Well, I think you were off to a good set with the celebrities you had narrowed it down to, but the paintings are really terrific.

The only one I'm not in love with is M. Brunette, but I assume you are going for some kind of teenage ward sort of approach? His bio will certainly be interesting as that is an unusual portrayal for him. He kind of balances the teenage looking Peach too.

I tend to agree with Cluedokid about Peacock and White, but only because their clothing colors are reversed. Otherwise, I think the current Peacock persona appears far more the socialite than the White pose which seems more doddering. But those are choices as well.

Either way, home run on your first try with the paintings.

Thank you! Yes, Brunette is to be a young man. I'm still not sure about switching Peacock/White, though. But, thank you for the compliments and suggestions!

It's the dark blue dress with the leopard lapels that seems to be appropriate to Peacock, and the hairstyle is quite similar to the 1992 Peacock. If it weren't for her name, I would have sooner thought she was Peacock rather than White.

I really like them. Peach doesn't thrill me as much as the others (But that's probably just me being nitpicky with her), and White is giving me a Peacock vibe, but they're great overall.

Thank you, PeachFreak. There are plenty of possible Whites on the site, so I'll have another look.

Okay, most of the main cards are done. I just need to do Mr. Perkins (the first victim). I gave Peach a new pic and edited Plum lower slightly. Hope you all like them. I'm more than happy with them. :)

Hey Adam. I love it all so far. The pictures are quite elegant looking. I did some playing around to see how Mustard would look if his suit was colour appropriate. Here's the result.

Your welcome to use him if you'd like.

Thank you, CluedoKid. That is brilliant. If you wouldn't mind, I would actually like to use that. Thank you very much. :)

Haha the first thing I did when I saw the new suspects, even before reading the rest of the page, was to open Col. Mustard's picture in Paint Shop Pro and try coloring it. I was doing the background too though. I LOVE the new pictures. Ever single one. They're fantastic. Great job.

Good opening, creating mystery and intrigue already. I too like the style in which you have written this, looking forward to the next parts :D

The opening's not bad at all. Good introduction to the characters and setting. Your writing style is rather interesting-somewhat flowery, but not so much that it detracts from the sentence. Well done.

What I really like about it is the atmosphere you establish. There appears to be a genuine English village aura to the story you're crafting, which really harkens back to the roots of Clue ... maybe even more aligned with the concept of Cluedo. I find your style unique and intriguing because it establishes drama but does not delve into being melodramatic.

Gee, thanks. That's exactly the effect I was hoping to create. I'm glad you see it.

Second ep's here:

I know the title's a little lame but it is appropriate. I'm going to get to work on the character bio's before the next installment.
