For Mr. Pratchett by JesIdres For Mr. Pratchett by JesIdres
Today I go to the signing for Thud at Harvard Square. I decided I wanted to give him a picture- I abuse his characters enough, I feel I owe him. I'm horribly nervous- this isn't my best work, but I tried. The quote is my all favorite line in Thud; but no worries, it's not spoilerific. Just confirming a little bit we've all known. So don't worry, you non-US folks.

I took 4 hours on the line work/idea, 4-5 hours for coloring. Pilot fineliner, TRIA, Prismacolor, watercolor pencils and one copic marker (I was desperate for browns- stupid uniforms!)

I have to say if I get my knackers up, I am going to ask if there are puppies in Carrot and Angua's future. But I doubt I'll have the courage....


EDIT!: HE SAID YEEEEEEEEEES! YESYESEYESYES!!!!!

And I did give it to him! And he liked it! He's putting it on his Fridge. :faint:



Discworld, Carrot Ironfoundersson, Angua von Uberwald (C) PTerry

I'll be check all day DeviantArt, so give me your opinions- I can edit while waitin'!

Practice, play with them, and I bet you can.

I love this picture - I'm just re-reading men at arms at the moment when they first meet and this picture matches my imagination of them more than any others I've seen. Also so cool you gave it to TP :)

Not for certain, but he implied it. This, however, was before his diagnosis.
