No, I wasn't talking about the floors. The floors look great. I just meant I think the tavern would look better if the counter top were a different color, to break up the brown some.


Just texturing the bartop would be fine by me, rather than a new color altogether. Draygans Hollow pulls off full brown rather well.

Color can come from wall decorations, rugs, plants (like the ones in the fence I put up).

We're also not Draygan's Hollow, neither should we wish to mimic them. I would be in favor of a differently shaded countertop, perhaps wood with a bit of wax coating, making it look shinier with yellow undertones.

The patching is beautiful. Here's my problem: I understand that the tavern is made out of the wood of a ship, but it's just too much brown. Even with the splashes of color from other things.


Ships, even old ones, had some glass, right? No reason a little glass here and there couldn't break up the brown monotony. Maybe on the sides of the bar counter, for decoration?

You guys are making this far more complex than it needs be, we don't need everything portrayed down to the very last pixel how it might be based on some obscure little detail. Making the patcher redo items over and over is a good way to frustrate said patcher, and so long as it just looks good we should go with whatever is best visually. :p

Every moment the artist is redoing a random object for the tenth time is a moment they could've best spent finishing a room and moving on to the next.

How do you feel about this how the wall color affects the tavern? I'm trying to offset all the brown you guys were complaining about. I will not render the walls or add texture until I get feedback.

Without texture it's kinda garish, but I'm sure a bit of texturing and some windows will make it okey-dokey. <3

Sirum Hest: *peeps*
kelly marieeee: Hey, I'm going to email you what I have and give xxt a partial refund
kelly marieeee: My comp has died
kelly marieeee: Ill get something to retrieve the file with tomorrow
Sirum Hest: o_o
Sirum Hest: Your comp died? You lost everything on it?
kelly marieeee: What did I just type?
Sirum Hest: Ack, sorry. x3 I just opened the window and skimmed down to the second line
Sirum Hest: That means our commission is cancelled then, though, I'm assuming?
kelly marieeee: Well, I'm not sure what other conclusions you could draw from what I've told you.
kelly marieeee: I mean, what am I going to patch with?
Sirum Hest: I was just making sure.


After three months we've.. got a half-finished tavern, it seems like, and our commission is cancelled. x_o

This is made even worse by ArtSpace having a distinctive style, so we'll probably not be able to use the patches at all, because the other stuff in our patch won't mesh with the items she has made for us. And if we do use it, we'll have a lot of empty, open areas in the tavern.

Mngh.

At the risk of sounding emo:

"..."

I do hope that her computer gets better, or is replaced, but this is not something that I'm very happy about at all.

kelly marieeee: it works again
kelly marieeee: YAY
kelly marieeee: I'm going to finish this fireplace and give this back to you RIGHT now xDD
Sirum Hest: Wait.
Sirum Hest: It works? Surprised
kelly marieeee: Yeah!
kelly marieeee: I don't know what happened.
Sirum Hest: So you don't have to cancel the commission? ^_^
kelly marieeee: Maybe it was overheating
kelly marieeee: XD!
kelly marieeee: Nope. I can finish the tavern for you.
Sirum Hest: Keep the patches then, I can't use it until it's all finished. Razz
Sirum Hest: Your style is too unique for it to work with the normal stuff
kelly marieeee: Nono, the deal is you get the tavern when it's done.
kelly marieeee: We do room by room.
Sirum Hest: Oh, wait.
Sirum Hest: You mean the fireplace is the last thing left to do.
kelly marieeee: yep
Sirum Hest: *squeals*
kelly marieeee: What a damn roller-coaster ride.


Nevermind. ;D

I do beg pardon for the computer troubles. Trust me, it isn't something I'm very pleased about either. Smile

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to step out now. Now my wacom doesn't want to work. I've had to cancel all commissions, this one included. You wan work out arrangements with Xxy on what to do from here, I've contacted him as well.

Please accept my apologies, and remember: it's never pleasant for the person experiencing computer troubles, either. Thank you all for the opportunity to work with you.

Ansteorra Kingdom still has $100USD to spend on what it requires. I'll eb around a bit more this coming Monday (US Sunday) and into the following week to check in on any details or ideas you might have for it.

I hope things get better for you, Artspace *hugs*

I'd like to call a meeting on this subject for Saturday evening, if it's possible. Check the new thread.
