Put On Your Warpaint by 6SeaCat9 Put On Your Warpaint by 6SeaCat9
I'm Gonna Change You

                   Then I'll Raise You
                           Like A Phoenix

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
A little piece inspired by the song "The Phoenix" by Fall Out Boy, one of my favorite groups. I've been wanting to do this picture for a long time but could never really figure out how I wanted to do it or who I was going to put in it. Garin and Jacques were going to be in it for sure, but I couldn't figure who else to place in, so I settled on a couple other members of the crew; (from left to right) Talak, Sean, and Sea Cat. I also had a tough time figuring out which colors of paint to put on everybody...

Speaking of the paint, you'll notice that Sea Cat's warpaint, since she's Irish, is done in a somewhat traditional Celtic style of warpaint, even featuring a similar blue that Celtic warriors would sometimes use. (Took me hours to figure out the right shade...)

Many thanks to my wonderful fiance, who helped me figure out a few neat features with Gimp to make this all turn out well, and a shout out to all of you who helped push me back into a creative streak! Thank you all so, so much!

Enjoy the picture~!

Sea Cat isn't the captain, Garin is. And no, they are not human. Sea Cat IS human, though she is part siren. Garin and the others are characters from Neopets.

Amy: Oh. But I thought Sea Cat was the captain of her own ship? Did you discontinue that story?

It was more of ficlet than an actual fic. But yes, she did captain her own ship at one point.

Thanks!

I plan to use it a lot this spring break. My mum will be gone and my dad is probably gonna be out at our cabin working, so I'll be home to look after the pets.

Bitchin' I love the color scheme with the shades of grey and the only colors being the war paint. ^^ It looks and feels like there's a story behind it.

And sweeet for Fall Out Boy. So glad they got back together.

This kind of reminded me of Redwall. :3 I need to update Measure. I think I have an idea of how too. :3

Yup. It'll mostly deal with the feast (and Patrick claiming he was poisoned by otters) and Garin having a Martin visit. I also want to jump to the vermin a few times to solidify the whole "bad guys in Mossflower" while showing just what they're up to.

Okay... THIS is awesome, and one of my FAVORITE songs ever! And I love seeing the crew puttin' on some serious war paint, but I can't help but feel like a missed opportunity here to see Victor in your style. But still great shot and you have to wonder who they're going up against too. :D

GAH I should have put Victor! :shakefist: Doh! Darn, now I feel like I missed an opportunity too!

Maybe I'll put him in my next picture. One of him and Betsy, maybe...!

:D Don't worry about it. But if there is another picture coming I will enjoy it either way. Just have fun with it, that's what is important.
