Goblin Cattle Rustler by ursulav Goblin Cattle Rustler by ursulav
And then Bossy realized that something wasn't quite right.


To answer the usual questions, this is a fully digital piece done in Painter 8, with an Intuos 2 tablet...going for a sort've silly, animated feel. Took about ten hours, spread over a few evenings, most of which was spent on that blasted cow. Damn you, cow!

Judging by the bovoid features on this particular goblin, I'm guessing this is one of those viking-type marriages where the invader kidnaps a buxom lass and forces her to be his wife?

I adore that poor cow's expression. She obviously knows something bad will happen to her if the goblin manages to drag her away. She's even digging her hooves into the ground. Between her screaming and the cowbell, hopefully the farmer will hear the commotion and come rescue her!

This strikes me as having a potential for sexual misconduct on the goblins part.

Bossy is not having a good afternoon!

Mind you, if that's the standard goblin rustlin' technique, cows will soon be evolving the lizard-like ability to drop their tails as needed -- or perhaps evolve a stronger figurative backbone such that they don't dissolve into mindless bleating fear every time a goblin grabs 'em by the tail, because let's face it, Bossy outweighs her rustler by quite a substantial amount...

Still, I guess we all have our irrational fears... ;-)
