Love it - you've managed to capture a feel of the previous artists (D'Israeli and Culbard) while making it your own. Seriously impressive. If they needed someone to stand in on the story I can't think they'd need to look much further than this.
Think I prefer your uncoloured version.... hope that's ok!
Of course Paul!
Well the story is in B&W after all!! How about more of a... textured graytone colouring job?
Phew! Not terribly constuctive of me was it.
