Don't mess with Susan. She will beat the shit out of you. With a poker.

I LOVED the scene were the little boy looks at Death and says "Susan's got a fire poker. I thought all you bogies knew that."

Methinks a certain bogeyman won't be making the same mistake twice...

=D Love it. The little details are great, and that plus the shading and the actual illustration make me so happy. It's nice to see a Susan portrait like this, 'cos it's the way I pictured her in the books. Really well done! :+fav:

Nice portrayl of Susan there! And I like the way you did the shadows. I always pictured her face as more angular, though you've got the perfect facial expression there.

Hehe, that is Susan. You've perfectly captured the 'Do not, under any circumstances screw with this girl...especially when she's got a large and heavy metal stick'
Congrats!

Oh, there are some good ones in the DW guild. But the fandom artists are too few as-is; more would be needed.

No kidding. Come to think of it, yours was only the third or fourth gallery I'd ever seen with Pratchett fanart even in it. I shall have to go search some of these people out...

Monsters are kinda fun to draw, because you can make them look as absurd as you want. There's some Paul Kidby -influence in this one, though.

Well, she did dislocate the shoulder of one them about at the beginning of the book. XD Drew this from memory, but now that I'm re-reading the book again, came across the former.

Yup. She works as a governess in that one, and constantly has to chase bogeymen out of the house she has a job in. Susan's become rather tougher and more sarcastic as of what she was in Soul Music, for example.
Hogfather's a really enjoyable read, though, if you get it into your hands. In my opinion the humor is rather much the best in the whole series. Mort was a really good one too, but I like the Susan books even more. :)

Obi-quiet Featured By Owner May 23, 2006
Hmm, well, I'll check it out. What's her first appearance?

I loved Mort because I can't get enough of Death. He cracks me up every time.

People like Rincewind and Twoflower...just don't appeal to me.
