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'!

Beautifully done, and I'm so glad you got to meet Sir Terry and give this to him.

That's a lot on your plate, so I understand that you can't commit to anything at this time. 

I was hoping to get some DW character standees made for the exhibit, and in my opinion your DW character depictions are among the best I've seen. They're well-done, artistic, believable, and instantly recognizable as the characters from the books. I also appreciate that they are your original work.

Unfortunately I don't have any budget, so I can't convince you to take it on as a commission, although I wish I could.

If you change your mind, or if you just want more information about the event or the exhibit, feel free to contact me. Best of luck to you with your studies and certification!

I was too.  I've met him twice since, still as amusing and witty as he was.

There will be a Great Discworld Gathering of fans at next year's WorldCon in Spokane, WA (called "Sasquan") in August 2015 (for Discworld Gathering announcement see it-bodes.blogspot.com/; for Sasquan see www.sasquan.org).

Is there any chance that you would be attending Sasquan or be willing to do some artwork for it? I'm putting together ideas for a Discworld exhibit there and would love to talk with you about it.

I, unfortunately, will be hip deep in getting dual certified in special and general education at that point, and so I don't know what my time will be allotted.  While it sounds lovely, I can't commit to such a large project at the moment.

Your edit in the description made this the best thing ever; and you did a fabulous job with the drawing, this is exactly how I picture them! I love that Carrot is just completely too big for his clothes, and Angua's so wonderfully self-conscious.
