Some cards...

I've always wanted to create cards in this aged-Polaroid style, and have finally got around to it. I probably won't ever make this a full game, since I have no ideas for it outside of this set right here, but I just wanted to share them.

Scarlet, Mustard and Plum are my favourites.

Green gives off too much of a Spanish bard feel, while Mrs. Peacock looks like white trash. I was a little unsure about Mrs. White, but I've settled on the fact that I do like her.

Neat idea adding objects that correspond to the suspects.

I'd like to like Green but the coin is too overwhelming...

Thanks for the compliments!

A little explanation. My laptop has a huge resolution, so the coin didn't look as large. Seeing it now on a computer with a "normal" resolution, I'm planning on scaling it down.

I never really liked Peacock's picture in the first place. There is a possibility that it will change, depending on if I can find one that fits the style of the other pictures. Any recommendations?

I'm working on bios for these as well.

I love Scarlet, Mustard, White, and Plum.

Green looks like a pirate, I think. Peacock looks rather young and that pose makes her look more like a Miss Scarlet.

The items are a brilliant touch. I assume White's is ink but what's Plums? Are they both ink?

It kind of bothers me that Scarlet, White, and Plum have stuff that is physically on the picture, like a kiss or ink blots, whereas the other have objects t hat appear to be just laying on the picture. I don't know why it bothers me, but it does.

I will say though that the sepia tone and the lipstick kiss really make Scarlet's card one of my favorites. It just works so well.

Plum's blots are intended to be a sort of spilled chemical.

Yeah, I agree. I tried really hard to find things that could physically be on them, but I just couldn't think of anything that wouldn't appear repititious.

Hehe, I really like the style of the cards, but my regret is not being able to see Plum's face too well...

I love Scarlet, White and Peacock. The men, meh, not so much. Plum's alright (a lot of people like him as the hot, ladie's man university teacher at the moment), but Mustard looks like The Creeper...

Haha... I actually like white-trash Peacock! She looks so cool... kind of like Miss Peach in MD.
Was it Miss Scarlet with the Candlestick in the Ballroom? Yes... yes it was.
