A little group scene I made. I call it the cake scene, for this image has been specially made to fit on my birthday cake for this year. I'll probably make another one of these with a panoramic view. But that one won't go on any desserts.

Drat! I now have this horrible yearning to redo the suspects in my 'new' style. I also want to reassign a few colors. I'm going to have to put this on hiatus... again.

New list of Suspects and their corresponding colors:
Jonathon Sweet- Blue
Beverly “Bev� Tynan- Purple
Pat Sheetz- Yellow
Leslie McGrath- Peach
Sir Julius Reed- Green
Elsa Glover- White
George Phillips- Gray
Miles Brown- Brown
Michelle Saxby- Red
Nancy McGrath- Pink
Karl Sandor- Black
Stephanie Mancini- Orange


Edit: I'd like to add that I've eliminated the Guard house and Stables from the board. If you remember, they both were all alone at the top and bottom of the board, leaving alot of empty space. I thought it would be better to focus more on the mansion.

Well, Wickness got canned, I've decided to replace him with Pat Sheetz. Mainly because I like how Sheetz turned out in the 'new' style over Wickness. I would post a picture, but all I drew was a quick sketch to determine character designs. Either way, the motive is still the same. Former accomplice, turned on Brown, now feeling threatened. Yada yada yada.

Character designs completed (But not finalized):
Jonathon Sweet
Karl Sandor
Pat Sheetz
Michelle Saxby
Elsa Glover

New "Who's Who" List:
Jonathon Sweet as Mr. Green
Bev Tynan as Mrs. Peacock
Pat Sheetz as Colonel Mustard
Leslie McGrath as Miss Peach
Sir Julius Reed as Professor Plum
Elsa Glover as Mrs. White
George Phillips as Sergeant Gray
Miles Brown as Monsieur Brunette
Michelle Saxby as Miss Scarlet
Nancy McGrath as Madame Rose
Karl and Stephanie get left out of this one...

Here is the image that will appear on the reverse sides of the cards.
I think it turned out rather nicely.

Okay, here is a rough sketch for the board. I was going to begin work on the final today, so are there any suggestions for improvements?

I don't really care for the Ballroom being behind the kitchen like that, it just doesn't look very normal. Most houses designed like that (with the one long hallway that opens up at either end) were Plantations, and rather squarish, without so many curves.

I just love old houses, especially the plantation style, so it's just strange to see it interpreted as such.

However, I understand the reasoning behind it, it's so that you can go from either end of the hallway out onto the lawn, so your design makes sense in that light.

The wealthiest man in the world, he claims that Mr. Brown is blackmailing him for something he didn't do and that he hired Karl Sandor (A private investigator) to assist him in getting rid of Mr. Brown's fake evidence and preventing a scandal from arising. In reality, he is being blackmailed for something he did do and he hired Karl Sandor (A hitman) to murder of Mr. Brown and recover the evidence. But if he hired Karl to kill Mr. Brown, why did he come here himself? Perhaps someone got to Mr. Brown first...
Image
An old friend of Mr. Sweet's who's come over from England to provide assistance of some sort. He's obvioulsy a man of few words and has been turning the place inside-out apparently looking for some "important papers."
Image
A plant sent in by the Snipsville Police Department to try and dig up enough evidence against Mr. Brown to get a warrant for his arrest. Sheetz claimed his cover was blown and Mr. Brown tried to kill him. Did Sheetz strike back in self defense?
Image
A bitter schoolteacher who informed the police that Mr. Brown had kidnapped his son, Miles. Mr. Brown made multiple attemps on her life for doing so and killed her sister in the process.
Image
A respected senator that no one would ever suspect of corruption. It turns out she's been stealing thousands in public funds. Somehow Mr. Brown found out and demanded she give him all the money she stole as well as a monthly 'salary' afterwards. Could she have murdered Brown to keep him silent?
Image
She lives the high life as the owner of the Tynan Casinos and the heiress to half of the family fortune. Apparently she grew greedy over the years and for some time she hasn't been paying her taxes. Somehow Mr. Brown found out and demanded she pay her taxes as well as pay him the same amount every tax day. Did she come to Brown Manor with the same motive as Michelle?
Image
A highly respected industrialist and nuclear physicist standing at 3' tall. Mr. Brown ransacked his home on multiple occasions and also had chose him as a target for a series of violent pranks. Could Mr. Reed have snapped and killed Brown in a rage?
Image
He had been kidnapped and locked up in the stables until Karl found him and let him out. Could he have somehow found a way to murder his captor?
Image
A highly respected doctor who accidentially left a surgical clamp inside Mr. Brown after his liposuction surgery. And of course, Mr. Brown jumped at this opportunity for blackmail.
Image
A newspaper editor who received frequent, and unwanted, visits from Mr. Brown. He was constantly sexually harassing her, and even threatened her life. Is this another person Mr. Brown could have pushed too far?
Image
She was placed in charge of the Mancini's restaurants by her parents. She's taken the job quite seriously and expects nothing less than perfection from her employees. When former diner Mr. Brown found rodents in his dessert (That were planted by Brown himself) she was devastated and gave the kitchen staff quite a tongue lashing. The next day she received a letter claiming she was now being blackmailed because of her "disgusting, appalling, sickening cannolis." Could she have killed Brown to keep him quiet?

I'll add George Phillips and Mr. Brown tomorrow!

Image
Snipsville's Chief of Police. The least likely suspect of the crime. He's been following Mr. Brown for most of his career, always eager to make an arrest. He's the one who hired Sheetz to pose as Brown's accomplice and he's also been secretly snooping about the grounds of Brown Manor trying to dig up evidence, so far with no success. Plus, I think I made his head to narrow. I'll revise it for the card.
Image
An criminal mastermind, he's quite insane, and his mind has only deteriorated as he's gotten older. He's proven to be no idiot and has evaded the law for almost 40 years. Now he's been found dead in his gazebo. His badly bruised body makes it difficult to tell exactly how he died, plus a short trail of blood indicates that he wasn't killed in the gazebo afterall. Twelve people have come to Brown Manor tonight, each one of them with a grudge against the old man. These are awfully suspicious circumstances, there are many questions to be asked, but the most important one is: Whodunit?

Due to a price tag error, I was able to get the Clue DVD game for a mere $10 today. I've yet to play it, but I must say I really like the board in it. Since the layout of Brown Manor I've designed presents connected rooms, the 3D view don't really look quite as nice when viewed from three of the four sides of the board. I think I'll go for a design similar to the DVD game. A kind of floor plan with objects, or something identifying the rooms in them. I'll have to get to work on re-designing. Good thing I was too lazy to actually start work on the final with the former design.

Here's a new sketch of George Phillips. I'm much happier with this one.

Well to be more precise, the drawing is excellent, per se, but there are some manly like qualities given to Michelle that are not present in other pictures of her. The shape of face and neck mostly.
