The girl with a red hair is Anabu Dongge; the girl with a black hair is Meimei(the real name of Meime is Akari Borjigit, and Akari Ayase before being adopted); both of them are human characters of my conworld, and both of them are one of the few human native speakers of Lonmai Luna. Usually, only long-longs become native speakers of Lonmai Luna, however, some humans with more education may try to teach their children to speak Lonmai Luna, as some people tried to teach Latin or Esperanto to their children, that's why Meimie and Anabu-chan become one of the few human native speakers of Lonmai Luna.

Actually, I have drawn both of them before. (:
Interesting! Do you prefer your drawings or the images you've created here?
maybe my own drawings, as drawing yourself can give you the greatest freedom in designing characters. (:

Doing some planning work for a map of my mega-city. Should I use a perpendicular flat view like most maps? Or should I make it isometric to show the heights of the buildings?

flat view. Isometry would be painful.

Thanks. Still've been semi-lurking around, but I tend to limit my posts to whenever I have potentially interesting things that I've done recently or contributions to things and stuff. (Lots of Science to be done, which kinda throttles my creative output.)

Echoed. Isometric views can be quite painful; you can still show some heights with color-coding, much like one can use for altitudes on maps.

Indeed it would, but this is the kind of map that will take many months of work as it's about 80km across - so small enough to show the entire contents of the city, but right at the large end of that zone. Going down one level to marking zones and main roads would make for a very boring map.

While with a bit of writer's block for my novel and conlang, I ended up creating a flag for one of the nations in my conworld, the Nairu Federation. I don't know a whole lot about them at the moment, but I do know they live up in the northern tundra, and are composed of fifteen states in a Federalism.

I decided to do their flag first (even though they're a non-player in the novel I'm actually writing in the world) because 1) I got inspiration for it, 2) it's a relatively simple design, and 3) it gave me an excuse to make a flag with Inkscape.

Here's the flag: http://i.imgur.com/6JlO7zD.png

The blue bands along the top and bottom represent the sea and the sky, respectively. The white is the ice and tundra that makes up basically the entire nation. The green circles represent the individual states of the Federation (and they've updated the flag a couple of times as they've incorporated more states).

Ultimately, doing this in Inkscape was easier than I feared it would be, but it's really hard for me to judge for myself whether it's any good.

More importantly, 4) it gives you an avenue for further investigation in this world. Possibly even a new storyline!

Not my favorite flag in the whole world, but that's neither here nor there. It came out all nice looking: the green dots all appear symmetrically placed and the blue bands are a nice tint and neither too wide nor too narrow.

The thought had occurred to me :)

I'm starting to re-think the dots a little, just because it kind of looks like one of those optical illusions. Coming up with an alternate or a better arrangement is going to take some thought.

Short question to spice things up: Are German driving licenses valid in Telèmor? Or do they handle things like China?

Most valid foreign licenses (German included, for example) are recognized in Telèmor for a maximum of 365 days counting from the date of entry into Telèmor* if accompanied by a translation of the license into the Telèmor language. A class C or D license, however, requires a valid medical certificate accompanying the license (which is required of all class C and D operators). Ilian licenses do not require a translation, but, if applicable, the medical certificate is required.

After one year of stay, however, a Telèmor license is required. If the conversion takes place while the foreign license is still "valid" in Telèmor, i.e. within the first 365 days, conversion only requires a medical exam and one to pass the provisional theory and driving tests (rather than having to do the provisional tests, get a learner permit and practice a minimum of 12 hours of driving, and pass the final theory and driving tests).

*If one intends to stay in Telèmor for three years or less, one can obtain two one-year prolongations of a valid A, B, or M license; a class C or D license cannot be prolonged in this manner. It might also be worth noting that a prolonged license cannot be exchanged.

And, speaking of the learner permit...

I have been talking about an Original Character biography lately quite often.

Here it is, entirely written in Southern Middle English (in PDF format).
