I go away for a couple of months, and you all let my favourite thread die...

Shame on you all.

*duh* I never caught on that his dislike of being touched was over the Donovan thing - I thought it was more of an "I hate everyone" thing.

Then there is the loss of his arm - something that should have damned him to a quick death. Instead, this gives him access to is trademark prosthetic arm/ cannon. Seriously, if Guts hadn't lost his arm in the eclipse, he probably wouldn't have even defeated the Snake Baron all the way back in Vol. 1 (okay, since he's the main character, he probably would have, but you get what I'm saying).

As has been pointed out in other threads, Guts has rebuilt his tactics to rely on the cannon, and without it he'd probably fight just as effectively in a different way. And on the quick death comment - you've probably seen this before, but http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Götz_von_Berlichingen - (formerly) living proof that a one armed swordsman can still make himself a career.

Damn, just when I was beginning to get over the fact I can't find anywhere to get my PS2 chipped...

I still hope that Guts catches the guy *right* before achieving his dream. I can visualise it now; Griffith is about to be crowned the King of Midland, when suddenly Guts throws of his cunning Princess Charlotte disguise and cuts him clean in half (whilst still wearing half a dress). I'm going to stop visualising now, before I laugh too much.

Cambridge, in the UK. I know there's at least one other Berserk fan in the area, because the damn books are always selling out before I can afford them, and someone bought the second Skull Knight figure in Forbidden Planet. Grr. :SK:

Thanks for clearing it up for me

Well, he still has an astral body (as seen even recently by Ganishka).
Good point. So I suppose, a more interesting question to ask would not be "Would Griffith survive the destruction of his human form" but "In the event of the destruction of his physical form, what becomes of his astral form?" Do even the Godhand get dragged down into the Vortex when they die? The mind boggles...
Well, my mind does. I'm sure Aazealh's mind simply browses it's inbuilt Berserk encyclopedia for the correct piece of information to support/destroy this post :guts:

On location in St. Petersburg, for a series of Revolution-themed photos. This is me taking a quick break to refresh my knowledge of Russian photographic law.

And this is me in the studio - yes, from time to time, I do the bitch work.

I've won a couple of local tournaments in Soul Calibur, but I'll be damned if I'll acknowledge the existence of number 3. Splitting Knightmares moveset between two characters? Sinful! My two favourite combos are now impossible, because each of them got HALF of the necessary moves... grr.
Also, nobody can lose a Virtua Fighter duel faster than I can.

Armored Core: Last Raven gets my vote. I'm amazed they still release this series in the UK, considering the lack of demand... but hey, best Mech games ever.

Hot Fuzz is well worth seeing. Some of the scenes are shockingly well filmed, and the over-the-top action sequences are hillarious.

Yeah, Ryuk did look a bit dodgy. Still, his reaction to finding out he can't eat any apples was priceless! Think I might have to have a Ryuk halloween costume this year.

Even if Ganishka did win, would it be the end of Griffith? Or would he just return to being Femto all over again?

Technically a vote for Rakshas would be a vote for Slan, anyway... it was her legs I pinched for the picture.

Finished at last! Took a while to get Silat right, but the dream is finally realised. Once again, massive thanks to Grail.



Now it's time to start a petition for adding Rakshas to the "Who is the sexiest girl?" thread.

Thanks! I wouldn't have even tried it if you hadn't suggested I do my own colouring in the other thread!

Made a small change, edited it into my original post. Improvement, or too little too late?

I don't think Ganishka qualifies as the father of the Daka - unless he individualy sired each of the children, prior to their demonic birth. If anything, they're more akin to slaves. Tough slaves, but slaves none the less.

Character Cove / Re: Griffith or Ganishka, which one are you rooting for?
« on: February 27, 2007, 02:43:21 PM »
Griffith. If Griffith and Ganishka, were to fight....Griffith would win. Sound like a one sided opinion?...well...I don't care. :void: Griffith Rules, Ganishka sucks! Welcome to the third grade! :puck:
...but when was the last time two characters in Berserk fought on a level playing field? Even if Ganishka's defeat seems a foregone conclusion, I'm pretty sure there's still a hell of a lot of fight left in him.

Background is as good as changed - as soon as I get a suggestion on what to change it to. I've never worked in colour in my life (with an exception in my Art A level... horrible...), so I dunno what would work best! :???:

You know... I'm a little skeptical. I'm not saying you're lying, but 8kg seems very little for something that size! I was looking at some of the weights I have lying around, and noticed that they supposedly weigh as much as the sword... yet occupy a little less space than the average A4 printer. Basically... are you sure it was 8kg? It seems a bit odd, that's all.

Yeah, I know that sucks. Still, It looked more dull with a white background. And I didn't have time to add a decent one.

Jumping on the bandwagon again! My wagon is a little decrepit, with only three wheels. Hence the quality. And the complete lack of a decent background.

Told ya.

EDIT - quickly edited the backgroung before running off to a photoshoot. Better now?
