All my Tavern Tales entries, to date.

A list of links to my entries for each month's theme in the Tavern Tales Community.
It is because of this community that I could break out of my anonymous shell and have the courage to post as myself. I don't know how I can ever thank the mods for that. I might not have the time or the energy to make something for all the themes, but I'll definitely try because this community has come to mean so much to me. (Also this is me pretending to be organized, when I am the opposite of that) I hope Tavern Tales has a long life span :)

Competition the artists on here might be interested in


an appealing  graphic design competition aiming at the realization of a label for a limited edition of wine bottles produced by the Italian winery Cantina Valpolicella Negrar.

Excerpt: Drawing inspiration from Ulysses, the “Cantina Valpolicella Negrar” winery is launching the “Wine Mythology Label” project. Planning to dedicate a limited edition of its finest wine – Amarone – to Homer’s hero, it is asking creative designers to develop a label that has what it takes to become an icon, a collection item, the object of desire for thousands of wine lovers from all over the world.

There's a cash price (€ 10,000) and the winning entry will be dispayed on 5000 wine bottles

Here's the link! Check it out!


Art Beta?

Is anyone available to be an art beta for Merlin Reverse? Its a very rare pair, so you can decide after I tell you in private. Its mostly just composition at this stage. I'd be very grateful!

In case anyone wants to know where what is etc. You can rotate it around and stuff.

Pierrefonds Chateau
by cljosse

The big cluster in the front is the keep and The largest tower in the corner points South. (incase you are writing/arting about where the sun rises etc). The large window next to the keep is the window of the Chapel.

The Royal family's living quarters are in the keep. The lodging of others are in the other part of the castle. The rooms on the west and north side of the courtyards are the reception rooms, hall of justice, etc

The archway through which the Black Knight appears, (the one which Bradley says leads to the loos) leads into an inner smaller courtyard. The inner courtyard is the one the servants use to hoist up provisions etc, without having to admit strangers into the main courtyard. (They come in through the postern gate.)

 The square tower is also part of the keep. It seperates the two courtyards and connects the keep with the rest of the castle.

The main gate into the courtyard is on the south west side of the outer bailey, while there in a postern gate on the south east side (You can rotate the model around to see). These are the two main points that are heavily defended.

Note: The model also covers the lower part of the castle. You'll see the entrances are midway on the walls. Thats because it is at ground level while the model continues underneath. (As far as I can understand the dungeons have two levels, I think!)

There are bartizans all around the outer walls and on the towers. (And on the inner square tower as well) They are sentinel chambers. They also have machicolations. (Plus if you look at the model you'll see how it is defended on multiple levels)

(machicolations: If the castle is under siege and the enemy is climbing up the walls, the sentries throw hot water or rocks through these holes in the walls)

There are likely many things I am missing as I am typing, and probably more I don't know about. Maybe people who have been there might have more information!

I hope this helps in someway. Trying to put useless information in my head to good use!

The secrets in software

One thing I love about working with different software is finding out the little hidden tricks and easter eggs hardly anyone knows about. For example, there is this one software, that can be extremely multilayered and stuff (imagine a large complex flowchart where each item has a python code attached to it) and when I am deep in a project and my head starts to hurt, I could type in a command and instead of more code, a picture of a cat pops up. (I'm feeling nostagic because they killed this in the update) It was so much fun. Sometimes I'd use different cat pictures to differentiate different ares of the work. It worked better than grouping or colouring.
