  1. Amorte is correct. Those circles and squares are the first things they teach at art schools. Here is a link with all the information you need... great (free) Andrew Loomis books for learning how to draw. The're old books but I like them a lot.

It's just being lazy
  2. You know you've been on MD too much when... -You start saying 'Greetings' instead of 'hello' when you answer the phone. -When people say 'hi, how are you' you answer: 'I think war is upon us' -You go to church, count the people there and shout 'YES, I have more worshipers then you' -You change the name of your daughter into Marind. -Start collecting wooden boxes -You keep printouts of your inner magic documents in a safe at your bank -You start vacuuming your house every day because your afraid of dust. -When asked for a copy of your curric
  3. [quote name='wynken vanaril' post='16438' date='Sep 11 2008, 03:13 PM']You claim that reality is a function of the perception of the majority. That notion is actually a logical fallacy, argumentum ad populam.[/quote] actually even scientists are wondering about that too. One of the most amazing things is that we seem to be changing 'reality' just by observing. In quantum mechanics an electron can be both particle or wave. only by being observed the waveform collapses into a particle. The quantum world is full of 'magic', particles being at 2 places at the same time, disappearing at on
  4. Chewett, thank you for making that clear. The left brain right brain myth shows again how we can be fooled in another way. How many things that we believe to be true are in fact false? I'd think we'd be amazed if we knew. Another thing is that there is lots of 'reality' that we simply don't see... [u]The blind spot of the eyes[/u] It's the point where the optic nerve connects to the eye. that part doesn't give any signals to the brain and we actually don't see anything there, not even darkness. Our brain fills in the missing pieces... Look with your right eye at the cross (close
  5. I didn't speak of magic or make many arguments, just one, I'll repeat: I state that reality is an illusion, I don't mean it's a 'dream' or doesn't exist, just that what we think is reality is in fact not. Also, this is only one step in the point I'm trying to make. It's only purpose is to proof that what we see is not reality. Think of my statement as a statue, we start with a block of raw stone, and this post is my way of chiseling of a piece of stone. Don't throw it away yet because you cant see the statue yet. When it begins to take form, you can tel me if its garbage or beautiful. In
  6. The general opinion seems to be that reality is the collection of what we experience and see in the world 'outside' I state that reality is an illusion, I know that is difficult to understand, I would like to start with small steps to show you what I mean. So please just answer the questions. Note: When I say reality is an illusion, I don't mean it's a 'dream' or doesn't exist, just that what we think is reality is in fact not. Here is something I'd like you to try before answering. below are some optical illusions you can find on the Internet. But I'd like you to use them for something
  7. About the Dreams, they are called Lucid dreams. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucid_dream
  8. Yes, I thought of this since I read the book called "The incredible shrinking man" when I was a kid. Maybe because of that I shrink myself until the ant looks huge. I've also seen the "50 foot woman" and "inner space" I think writers use this a lot. (And Magic Duel people of course) What if I was...a Hero, a killer, an alien, how would i see the world, what would I do? As for the fist part... I used to do that, they call it empathy I believe. I was helping people, forgiving ... At the end most of them tried to take advantage of that (and did). Too much empathy is not good unless you k
  9. See what happens with short answers.. Please throw the other glove as well so I'll have a pair You jump to the conclusion here that your 'self' is your 'personality'. I didn't say throw your 'self' away. I refer to the next topic for that, the sound of an empty mind. So If we can't know reality because our personalities are part of it, then what? Then we have to throw away those layers of thought, memories and even individuality. Once you do that one can see reality. The second line is made to make you think about reality, if you understand the first line then the second will show y
  10. Letting my thoughts flow by is difficult enough. First the coherent thoughts dissolve into fractures of thoughts, then I try and let them flow by like a river, without paying attention to them. It is possible. If you can do that your ego can shatter into pieces and you can be enlightened or get very very scared. Or a mixture of both.
  11. Short it will be. Reality is what's left over if you trow away your personality. Personality is an illusion created by reality.
  12. I'm working on it Shot 7 bunnys to pose for me. (they wouldn't sit still)
  13. On a throne of bones Khalazdad sat, In his hands a brand new skull Just a little trouble that he had, But his fights are never dull
  14. Glad I'm already in the alliance and don't have to compete... Some high quality work there. Some creatures with horns, I liked drawing horns today. Tried a rabbit with a horn as well... not a nice sight. These are made faster, less detail and cleanup. I call the horse a Nihorn. Ni meaning 2 in Japanese. Sounds better then Duohorn The other one I call "Completely Insane Horned Killer With A Mace Fighting An Imaginary Clown" Dikra : I love the winged worrier. The wood of the shield looks so realistic. Amorte : I like that exorcist head, it has a nice expression. Awesome legs as well...
  15. Hmm, I can see that the job needs to remain because all the hard work that went into it... Perhaps keep the avatar and abilities, but change the name? Someone else puts on Wodins costume and continues his work. You can even call him Wodin II. And if a certain knator commander gets lost in the woods, another takes over. Knator Commander IS a position and not a name anyway. Same with a shade sentinel. I think the player that wants the role should keep his/her stats and creatures. + Avatar and special abilities that go with the job. As long as those important RPC characters have a Role Na
  16. I agree with Renavoid. It's also confusing the game and the game history. The character, Avatar, stats and personal pages should be kept in a 'record' or 'book' in the library. Someone could also write a biography of some sort to go with that. It would also be fun to be able to do that kind of research there, and contribute to the feeling of the game. Perhaps Your Name will be written in History when your gone.... Or someone could take the character for a walk on rare occasions.. without using chat.. Brrr a ghost. Nice idea for halloween.
  17. For MD shop. creature lock. A creature lock prevents you from sacrificing a creature by mistake. A moment of being absent minded and you could sacrifice that precious drachorn When activated a drop down list with your creatures appears where you can chose the creature to be locked. an unlock creature button appears when a locked creature is clicked inside a fenth press...
  18. Ok thanks, I'll make a new one of the centaur I don't know if we can use it? because it's longer than it's high. The next one is my first real attempt to make one in MD style. Please tell me your honest opinion because I'm not used to drawing this way. But it's quit exiting to learn how to draw different. Background layer is separate layer in photoshop
  19. Perrobotilo, We haven't invented batteries yet in this realm 3 more.. I'm trying to get more into the style of the game as well. Haven't nailed it quit yet... I think someone requested a man caught in roots... I thought it was such a nice idea and I couldn't get it out of my head so I had to draw it.
  20. Hmm, this was a difficult Lady, really a bad girl Calyx She also lost an eye during the process
  21. Perhaps adepts should get some kind of reward if they stay loyal for some time. A send gift button near their names? 1 gift per adept per month allowed? Gifts can be bought in MD shop, or can be a price in a quest or contest. Gift could be +1 attack, +1defense, or an increase in VE or VP, whatever Something small that doesn't create a major change but shows ones appreciation for his adepts. I don't like bugging people to become my adept. I'd feel better if i could offer them something So in fact I'm being selfish Or some kind of automatic bonus, I don't know, something.
  22. I like this idea, but I don't like spam, so... Solutions for abuse: 1 - charge 1 credit for a mass message 2 - Report abuse (by rich people, lol) in the forum 3 - Only allow 10 or less messages per month So many things can be done to prevent abuse...
  23. I have the Outgoing messages system from the MD shop. This shows mail not opened yet. Sometimes messages stay there as 'unopened', even if they have been opened I'm sure, because one of the messages was a riddle I'd solved, and others I know have been read. It used to be no big problem, but now with that 40 adepts rule, I find myself more and more writing messages and answering questions instead of playing the game. (well, it's part of the game but you know what I mean) So I can't thrust this system anymore. I don't know if anybody has reported this yet, so I thought you'd like to know.
  24. - A raven, didn't see Blackthorn had already made a raven-man - wizard storing heat... ? - wolf Bull King, I'm working on a warrior with a bullhead Calyx, I have no idea what a calyx is, well I found lots of different explanations (part of a flower, name of a nymph, something in our body... )
  25. Thoughts about the riddle... find my face behind the wall Find out his real identity, the one behind the mask, the one 'in' the shade as you rise so you should fall Death. body's fall (die) and our spirits rise this could mean 2 things 1- The shade once was alive 2 -One of us should die to find out who he is. I think option one is the best explanation Renevoid told me that Marind's father, Azazel became a shade himself, and he himself caused the demise of Marind. It's also possible he was an angien. A 'faceless' one.
