandbagging measure only countered about two thirds of all spam.
In the end Gorebash wrote a brilliant piece of anti-spam code that has so far managed to reject virtually all spam sent our way, which means that I can relax again. Which is a good thing, as this rendered image by Guandalug shows quite clearly just how dire the situation had become.
I know there were more images involved. I cannot seem to find them, though. Picture by Guandalug.
Anyone who has been around on the internet long enough knows what this picture is about, and those who don't won't get the joke anyway. A bit stale now, but it was funny back then. At least, I hope so, because I came up with it, and Shinga decided to draw it. We agreed she would give it to me once I had worked through 200 log files. I lost count of the number of months she sat on it, but here it is. Picture by Shinga.
