I made a little red frame, and for the Nightlife ones (double paintings) you can decide to use my red frame for a modern feel or use the Maxis brown frame and give them a little something vintage. They look good with both.
The drawings may seem rather simple and with few details, but it's been a sloppy and difficult technique. A piece of white cardboard has been covered with a layer of charcoal; then the highlights have been added by erasing strategical parts of the charcoal and a medium tone got added in proper areas with pencil. I've had charcoal powder in my lungs and stomach for weeks after making the set, lol.
Real life versions of 3 of them are still available; framed and under plastic. Contact me if you're interested.
All files have descriptive file names for easy sorting and I separated the upload so you can be selective right away.
Thanks to Numenor for his tutorial on object recolors. Very useful!
