Name: Urschanabi (IPA transcription: /urʂɐn̠ˈabʲɪ/ 🔉)

Yeah, I guess you're right.

Yeah, I guess you're right. Since he is gone I'm not that often in the forest. It was always nice to play with him but now a lot of known faces have left. So I'm glad this evening brought me a new company ^^
I have to go. Hope to meet you next time! ♥

Lots of people from Fly's

Lots of people from Fly's company still visit the forest from time to time. Some of them have new characters, so you might not recognize their pictos, but some have the old ones.
Hope to see you soon, good night!

It was a fawn that drew on you with uh stuff, but then I made it all better.
Thank you for the company the other night.

And this Fawn is like that dog who was chasing a baloon until it exploded. Now traumatized.
He's telling UY 'I exploded a deer' now.

Sorry I'm not very active today, but I was still glad to see little Cu in the forest! Btw, he should know that he's just attended (and spiced up a bit LOL) one of the meetings of the Russian reading club held by the wonderful SiLu.
You're always welcome to sit with us in case Cu gets tired (although it's hard to imagine Laughing out loud, but still)

And yeah, hope to have fun with you and Uit too sometime soon!

I liked the part where we were Mad's overzealous backup dancers, reminds me of those Eurovision shows. Thank you both for the fun.
And if the tail-idol trick is something you picked up from me, I can call my deer life well spent.
P.S. I gotta remember to draw them as gargoyles.
Urschanabi's picture

Yeah, that was fun, thank you

Yeah, that was fun, thank you too. And yeah, now we have not only the Crying Idol, but also the Blepping Idol Sticking out tongue
Funny, after so many years you still have something new and amusing up your sleeve. Just like the forest itself that always has some more surprises in store for us, no matter how long we've been playing - we just have to look closely.

That was my old trick. I was expecting to come back and not recognize the activities since you folks'd explored it all during these years. But you're right. And what's besides, to me, newbies keep giving me unique angles on how to see the forest. 'S why I get mad whenever they're ignored by IC deer. The collective human experience makes this lil world so much richer.

Upd: Good to see the spirit of Thailand Facelift live on in this forest through Urchin's massage salon.

Nice shots. Made me look through mine too, and I've found this:



And yeah, I do enjoy your doodle, thank you! It's always interesting to see how people perceive Ursch, whether or not it's close to what he actually looks like.
In your drawing his face reminded me of some insect-looking alien, like this one, huh. Truly a 'nose alien'.

Btw, is your OOC going to have a name?

This one reminds me of having some company sleeping on a hot summer night.
At some point it starts to feel like your skins are fusing, and that's memorable for a while.
Two aesthetically fused plastic owls, in this case.

Glad, though I'll make sure he's not as disturbing in the next sketch. Eh, it's easier to count the deer Kid doesn't consider alien. The 'nose' part was actually a compliment.

He's just a proxy, so no. I don't mind him seen as a character/given a name by other characters, though.
Urschanabi's picture

Reminded me of that meme -

Reminded me of that meme - "Judas's biggest crime was never understanding personal space" Laughing out loud
I apologize for Ursch, he often really doesn't))
But also the Crying Idol mask and the Long mask have similar eyes, and I can't unsee this distorted bunny face they make together Smiling

Well, with those round black holes as his eyes he does look a bit creepy, but also kinda funny, if you look closer. Like there's nothing but impenetrable darkness behind the mask, but at some point you realize that the darkness stares back at you. And looks curious. And playful. And might actually be friendly)

Hm, I think Ursch would be calling him Dreamer. He often wonders where he travels in his dreams.

Never seen the meme, it

Never seen the meme, it sounds hilarious aleady.
Since OOCer is neither a character, nor a person (and more of a simple indicator that I'm online/offline in spirit), lucky for Urchin, a personal space is a nonexistent thing with him (Although sometimes I may override his default setting to make some distance. Not to be taken personally. I simply feel like it, now and then, as a human).
Can be that apathetic, his head could be danced on (which the sceptic kid has done a lot of times, I imagine)

You're right, except I don't see a bunny, but a kambala/European plaice face. Gods bless.

Hm, I don't recall a concept of a friendly void in mass culture anywhere. Most humans/animals tend to see the unknown as a threat. Sounds like an interesting drawing challenge (+1 to my long list).

Good one. This reminds me we haven't actively played for a while, feel free to shake him awake when you're up for it. I guess I just get too relaxed.
Seeing how ingame pelts are connected to dreams, and how I picked my last two sets so that they remind me of live events while I'm inforest, I believe this is where he goes. No happy places.
In Urchin's company, though, since aardvark's snouts keep working during sleep, I imagine OOCer dreams of some windy, gusty places, like a beach with the sea sputtering at the back of his head. Ha.

Ok, now I see the flatfish too. Beautiful Laughing out loud
Well, it's mostly just the impression I get from the Long mask. The empty eyeholes look creepy, but there's also something about this long nose that gives it a silly and funny expression.
Ah, Ursch has turned into a slugabed too these days. Last week was fun though!
