Vultures! -or- How Did a Bird Get the Sigil of Justice?

Reference: Vulture

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.

Homestuck: John’s Dad -or- Ren & Stimpy: Mr. Pipe?

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.

Two Lives Intertwined -or- OMG Color?!

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.

Mr. Thorse

References: Mr. Horse (of course), Thor’s Helmet, Mjölnir 1, Mjölnir 2

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.
