That's more the look I wanted, quite a task I set myself, I want to capture the atmosphere of that first chapter of Lovecraft's short story. Changed the background, with a hint a some dark tentacles at the bottom. Props work, the telegram works well as a link to the next chapter, but I might make it bigger. Tried out some text to see if the font works, happy with that. The maps are just there to show layout, I'll concentrate on those next, which should bring the whole piece together...

Coming along Brilliantly! When you get to your final post, don't forget you can post up to 4MB sized images, so don't skimp on the resolution.

That's looking great. Did you do the original illustration (first post)? That's awesome!
OK, this the last tweaks to layout, all pretty minor. Added the clay statue & box to map (some minor changes to map as well) to tie in with the picture & increased the size of the telegram. Now the fun part, some shadows & lighting effects, & good old fashioned tweaks with an airbrush......

That's awesome - it looks great! It seems I gave some erroneous advice in the original challenge thread. I've updated your tag from "Latests Entry" to "Latest WIP" and it should now be showing up in the challenge thumbs. Sorry for the mix up.
Damn that IS nice.
Just wish it was larger, 'cause I want to jet a better look at the cover of the book in the lower left corner. Mad Abdul's work perhaps?
