KQ fanart - Life Donor by Akril15 KQ fanart - Life Donor by Akril15
I’m starting to think that my “fan creation” obsessions come in phases, and in between there is a lull in which I create a lot of random things with few common links. I don’t think I’m in between phases now.

Anyway, it’s Edgar from the King’s Quest series meeting his “donor” for the first time (the finished version of the second sketch in this image - [link]). I’d imagine that Edgar would be a little uncomfortable with shape-shifting and transfiguration after his various mishaps in the games, and finding out that this cat is now connected to him in a rather personal way is just a tad awkward.

I always found the nameless black cat in KQ7 strangely intriguing. She’s probably the only non-malevolent cat in the entire series, and she seems to know everything of consequence in the game as well. She knows what Rosella is seeking when she and Rosella meet, she tells her where the Troll King is, she knows of Valanice’s relationship to Rosella and advises the queen to go to Etheria in order to help save the kingdom, outlining the precise steps necessary to get there…makes me wonder whether she is more than just a simple black cat…

For some reason, the outfit I drew Edgar in looks strangely familiar. And this is probably the tenth shading experiment that hasn't turned out the way I hoped it would...

Eh, you'll get used to it, Edgar. Cats are nice. :) And in some countries, black cats are lucky!
This is a really nice picture. I love the detail and lighting you used.

Sorry for posting at DQ. I like the black cat....and the plot ideas are great... I smell a fanfic coming on. Like I said before I like Edgar's clothes, they're cool. Cats rock. And those little ghould brats need a good hard spanking.

I like how the light in the background looks like the extra life. :D And you're right, the cat was one of the more interesting characters in the game. I didn't really question it at the time, but now that you bring it up, it does make me wonder how that cat knows absolutely everything about what's going on...maybe the ghoul kids tried to kill it for some other reason, besides pulling a prank...

I think the shading looks good the way it is. The fabric looks solid and tactile, and it looks like real fabric. Really nice work on the hands, too.

Egad, I thought I made the effect too subtle for anyone to notice it!

Ooooh..."The Cat Who Knew Too Much!"

Thank you. As usual, though, those hands gave me pain and that fabric was rough for me to pull off.

...Oh geez, did I just say that?

I alomst didn't notice it...after all, that particular light effect is often used just to draw attention to the central characters without particularly meaning anything. It wasn't until about ten seconds before I typed the comment that the extra life looked like that too.

You never know, could be a plot thread hanging in there somewhere...

And it's not a pun if you didn't mean for it to be. :D
