    Nice drawings, although your good guy seems to have gone over to the dark side in the right-most frame. You're just evil in the head, that's why.

    I back Eph up on the colour schemes, but can tell you that a tablet is just amazing to use.

    That's what I like about you, Druid, you're perceptive! Yes, said person does actually end up at perhaps the greatest extent of anti - hero you can imagine, in fact...

    OK everyone, I've taken on a very ambitious project I hope to show you soon - all I can say right now is, it's from a scene in the first book and it's, well, quite challengin. At the moment I am 7/250th of the way there...

    Right then - per my original design I am 15/250th of the way there, but I'm going to post this as a part completed work. This is going to form the banner image for the book series' new page on google. It supposed to be an old photo/ sepia photo of the main antagonists of the first book - they're ghosts, and part of the background is that ghosts only appear on photos (Or 'Tynographs' as they're called in - universe) if they choose to...

    That is nice. I really like the lamppost.
    That sort of reminds me of a Lowry.

    I was starting to think that as I was doing it in fact, and then I realised quite how many people that was going to involve...!

    Well, the actual photo from the book calls for all 250 members of the Brigade (!!!), plus I'd probably have to throw in some passersby to highlight the fact that the main fosuc of the picture (for us) can't be seen by the living. At the moment I've settled for the High Officers instead! The colours are deliberately non - vibrant in this one, going for the 'old photo' look...

    What about copy/pasting and then just changing a few bits?

    I was considering that copy/ pasting idea, I tried it on an earlier picture, and wasn't particularly pleased with the results, it became quite obvious that this was what you'd done. I'm seeing this as kind of a 'life project' ;)

    I'll be handing this one down to the ancestors! I did have an idea actually - at the moment the book has 22 likes on Facebook, and in this, which is the cover image I have 15 characters. What I might do is, bring the number of character sin the picture up to 22, then for every like we get after that I'll add another transformed - I reckon that might work!

    Well I decided to add to it as I get more likes for the facebook page, one extra trooper for each like - so I suppose you can imagine yourself as a member of the infamous Lost Brigade... you know, if you like the whole murder pillage and violence thing (And drinking, lots and lots of drinking...)
