Thorg plodded his way down the dirt highway. Holding aloft his prize. He grinned stupidly to himself, he had done it! Hearing a story about ogres of late he had realized that living contentedly in his dark cave was not fufilling the true role of an ogre. He had never carried off a fair maiden. So he had straightway come to the nearest town that was having one of their fairs and snatched up the first girl he saw. Wait till all of the others he knew heard! After smashing a few stands, he had started back to his cave. Now all he had to do was figure out what to do with his fair maiden. The story hadn't said, and he wondered if she was any good at playing hide n' go seek when he felt a small prod at his stomach, and a shout of challenge that he either release the maid or be skewered on the spot. Looking around he saw no one, the challenge was shouted again, and something poked at his stomach again irritably. He looked down and what the...?
Ah, two cute blondes to the rescue! Well the kid has some guts doesn't he. Let's just hope that the maiden has spotted a knight coming to their rescue off in the distance. (A note about the ogre, I didn't realize until after I colored him that he remotely resembles Shrek, I wasn't using any refrences, and it isn't supposed to be Shrek, I swear.) Also just to clarify a bit, the boy is holding a toy wooden sword, not a 2x4. This picture didn't come out the way I quite wanted it to, and I didn't feel like doing a background on it.
