Hello, and welcome to FAF, or perhaps I should say FAFF, as in Fan Art Friday Fortnightly. Indeed, I haven’t been posting much of anything lately, but that’s only because I’ve been working on a New S3krit Project! It’s a new novel with all new characters and stuff, and I’ve finally found my stride. IT IS GETTING WRITTEN.
“When will this novel be out?” you may ask.
Indeed, you may. But I don’t know yet. Maybe autumn of 2013, maybe a year after that. I know, that’s a long time. But novels are long things, and publishing timelines are even longer things, and I can tell you that this novel is probably going to be FAT. (Like, longer than any of my other books.)
As for all the other possible questions you might have, they must wait for another day. This particular s3krit project is still too fragile to be interrogated and explicated.
Also, it’s time for FAF! Since mentioning the unnamed-loris-with-mustache thread last time, I’ve gotten a lot of loris/Bovril/Moggle art. So really this is all about the sidekicks.
The first one is from Adam, and it’s a shot of the kraken scene in Leviathan.
It’s great to see that encounter from a distance.
I’ve also been getting some Shay’s Story fan art trickling in, which is totally cool. Keep it coming. Here’s a notebook doodle of Shay from Daliz:
I like that the Uglies character have manga versions now, whether with pigtails up or down.
The rest of today’s FAF is all lorises and Moggle in many different media! Thanks to everyone for sticking with a theme.
First, some Bovril/Moggle crossover from Phrancie:
They are clearly going to conquer the world together. Or run into a lamppost, maybe.
Next is the highly anticipated Moggle-with-a-mustache, again from Oskar and his Spore software:
Undercover Moggle is undercover. And jaunty.
And we also have photoshopped Bovril, or quasi-Bovril creature, from Rebecca:
If you’re going to wear a mustache, you should probably get a top hat. It’s funny because it’s true.
And in case you’ve forgotten what the real Bovril looks like, Alex offer this book-style rendering of the Bovril birth scene:
He totally gets Keith’s composition right. It’s cool how Bovril in that scene isn’t cute yet, more kind of new-born and weird. But then gets cuter and cuter as the series progresses.
Okay, that’s it. I’ll be back in two weeks with more FAF. And probably before then I’ll post something interesting, though I don’t know what.
Sydneysiders, don’t forget that net Saturday I’ll be at Free Comics Book Day at Kinokuniya! Here’s the FaceBook page for the event, and here are the details:
