Back to some hero worship drawings today. This is another of Denis Loubet‘s illustrations. This one is particularly from Ultima IX. I always enjoyed killing monsters in UIX and then picking off the vultures when they came to feed on the carcass. Repeat ad nauseam.
No matter what you call it, this drawing turned out creepy as shit. Did you know that a group of octopi is called a consortium?

Because of that silly optionally captioned intro you can watch in Serpent Isle, I always see this in my mind when the Guardian is making his way into Britannia.
Please tell me that I’m not the only one who got the weird feeling that John’s dad in Homestuck and Mr. Pipe from Ren & Stimpy could be the same person. Either way, here they are. References are from screen caps from the rubber nipple salesmen episode of Ren & Stimpy and from various pages of Homestuck.
Also, this was another one I actually started with pencil.
Had a mandatory working lunch today from 11:00 to 1:00. no chance to draw anything since we were busy. :/
This is an emotionally spurred sketch, just like Grr Arg was. When two people’s lives grow together, gracefully untying those connections is tedious, tiring, and difficult. Some people choose just to hack the hole mess off, but that leaves a large wound that needs to heal. Either path probably takes the same amount of time.
I ended up using the very last drop of ink from my favorite writing pens in making this today. I just didn’t feel like using the Zigs for some reason. I used some color! Ideally, I would have made the left blue and right green, but I didn’t have the tools available while at work.

Yesterday during lunch, I was conversing with some of the new hires about the drawings and calligraphy I do around the office. I asked a particular person what she wanted to have drawn on her white board and she said,
“A tiger! Or a horse!”
I struggled to come up with a silly portmanteau for tiger and horse, but it wasn’t happening. Then the other person we were sitting with blurted out,
This, of course, cracked my shit up and filled me with ridiculous mental images. Turns out, there already is a somewhat popular Thorse image out there, but I like mine better.
If I could do it again, I would changed the text to “I didn’t smite it” instead of “I won’t smite it.” *shrug* For those of you that don’t get the reference, first of all, shame on you. Second of all, here, watch this.
Why is that octopus smacking a fish? And why is he wearing a backpack and a headband? There are reasons. 😉 You’ll see hopefully before 2013.
Also, I did a silly drawing in a morning meeting: Bonus Derp

BigBadOrc always wants me to draw him a platypus ninja. So…here’s one. In all of its cute glory, taking a break. What a let down, eh?
I (finally) discovered Homestuck (as if it needs more free advertisement…) last night and I’ve wanted to get back to it all morning at work. To help satiate my longings, I drew a silly, unrelated, and random sketch on a Captchalogue Card. *shrug*
