[Two quick notes! First, after more than a little cajoling from certain individuals who know who they are, I've set up a DeviantArt account under the GarroshHllscream name (same as the Garrosh Twitter, just sans the @). Think of it as Gurtash's sketchbook -- I'll likely use it to toss up various odds and ends: character sketches, requests (want to see your character Gurtash-style?), work-in-progress glimpses of upcoming comics (perhaps as reassurance that something is in the works when I have a lull), and whatever else might come to mind. Don't worry, I realize that I'm posting content to the blog at a slower pace than I would like, so I don't intend to let myself become overly distracted by the new toy; the DA account will serve to complement the blog, not compete with it. Hopefully folks will enjoy having the occasional peek at what Gurtash is working on.
That said, I'm getting the page started with a holiday rendition of one of our trainees -- Ruekie, decked out in her Hallow's End costume. I'd planned costumes for the other trainees, and may still try to get one or two of them done before the day is out. Time will tell!
Meanwhile, we're coming down to the last few days before the final meta raid weekend prior to the release of Warlords of Draenor! I just wanted to remind folks that we'll be planning to do something -- hopefully one last Siege of Orgrimmar -- on Saturday, November 8. Mark your calendars! With the imminent release of the new expansion, this will likely be the last meta raid proper that we'll be doing for quite a while, though we might still carry on with other random shenanigans in the future...]
