Pretty much as the title says, just some random Discworld characters that I haven't drawn much of yet and thought I'd have a go at. From left to right (hoping it's obvious, though!) there's Dibbler, Nobby, Angua and Teatime. Certainly not the most dynamic looking picture, but I did this mainly for some people-drawing and colouring practice, so please forgive the lack of an interesting background :B

EDIT: I remember that I was going to point out, any resemblance in Dibbler to Tony Robinson's 'Baldrick' from the Blackadder series is subconsciously intentional on my part; I can't seem to picture him as anyone else.

I absolutely love all the different kinds of lighting here. I can tell where they might be standing at different times of the day :D

Recognized them all without peeking! YEEE:D
Seriously now, great picture, though, if I my say so, I would do some things diferentely... for example, I don't think Teatime is meant to look so sweet and cheerfull and, well... nice. Though that is just my view, which might be the result of watching the Hogfather one too many time. And I never imagined Dibbler looking a little crazy. But, again, that's just my view.

First two were obvious, Angua and Teatime less so, at first glance. But this is fantastic work!

You know, Nobby actually looks quite handsome in this. (in a Nobbs-ish way, of course)

Nobby and Teatime are possibly the best looking I've ever seen them in a fanart. Good Job!

Just wanna pick up and cuddle Nobby. :D Not sure it's worth whatever deadly disease I'll contract, though.

I love Nobby here; you got him looking aptly grotesque and shabby, and yet he's still totally adorable somehow.

Your interpretations of the characters are better than anything my imagination could have conjured up. I less than three them so

Oh gosh, thanks to that comment about Dibbler, I won't be able to picture him anymore without hearing that he 'has a cunning plan....'! XD

Never really could imagine how he should looks to need to get paper that he's a human XD

I love your art style, that is certainly the best portrayal of Angua I have ever seen. Not how I had pictured her, but I might consider changing my mental picture!

I would love to see more of her and the other guards, they are my favourite characters.

Great work!

Thankyou so much for the lovely comments! I might just have to do more of the guards you know, there are so many great characters and want to draw them every time I come across a new one, but the guards in particular (as well as the wizards) are some of my favourites :D

I LOVE how you did Nobby :D Seriously, he looks great! Teatime looks mad x3 But I'm still in love with your Nobby-skills. You have such a wonderful style!

Thanks so much! I still didn't get Nobby quite right to how I picture him, but I'll keep trying. I want to animate a scene from Thud! with the Colon/Nobbs brains trust, so hopefully there'll be a bunch more Nobby to come :B
