...then why can't I paint you? Oh wait - now you can!

After nearly two years, this item will be up for sale in Bloodriven Village. Paint to your heart's content and gain skill as you do so. Your paintings will become more and more elaborate as you hone in on that design talent. If you are persistent with your studies, and have an unlocked easel (also available at Duskruin) you could master the skill and paint someone else's portrait!

A very, very small number of Tier 2 items will at some point be made available, though at this time it's undecided where -- but these will allow your very own customized paintings.

I do have to give a HUGE shout out to all the GMs (Galene, Wyrom, Vanah, Elysani, Wakefield, Xayle... I hope I'm not forgetting anyone), Mentors, and players, who helped me finish up paintings and get this item out the door. xoxo

With enough skill, and the right easel, the possibilities are endless!

>analyze easel

This item can be freely altered, but it must remain an "easel". Long descriptions are okay; no shows. It may not be lightened/deepened. Current verbs: CLEAN, CLOSE, HUG, OPEN, and PULL.

If you are holding a suitable paintbrush, you can PAINT EASEL to paint pictures! As you paint more pictures, your skill will progress, and you will create more elaborate paintings. Your easel must be on the ground in order to paint.

If you progress far enough in your painting skill, and you have an unlocked easel, you can:

Tier 1: paint a portrait of another person using pre-written styles.
Tier 2: design your own custom paintings. (Please note that this tier will be rare.)

HUG the wooden easel to view the syntax for special Master Painter commands.

The easel is currently Tier 0. (0|1|2)

The easel conveniently has all the paint you'll ever need. You'll need a paintbrush, though. Those are sold in the shop as well.

Easels come off the shelf with 20 pieces of canvas. You can either buy more canvas (in stacks of 10) or you can purchase the canvas maker. It's pricey though, and if you have a ranger friend who can forage (non-broken) twigs, you'll be set for life.

Those are T2 (the other is T1 [OTS]) -- if your skill is high enough, you can paint with models, pre-written stuff, but... lots to discover about it.

MAN you guys are keeping me busy!

Okay, a few things addressed.

1) Cats and rats should no longer prevent you from doing what you need to do with your easels.
2) Multiple easels in a room should no longer cause issues with painting.
3) Numerous typos and truncated strings have been fixed (like the eye color in the WORSHIP painting.)
4) Fixed the "in a xxx setting" text issue in painting messages for the model.
5) Fixed the foe vanquished to pull from the model and not the painter. (whoops!)
6) Fixed the issue with self-targetted portraits. Sorry guys, you'll have to find another artist!

What'd I forget?!
