I'm Luthor,
I could write a whole thing about how I got here... I've done it before, but it's kind of a long story and a bit of a sore subject... So instead I'll make a long story short and tell you WHY I love it here. It's pretty much one word and that word is a name:
Ben.

The WFA Wikipedia was what first impressed me, and immersed me, in the WORLD of War for Arcadia... and on almost EVERY subject link: be it a area, or location, or character, was art by ONE PERSON! It didn't matter WHAT subject! Didn't matter WHO the character was! It could be a Tower, or a Weapon, or WHATEVER... this guy (or girl, I didn't know) had done a picture (or TWO) that was on virtually EVERY link! And what art it WAS!! Thick, creamy and deeply colorful while still being MOODY and atmospheric... Man, I LOVED it!! I chased it down. I became obsessed. Who WAS this! I NEEDED to know! and thus began my searching and digging... devouring everything I read and finding out who that mysterious artist was. Ben.

HIS version of WFA became MY version of WFA, the definitive version. It all merged to together and tied in, THAT'S how THAT looks! and THAT'S where THAT is! and he had been here FOREVER!!! and had his comment, drawing, or say on EVERYTHING!!!

I couldn't get enough of his art. Couldn't get enough of his stories... and humor (man, that humor!), and couldn't WAIT for his next comic, which I KNEW would most likely be next round, cause the guy was CONSISTENT!

I STILL feel that way, and I still come here to see his work (whether it be Pin-up or Comic or sketch or whatever!) and though I've grown close and fond of many others on the site (especially Five, who I consider a good friend and AMAZING artist) he's the reason I'm here.

AND... he's a really nice guy. Imagine that.

Aw thanks for the kind words Luthor! :oops: Greatly exaggerated claims, I am sure! But it is encouraging to feel appreciated - let's keep on creating!

I always appreciate you but you always seem disgusted and push me away.

Haha, it is true, Ben has drawn basically every detail of Arcadia! He's followed by Panda and Tin but they can't catch up. I've put a ton of Ben-art on the wiki because his comics are so rich in detail.
And we've always said that if Ben ever was to leave this site, it would die. There's no Arcadia without him. (So you better be careful when crossing the street or in the bathtub, Ben!)

Hi! I'm Runic!
I'm a semi-mod of this place.
I joined a month or two after Spike. I was reading Cola's tweets about this place and decided to check it out. I like drawing and at the time I was taking a Comic class at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. So it was relevant to my current interests!

I joined the IRC room and was quick to befriend Spike and Benstruation. They wanted me to join the Feri.Fire..Frerer... the RED faction! But I was changed to the blue faction. D:

At the time I joined, I was going through a lot of personal medical issues and I had a lot of free time after recovering from surgery. So, drawing comics was the best thing to keep my time occupied. And.. I loved it! Still do!

I like to draw anthropomorphic characters and demon ladies.

I think I met most of the active WfA members in person... there must be an achievement for that!
