Enjoy a visit ... feel free to add something of your own. A friendly kick of my lazy muse is welcome. Wink If you want to give me an extra push come back as a bauble head - in case you are in the club already - to spread the Holiday feeling ... otherwise I'll make you one! ^^

... when the twins were two boys. Smile Cutter with his sons Quickblade and Starjumper and lovely Morninglight.

Advent time is coming. Tomorrow the first calendar window will open. It's time to gather ... lurk, comment, contribute - each way and everyone is welcome.   santa
The calendar will show pictures, characters and scenes from The Final Quest every day while the specials, dropped randomly in the thread, give a glimpse on the very beginnings of EQ ... I'm going for contrasts!  rendeer  Brand new art and nostalgia.

Welcome, G0lden cheers It's great to have you back as a visitor ... and with your christmassy "face". santa I hope you will enjoy the calendar like you did the years before.

Sorry for being late  ... I promise that a door will open every day!


Another extra treat, another early drawing of a well known character ...



The High One ~ Alabaster and Opal ~ A faint scent of roses bathed in morning dew
~ Too beautiful to be living ~ Yet surely as immortal as the stars.

Ah! You like this old art, G0lden, do you? Very Happy I do ... it's so different from how Timmain turned out in the end yet so charming. And I discover details I've never noticed before ... the design of her gown returns in Lady Venovel's green dress. Less delicate but close enough ...

I like to keep your baublehead in the thread when Christmas time is over, so ...
... here it is to stay. santa

I'll do my very best to give you more colorful pretties, G0lden! santa  And some not so colorful ... or not so pretty ones at times. rendeer




Windspear ... that's the name going with this drawing. The feathers and the overall look of a similar early design make me think he's an early Voll. But I can see Skywise in it as well ...
Now I wonder whether both Voll and Skywise developed from the same initial character idea.

Wow, that is a fancy headdress and Windspear doesn't look too happy about either.

Adhri and Windkin, nice to see these two together again.

Right, G0lden Very Happy Yun wanted snow and stars - she's very content with her snow crystals.

And Treestump got a candle stump ^^ ... preferred it to a bauble by far.
He's playing with fire. He burns for his new job. It mirrors the flames and glow of his anvil best.

It's a joy to see you look in and comment regulary, G0lden. Have fun!


This one is for you, Kindredsoul Have a peaceful Advent time.

Awww, one of the children Ember's tribe is helping.

Love the one of Cutter and Nightrunner (I hoping it is Nightrunner)

Trollbabe suggested "Mercy" for the little one - a name I like to use as long as her true one isn't revealed.
I think Kindredsoul has chosen a rather old - very lovely - drawing for her avatar, so it should be Nightrunner for sure.


Back to VERY OLD times ... a glimpse in Picky's photo album ^^



Early on, you might not have recognized some of our cast. They were ... a bit angrier (Cutter) or a tad meaner (Rayek) or much handsomer! (elf-olution from WaRP graphics no. 1)

Reminds me of Sun Toucher too.

Heheheh... Picky brings fun. I hope he'll never find out I got my hands on his "youth" picture! Suspect I know: I'll tell him he's in best company with Lady Winnowill!
Sust wasn't up when you have dropped your comment, G0lden. The young one you've mentioned is Scouter. Followed by Filcher, Cutter's current wolf bond. The last in that row is actually Sust.
You'll recognize the couple of 3rd Advent for sure.
I know some pictures are simply TOO tiny or pale for your eyes ... hope you can enjoy most of the calendar nevertheless.  santa *hug*  rendeer

I can see what you mean, Hammer. I think it's the combination of aged features with the headpiece. Thank you for being among the calendar followers.




Our dear Winnowill ... spotted in the misty veils of the past and things to come ...

Hard to believe how much Winnowill changed.

Tyldak, Kahvi, sweet Korafay, and lovely Clearbrook.

I see with joy that the small calendar motives are well recognizable for you, G0lden. santa


Another scheme from the far past ...



... this hairdo became pretty much the "generic Chosen style". It's actually Tyldak and not some random Glider, tho - like his Lord he changed very much until he was ready to meet the Wolfriders.

I promise to take better care, G0lden Smile - it's not allowed to disappoint my most eager visitor here!
A hungry young human - the boy eats frog sushi. ^^
The green illuminated bauble felt perfect for Savah.


The 12 Nights are closing in ... you've noticed that there are 14 little windows. I include the Night of Thomas and Christmas Eve, therefore the first door will open this night. And from Christmas Eve til Three Kings there will be two ornaments per day - one in the morning and one in the evening (talking of Central European Time CET = UTC+1).

I wanted to do a calendar that points out the dark side of EQ without spoiling the Christmas mood and remembered the German "Rauhnacht" (12 Nights of Christmas), an ancient traditions in the Alpes (google "Perchten").
There is belief that in these nights good and bad spirits visit the Humans, watching whether they live true to the rules. Here I had my bad guys, a time for them and a reason!

Be ready to find some "not so nice" characters there - and maybe a cruel sight.

This drawing is not as old as the previous ones - still very early art ...



... and a major teaser! I've read (on the original SoC or on FB?) that it was published about a year before the story had reached this point and caused lots of exitement among the fans.
I love how the decorative metal work of the ornament works as part of the cage.
