The Magician's Nephew to be more precise hehe, is the first book in a series called Narnia.
The sorcerers apprentice could be a movie for all I know, but I don't think I've heard of it.

Yes, Slamgrinder, I'm on The horse and his boy, pretty much not very far, it is a little boring for me too but I don't want to skip a thing, besides I think it'll improve, and it's not that boring really.
Anyway the first one I read was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which was the first to come out even though second in the series hehe, and probably the most well known. If I ask a friend from my school for example (one that at least reads sometimes lol) if he or she have heard of "The Lion..." then they'll probably say yes, but if I ask about one of the other books no will likely be the answer for most. I dunno if many will even know it's part of a series called Narnia heh. :P

As I said however, The Magician's Nephew is my favorite. :)

Creepy...ever read The Great Divorce, also by Lewis?  It is about a train ride to the other side, so to speak.

OMG evilspacefart that looks awesome, I love the coloring!

As for the theme, you made me think of Grim Fandango (of course, everything makes me think of Grim Fandango ;D) when you said 'train ride to the other side'. That passanger guy (a ghost I see) is great! Great image! This's is gonna be really hard to vote about. :)

Okay, I've contributed enough dialog...how about a pretty picture?



(Please note: the phrase pretty picture should in no way be considered a guarantee) :)

Yeah, they are blurry...it looked so darned funny with them as focused as they were originally, but I couldn't find a happy medium.

This isn't really a background a character would walk around in but its a background like if you zoomed in on an object seperatly (like self-portraits of talking characters). It was orginally made somewhere in the 400x300 and then I decreased the size.

Color Burn and Color Dodge is what I use to shade the image in. But before that I make a B&W drawing in outlines, fill in with basic colors, and shade in. Dodge tool can be used to add scratchs and dents in. Alot of these techniques are used in skinning guns like in Counter-strike. But since I dont have a tablet i cant get the best results yet.

Yes, Slamgrinder, I'm on The horse and his boy, pretty much not very far, it is a little boring for me too but I don't want to skip a thing, besides I think it'll improve,

Plasticman, Evilspacefart, Dunezone:
Great backgrounds! - It's nice to see so many variations on the theme!

And while still on the Narnia topic, I'll just say that my favourite is The Silver Chair... ;D I truly recommend that one!
