Well thank you. I agree as well on that note.

That said, I don't understand why fendue thinks it doesn't make sense.

The way the style reflects the whole satire of the situation is amazing in itself too
I understood what he was trying to say, but the sentence wasn't very fluent.

I think the cards are very beautiful. I can't wait to see the Wrench and Professor Plum. And the rest of the rooms. I wonder what the board will look like, too.

Love all of the additions, and I like the Kitchen the way it is. Boddy wouldn't have much reason to go to the kitchen, and therefore wouldn't really care too much about its state. If he needed to speak to Mrs. White about dinner, he'd just have her come into the study.

Speaking of Mrs. White, the Kitchen reflects on the "prison cook" look you were aiming for so all the more reason to leave it the way it is. :)
Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!

Well actually, Mrs. White isn't really a crude prison cook. She used to work in a prison, but brought a certain sense of refinement with her. However, there's also a bit of pitbull side to her and that is what the cigar illustrates (as well as her appreciation for the finer things in life).

As for the Kitchen, I will be changing it for sure. Mr. Boddy would care about the condition of his Kitchen because he'd care most of all where the food, that is put in his precious stomach, would be prepared.

If your a millionaire, you wouldn't want to have a dusty, old Victorian kitchen during Edwardian times, unless Boddy simply let the Kitchen fall behind the times. Or he could be that eccentric, which I do picture him as, but in a different sense.

Lastly, it's just too boring a picture, even if it is just a Kitchen.

Okay, so with Plum and Wrench, the suspects and weapons are done!

I've also replaced the Kitchen, and planning to replace the Hall too. Something about the lighting and composition that feels off and cluttered.

Um, no, that's just unfair. Making such a good Plum is against the rules.

My new favourite Plum. Seriously, he is fantastic! Quite attractive, too. :oops:

Great job on Plum. He's my favorite of the bunch. And somehow, I end up with another crush on one of your drawings.

Really now? Plum is in his early 40's.

Really. He's got a rugged, suave look, and it's attractive.

I decided that the text looked too messy. Therefore, I've made new tags for the cards.

See...
