Looks great Sean, love the color scheme -- did you use Dr. Ph Martins Watercolor Inks for this?

Awesome art..but damn I hated that version of the Long Goodbye (even though Gould did a great job)

Gould's Marlowe was, I thought, the greatest portrayal of the character's self-loathing, brass, and smart-assery. The decision to play Marlowe's pointed observations as mumbled thoughts to himself was very smart, as it allowed a lot of the book's monologue gems into the film. It's a shame the movie doesn't exactly... work very well? I could watch the opening half-hour, before the plot really takes hold, over and over, but the weird murder-not murder thing feels really odd to me. Though it's fun to spot one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's earliest film roles.
