Character Portraits!

Postby Aglauros on Thu May 10, 2001 4:22 am

Also, I've got a Fitzgerald translation of <u>The Odyssey</u> right here, just begging to be plundered ... ahem, quoted ... for 'historic' blurbs to go with the Homeric folks. Anybody for/against the idea?<P>-- aglauros

Once i get done with finals, I could write up a background of sorts. I'm pretty handy with the prose.<P>Sentatus Populousque Romanus

All righties. I've gone through the archive with a fine-toothed comb looking for suitable character portraits. Mike, please tell me you keep archives of the strip without word bubbles - or at least text? Please? Otherwise, some of these might not work.<P>If anyone has a better idea for some of the characters, or a favorite picture that they'd like to see used on the 'Characters' page, now is the time to speak up.<P>Here's the listing, as copied from 'finals = suck' ... have fun, folks.<P>odysseus

Cool. I'm more of the editing type. Will search and retrieve various Odyssey quotes and attempt to crop piccies ... and will leave the prose descriptions to you. ;-)<P>But, for now, I will go watch Jodie Foster and the eye candy in <i>Contact</i>.<P>Woo hoo! Thirtieth post!

Dude!<P>Yeah: I have original versions of them all in photoshop format, with the layers intact. So I can go through and get them without text, or without color, or whatnot.<P>And I'm all for original Odyssey blurbs! Bring 'em on!<P>V: a background'd be awesome.<P>As for the slaves: Antinoe's the whiny one, I think.<P>[and, yeah, today's strip gets pushed back another day. but there will be three this week.]

Look for the complete background: "Final Myth: The Backstory of Parthenos" on Wendsday. The Trojan War and it's aftermath, with a "unique" twist.<P>At this point, I'll do anything to be unproductive. I think mike can relate <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>Senatus Populousque Romanus
