Inktober day07: Mustrum Ridcully by Loopydave Inktober day07: Mustrum Ridcully by Loopydave
“Ridcully the Brown did speak to the birds.  In fact he shouted at birds, and what he normally shouted was ‘Winged you, yer  bastard!”
-Terry Pratchett, Moving Pictures

Archchancellor of Unseen University, Mustrum Ridcully - a man who does much for rare species, primarily making sure they stay that way.

On the other hand Mustrum Ridcully, as head of the college of wizards, had made it clear in polite but firm ways that he could turn him into a small amphibian and, indeed, start jumping around the room on a pogo stick.

–Interesting Times

Loving this Discworld series, and Ridcully's probably my favourite of those characters after the Family Death. I was always a little disappointed that we never got a full Ridcully/Susan team-up story, despite them bouncing off each other from time to time.

I'm with you there... I loved the interplay between them in 'Hogfather' and it made me want more!

I actually inked him twice... over inked the first time and then realised it needed less not more.

If I didn't know any better I would almost think these character names are made up, but if you really do name your son Mustrum then that kid is in for some major league teasing.

Terry Pratchett was great with names... but yes, Mustrum is a name that seems made for a teasing!

Thanks Ray. Was a bit rushed on this one... an ink drawing every day is a bit of challenge at points with everything else going on :D

I've just realised you were doing the Inktober with the Discworld characters, this is wonderful :love:
Someone is doing the whole thing based on my favorite game, now you're doing it with my favorite universe/book/author/genius mind, it's like Christmas already :D
