Handbook WIPs

Post  Artiste Pencil on Fri Jul 27, 2012 6:34 pm

Hey everyone, I'll put up an introductory post in the "Introduce yourself!" thread sometime sooner or later. Short version though: Friend of Staric, like to draw, been stalking this project

I've been making some rough drafts of the layout for the handbook but haven't had much time to do a lot of it, but I still have been able to make at least something. So this thread will show some work in progress that I've been up to. Hopefully you all will enjoy my work!


The DM's letter at the beginning [will change the font to something more readable and possibly add in a quill, might change background color to blue]


The front cover WIP I'm making it similar to the stained glass shown during season 2's opening episodes. Colors glowing in the back subject to change]

If you don't mind a mote- maybe have the colors in the bottom picture represent the 4 original player characters?

Thak you!

Sure I can color it to fit them.
It was 4 original characters? I remember seeing 5 in various pictures...

Yeah. Soaring Song, Inky Quills, Alcazar, and Heat Wave were the four original players. Stylus (The black and purple pony you see in the image on the top on the forums) is an NPP- Non-player pony- that joined them session two.

The group adopted Stylus, an NPC, into their party drawings. They, particularly Inky Quills, really like her.

[laughs] Ah, that makes sense now. Alrighty then, I'll see to it that the stained glass will represent the original pony players!

Whatever looks purty. If you can get it in their colors (see top of page, ignore the black mare as that's stylus) and it still looks great, that'd be awesome.

After much lunching and partying, I decided I should finish it.

Complete! Harmonized the colors as best I could and found some fonts that were free for use. Hope you guys enjoy.

Really, not much I can say that isn't repeating what's already been said... so I guess I'll have to play the part of the echo. That looks FANTASTIC! I can't imagine what the rest of it will look like!

I actually do have something in my eye right now, but I'd be tearing up right now even if I didn't.
