Listening to the tracks, and being a lover of classical / incidental music I'm enjoying them. (I went to boganland for the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular the other week)

Now Go Forth: It will be pretty amazing to see / hear you playing this on piano, the starts bit were insane. I loved the slower middle bit too. The ending was also cool.

Beware the Fish: I liked it, but it probably could be a bit more fishy...although I don't know if that is possible / what that would sound like.

Cen's Theme / Quiet Please: I think that...although the quieter tone and less hecticness of the piece fitted the library theme; if it is going to Cen's theme it should be a little bit darker? It is just a bit too 'lovey' for what I picture as my representation of Cen (esp. from the WoM).

Good Morning: Does very much remind me of the olden days...well, it fits my memories. It also sounds like a bit of a remix / note change of the second part of Rondo alla Turka.

~~

I would love to play around with what would be KR's theme...if you're planning to do it.

Also, I'm assuming that you did this in Sibelius - could I have a look at the score?

I've never tried drawing Lyra before. Apparently it's nearly right, apart from her not wearing such a small jacket, and her hair is much longer than that.

Cen has a crush on Lyra. He's had a crush on her for ages, at least I'm led to believe. Lyra doesn't know what to make of Cen, as every time she's ever spoken to him, he squeaks, and runs away, which is odd because he's always making efforts to run into her, at least that's what it must be (nothing to do with a certain ninja horse shoving Cen towards BEING A MANLY MAN at the most opportune moments, surely).

And of course, there's this revolving door girl called Sai. That makes Cen's history a little interesting.

Strop never visits the library. But if Cen's getting grilled by Lyra about Sai... well either:

a) it's worth watching the drama unfold
b) hey hold on, maybe Cen might be in a pinch here!
c) but really he should just man up. This is a perfect chance to put his training to good use!

All these possibilities seemed an each way bet until Lyra marched up and slammed her hands on the table. She looks PISSED. Strop looks Oo

And Cen is in trouble.

To which his most used sentence will be "please don't kill me!", even if she has no reason to.

The world needs more Lyra.

Blew an hour this morning doodling, and this is what resulted:

Based on a girl I'm seeing, she knows kung fu (wing chun, to be precise, currently she's learning butterfly sword forms). Maybe I can persuade her to learn how to run up walls and climb trees like real leopards can haha.

...yeah I know the colouring really sucks :P

However, you did this in one hour, which is impressive. I assume you did most of the detailing with the shoes, skin, and twin sabres. Actually yes, definitely the swords, the design looks very intricate.

Actually no she's not a girlfriend. But since she isn't intending to date anybody else and I'm not intending to date anybody else for quite a while, you could say it's a similar arrangement.

Yeah, actually the idea for the engraving on the butterfly swords came from her online handle. The shoes are very quick renditions of Feiyues, as they're the shoe of choice for martial arts and parkour (I have a pair myself). Maybe I should think up a costume!

I was taking a welcome break trying to free myself from those shackles that were the WoM (oh god you have no idea how heavy a weight of nearly three years feels when you can barely muster up the energy to think about when you're going to move it forward!!!) Lately I've been reading way too much Air Gear (for you manga nuts out there, it's by Oh! Great, enough said), so I thought I'd doodle something out and revisit an old character of mine (well, Cen's idea).

Here's a small version, I guess this'll get tidied up and become a concept sheet!

Maybe I ought to put more clothes on her...

But you still have to update the Archive. But breaks are always good. Sometimes you just word on something too long and you get so sick of it you start to hate it.
