Hahaha, I noticed the Dark Ferryman having 4 fingers too. ;P  Consider it just something that adds to his creepiness.  ;D

Especially when you are talking about mighty Katie, who, next to mighty Amy (Mike's wife) beat the crap out of Mike and me in a LoTR trivia board game!

Jon did an AWESOME job on Rosella. When I first saw her, I was amazed!! I could never get a good picture in my head for what she should look like, and thar was exactly right. His work is just excellent.

As is the stuff I've seen so far from you, Grundy!! Very good work, and of course we all know & love Allert's as well!  ;D

KQ9 website - Media\Gallery
 
There is a painted picture of a dock with a ship and a little house and a tower in the corner, will that be in the game. It looks really cool.

There is a green creature that looks like a Dragon with a rat body, could you please remove the rat body and place it with the body of the dragon.

Hmm...tring to find the first picture you mentioned but I couldn't. Could you link to it?  Most of the things in the gallery are concept art pieces, so will eventually be in the game, though possibly in an edited/refined/etc form.

Haha! You don't recognize the Dangling Participle for KQ6? :)

Hehe, 3D'll do that. ;)

That picture. Hmm. I'm gonna guess at no -to this version-, if only because the stylizing in the picture is not the style of the game exactly. You can tell it's drawn slightly more cartoon-like. This falls under the 'concept art' I mentioned - in a different form and version, the same general picture/location may be in the game.
