"I just wanted to draw everyone being happy for once." I don't blame you, man :iconemorussiaplz:

Hundreds of layers, goddamn :O It looks like only a dozen or so, at least. Still, it's an awesome picture, since you put a lot of effort into it :clap:

I love how shy/awkward Corvo & Piero look, here. Emily, Samuel, Callista and Cecelia are really cute, too ^^

You know, your fanart reminds me of the iconic Declaration of Independence painting: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trumbull… Well, just a little XP

YYEEEE i was so unhappy at the mid-way point when you get poisoned because DAMMIT I WANTED THAT REUNION SOMEONE MENTIONED (someone did mention a reunion at the bar at somepoint in low chaos at least i swear it)

and lmao I didn't really know what i was doing so I'm pretty sure the background has 50+ (100+?) layers for lines and colors, and each of the people has between 10-20 layers for lines and another 5-10 for colors. and shit i don't even know about the shadows maybe another 5-10? god who knows i think the PSD was about 1gb by the time i was done. and the layers aren't including all the sketches THIS PICTURE WAS A NIGHTMARE it took about 5 minutes to save and i saved every 30 minutes because I was so afraid of losing progress

anyway THANK YOU i really...... love all of them........ and just want them to be happy even tho like half of them are terrible awful no-good people

plus overhearing lydia talk grudgingly about how good wallace's cooking was i. had to. it was necessary

Ah, same here. Damned poisoned drink & betrayal clichés…  
Although I should’ve seen that one coming. Corvo wasn’t out of the woods yet, definitely not.

I think I heard a character mention a reunion once- in casual (low chaos) game dialogue. Not 100% certain, though.

I’m still amazed that you used so many layers. Seriously, WHOA. And the process itself sounds damned arduous and frustrating. The picture doesn’t look like you used that many (maybe a few dozen), but it’s probably because they all blend so well into the final product. …I wish I could string more than 2 layers together myself ^^;

Indeed, Dishonored has a great cast of characters, with many traits that make them unique and interesting. I wanted the heroes to be happy, too. *sniff* …Well, the real heroes, I mean. ‘Cause the only no-good people I see in this pic would be Havelock, Pendleton and Martin (in low chaos, anyway).

I don't really consider him a loyalist as:

1) they had to kidnap him and threaten/persuade him to help them in the first place and kept him locked in a cage

2) he only helped piero in making the devices to kill/incapacitate Havelock's men when his own life was on the line— and after Havelock/Martin/Pendleton had betrayed/killed the other loyalists. at that point i don't really think the loyalists as an organization existed anymore.

3) my point: he never really joined up with the loyalists of his own accord, and they didn't trust him enough to not keep him in a cage. therefore, to my thinking = not really a loyalist. just a dude they were using for their own purposes

3) i honestly don't think i could have fit another person in this picture

not that sokolov's not a cool dude, just not a loyalist to my thinking. and the point of drawing this picture was to draw a happy-go-lucky "average night at the hound pits with the loyalists" to console myself for all the heartbreak
