YAY Early LoB!!!!
She is gonna mess those dudes UP!
I can’t wait! *flits around all excited and junk*
I agree, Pixie–Shiarra is seriously going to pwn them. I hope.
i cannot believe its whensday.
Yay! Early LOB!
But wait! How did the orcs come up behind Blue Girl-Faerie-Frost Queen-Shiarra without some sort of orc alarm being sounded by Giles and Frank first?
Is this where we see Gnome 12 do a Yoda-esque ass-kicking of some orcs?
She’s gonna french fry them? (Or rather, ice them?)
If Warrix was a Pizza Delivery, you’d have the pizza just as you hung up the phone. The guy doesn’t mess around.
It’s what he’d put ON the pizza that worries me.
I kinda feel sorry for all the lackies. They’re gonna need a Special Weapon and/or Significant Backup or they’re all gonna end up as goop on the walls.
Speaking of walls … I don’t think there are gonna be any left in short order. It’s now a used-to wuz tavern. I shed a tear for all the ale about to not be drunk …
Actually, upon second read … how many lackies have a noticeable life-expectancy after speaking the name of their Underlord out loud? Not just bad form, but breaks several rules in the Lacky Handbook.
Yeah yeah … Shiarra looks pretty incredible.
So, anyone got any suggestions fro a name for that reeallllyy creeepppy goblin? That thing gives me nightmares just knowing it’s out there.
Bored of the Rings had the 9 Nosedrul. How about carrotschnoz?
Parsnippus? Mr. Zucchini? Zuccinius? The Green Goblinanna?
Odous the Odiferous, aka “Picknose”. (“Odous” is Greek for “tooth”.)
And “Picknose”, of course, is one of my inevitable unintentional puns. Or was that used already in ELFQUEST? Yes, I believe it was. “Pikenose”, then?
Picknose? Yup classic Dwarfquest, er Elfquest…
Pulaski proboscis? Pulaski Beak? Adze Beak? Sniper Snoot? Nuclear Nostrils? Bludgeon Beak? Horn Beak? Pickle Horn? Pickled Zuccini? Longitudinal Loogie? Loogie Louis? Torpedo Tom? GMO?
How about just calling him “Snot?”
or how about
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . LIPSHITZ
Tom Tooth. There. That was easy.
Tom Tooth works.
S-Nott, of the Greenish Goblin Corps? Tom Dumb? Carbine Schnoz? Michael Jackson? Green of Snottingham? The Cuspid Cucumber? (Referring to the teeth and the nose). Cuspidor? (A play on the cuspid teeth and the Portuguese use of that word.) I still like “Snot” best, given the goblins/orcs demeanor…
On a different topic, look up John 5:29 in the Greek. You will note something interesting…
@NABU-etc: Yes, interesting but often very misunderstood. Something that should be kept in mind all the same by those who so blatantly ignore Matthew 5:27-30. (Apparently the Sefer ha-Beritot never got to Terragard.)
How bout “Septic” ?
that brings back memories. we lived in the sticks when i wee lad, and everybody had a septic tank.
our neighbor was considered to be rich, not because he had two cars, but two septic tanks.
I grin like that sometimes. Bad things usually start to happen soon after.
In other news, However will the gang get out of this one? I realize that Shiarra is probably all kinds of badass in the magic dept. but can she get off a spell before the goblins rush her? Then again I suppose that getting Frank to sneeze might give her enough time, if it doesn’t solve the problem outright.
well that’s quite an “increasement” since last time:
lol, thanks, Stef. Yeah, after I draw a character a few times, it becomes even more comfortable, and certain things start to loosen up (and not just in a cleavage way). Thanks for the link too!
The fairy in the first panel is a little strange. The front part of her looks like she’s standing up straight, and the torso and aft quarters are a 90 degree angle from the rest of her.
Thank you for the feedback, Nabuquduriuzhur, love that you looked that closely. It’s funny, because I actually thought the same thing after I posted it. So I re-sketched the pose in parts of the relationship to the body and how it would curve, etc. While it is definitely an exaggerated pose, for some reason, it seems to work like it (in an exaggerated way) could be feasible… however, you’re also right, it’s a totally screwy pose. LOL
I’m gonna hate myself for even daring to say this, David, but my first thought was that as a fairy, Shiarra apparently is used (as my late mother would’ve put it) to “going through life bass-ackwards” (sic).
Eh, I would just ignore it on account of her being magic.
Did anyone else notice that her arm tattoos are more intricate and involve more colors?
What does it mean??!! ^_^
That’s easy, magic tattoos.
Yes! And continuing my thought from my earlier post on the tatoos:
If a “simple” creature like a cuttlefish can make a dazzling display that looks like a Las Vegas marquee without using any magic, imagine what a powerful magical being can do! Swirling and racing patterns, rhythmically changing colors!
Cuttlefish seem to use their skin display to hypnotize their prey. Perhaps Shiarra can do the same thing to the Goblins with her tatoos (but she probably won’t because it isn’t visually dramatic, especiallly without animation).
You’d be AMAZED at what can be done in “still animation”.
In fact it’s probably a truism that if you can’t make it look good on the storyboard, you can’t make it look good in animation.
This is the storyboard. Remember what happened when Bill was first shown as going Billzerk. Several panels were used, but ONE was really all it took to convey the Billzaster.
Ahhh, the local Welcome Wagon has arrived…..
…and are about to be SERVED on it.
