What did she say about the text? I always thought it was fine, although this definitely works great too.

She? A couple of people mentioned that my text has no heart and doesn't look like it belongs on the image, which I can agree with. Its like I spent so much time on the image and not enough on the text, so I tried to fix that.

Lana's a guy? ^ ^;; Sorry, the name fooled me.

Huh. I always thought the text looked fine, and it at least matched because you made a real point of integrating the colors very well. But I guess that's the cartoonist in me, plus the fact that I think the text should look noticeably "separate" from the image...

*chuckles softly*

Yep. Lanakila's a guy! Though I often wonder what it might be like to role play a female bald eagle. I'm sure I would attract the attention of many male avians galore! *snickers quietly*

I think what misleads people is that Lanakila ends with "a". Names ending in "a" sounds more feminine, for some strange reason. Like "Nala" from The Lion King, or "Falina" from Bambi.

Weird, to say the least.

However, a name like "Akela" is the name of the male wolf elder from The Jungle Book. So go figure the logic, eh?

Anyways, you wouldn't be the first person to mistake me for a female.

Heehee! Silly tiger! Squawk!

Sawry. ^ ^;; Honestly, Lanakila as a whole is pretty gender-neutral, since it looks exotic enough to probably not be stuck on Western "a=female" conventions. But I've just known a couple women who go by Lana...
