Brownjobs by TerminAitor Brownjobs by TerminAitor
Being a criminal in Ankh Morpork is like being a cat in a dog pound!

This was great to work on, I enjoy giving face to the characters from the Discworld novels (Don't know what Discworld is? I can't believe it! Go and read it! Now!). I'm afraid I couldn't avoid the influence of Paul Kidby's art on this lot, but I tried to depict them as I imagine them. Do you recognize everybody? :)

Hope you like it!

EDIT: Woah, a Daily Deviation?! Thanks, that is a rad sunday morning surprise! :_D

Well... there's Angua and Vimes, Carrot, Colon, Nobby, Constable Visit, Detritus, Reg, the Golem... aww, shit I forget the name... and the name of the dwarf, the gargoyle and the tiny one xD
And I don't know alle their positions in English, because I read most of the Books only in German until now ;)

Goregeous, and I like how Detritus reflects his name! Minor comment, Nobby needs to be more nobbier. XD Though really this entire picture is incredible@

I love this image. It's wonderful, I wouldn't say the inspiration is Kidby, but closer to Disney's Hercules and Fosters Home for Imaginary Pets. It's a wonderful piece and you should be really proud.

huge grin when i saw this!! your version of cheery made me lol (he's wonderful!), i actually like your colon (haha) more than kidby's, and i don't think i've ever seen him draw the peacemaker. i've always imagined vimes as being trained in the vetenari school of blank-expressions, but the facial expression he has here totally shows what he would be thinking in such a situation XD

That's excellent. You know, it took me a second to recognize them as the Watch, but Detritus is unmistakable.

Angua is looking quite well, but they have a vampire in the ranks too now, Sally.

I've been reading the Watch story arc lately and this is nothing short of beautiful. I can identify all the characters right away without even thinking (exception: Visit took me a minute, I briefly forgot he was a character). Well-deserved DD.

Sam Vimes is probably my favorite Discworld character.

This is so awesome! I really like the forward motion of the whole thing, and the way you've depicted the characters. Let me see... Angua (squee!), Vimes, Carrot, Colon, Detritus, Nobby, someone I don't know, Reg Shoe(?), Cheery Littlebottom, Dorfl... yeah. That's about all I can do.

I want to make the shrieking girly sounds that bronies make when seeing a Luna deviation, but I don't think it would carry over as well to a Discworld piece.
This is a wonderful piece, fantastically catching the characters as well as the blending of grime and comedy that Pratchett invokes. As a guy who's gone through every Discworld novel five times in the past three years I give it ten out of ten Rincewinds!
(especially love Cheery and Visit in this piece. Magnificent!)
