Keith by Soulstripper Keith by Soulstripper
As I promised,here's the second and more successful attempt on Discworld Death in "Soul Music" by Terry Pratchett. OK,I know I'm not as good as Paul Kidby...but at least I tried...

The picture's name is Keith because in "Soul Music" someone supposed Death's first name might be Keith...and I took advantage of that idea. Enjoy.

"So you're a rebel,my little Death? And what are you rebelling against?"

Thank you :) I should do something better these days. I mean, it's been ages since I've last painted Death, and I hope to be able to do it better now that I am older ;)

Even if it's difficult and a long story to explain, just know that this picture made my day.

I am really glad to hear this, whatever the reason may be. It means a lot to know that my art actually made someone feel better. It must be the feeling I put in the picture. Thank you so much, I wish I could still draw such things...

Keith as in Keith Richards, Rolling Stone guitarist? Come to think of it, he kindof looks like death :o :p

Fantastic pic! :D

Heh,at first I didn't know that joke of Pratchett's was about Keith Richards,but it was a good joke indeed. I just thought the name fitted the image...and the guitar.;)

I suppose the whole "live fast, die young" thing doesn't worry Death, eh?

Yeah. "Live fast,die young and be a pretty corpse." Heh. He is a pretty corpse.

Death plus leather equals hot. Don't even argue.

You've really captured him very well. I've personally always found it difficult to impart a personality on to a skull, but this is just kickass on multiple levels.

doesn't Death get drunk in Mort, too? And Reaper man, sort of? Love me some inebriated anthropomorphic personification.

:iconsoulstripper:
Soulstripper Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2007
I won't. I agree. Dead sexy,hahah. To be honest,I kind of like the picture too. I've always related to the melancholy Death feels sometimes,and Pratchet's description of the power of rock music was just so exact. So I put a lot of heart in this picture. I'm glad you think it's "kickass". Thank you :hug:

Yes,I think he does. I just LOVE him when he's drunk. So unbelievably adorable,with a mind too mild to be Death and too pure and naive to be human. :aww:

is there a Death fanclub? There really should be. I have a friend who's nuts over Death has well.

Well,I don't know. But there should be. I'm in it for creating a Samuel Vimes fanclub,too. The more books I read about him,the more I love him...sometimes even more than Death.

I'm honestly suprised there isn't one already for Vimsey. I confess, I am a Vimes fangirl. It's a shameful, shameful thing to admit. *hangs head* Why must he be so loveable?
Reply
:iconsoulstripper:
Soulstripper Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2007
Well,there might be,and still,if there really isn't,that IS a shame. I'm not sure if I'm a Vimes fangirl. Maybe I'm on my way to becoming one.;P

Vimes is cool. In just about everything. Cool in a very untraditional way,but still cool. Like the anti-heroic hero,you know. It seems like he was designed for being that.
