"So, you have decided to take the offer? We have a lot in common you and me. Do you like some tea and crackers while we continue the negotiations? No? Here is a card with a phonenumber for you to call if you decide to take the job. ELLIOT! What is this? A playing card? Am I some kind of joker?"

*SLAP*


Time for a baddie! And not just any baddie but the bitch herself - Queen Deidranna. This part of the forum is about the heroes but some of the pervs wanted to bed her if they had the choice of all the women in JA. So I guess she fits here in a twisted way. :/

I worked with this for 10 hours. Experimented with advanced backgrounds but I ended up with just a gradient. Nice and neat.

Can you guess which movie promo shots inspired me?

Hint: A queen beats a joker!

Howeee...Pretty nifty job out there.
These pictures are getting better and better...and on the other hand...appearing more and more rarely.

Still it's cool to know there's still working on it.Once again, great pic.

"Elliot! I want 20 000 copies of this posted all over Meduna! The people need to remember who their glorious leader is! Make me look noble!"

She looks a bit posh indeed. I added some rouge compared to her in-game portrait. On the other hand I tried to give her some extra evil glare in her eyes. I hope it shows.

Wow you made her look hot, those legs made me think of a mount-thing-expedition. (Oops haha)

Moviepromoshots is a toughy ... it's not about death-/da'at-cards.
The hint is lost on me.
Queen beats joker -> Deidre slaps Elliot some more ?

(sorta looks like a Han Solo pose ...)

I got my idea from this picture.

The body pose was something I worked on later. That part came from my own mind.

You got the inside joke-part about the queen and Elliot. :wave:

No, I didn't know anything about that. No money, no credit... haha. Maybe they just followed orders? Like I posted above "Elliot! I want 20 000 copies of this posted all over Meduna! The people need to remember who their glorious leader is! Make me look noble!"


It would be nice of them if they put me on the list of credits. It would be awesome to know how it ended up in the game because I usually just put my stuff up a DA, Renderosity and here (some people have asked to use my pics in galleries and so on). Maybe some of the graphics team are lurkers here?

Do you think it will be used in the full-version game? Pretty cool actually. I never could have imagined that my stuff would one day be part of a pro-JA game. Can I get a copy of the game for free? With all the extra bling the Steam-version has?

Seriously, you should ask them. Credit is the least you deserve.

Absolutely! That would be the minimum Cagemonkey deserved!

I agree that Stefan should contact BC and ask for credits, a gift, a copy of the game or whatever - it's very well deserved!

But i'd recommend a less demanding tone than Schein used in his proposed letter because by publishing the pics with photobucket the artist grants a very wide and broad license of usage including commercial derivation:

Also, I'd suggest to wait until cage gets an answer on whatever he choses to do with them, because, frankly, it's non of your business Schein.

I so curious about how they got the image and I sent them an email. This made a boring shitty day a bit exciting. I also wonder if they have used anything else I've illustrated.

I don't expect or demand anything. Some credit for the work or a free copy of the game would of course be nice, but a "thank you" will make me a happy camper. I'm not a corporate douche out to "get my share" or fuck with people.

Don't play it down bro. They used your work to advertise a game that they intended to make revenue from. It is in trailers and screenshots. I would take it seriously.




This isn't like someone using Smeagol's work and him having an ego trip over it. Razz

By the way, Big maps suck Smeagol.
