  • I think the slashes were to separate it from the rest of the message that the draft was in...
  • Really? well anyways I hope people will come to this
  • Ideas
    - Cracked Acorn
    - Sundial
    - Mermaid
  • ooooooofffff this doesn't look well, is it possible for you guys to be able to advertise this?
  • Sure. I will tell all 7 of my twitter followers.
  • I am sad ;-;
  • Ideas:
    a hand
    a chalice
    a flute
  • I don't understand we gave them the materials why are people opting for the lowest option?
  • Because actually making a set symbol is difficult, even with the tutorial. It’s easy to have an idea, it’s difficult to put it into a visual form.

    I have a vector of this too:

  • @pstmdrn, what position is the hand in?
  • @ranshi922 I was thinking like an open palm with lines like palm reading. Let me try to make one.
  • edited March 17
    Something like this, but simpler. It is beyond my ability to make this symbol myself.

    @EnvyReaper
    Because it's easier. That's why I suggested (1) and (2). You don't need to comment "bump" so often :)
  • Considering that I'm currently in the middle of agonising over what to make as a set symbol for something I'm planning, I might well enter this. I highly suspect I won't be able to do anything at all until the weekend, but still.
  • I have a question: Can the ideas also be the sketches?
  • @Ranshi922 No, not really, the reason we have the difference is that people who are less artistically inclined can still put out their set idea
  • Oh so my flute symbol entry cancels out my flute idea entry.

    Do we get the earned avatar that you only get when a set symbol is made for you? I'd really like one. (I'm an earned avatar junkie, what can I say? Lol)

    I doubt we get one, but I would like to attempt to make a set symbol, it's just technically harder for me to do because I dont have a computer or tablet of my own. @Faiths_Guide helped make the Sagara Unbound set symbol, so say I drop art and @Tomigon makes it a set symbol, will that be enough to get the earned avatar?
  • @sorinjace what are you using to type that then?
  • A smart phone
  • Sword and shield

    Quick entry meant for a "dream world"! I tried to play with the border a little, to make it more original ^^

  • @ningyounk
    Very nice! It reminds me of commander2016's symbol.

    We can explore border's design more!

    Wait a minute how was my discussion page edited by not me? @Corwinnn, was this because I put their @'s in the discussion body?
