Are you kidding? I love Nick and Olivia so much that I can't put it into words. Now I love you too for drawing them, and right now you're the best person in the world for drawing them. They look stunning! Domino rocks as well, but N&O are close to my heart that I love them more.

I was kidding you. It was a trap!
Do you know where can I get those cutscenes that used to be at Ninth-World to download?
Has anyone made a back-up of them?

Anyway. Here's Héctor:

I think Olivia ain't bitchy enough.. I'll give it a 9/10 anyway, great job!

edit: lol, next time I should look for other pages first.

Your Hector rules as well. Wow, it feels like it's Christmas or something because these are AWESOME! Your style is really great and has a lovely cartoony/caricature feel into it.

I think you can find some if not all cut scenes at YouTube.

Thanks, Frenkieee! Those 9 on 10 made me blush.

I like Domino too, SeaTurtle. Thanks! I think he was the easiest character to do together with Sal.

And talking about Sal, here's Limones:



And here, Don Copal:



I imagine him bold and with a wig. A short and pretentious guy that likes to yell to his employees to hide his weakness.

And finally Lola:



In this case she's a kind of Marlene Dietrich.

I always imagined that Salvador's jaw would be a little edgier, but he looks really good this way as well. Don Copal is perfect, as usual. Lola looked a little weird at first, but now that I've stared at her for a while, I'm growing to like her.

I guess I have a problem with my clock in this forum because I'm sure I replied to Frenkieee and SeaTurtle before your first post, VampireNaomi.

VampireNaomi:"it feels like it's Christmas or something ..."

No. It's not Christmas. I'm wating for job to do so I need to grab a pencil from time to time. I'm just a little nervous.

VampireNaomi:"I think you can find some if not all cut scenes at YouTube."

I found that cutscenes are stiil up on Ninth-World at he WaybackMachine (Archive.Org)
It's kind of strange since much of the rest of the site - like the screenshots - are lost.

VampireNaomi:"Lola looked a little weird at first, ..."

They all looked weird at first. They are just a bunch of lines on skulls. No eyes, no nose, no lips, but at the same time they draw themselves.
I guess they did like this at first and then pulled out the skin and made the skulls.
Yuck!

VampireNaomi:"... but now that I've stared at her for a while, I'm growing to like her."

Oh, that's Lily Marlene's Charming.

I can't see Sal's picture, the frame says:

For all other images: astonishing, really.

Thank you all peolpe - you too Rubacava!

Frenkiee: try to copy the image link and paste it on another window to see if that fix the problem. I can see it anyway.

Stewlil: "... these rock, do chowchillla charlie!!"

Ooo! A request! No. I mean ... Here's anyway:



Raoul the waiter:



I think this is the more fun of it. Every character has its own personality so every one of them can have its own look. They don't need to look like any other.

Guadalupe. She's in charge of the wardrobe:



Isn't she cute?!!

I'm still not convinced about Manny. I guess it is because he's the main character:

Awesome again! You capture the characters' personalities exactly as they are. Of these newer pictures, I love Celso, Charlie, and Lupe (she's so cute I want to eat her!) the best. They are really well drawn. Raoul looks maybe a little less snobby than I would have expected, but he's good too.

Heh, you've soon done the entire cast! Are you planning on trying Membrillo as well?

On request: Membrillo the Coroner



I guess Alan Arkin would do a great job as Membrillo

VampireNaomi: I wanted to do Lupe since the begining.
I always thought she was a funny and cute character.

Now THAT is genius! I want to declare Membrillo as my favourite of these pics because it's just so... perfect. The eyes, the nose, the expression... Wow.

Anyways awesome job on your Hector drawing dude! That looks more like Hector than your last drawing, seeing as hes an evil character and hes looks vicious in the drawing. Also that drawing of Raoul is very awesome, he looks almost exactly what his skeleton did in the game. Just throwing some more ideas now, you could try the Gatekeeper in Year 4 or Maximino. Keep up the good work man!!!!

"... you could try the Gatekeeper", said Achrono.
Gatekeeper:


And Bowlsey as a bonus:


A couple of my requests:
Does anybody remember what poem says Manny on the Blue Casket?

And where can I get pics from Slisko, Alexi and Gunnar faces?

I always liked this scene:

"Manuel Calavera: So what did you think of my poem?
Slisko: I liked it. It was sad and beautiful, like my mother.
Alexi: I despised it. It was too short and said nothing to me, like my father.
Gunnar: I had no feelings about it. It was aloof and licked itself too much, like my cat, Mr. Trotsky."

I'm sure nobody will agree, but, my perfect Salvador, is, and will always be, Lord Byron, particularly in this picture.

Not just the way Byron looks, but, also, their spirit, you know; the way they were, and everything.

I'm not sure what poem you mean, elbiolin. Manny can say any kind of poem at the club, depending on the player's choices. Maybe you mean Olivia?

The pictures are again fabulous! I'm especially impressed by Velasco because just yesterday I was wondering what you'd do with him, you exceeded all my expectations. He really looks like a hardened seadog! The gatekeeper looks frightening, and I think you captures his idea very well. Same for Bowlsley!

Have you any ideas for Eva? I think she's the most important character you haven't done yet. Toto would be nice too.

As for the pictures about the beatniks, I'm sure I've seen good pics of their faces somewhere. It was a lineup of all beatniks, I think, but I can't find it anymore. I can only offer this, and it's not very good.

El Virus, I actually get some Salvador vibes from that picture. They both have a noble aura around them.

Well, I can agree, El Virus.
There's a resemblance between Byron and Salvador.
Makes me think about why I exaggerate so much their traits. I guess it's good to explicit their personalities through their appearance on a first sight.

So Manny can say random poem lines but the same ones that Olivia says, right VampireNaomi?
Refresh my memory because I really can't remember. My confusion was because of that scene in wich Manny asks for an opinion to the anarchists about his poem.
Then HIS poem wouldn't be HIS but HERS, wouldn't it?

Also, there's a good line-up from the anarchists on the PC Gamer scans at DOD site.
The thing is - and that's why of my request - I can't tell one from another.
Who's Slisko, who's Gunnar and who's Alexi?

Anyway, Eva with a mirror at her back:

Wow! I love that Eva! That's honestly one of your best ones, and the mirror in the background was a really clever idea.

When Manny reads poems in the Blue Casket, the player can choose the lines. They aren't from any of Olivia's poems, but if you keep asking her to read hers, she will eventually steal Manny's poem. When he complains about that, she just says it's an homage. You can see the entire thing here.

I can't remember which of the beatniks is which, but someone who has a safe game around there could check it from the dialogue transcript. We could also wait for Shuz to show up and shed light on this. He's a fan of the beatniks, I think.

VampireNaomi: Yes I am a fan of the beatniks and I'm impressed that you knew! Unfortunately It's been a long time since I've last played and I can't remember which one is which. I can't find out either because I'm living overseas at the moment and don't have GF with me. Oh well! Maybe elbiolin could do the bartender in my avatar hehe.

Thanks for the info and link about the poems VampireNaomi.

About the beatniks I realized they are seven. The waiter, Slisko (the yellow one), Alexi (the pink), Gunnar (Blue), plus three women: green, pink and violet.
Now there're ten beatniks at the Blue Casket. The reason: Alexi is reapeted three more times there.

The original Beatniks:


My Beatniks:


And for Shuz the Beat Waiter:


Plus Maximino for Achronos:


And finally Toto Santos for VampireNaomi:
