How did this not get into the monthly top ten!

Perkele (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/7/2011 07:08

Oh, "Guards! Guards!", I remember reading that.. Awesome job, nice interpretation of the characters.

ThomasJH (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/5/2011 02:34

awesome, love the face (on the right)

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/5/2011 02:05

@Jim16; fixed!! Guess I was sleepy or something :)

Damian (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/4/2011 09:10

@Gecimen, thanks. I'll have to read that one.  Btw, Jeremy hasn't posted in this thread :P You had me a bit confused.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/4/2011 05:12

@Jim16; Guards! Guards!

What a lovely book it was. Excellent piece, too. I just wish Carrot had long hair as in the book cover.

By the way in this scene Sergeant Colon is trying to reduce his chance to shoot the Dragon from his unknown weak spot to one in a million so that his lucky arrow will do the job (at least he thinks so).

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/4/2011 01:49

Love this piece! top 10 material, 7/7!

Sippy_Cup (Level 5 Trash) @ 5/3/2011 18:12

Why not give the guy on the right side an ear?.. you did well on the other guy's ear.

Damian (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/3/2011 13:18

 Oh, had no idea this was Terry pratchett inspired. I'll read the description next time. Which book?

Jabberwock (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/3/2011 10:26

This plan was used one time in another Universe!

And it works!

Lackey (Level 4 Ensign) @ 5/3/2011 10:11
