Awesome portraits. Dr. Nil is probably my favorite and by the look of it, I've been immortalized too :).

As can be seen from the images, posters now work very well as station front ads . The thing that catches my eye is the top part of the included frame in the market screen. Makes it look like the poster has been cut from something bigger. Or maybe it's just me :). Awesome work nevertheless.

You've already done 20 of these, but may I suggest at least one more: Coyote from the Oolite Saga. I'm somehow amazed that Cody has not said a word about it so far, since this OXP screams for it. Have you read the Oolite Saga by Drew Wagar? If you're of the reading kind, then I'd say it's a must. On top of being an excellent read, you'll get plenty of inspiration from it.

And is CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0 ok as a license for these? It's the most commonly used license around here.

Awesome. Very happy they work. Sure on the license, and I'll do one up for the Coyote, after I do a little research on him, ie, a quick read. :D

...wearing a faded black shipsuit and a beaten-up sombrero, the man was of mixed heritage and it showed in his features... a blend of Hispanic and Anglo with a touch of Chinese. Lean and wiry, of medium height and sporting a mane of thick black hair with full beard to match...

Being a major contrabandista, he tends to avoid cameras - yours will be the first pic of him.

First novelette?

That sounds like you're reading Drew's Oolite Saga..

The place to learn about Coyote is in Cody's novelette by the same name, which you can download here.
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

You're welcome..

Mind you, you certainly should read Drew's saga too.. the first one in the series is slightly loaded with in-jokes, albeit still a good read in its own right, but after that he got serious, and turned out one hell of a quadrilogy. On the strength of which, he eventually ended up writing one of the official books for Elite Dangerous.. Reclamation.
