What I'm looking for, Rob, is a big splash-panel shot, with the new art style, of Ansom leading the Archons in the DDR dance-fight maneuver over Gobwin Knob's garrison. Possibly something I could use as a desktop image (I'm packing 1600x900 widescreen). There's a fragment of this scene drawn by Xin on the second page of Book 2
, but a big shot showing Ansom's string of Perfects and a bunch of stiffly-hopping RCC soldiers on one side and Wanda's Thriller zombies on the other side would be glorious.
I always liked this bit; Ansom seemed a bit pompous and almost foolish in several places throughout Book 1, but there I think he really showed that he brings more than just a massive leadership bonus to the table. It's one of my favorite moves in the big game of Xanatos Speed Chess
that characterized the last third or so of Book 1. Even Parson admitted that that move pretty much ended the fight
, as dance-fighting Uncroaked was the only military advantage Parson had left. (Zombcano is different.)
For this I would pay $50. No deadline, as I know you and Xin already have a million things to do; waiting several weeks or even several months for work to begin wouldn't be unreasonable, if that's how the scheduling happens to work out. The idea here is that I would be buying this picture for the community, sort of sponsoring its creation like an artist's patron. After completion, I'd want to see it publicly exhibited for all to sample, hopefully without having to pay an additional fee. If anyone else cares to throw in, that'd be spiffy.
If this is the wrong forum, sorry, and feel free to move it to the right forum whenever you can be arsed to.
