I have been doing links for suggestions but I have been running out of spare time to draw them in. And then I keep going away for weekends and not having the time to up load new ones. I've got about 6 that I have finished including several of the Drinkies. smiley - smiley

LOL - well I don't recall anyone mentioning that the pic had to be an exact pictorial equivalent of the name smiley - winkeye

And I have no idea what sizes or dimensions are involved - though I'd guess the WWW standard smaller is better would always applysmiley - smiley

OOoooohh.... pureed starlings!
I hadn't thought of using Starship Titanic stuff. Good idea... I've got the game, and I'll do some screengrabs.
As long as TDV don't mind...

You can find TDVs official view on copyright here http://www.tdv.com/html/heavy_legal_stuff.html - Don't Panic its not as hard to read as the name suggests.
It'd probably be a good idea to drop a line on Petas page ( http://www.h2g2.com/U24 ) asking if its OK smiley - smiley

I did that over the name of the F&F, it wasn't really an issue but I just wanted to be sure. smiley - smiley

Yep they seem like a pretty understanding bunch. I'm not aware of any fan type things having any problems with TDV unless they were trying to make money out of it.

And its always best to ask.

Hi there - great Smilies!

Drinks smilies - I would be interested in these. I don't suppose you have got a pretzel smiley? I would be very interested in one of those. Or maybe a nice mince pie. Email me at [email protected] to talk about smilies - I am interested in the details. smiley - smiley
