Well, it's a good thing I brought the wrong file yesterday/today. Creatng "real" fictional characters from various pictures can be a delicate process. Perhaps I'd been overtired when I decided Andy looked good. I had Bart take a gander. He kind of winced, then made his suggestions. I agreed with his tweaks, but I also had to work under the restraint that it still look like Andy. Happily, it does, even more so. So there he is on the left, folks.

The boy in Midnight Chaser.

Off to the other side is a little pic I whipped up to show him with Zihn. Yes, I'm aware that they are not "fully integrated" into the background. I could probably accomplish that if I spent enough time on it. But I like them "popping out." As I've said before about these imaginary photos, I'm not trying to win any sort of photo manipulation prize. They're not even necessarily good. I make them just for my pleasure and as a fun "tool" in writing. And I think they're pretty cool.

As vaguely promised, I've included a "back of the book" type synopsis. Chances are it will be rewritten or even scrapped. Time will tell - HA.
