Now I wish that I knew the music! The setting looks both cold and mysterious; I like the colour scheme!

:-) Lena Yn replies: "Well, I don’t know if you’re going to like goth-punk-rock-something, but this kind of style is appeling to me.
Now tell me something, as an old friend. Does he look female or feminine? It’s the second time he’s mistaken for a girl. Very embarssing. "

Maybe I *would* like the music. Normally my taste in music nowadays runs in the line of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and the like. Way back when in school as a sinister black-clad teenager (yes, few nowadays will credit that I have such a past) I was into Siouxsie and the Banshees and Sex Pistols. He he. Now, gender? No way would I mistake this character for a female! I would have said that you can’t mistake the body. But I’d hazard the guess that it is the eyeliner, the long nails and the emotional pose that makes people interpret him as feminine. Even I would think that you were going for a somewhat androgynous look with this one.

:-) Lena Yn replies: "Oh, I do respect your music taste, past and present. Thanks for sharing this secret info with me 12
Damn, and I was making this charcter as a subtle mockery at all this gothic fashion. Who could have known he’d become my favourite! ^_^ Aww... black eyeliner, emotional pose... I like him the way I created. I guesss he’s just an avarage guy in the world of gargoyles, no superstrenght, no brute force. "

He he! You should be in New York where I am spending the spring as a visiting scholar. They have the funniest goth fashion shops, there would be plenty of food for your artistic imagination! 12
