Lazy Afternoon Projects
I love making signatures, they’re a lot of fun. I don’t even have forums that I belong to really aside from the Eq2players one, but I still love creating signatures for my characters. So today while enjoying a nice lazy afternoon (the weather outside is horrid, it’s freezing rain and ice and all that other gross winter stuff that we happen to get here in Ottawa) I decided to create a signature for Ishbel.
I had a lot of fun making it, the tattoo on her neck is the symbol for Innoruuk which I managed to find on the EQ2 wikia, along with brief summaries of each deity. The signature itself is made up of four screen shots, plus three separate text layers. The backgrouns is one screen shot, and has not been manipulated in any way. It’s one of the windows inside of the mage tower in South Qeynos, which is ironic since Ishbel is Freeport aligned. The image of herself I used from a shot in the crafting instance earlier today, touched up her eyes (Ishbel has a strike of red that cuts through her left eye) and her hair, added the tatoo and lightened things up a little from the original. Wanted to keep it fairly simple, so I didn’t add a fancy boarder, the text is kept to a minimum as well. It probably took me two hours from start to finish when all was said and done, but that’s also taking into consideration the amount of time I spent rescuing the cat from pillow attacks (don’t ask) in the living room.
Her hair is a little more blurry then I’d have liked, especially that strand on the left side, but I can’t be bothered to fix it right now, maybe a project for another time when I decide to make another signature, it’s been a while since I’ve made any. I suppose I could stand to make a few more paper dolls as well for the EQ2player profiles. A few of mine are missing (though Ishbel does have one here). Nice to see profiles haven’t been updated in quite some time, it says she’s level 73, she’s actually 77.
In game today things are quiet. I’ve been harvesting (how exciting is that hmms?) for crafting supplies. Late last night I hit 30 carpenter, so it won’t be too long before I’ve caught up to the 35 carpenter on the closed account. As far as crafters go, that leaves me with:
- 80 Sage
- 80 Jeweler
- 80 Provisioner
- 63 Alchemist
- 60 Weaponsmith
- 30 Carpenter
- N/A Armorer
I haven’t started the armorer quite yet, that’ll be Ysandria’s profession once I get around to starting it. On another good note, the guild hit level 29 last night as I grinded some alchemy writs (woot!). A huge congratulations to Torrent Knights, since there are only 5 members (if that) to the guild, and no one has mains in the guild pretty much, I’m glad we’ve managed to come that far. I’d still like to at least hit 30 for that extra row of bank slots, as well as being able to buy some fancy new clothes from the status merchants, but we’ll get it when we get it.
Epics come out next week (supposedly) and everyone is mighty excited, can’t say I blame them. I won’t be getting mine any time soon, but I’m not sorry about that, the mad rush of folks working on them I’m sure would be enough to make me pause and wait anyhow.
Oh, and Tipa, if you’re reading this, fix your site! We’re (the readers) getting restless waiting for it to come back online, hope you got my email about it!
