Group Photo from "No Fright Nite-Lite Co."

Here is the big group painting with all of the bad guy characters from Nightforce. I spent over 7 hours on this painting reworking and fidgeting different aspects of both the environment and the characters. I'm fairly happy with what I got but I do think i would have been happier if I had got this result in half the time. I feel like this was too slow for so much time against the grindstone. I think that metaphor makes sense...it's late as I write/post this.
