Ahhhh… it all makes sense now… (the bickering)
Next Episode: Monday, December 6th – sketchblog updates daily! And give it up to Don for the excellent colors as always!
yeah she does have a nice pair of …. wings….
Umm, Boss (david).. it’s spelled cannon, not canon….
>From I can work out, the second version (the one you used..) refers to technical differences between movie/game/etc genres….
Oh & is it my imagination or does “slyvia” appear bigger (approx. same size as Giles/Gnome 12) in the last panel, or is that merely you playing with our sense of perspective again?
Hmm, without meaning to be too crude, it would seems “Giles/Gnome 12″ is copping quite an eyeful in panel 1…. methinks I’ll just leave it at, shall I? lol
Fantastic work from both yourself & The Wizard of Coloring aka Don, with this strip, Dave… Thumbs up!
Cheers & Thranx
Sylvia it is then!
Giles is the loose cannon? Silvia’s the one rubbing her business all over some Smurf’s roof!
an “X” that explain everything!!!
I wonder if she had to have a gastric bypass to get that body?
OK, that was just me venting. Sorry. LOL
Is it just me or shouldn’t we see Bill some where in the background. They are supposed to be watching him.
And no gnome or man can resist a great pair of … Wings.
Bloody brilliant! It’s true that there can’t be a HAPPY platonic relaitonship between men and women! I knew it!!!!
Hmm…watcher…Giles…somebody is a Buffy fan
Sylvia’s available assets to reign in a loose cannon like Giles are clearly apparent. Rule# 34 saves the day again!
And we also now know who watches the Watch Gnomes: the Bureau of Fairie Affairs. My only question, Sylvia: did you ever love him, or was it just a perk of the job ..? Ouch. “Stubby.” Coming from a gal half your size, doesn’t seem like she’s talking about your height.
Evil fairy …
Sylvia have you met Pibgorn?
@NovaCatt – Thanks, this was a fun strip to color. Sylvia is smaller than Giles, it’s just that she was closer to the camera in this panel (and panel 1) so she appears larger
Yes, I am sure it is your wings he can’t resist, Sylvia.
Plus her huge… track of land
Sorry got distracted, huge tracks of land
His name is GILES!!!!!!!!!! *dances under Don hat* Even if the cutesy fairy is named a boring name, I have Giles and I’m happy with that.
She’s Awesome! Ballsy and scathing. I love her…And will never refer to her by that name.
Who’s watching the Bureau of Fairie Affairs, then?
Yeah.. the wings…
@Jazz – Shouldn’t that be “tracts” of land?, but NO SINGING, we’ll have none of that.
YEAH! Gnome 12 has an actual name now. And that name is Giles. I was kind of expecting something a little more grand and mystical, but then again he is the watcher of Bill.
@SAGG- That’s a good question. Care to enlighten us, Don or David?
I see buns…I mean wings! yes, wings! XD
@Fijiman – Gnome12 is his Syndicate designation (like 007), Giles is his common name and his Gnomish name is probably much longer. (*this is in no way official, but it sounds pretty good*)
It’s nice to know what their real names are. ^^ So does Sylvia dress like that to keep men off-balance (especially Giles, in this case), or is it usual fairie garb?
Gnome 12, Gnome 12… Hmm, as secret agent codenames go, I’ve heard worse. ^^ Kind of reminds me a program I think is called ‘Get Smart’.
yeah, show me a great set of wings and i will come. heh heh.
OMG ! Nice pair of … wings
Great third panel, David, both in drawings and in text lines.
Kudos to Don for colours
Ah, Giles and Sylvia are great names indeed
NovaCatt – th anks for the Cannon catch – OOPS! Fixed it immediately. I normally pride myself on good spelling, but it happens. lol
Thanks eveyone – so glad you like this one! I was quite proud of the art and coloring. And I love the lil’ fairie. I’ve noticed yet again my penchant for strong, sassy female characters. What’s that about?
And thank you all for the name suggestions. I read them all (as I read/approve all the comments before they go up) and ultimately I confess I decided to go with Sylvia. For some reason I enjoy the “normal” names sometimes, I think it has some humor to it, but also Sylvia was the immediate name that came to mind. All the names of all the characters reveal themselves to me almost immediately for one reason or another.
Giles sort of, um, grew on me, with a tweak in spelling. (Pixiiiiiie)
And DOn nailed it on the Gnome Syndicate/name designations. I’ll wager you’d never be able to pronounce Giles or Sylvia’s given family names!
Someone help me keep Sir Mix-A-Lot tied up. He’s trying to get loose and compose a rap about Sylvia!
Great as usual but one little continuity slip… that Elastoplast/BandAid should have been higly visible on Sylvia’s left calf still, but seemed to have dissappeared…
Ah. Excellent as always but what happened to the bandaid that should strill be visiible, low down her left leg? We sdhould be told..
errr… David, I think i do understand why you trook the long post to Pixie down yesterday (off-topic, I know) but I haven’t been barred from posting or anything, have I? I’m just not seeing my posts appearing here…
Spotted it shortly after you posted it… (I’m something of an amateur proofreader, so it stood like a sore thumb to me…. )
I saw the update msg over on FaceBook, so popped on over to read it when I spotted the typo gremlins had gotten loose…. rofl
Yeah, you’re absolutely right about mistakes happening, it just goes to show we’re only human….
Hiya Mr The Wizard of Coloring,
Yeah, I had a feeling david was playing with our sense of perspective again with regards to sylvia….
As per usual, you’ve done a fantastic job with the colouring..
Keep up the fantastic work gents, this is one of my favourite web-comics.
Awesome job on the strip. I love the new fairie. Sylvia sounds perfectly ‘upper management’ to me :p
@AgProv, All comments need to be moderate by Dave. Sometimes it takes a minute. Dave doesn’t normally do too much Censoring that is unwarranted.
@ Dave Ohhhh that li voice in your ear? Yeahhhh about that…*flits away hiding the itty bitty megaphone.* Wasn’t me!
And am I correct in thinking the elastoplast *wink at AgProv* is on the left let which is pictured in the first panel but only the left side. Perhaps it’s on the right sides and thus is hidden?
Sylvia has quite a few interesting pairs… probably including pairs of inside straights when she played cards with Giles and the boys on Saturday nights.
I am living proof you’re wrong, Derrath… Just for the record. I always got along better with most girls and women platonically than with most boys and men. But that might be a temperamental thing, as I was also more interested non-platonically in women than even the usual ridiculous male average (from all I could observe).
Sylvia works. A common, perhaps overly popular name for those living in the woodlands, much like Mary in (shall I say) Catholic countries. I’ll bet every third female Smurf is named Sylvia.
hate to see her go, but love to watch her fly away. lol
