Heard about him last month and he hoped to be back in forums in February :)

A short update: things are going well, we've got all char sketches (the main party only) and one colored. I might do a blog post about the game next Friday with Fen guest writer :) I'm hoping to have more characters to show though!

I may have a bit of a reputation for pointing out the flaws, but ...

The drawings of Anne just made me drool. :so_happy: She really shows as a definite character with depth. As well as being sexy.

Good stuff indeed.

The style is quite different, but the results are really great.

Is this style more effort for the artist, or what are the reasons you did not use it before?

Well I didn't do it before for two reasons:
1) Because is twice as expensive :lol: now luckily I can afford it!
2) Also, I couldn't find a good artist with this style. Loren's artist is great, but he can do only lineart, so I would have had to find some colorist that could paint over, and was too hard.

anyway, I'll still use the old style for many games (Loren 2 for example), but for some higher budget games like this one I'll try to use this new style :)

Well the artwork isn't ready so writer couldn't write any intro, and adding to that the artist disappeared since a week...
Hopefully he's OK, I heard there are lots of bad weather problems in South East asia, many of the artists that work with me have problems right now (power outages, floodings, etc) :(
