It is said that your life flashes before your eyes before you die. It's true, it's called Life. - Terry Pratchett

As many of you will know, one of the world's best-loved authors died yesterday. There is nothing I can say about Terry that he could not have said better himself. So I wish to pay tribute with what skill I can offer, and plan on composing a rather over-the-top illustration of the children of his mind.

If anyone out there would like to take part in being part of this project (it's going to take a while, I'm sure), I will be needing reference photos. If you feel like you look like or identify with a character of Discworld (here's a list of them) and wouldn't mind sharing a face/pose reference (standing, mostly - I'll need to fit a lot of characters in; don't worry about costume, I have the books and my imagination for that), send me a note or leave a message here on my DA page. I can't afford to pay everyone for their contribution, but I will be happy to send you the original sketch of your character, if you want it. As people volunteer, I'll write a list here of characters who have been claimed, so you can move on to your second-favourite.

Characters Cast:

Magrat Garlick: :iconmirachravaia:
Adora Belle Dearheart aka Spike: :iconstelari:
Rincewind: :iconcamishcd:
Captain Carrot: :iconsakiko-seihikaru:
Lord Vetinari: :icondas-diddy:
Moist von Lipwig: :iconcapnmckay:
Nanny Ogg: :iconmoon-crafter:
Susan: :iconytril:
Lady Margolotta: :iconvitaminanime:
Nobby Nobbs: T.R.
The Bursar: P.P.
William de Worde: N.G.
Death of Rats: Himself

We love you, Sir Terry. We hope you are enjoying your purple-environed existence. With cats.

On an unrelated note, I have had the honour of being featured in two recent issues of CP Magazine, Ann Kullberg's publication for coloured pencil artists; first with a ACEO tutorial article in December, 2014, and this month with the cover and full artist's profile. Very exciting!

Many thanks to :iconbleuie: for making it possible.
