Shedding Light in the Darkness by JesIdres Shedding Light in the Darkness by JesIdres
One of the coolest scenes from Thud, in my opinion. Captain Carrot shows the grags that although he might not look like a dwarf, but he can dance with deepest dwarfs. The idea of him lit up by squirming, glowing vurms stuck in my head for ages.

I was studying some of the tutorials on coloring, so I used this to try some new techniques. I think this may have been my best job yet.

Thank you! I keep worrying about how it will turn out- I work on a laptop screen so I shows up differently on anything else.

That's cool. Very cool. I love the lighting effect you've got there. Just one thing - I think that the Vurms could glow a little bit more. Apparently there's something called a "dodge tool" which is good for things like that. And I found a BRILLIANT glow tutorial at [link] I don't know if it would help.

Hrm, I didn't want them glowing that much, honestly. I wanted a darkish picture, but thanks!

Sorry! I like the way he's positioned - the "trust me, take my hand" makes him look like some kind of angel.

That *is* atmospherical. Wonderful coloring! And you are right, that scene was impressive.
I love those scenes where people run right into it because they think he's stupid.

Heh, I have to say, first time I looked at this I thought it was Vimes. Which leads on to two things:

1. That's an amazing job you've done there. The half-light is just right - the kind of gloom where things are only recognisable to a certain extent. And the reflection on the breastplate is amazing.

2. Argh! More plotbunnies!
