inktober day04: Weatherwax and Ogg by Loopydave inktober day04: Weatherwax and Ogg by Loopydave
“Granny’s implicit belief that everything should get out of her way extended to other witches, very tall trees and, on occasion, mountains.”
― Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters

Discworlds dynamic witching duo. Strong, complex and fascinating characters... just don't get on Granny's bad side!

Probably needs a mature label, coz once Nanny Ogg starts up on the Hedgehog song you'll want the kids out of the room!

In the Ramtops witches were accorded a status similar to that which other cultures gave to nuns, or tax collectors, or cesspit cleaners. That is to say, they were respected, sometimes admired, generally applauded for doing a job which logically had to be done, but people never felt quite comfortable in the same room with them.

You've done a better job than I did in finding the perfect quotes for each illustration!

I'm often disappointed in how these two are depicted in illustrations, but here this is not the case: they're almost exactly as I pictured them in my head from the books. Congrats!

Nanny Ogg too evil, Granny is basically your Vetinari, shaved with a hat.

Thanks Dave. Having seen your inkings I now feel compelled to read the entire Discworld series in chronological order for a third time...or is it fourth? Anyway, when my missus asks why I haven't done anything around the house I shall blame you entirely. :D

Few books and series are as re-readable as the Discwold novels.
Sure, blame me to your wife but just make sure I never meet her in person ;)

Agreed. TP was an absolute legend, never to be emulated I fear. I shall think of you as I'm being nagged for not helping with the mince pies on xmas eve because I'm just finishing Hogfather. :)

Terrific job! You've chosen the perfect person to portray the personalities of Discworld. More power to you!

I'd like to see your take on Vetinari, Leonard of Quirm, and Vimes, just in case you're taking votes.

Loopydave Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2018  Professional
I am taking votes, but in the same manner as Vetinari ...“Ankh-Morpork had dallied with many forms of government and had ended up with that form of democracy known as One Man, One Vote. The Patrician was the Man; he had the Vote.” ;)
In saying that, those names are definitely on my list :highfive:

Haven't actually read Wyrd Suster's but those two are familiar. I'm sure I've encountered them elsewhere. Never mind. Still looking great anyway.

They do appear in a bunch of other Terry Pratchett books, an animation or two as well, but wherever you've encountered them, glad you like! :D
