Oh, my! And, here I think my meager photo-manip is 'good'. LOL This is awesome! The entire mood, the shots from different, and unusual, angles, even the characters, they all work so well together! This is sure out of my league, but, I admire the hell out of what you have created!

Thank you so much. It's nice to know people read it and that they enjoy it. Don't sell yourself short, I had a look at your gallery and you have a unique style. You should try your hand at motion books, the software is free online and we can help you in our group:motionbookartists.deviantart.c…www.facebook.com/MotionBookArt…;

And here is my latest book if your interested: www.madefire.com/motion-books/… (Latest version is slightly buggy on 2 pages, not sure why - sorry about that, asked the MF guys to have a look)

Welcome. Probably the best place to get info is our discord group discord.gg/m2TwPW2 . That’s a motion book community group.

This is very compelling for a short story. The danger of Greed was present right from the word go.
