I get that a lot! LOL!
The wagon is going to have a naaasty accident involving a ditch and a band of brigands OR a very annoyed Psycho Donkey!
The liitle security guard does do disco "By Your Command" - as required. He was going cheap, old stock, replaced by something with longer arms apparently.
So the map is a prelude to the full scale block buster scenario "Snakes on a Wagon on a Rope Bridge" ... I'm looking forward to the toilet scene.. you do have a toilet on the wagon, right? will Samuel L Jackson be playing the security guard? *lol*
... fun aside - wagon looking really good, I'm looking forward to seing more

Hmmm. You know, I think there's an episode of Dexter where Dex tells us how he makes the fake blood he uses for splatter analysis in the lab. I think it's corn syrup and something else. I'd be willing to bet that, though it's a TV show, it's pretty well researched - they probably have an on-staff blood expert. Probably could find the recipie on the Interwebz somewhere. Edit #2: Here's a convincing looking article: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Fake-Blood
Edit #1: We have very 'chatty' challenge entries this time around...
My scanner doesn't appear up to the task particularly but this is what I got anyway.
This is real ME blood (A Neg) on paper (A4) which I rolled up when it was wet, and it unravelled a bit afterwards, hence the wicking effect. All I've done is cut and paste all the patches into a group preserving lots of white paper around each one.
Given the nature of the images I can imagine someone turning these into some map or other, in which case, as copyright owner of the blood I would, of course, expect royalties on any sales as "blood money". Any further puns are banned.
It isn't exactly clear but you can see the sort of "veining" effect I mentioned leading off from the "mountain ridges" a bit like rivers or sub-ranges.
Definitely not a WIP. (Oh Lord, I predict more puns!)

Ok, Crayons, I almost feel sick. I can just imagine someone passing out at their monitor about now, LOL. What's that called when people faint at the sight of blood?
At least we can say, you are dedicated to your passion.
Ok, another part of the jigsaw, the goods cart and (some of) the goods. There're some barrels - water, oil, perhaps, too heavy and cheap for the original bandits to haul away. Also, 4 crates of Tin ingots, similarly abandoned as far too heavy. They're probably worth a decent amount around here but it's a fortune where the Tin Man was going.
The crates and ingots are relatively simple, new objects, the barrels and flags have been used in other things I've done but they're modified.... a bit. I need to make lots more "junk" to leave lying strewn around... that's a drag! My mistake!
Lot's to do!
I like those Barrels
