I shall be very honest...I was inspired by Jakob very much but I already had original plans on Hysengarde's design which was long black hair and wears glasses. Somehow when I saw Jakob in NT it made me finalize my decision to use that design since it matches his character. But yeah you caught me admiring your character :oops: :mrgreen:

Ooh...actually Alyssia's name is not pronounced as Alicia but has a similar sound to it. In Alyssia the "s" is dragged more, giving it a sort of hissing sound if you say it slowly. Alicia, the sound is more A-li-shi-a, while is Alyssia it's more A-lis-sia. But yeah I get what you're saying. Maybe it is a cryptic message! :mrgreen:

Anyways the production for this game is temporarily put on hold. I didn't know the first two weeks of the semester could bring forth so much work already! XD But no worries, it will be completed. I just need to squeeze it into my schedule...

Yes, but... The US English usually pronounces Alicia as "A-li-shi-a" - however, Time's Tear's Alicia is spoken like what I've often heard in British English - indeed as "A-lis-sia" or even better "Ali-sya". In any case, it's not pronouced with a "sh"[*]. So the two names sound similar after all ^_^.

Ah, anyway... sorry about the on hold status... :(

[*] officially, that is. Of course it can be spoken in any way that feels natural to your language, so "sh" is completely fine. In my language we'd call her "A-li-tsi-ya", strictly speaking.

Hmm...to draw my own background art or not...I've been thinking that it would be quicker if I asked someone to help me with the background art, but then again I don't wanna bother anyone...
Does anybody know of a good site that has free, yet cool, stock photos of life from the medieval era?
