Hey all,

I'm the author of another web comic Cwen's Quest and I was recently turned onto Earthsong by my artist and I'd really like to do an ES cameo in an up coming chapter of my comic. However since Yates took down her E-mail I don't know how to contact her and I don't want to do a cameo without her permission. Does anyone know what her policy is on the subject or could they just bring this to her attention and have her PM me when she gets the chance?

I don't wish to sound self important but I've only got a limited window in my story where I can cleanly fit a cameo in so in a couple of months it will be to late to do an ES cameo and I'd have to wait quite a while for another good spot to do a cameo.

I'll understand of course if the answer is no she doesn't allow cameos but I'd like to know.

Thanks!

-EENick

Hmm, don't really have a policy on it as it's never happened before Wink Anyhow, feel free to cameo away! I guess the only thing I'd ask for is a link back when you do it... and lemme know when it shows up as I'd like to see it!

Yay! No problem! Um just FYI, we have a rather large buffer so even though we're doing the pages now it will be a few months till they are posted up. But if you like I'd be happy to post a sneak peak in this thread if you want to see when it is done.

Thank you so much! I promise not to do anything bad with your characters!

Edit: Update the pages are finished but due to our rather large buffer still won't be up for a little while yet. Thank you again!

FYI: The cameo pages should start going up on June 29th and run until the middle of July.

The only thing that might change those dates is a guest page I'm waiting to get for the end of the current chapter.

Yay for good surprises! Picking one character was a hard choice since I pretty much like them all but my artist and I decided it should be one of the bad guys and Alyss made a big impression with me. Alyss intro was just so awesome and so well written, I kind of became an Alyss fan right then and there. I just hope he isn't out of character in our pages given that fact we don't know Alyss too well yet.

In case you were wondering Neuria was our second choice because I like her character design a lot and it seemed like her personality would play well into things but we already has a speedster in the comic earlier so we decided a second so soon would be lame when we have a number of other awesome character we could pick from.

Sorry to ramble. Anyway I just hope you enjoy the pages when the go up and we get to see lots more Alyss in future updates of ES.

*mumbles quietly*

Alyss is a girl...

I KNEW IT! THANK YOU! See that is what I said but my wife (whom sometimes helps me with the comic) insisted Alyss was a boy and my artist agreed so I conceded the point figuring they knew better than I did.

Vindication is mine! I have much gloating and one minor edit to do.

Also good to see someone else on the forum! Hi Asa, nice to meet you.

But if I recall correctly she's a young girl, so you might not have to change her design much.

Nice to meet you too. This was a conversation between you and Teh Lady, so I didn't want to butt in, but I suppose now I'm glad I did. ^_^

Well we drew her totally off the comic model (just in our own in house style) so she should look the same as in the Earthsong I just need to sweep through the dialog to make sure their are no references to Alyss in the masculine.
