Re: Thoughts

I've read them, and you're right about the descriptions. I can easily see the events unfolding as I read :)

I had intended to ask if you ever got the illustration for "unfolding wings" done, but it sounds like you haven't. One thing I've never been clear on is whether these poems take place in China, Japan, or some mixed fantasy world...

Yay! Then I've done my job right.

So far, the only illustrations are from djinni's Free Icon Days. I think the scene in "unfolding wings" would suit your style well, if you feel like exploring it.

The setting is a mixed fantasy world. It draws inspiration primarily from Chinese and Japanese cultures, with a few bits from other cultures in that part of the world. So it's Asian inspired fantasy, the way most fantasy is loosely patterned after European cultures. *ponder* And judging from the scenery and character action, they're probably on the mainland rather than an island, although they're within reach of a coast. We've seen mountains and rivers already. It seems to be an old and stable culture.
