For Pumadragon. ugh... I SO wanted to reference Cane in this... but i thought better of it to not.
Uh yeah... i was initially intending this to go into quicklings.. but that aint happnin. i spent too long on this to be chucked away over there. I tried a kinda sketchy approach to Corvin here, and i was doing that first scene you depicted about the elf who fell into the water. This is sposed to be corvin rushing to that elf's aid. Thus i was gonna reference Cane as that particular elf, cuz the guy is a clutz and hates water. except if its frozen.
anyways. C&C if ya want. Hope you like it Puma.

I really like the action in this, and how the water is rushing around him. And also the pose looks really epic. Hmmm, y'know Cane being that elf wouldn't have been that bad of an idea. Problem was I never really decided who the elf was, but I think what I was gonna do was have it be Lusha, because at some point in my big scrambled fantasy plot Lusha was supposed to hide from her enemies by traveling with Corvin underwater (using the powers of the orb to I don't know, transform into a water elf or something). Although, Cane wouldn't be such a bad idea either on that. Dunno, do you think you could tell me what you were going to do with it? I'm just really curious to know what you were thinking on it.
Thanks for drawing him again! :D

I was really only gonna do him for a funny reference. but the reason i decided not to was that 1: I couldn't fit him in without messing the rest of the picture up. 2: Though I considered writing Corvin into my fanfic at some point, I remembered that your story is one of your own, and mine is my own. It just didn't seem to be a good idea at the time because, due to the fact they are each our own characters, such an interaction could turn out quite bad. and i didn't really want that to happen when i drew this.
But if you want to then i don't see why we can't give it a shot. eg. The Avengers turned out okay.
I suppose if we were to chuck a few cameos into our stories though, It could have been that Cane was travelling to the Isle of claws to deal with a werewolf infestation that was killing off convoys carrying valuable seithir oil (cuz in eragon it's said to come from the "Islands to the north"). An Idea could be that a boat takes Daedrid, Elenduil, her dragon who is currently without a name, and Cane there. Whilst on the boat, sudden wave etc. and Cane falls off, into the water... cuz he's hopeless, and then Corvin and Kanyo show up. Thats my side i guess. What d'you reckon, and what would your side be?
More to the point, what is the plot synopsis (if you have one like) of Corvin and Kanyo's story?

Ok. I have a plan. kind of.
Due to the undeveloped state of my "stories", it would actually be possible to completely clip Corvin from my other world, and add him to your fanfic, although I would still probably have him be in my own story at some point. I mean, he's technically a rider, and being a "water" rider, I'm guessing he'd be traveling around in the huge water domain thing, so him running into Cane would not be entirely impossible. Only prob is that would mean my "world" place would somehow have to be connected to Alagaesia, and I'm not quite sure how that would work.
As for a backstory, if we DID want him to fit in your fanfic, we could say that his parents were killed by a Nidwhal. And when Corvin sets out to get revenge on said Nidwhal, he finds it attacking an Orcadragon that's in the process of giving birth (the baby is Kanyo). (Also, orcadragons don't lay eggs, they have live births like real cetaceans) And for some reason Kanyo's mom decided to give birth to her child away from the herd of orcadragons, because she is an outcast or something. Corvin tries to kill the Nidwhal with his spear, and fails completely (because he is younger then, and not very powerful) and the mother sees him and communicates to him that she wants him to save her baby. So Corvin runs away with the baby, and they return to find that the Nidwhal has killed Kanyo's mother. Soon after that Corvin gives Kanyo his name, and after raising Kanyo, Corvin sets out with him to slay the Nidwhal that killed all of their parents. I kind of like that backstory because after reading the last book in the series, I was really fascinated by the Nidwhal, and felt like they deserved more attention. Dunno, what's your take on all this?

I dunno. That seems pretty cool actually.
The problem is that since i started not so long ago (Couple of weeks after i finished those two maps, i decided to start writing the lot of my story down, and it's taking quite a while like. I'm currently writing chapter 8 and I'm only just inside blackreach with Cane and those eternal bad guys (the ra'zac).
but when i eventually get there, i don't see why it couldn't work out but i think i might need a better idea of Cane's character.

ugh. I meant to say i will need a better idea of Corvin's character before i write that bit. and no hurry, cuz I'm nowhere near there.
