These color photographs show the troops getting ready for the D-Day assault at an British port. Most of the color stills in the National Archives show the preparations rather than the invasion.

You can see more color photographs on the Media Matters blog.

An upgraded version of my rink dink drawing of the Rotten. Basically, I put more effort into the coloring and lighting, which by far is what I’m the worst at. I tried giving him a more 3D appearance, but as I stated, I’m awful with coloring and such, so I didn’t do very well. Still, this is as complete as this is getting for a long time, so I’ll call it finished. Thanks to everyone who’s shown love for it and support for me. It warms my shriveled and pained heart.And yes, Lemonfont is still there.
