Yes, Endling is always interesting...but I hate those stupid little biographies in the backs of books. I think they're the stupidest things ever. They're SO boring.

So if you do that, make it interesting, or I will lose a fairly large amount of respect for you. It will keel me inshide.

I agree with RedVII. You should give all the characters Bio's along with their Pictures.

Also if this is the type of book I think it is, and I am probably wrong, I would include stickers of your art in it somewhere.

Agreed. But he could always spice it up a bit. Maybe have his Everafter characters give the biography on him. Have Red, Golidlocks or someone speaking, similar to how he had the characters hosting the awards ceremony for his contest.

This is just from what I have seen, but Red doesn't seem like the type to be able to actively participate in any sort of social thing. Seems like she would just sort of...kill him. >.>

Lose a large deal of respect for me for putting a brief biography of myself in the back? Like.. as is customary in most publications? And just involves a picture and some words..? How the hell is something like that worth enough loathing to kill someone inside? Why would that even bug you? That's like being bothered by an ISBN code on a book or the color red on a barber pole.

That is the weirdest sort of misplaced negativity towards something that I've heard in a long time.

Huh.

Biographies?
In artbooks?
Never seen 'em, never read 'em.
Even if I've seen any, I wouldn't understand, since most of my artbook collection are Japanese (I know I'm a weeaboo, shaddup.) and only one is by one specific artist, Kawamori Shoji.

Some interview-ish stuff would be good.

Well, I would love to see your first sketches and character designs of everyone (Especially Hansel and Gretal). I wanna see how they looked before thier final designs like....If Hansel was the big brother and Gretal was the little one? But she was always bossing him around anyways? Or if Goldilocks was a little brat who didn't listen to anyone and that's why she met the Big Bad? Oh god! I can't stop! >.@

I think it would be cool to see how the characters act in action sequences. I mean, how they fight, if they run for it they run for it. Red's awesome, but we had more than enough kickass from her. Let the others kickass too...

... Also, lots of Mr. Boots please.

You know those "A Day In *insert place here*" documentaries? It would be great if we can have a peak on the daily lives of an average inmate. Considering they do have certain activities that don't involve staying in a cage all day. If that's the case you could show Ever After in the perspective of the staff. Maybe make up a staff member and have him/her interviewed? But that's just a suggestion, you don't have to do it. *stops yapping*

It stems from two things: First, when I see one, I'm painfully jolted back to reality and I go "oh...that's right, reality isn't interesting." Also from a grade five project where they made us write and illustrate small children's stories...and made us write those little bios. I wrote mine in first person, and the teacher got mad at me, to the point where I was on the verge of tears. Which is another deep-seeded reason for me to hate them.

That, and they're SO bland. They make creative people seem dull.

New characters, some awesome scenes, maybe teasers for stuff that's going to happen in the comic. Some cool poses of characters with hair/clothing flowing in the breeze. :)

Like Lenaebaby said, some preliminary designs of characters would be cool, sketches and such.

Ooh, and one huge full-page fight between all the characters. :P Or as many as you can fit, anyway.
Just because I'm trying to kill you doesn't mean we can't be civil.

I have an image of Hansel and Gretel hunting down the Gingerbread man. Think I might try drawing that too...

Well, as he said, this is not supposed to be like your regular artbook. And once again, I'm not talking long book report biography here. I'm saying he can be creative with it. What's the harm in an artist including information about himself in his own book? I for one, would like to know a little about Shaun Healey's background.

So sue me... T_T

Would "Everything" work? :3

I'd like to see early sketches of the characters, even the ones you've pulled out of the main storyline (The famed Mother Goose pic i've never seen D: ), character comparisons between the early and recent images... and, is it possible to have a full map of the asylum and the grounds... heck if you can just throw in a 'LoTR' type map of the world i'd be happy ^^

Also a 10,000 word essay on your dedication to Everafter lol (kiddin)

I'd like
-Silly minigames, for the back. Like "Which character are you?" and such. Generic maybe, but if I get Red... I could feel like a badass. Even for a moment...
-First designs. Ya know.
-I wanna' see some of the Everafter chars interacting with chars from LiS, or Ree. I know it's a EA artbook, but I just wanna. I want to see Red meet Lilith, or Wrath.
-Um, "A Day in the Life of (char here)"?
I have more, I think...

Hey Endling, I really REALLY want to see some pictures of Tom Thumb doing the deed with Rosie and Posie. Any chance you'll put something like that in there? :fuckedup:
Well, I believe in God, and he's told me this. Things lying around were left for us to take.

Hahah, how about a court-style short comic about why everybody is in the asylum?

"Tom Thumb: Sentenced to the asylum until deemed fit due to the horrible misfortune of having evil shoes." *Slams down the wooden gavel*

Hm, maybe you could do those High School Yearbook pages with stuff like, "Most likely to Succeed" and stuff... only with a Endling twist.

Or song imagery, I dunno about everyone else, but when I listen to certain songs I start picturing stuff from my own series. Kinda like theme songs, with huge rotating views and whatnot. Maybe you could sketch out some of yours...?

Well, that's my two cents.

i think you should put a before and after, you know, how the character looked before you made the finishing outcome, those are fun.
