This silvergrey fedora would fit me perfectly  :smiley:  It's about time that all those background artists of Indy Jones games compete against each other.

Expedition Diary
(the virtual hunt for the lost city)


November 25th, ...
I visited a public lecture this morning, the stuff was rather boring. Didn't know what got me there in the first place. Maybe to much free time of my own. But on one point it got really interesting. A old man barged in, seemed pretty much in a state of agitation, repeating the same fussy words all and all over again. Poor old man, the security escorted him out. I wonder what was the act all about. . .

I smell adventure and my nose never betrayed me.
I gonna find out!






That's the only sneak peek I will show till I'm finished and the end comes near.^^

In French we call that kind of tongue-in-cheek provocation "blowing on the embers" ;) ...And it seems to be working, I'm all exhilarated.

This theme actually fits perfectly with the game I'm working on so I'm IN!!!

Let me also say that I'm not cheating as this is not a background I was working on at all just yet (It's actually one of my end-game backgrounds from probably a couple of years from now, but this will give me the chance to lock it in a bit and base the rest of the game backgrounds on its style so they match)

It will be completely drawn originally from this moment on...

I've sketched in the basic look of mine...Just waiting for a nice solid block of time to do the shading etc. Luckily I have just such a block of time coming up very soon...

Well, I've finished research and found a name and a theme I'll go after.

I lost my best fried yesterday morning. Fun is over for me, more kind of distraction.^^
