Standing tall and on a hilltop the colossus towers over everything and lights the way for lost wanderers.

Just read the “The Norrathian Colossus” based off the poem “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus, take a look at the screenshots and prepare to be amazed!

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our moon-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty Tier’Dal with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and his name
Father of Exiles. From his beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; his smoldering eyes command
The air-bridged mountains that rival nations frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries he
With silent lips. “Give me your Trolls, your Dwarves,
Your huddled masses of Iksar yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the Gnomes, and Frogloks to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    Never THE Best. Lord please don’t put that type of pressure on me!!! EQN Landmark is like a market full of different fruits and vegetables. You really can’t compare an apple to orange or banana to a kiwi.

    I’ve seen comparable sculpture work and jaw dropping architectural work that makes me weep inside. I draw from those that I have seen for inspiration and hope that viewers will do the same with mine and realize their potential.

    We have Closed Beta coming!! All those new fresh faces and minds yearning to create. They will have the benefit of using our work as a foundation for their imagination.

    Time for Alpha players to step up our game!! ;)

    I would like to add I have had no training. I just grew up with a mom who had oil paints and turpentine scattered throughout the house and who encouraged me to imagine and allow my creativity to take me wherever I wanted to go.

    “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
