The Garden of Delights by JesIdres The Garden of Delights by JesIdres
Discworld again! After reading Jingo and laughing for several minutes at this scenario, I had to draw the scene Carrot was alluding to:

'Mr. Wazir sells books on Widdy street, 'said Carrot. 'Only I asked him for some books on Klatch, you see, and one of the ones he gave me was 'The Perfumed Allotment, ot, The Garden of Delights'. And I didn't mind because the Klatchians invented gardens, sir, so I thought it might be a very useful cultural insight. Get inside the Klatchian mind, as it were. Only it, er, it... er... well it wasn't about gardening... er...' He started to blush. 'Yes yes, all right, bring it back of you like, 'said Mr. Wazir, looking a little derailed. 'I just thought you ought to know in case you hadn't... in case you sold.. well... it could shock the impressionable, you know, a book like that...' 'Yes fine-' 'Corporal Angua was so shocked she couldn't stop laughing,' Carrot went on.

I need to find Mr. Pratchett and complain- I can't read on the T anymore, the giggling causes the other passengers to look at me funny.

I particularly like Angua's expression here; I redrew it about 8 times to get it right. Carrot's face had to be redraw with my tablet in the computer when I realized it didn't have the right 'innocently confused' look that I figure Carrot wears 60 percent of the time.

I had originally wanted to draw the scene out of the Fifth Elephant with Carrot biting a lead wolf, but I gave up before I began.

Carrot and Angua are PTerry's. I only wished I owned them.

Hahaha! XD Poor Carrot...his facial expression is perfect! :) Angua's expression is also spot on. This is one of my many favourite scenes in Jingo. I still burst out laughing whenever I read this part.

This is really good! I know what it's like to be stared at for laughing out loud at a good book, my classmates are always giving me funny looks when I start giggling at break or form time, because Sir Terry Pratchett's books are always hilarious.

Boy, how I love this scene.
Could you draw the scence of Carrot dressing as "Mr Spuddy Face" alias "Herr Kartoffel", too?
