Who will be actually DRAWING the game? You could ask Paco Vink. He's drawings were great. It's too bad the MI comic he was making is dead and buried. But I serously think that Paco can do it. If you want to. I'm just giving some suggestions to help you. Good luck with everything, I hope it's all coming together really well.
Paco's artwork IS very good indeed. However, I believe the reason that his comic has all but ceased (as he came on the boards and mentioned) was because he was just too, too busy with things in his personal life and such. Not only do I not wish to burden him with any more crowding of responsibilities in his life, I don't want to have to essentially wait around for him to get to it and such, ya know? It's not like he has the incentive of being employed under me or anything. I'll be doing the artwork myself. I've done my share of doodling virtually all my life, and study greatly the artwork of the games (especially CMI). In fact, I've just recently been reading up on Bill Tiller's interviews and other resources that I have for acheiving the right feel and tone for the artwork in this series. I'm never one to brag, and so I won't go claiming that my work will be NEARLY as beautiful as CMI's, for example, or even as good as Paco's, but I think it will be more than sufficient, and overall satisfying given the conditions of the project
Oh and by the way, what does SS stand for?
Well, in this
context (not referring to Hitler's secret police
), it's: Steam Ship, or Sail Ship. And HMS (if you didn't know) is: Her Majesty's (as in the Queen of England) Ship.
