I just saw both the Constable's helmet and the Brass Embassy card art update in my hand.

I'm digging most of these. It's a little jarring right now, mostly because of the "something is different!" factor, but also because it makes the art style of Fallen London more fractured. I know the Church is more conservative than the rest of London, but that vicar really needs a haircut y'all. I would absolutely be on-board with more of these.

I appreciate that some of these are just functional, workaday icons, and they don't "pop" more than they need to. The Expedition Supplies icon has already settled into my lizard brain as just The Way Things Are, and I can barely remember it looking any other way (proximity to the Nadir probably helps). Meanwhile, portraits like the Henchman or the Constable are doing their job of being more noticeable and grabbing your attention.

I feel the higher resolution makes palette swaps more noticeable. Specifically, souls and amber. Having the same picture with different colors works better when everything's cartoon-y, it feels a little out of place with more realistic icons. (Also because I was staring at ambers yesterday I noticed the backgrounds actually had different gradients, which helps break them up visually.)

I noticed that the Hallowmas upgrades of the Henchman have not been updated. I'm not expecting them to be, I just really really liked how the companion art from that year was derived from the originals, and now the connection is broken a bit. Not entirely, because the pose is still similar, but they're not clearly "the same guy with a cross" and "the same guy but infernal" like they used to be.

Overall a welcome update, and keep up the good work!

the art updated, I spent the first few minutes screaming as all my comfortable muscle memory got erased. This is serious culture shock I cant deal with it the souls the favours in high places all of it. If you'll excuse me I'm going to break down in a corner screaming THE ART THE ART THE ART THE ART THE ART THE ART THE ART THE ART THE ART over and over again

The "Give a Gift" card also has new art--I don't like that one so much--it kind of looks like a gentleman zombie. I'll add it to this post when the card comes up for me again.

Souls, Tales of Terror, some of the Nightmare cards look different too as does the Boast Wildly option with the Amanuensis card.

These newly updated pictures are more like the works appearing in "sunless sky", they are real, but they do not match the style of most of the works that are still used in London at present. The details in these paintings cannot be discerned at all, because they have been reduced to less than one centimeter in size)
Maybe one day I will get used to these pictures.
But now the exquisite details on these new pictures can't make it more advantageous than the original icons (because on a mobile phone with a screen size less than 5 inches, you can't see what is drawn in the small icons at all. )

Clay men got a big upgrade:



New art on the generous widow card "for the sake of appearances" option:



From "The Life of Crime" card:





From "An Afternoon of Good Deeds"







From the "ConnectedBig Grinocks" card we get some very impressive new wave art:




(new art of waves, that is, not guys with skinny ties and too much hairspray)

This might be new as well, though it's less detail rich. At any rate, it's new to the Docks card.




New Question for the Overgoat:



New Aeolian Scream when I fail:



New map art used for the Conscience of Empire quality:



Mrs. Plenty's anatomy demonstration just got more educational:



Beneath the Neath just got scarier, too!



Madame Shoshana can help with your art as long as its MUA:



New art for Mr. Inch (who was badly out of date)




Not sure how I feel about hunting dangerous game now, though...



New correspondence art is pretty nice. And more varied!





As is the art used for Scholar of Correspondence:




Baseborn and Fowlingpiece and the Great Downward Engineering Company both got upgrades:





New art for Favors in High Places:



Can't recall for sure if the Master Jewel Thief is new art or been around for a while; the Celebrated Artist's Model, sadly, does not have new art.



Souls definitely look more impressive and unnerving now!



My colleague at the university may have a problem, but it's not with the art for her books:



My Louche Devil definitely has learned how to throw the right kind of Society Dinner (bow-chicka-wow-wow)!



This is fun. Kinda like a scavenger hunt. I gotta poke around and see what other new ones have showed up!

Yeah, that's taking squid a bit too literally IMO.

On the one hand, it's gorgeously illustrated and gets across why Londoners hate them so much. Really sells that slick sea wetness, while the old Rubbery art practically looked like a plushie Rubbery. Personally I definitely prefer the new look, the little unnecessary squid flaps are the cherry on top.

On the other hand, I can also understand how many people could be attached to the cute Rubbery look.

EDIT: On a second look it appears the illustration for Shake 'hands'? option in the Slime and Amber: The Rubbery Men card uses the older, more adorable (in my opinion) Rubbery art. Not sure how intentional that is.

I like this art for itself, but it just does not blend well with the earlier cartoony style. They're going to have to change every single existing image to make this work, I fear.

Gotta say, for the first time, I really hate almost all of this art, especially the souls. They were so mournful and sad and strange before, like alchemical homunculi. Now they're generic angry ghost faces. I especially dislike how angular and sharp everything looks, especially with the bright white highlights around the edges. The amber is sharp, the glyphs are sharp, the clay men are jagged, and it all looks... ugly. The Jewel thief does look better, I'll say, and he doesn't have the highlight, which is a plus.
