Well, the Inn Room image was kind of a nightmare, but it might work...

Master innkeeper, I wish to register a complaint. There is a hole in my chimney and a deer keeps poking his head through the hole and watching me while I sleep...

...but a little editing in Paint Shop Pro should make it obvious that it's a deer head mounted on the wall.
"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax — of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot — and whether pigs have wings."

I hated the way that image came out.

So, I threw it back in and fixed some issues with it.  Hopefully this one will be better.

About 90% of the NPCs in Treasures of the Savage Frontier are male.  Given how nice some of the artwork is, I wondered if, as an experiment, I could gender flip any of the NPCs to get some different results.

In this case, I took the Tavern Patron above and made a female version (and also changed the color of their shirt).  I also did as many opposite things as I could to see what would happen (for example, she is smiling and he is frowning).  The results were quite nice.

When I'm done with Treasures of the Savage Frontier, I might do a couple of extra female versions of some of the male NPCs for those that want them as a bonus collection.  I wouldn't mind hearing what people think of this idea.  It would give a pool of similar artwork with some variations that someone could use in a module for consistency.

Anyway, here's the example...

Great work - I just compared some of the original images with these versions and am really impressed. It's also some fun to search for the small hints which indicate the AI. In case of the temple priest, e.g., my wife noted how the finger is linked to the medal and how the earings seem to blend with the hair. But these are all things that at least I don't see at first view... Very impressive.  :like:

I'm back from an extended vacation.  Figured it was time to knock out some more of these NPCs.

Just for kicks, I added a gender flip to one of the guards (since they're all male).

Here's a few more.

The Rowdy Tavern scene was a nightmare.  Probably still a ton of oddities in that one...

I think the Rowdy Tavern came out remarkably well!   :thumbsup:

Pictures are getting more difficult (except for the guard, who is always easy to do).
