This is the overhead map, relative to the cut-section. Obviously it will be built dollhouse style, not like this.

I'm adding new characters to the game, first and foremost, Baron Bronze, who some may remember.

Am I right in assuming there'll only be a select few of the suspects used in each game, like the weapons? Always excited to see more of your art, and I am eager to see Ms. Mango and some new interpretations of Doctor Orchid!

One thing I do have to bring up with your picture of Mr. Tan is that the planks under the bed are really out of proportion with the rest of the room. I'm not sure what you could do to edit that in post, but it does seem very distracting.

The only name I'd consider switching out if I were you would be Countess Silver. Ms. Mango, Sir Gold, Mother Drab, they all have a good ring to them, and a less distracting name definitely works for Mister Ash and Mrs. White. Countess Silver, I think, is just kind of a forgettable name, and I don't think it fits for a high class character, you know? I think Silver's a great color, I just don't think it goes well with the title. I know Dame and Lady can be equivalent titles, or if you want to have more canon characters, you could go with Miss Silver from the patent (Althought I'm not too huge on that either). But I suppose this is my personal opinion.

(I'd say I don't like meadowbrook, but that would be old hat at this point, wouldn't it :) Not really much you can do there)

And this is probably just a nitpick, but are we assuming that only the first twelve suspects have rooms in the manor? Are the other suspects simply going to appear in rooms in their personal homes, or are they going to show up in other places in the manor? Because unless Boddy and Black owned an apartment complex or the Palace of Versailles, I don't understand why they would have twenty four bedrooms in addition to the master bedroom.

It's true about the planks. I'm not going to edit it though. Bad perspective and lapses of physics never quite bugged me in art.


Here is the room layout rough for all these extras. All suspects and all weapons will be used every game. But the mechanics will be changed to allow for quick eliminating.

Doctor Orchid's room is on the Servant's level? I'm intrigued 😗

Black Manor has little in ways of servants. In fact, it's not really a true country manor, but more like a criminal hide-out/den when Boddy took over.

Dr. Orchid has taken one of the spare servant rooms close to the Conservatory, working with Rusty on a personal study deadly for plant toxin.

I'm considering this and might change her to Countessa Argento, of Italian orgin.

You're right, just a typo.


Meanwhile, here is Mother Drab; Green's superior.

A new version for Mr. Tan. Fixing his outfit and the perspective in the room.

I love the way he's holding the secateurs.

I also love that Mother Drab is a nun. When you first announced your MMM cast years ago, I thought that was going to be her role.

Well Mother as a title fits a nun more appropriately, so I can see why.

Here´s Mrs. Meadow-Brook with the rosary. She is celebrating Miles for Day of the Dead, which is today.
