//Talon bun to join the bunny army that was going on a little while ago (I’m late like always)

>credit to blight-archer and judgement-kayle for starting the bunny stuff

//I want to thank all of you, for both the message I’ve received in my inbox, and the replies to that post. It really helped me to feel loads better than I was before, so thank you, really. I’m going to take a small break from things, I might get an update out before the end of the month, but if not, I’ll see about it once I’m done moving houses early next month. 

Thank you again everyone, you’re the best. <3 I really needed that little boost a lot of you gave me with your words. 

Current situation with the blog

//I figure I owe everyone an explanation as to why updates have been slow. I’ll put it under a readmore, because I don’t want to clutter dashboards with a possibly long post. 

But first before I freak anyone out: I’m not quitting, but it’s important you read this anyway so you know what’s going on.

New desing looks very nice indeed. The things I'd point out (wheter do you find this positive or negative is up to you) : Is his blade larger now? It kinda looks bigger, and more curbed. His clothes seem a bit darker, or better said grey-er. He wears more armor and clothing in the upper part of this body. This might limit movement or be heavier

//Everything you pointed out are actually things I’m aware of and did on purpose. :’D His blade is slightly larger, engineered to protect his upper arm as well as his lower (thought admittedly I made it a little too big on the ref sheet, it should stop at the beginning of his shoulder), the colors of his outfit are definitely darker to provide better hiding in the shadows. The lighter purple would have given him away too quickly. As for wearing more armor and clothing, he actually doesn’t. 

I added a small scarf that sits inside his hood to conceal his face when he needs it (or provide warmth, Noxian nights are cold I’d imagine), and also made the long strip of cloth that stretched over his upper back to attach his cape wrap around his arm as well. The cloth is light, not at all heavy, so it’s easy to move in. If anything, Talon lost quite a bit of his weight when he dropped those fully armored boots that I exchanged for leather ones for better sneaking and climbing, allowing him to be lighter on his feet than he was originally. 

Thank you for pointing stuff out! But I hope this clears things up for you, I’ve definitely given the design a lot of thought so I wouldn’t do anything that would make it hard for him to move or be the best assassin he can be.  I only improve things. :>

However, if you guys have any suggestions on improving the design, or if you just flat out don’t like it, please tell me? I’m open for that sorta stuff. 

//So far the replies to Talon’s new design have been overwhelmingly positive, I’m glad that everyone is liking it so far. QwQ Have a thing while I practice drawing it. If I’m lucky I’ll be able to get to ask replies soon. 
And as summonerflaymedragonborn said, the cloth inside his hood does also double as a scarf/face mask thing for extra concealing of identities. :’D Good stuff. Also slight eyeshadow for better eye concealing, or is he just tired we really don’t know
((I really do like the new outfit. The addition to his armor and certain parts of his cloak makes him seem a lot more roguish. I especially love the little part at the lower part of the hood where it kinda looks like a scarf covering his neck ;D))

//AHH I’M GLAD QwQ I was definitely going for a more rogue type look, so I’m glad it fits what I was intending it to do. More like a shadow, I suppose. As it should be, and I’m having a lot of fun messing with it and drawing it. It’s very refreshing. 

Super glad that so far everyone else is enjoying the new design too <3 Thank you for the support and letting me know you like it. I was a little worried the sudden change would be off-putting, haha. 

//Talon’s gotten a (slight) haircut and a new outfit. He’s been wearing the same thing for three years (and I’ve been drawing it for three years) so it’s time for a touchup I think, yeah? This is how I’ll be drawing my own Talon from now on.

Though of course I’ll occasionally draw him in his old duds for old times sake here and there. ;u; (And yes you can draw this version too, cosplay it, whatever so long as you give credit, before anyone asks)

Just wondering if you still RP, Bladesshadow has been inactive for a month and I've been wnating to get back into RPing for some time :S

//I do still RP, yes. Bladesshadow has been inactive because as I said earlier, last couple weeks of college and I’ll be moving soon. College is done now, and once I get done moving I’ll hopefully be a lot more active. Sorry for the wait, but just be patient, I’ll be back soon. :<

//Ahhhhh thank you so much QwQ I’m glad you like the way I draw him, I’ll admit I sometimes have a bit of doubt if I’m portraying him well enough or not in some situations, haha;;; But to know this certainly makes me feel better, so I’m happy to hear it! Maybe I’m just in a minor slump lately ahh I dunno
