Homage to Talc - without the difficult bits smile

NumTumDeDum Wed 10-Apr-13 16:14:33

The power is strong in Talc yes. Hmmmmmmmmn.

I can't draw things in real life, never mind like this.

<hides head and runs away in embarrassment that pathetic attempt at champagne glass has been seen by The Master Yoda Talc, and is never seen again>

Yes, I am Yoda actually. Small, greenish and wrinkly.

I kept this from last year (I had to cut and paste into Word during construction - I was terrified that my computer would crash at any moment grin)

Spacing can be a big problem for MN emoticon artists. The only foolproof method is to Preview Message constantly until it looks right.

Underscores, asterisks or italic-y thingies do get cancelled out if they touch anything else - you have to work round this.

I think some of the underscores cancel each other as the indicate underlining or crossing out or something. 'Tis most confusing for I am of little brain.....

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Tue 09-Apr-13 09:19:01

preview, jux. grin oddly, I had to do several underscores on the left and only a couple on the right for it to look even.

Nah, it's a skill that very few have.
We can all try to copy Talcs, but she is a true artist.
A van Gogh to our scribbling attempts.

No Idea, I ended up putting in . because of the disappearing spaces, it's very annoying.

It's meant to be an angry rabbit, grrrrr!

Hecsy! how???? Just how?!

I have now been shown to be totally inadequate! I shall go into the garden and eat worms....

grin

MNHQ, sorry to have bothered you blush

JulieBunnyMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 07-Apr-13 16:07:56

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Sun 07-Apr-13 15:23:54

Talc always manages to do a beautiful job wink
I've no idea how though

JulieBunnyMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 07-Apr-13 15:07:41

You should try something like this:

>^..^<

Or wine Saves you the problem of drawing it wink

LadyIsabellaWrotham Sun 07-Apr-13 14:28:42

Do we think BollysNet is the upmarket equivalent of MummsNet?

Jux Sun 07-Apr-13 13:59:13

And I pressed post instead of preview!

There are actually two spaces first on the second line of that drawing and it should be/would be a magnificent glass of bubbly!

(Vintage Bollinger, of course, none of yer crass Mumm)

Jux Sun 07-Apr-13 13:57:02

Like this, but there is a problem with spaces, which don't work. Just wondered why? If that might change at some point? Is it very complicated?
