Inktober 20 Death by Loopydave Inktober 20 Death by Loopydave
I COULD MURDER A CURRY
- Mort

Lots of quotes from Discworld Death, but I couldn't really go past this one.

It's part of Terry Pratchett's genius that he could make the grim reaper one of literatures more fascinating characters.

Gosh, I love Death so much, as creepy as to non-discworlders it may sound :)

Hahaha! Death is one of Terry's best characters... something a little hard to explain to anyone who hasn't read his books :D
Cheers!

I love Death's library's description of the dangerous and non-dangerous flora and fauna of XXX (not..., really NOT Australia!) in THE LAST CONTINENT..., the former being a huge pile of books that bury poor Death, the latter being a single sheet of paper reading 'some of the sheep'!

Haha! Being an Australian and a Pratchett fan, I have often referred to that scene myself :D

Death is one of my favourite characters, and excellent rendition.

Some authors write that one memorable character.. and if they are lucky, maybe two.
Terry wrote so many of them... and yes, his Death is one of the best.

Like you, so many wonderful Death quotes, but this one definitely sticks in my mind the most.
Perhaps the scene of the Four Horseman outside the bar in Sourcery.

"My steed has carried armies. My steed has carried cities. Yea, he hath carried all things in their
due time," said Death, "but he's not going to carry you three."

Haha! Great quote!

Terry DID like his four horsemen of the Apocalypse: they road out in at least four of his books that I can remember.... Sourcery, Thief of time, Interesting Times, Good Omens...

Sourcery always cracks me up with the Four Horseman, with ordering their drinks ("A Bloody Mary."
This voice made a simple drinks order sound like the opening of hostilities.) and then drunk outside
the inn after Death rides off.

Gotta love Death and the other Horseman of the Apocralypse! :D

Brilliant, and a great character, you are so right about Pratchett's genius in making death fascinating.  I love his perspective of the world (the Hogfather is proof enough)

Yes, most definitely a great movie (and book, though I watched the movie first, it was what got me interested in the discworld). By the way did you here that BBC America just green lit a series based on The City Watch.

“I? KILL? said Death, obviously offended. CERTAINLY NOT. PEOPLE GET KILLED, BUT THAT'S THEIR BUSINESS. I JUST TAKE OVER FROM THEN ON. AFTER ALL, IT'D BE A BLOODY STUPID WORLD IF PEOPLE GOT KILLED WITHOUT DYING, WOULDN'T IT?” 

Ahh, look at that friendly face you’ve drawn! Love 
I just love how Terry Pratchett was able to make Death such a lovable character, pointing out the very issues we mortals struggle with. And he loves cats so he can’t be such a bad guy,  right?

Spot on!!

One of my favorite scenes in the series, is when the Four Horsemen of the Apocralypse are at the inn/pub and War's kids, Terror, Panic, and Clancy are mentioned.... Seems no one in their right mind ticks off Clancy. Rather like no one in their right mind ticks off Death's granddaughter............

A fitting tribute to the late Sir Terence David John Pratchett OBE. BTW did you realise there was an alternative meaning to "DEATH of the DISCWORLD" seeing as with Terry's passing there will be no more Discworld novels? That aside great work as always. (PS any chance of a DEATH's FAMILY PORTRAIT?)

I realised it could be taken as quite ominous as I was typing it... but Discworld will never die as long as there are people out there reading the books :)

Inktober is almost over and I don't think I'll get to them before the month is up... but do plan to produce some more disc world drawings in the coming months (just more spasmodically) so I may get to them then.

The trouble with the DISCWORLD's DEATH is all this talking in upper case. It's not the idea behind it just that I can only think of one real life voice that really suits, the UK actor Brian Blessed and I can't get him outta my head now.

I know that guy: It's Bill Door!! Yet he also looks a bit like the Hogfather...

So love the "Reaper Man" book. That ending is just too beautiful, and... how can a funny book be so deep?

“No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away...”
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

Thank you, Terry, may your ripples never end.

And thank you, Dave, for reminding me of the wonderful Disc world. Great work, you really did these characters justice. Amazing.

I just re-read Reaper Man and I had forgotten what a wonderful book it was... and that's one of my favourite quotes from it.
