After a hard day of adventuring what could be better than a pint of mead, a bottle of Gut-rot, a bit of a read and bashing out 'Greensleaves' on your trusty lute? ...I think it needs tuning. Done on A3 using an F pencil and HB mechanical pencil.

*first comment wiggle* Hmmm...where to start? Amazing tone , shading and detail as usual, particularly with the map. Fantastic job there. ^.^ I love the overall feel of the character, although the temptation to kick him where it hurts is overwhelming...

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Masochist: Kick away, he loves it... Put your stilettos on first. Dirty old man."

he better be smoking the hot new Dunkleusteos biscuits powder, or else he ain't gonna get high enough to slam some real jamís on that instrument

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Stoat: He can't even play, he just thinks it'll impress the ladies if he pretends he can... you never know!"

Damnit the textures are amazing. Perticularily the book-grass-dirt bit in the bottom right corner. Great stuff!

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Donkey Derby: Cheers Alia, that's an odd place to have noticed... Suppose it must be quite hard to see though with all that rhubard in your eyes, not to mention the fork!"

Reminds me of Bill Bailey hahaha never mind

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Razor: Doesn't he have a beard? I suppose he could have shaved... Gillette Mach-3 obviously."

Andy, your art is absolutely stunning. Have you been doing any commision work lately? Or better yet are you drawing professionaly already?

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from Rumplestiltskin: Cheers mate, Nah, never done a commission and certainly not a professional. Currently working for Leeds City Council! Ooooh, very exciting. I'd love to get commissions and stuff but have no idea how to go about it. Cheers again bud!"

Like an aged Kenny G. Only with a guitar.

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Doctor of Doom: That'll be it!"

o.O I have rhubarb in my eyes?
*rushes to the mirror* Where?!?

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Fridge Magnet: *Removes mirror and replaces it with a picture of Elma Fudd* You look fine to me Alia..."

A pair of steel-toed boots is always a necessity when playing the lute. And a flame retardant helmet is good when playing the sitar.

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Blobby Mess: But what to wear when playing the spoons? A leather thong is surely the only option.."

Another fantastic picture but that pose is a disturbing one for a dwarf!!!

:-) Andy Guest replies: "Comment from the Cheese Sandwich: Many a distressed dwarf is now in therapy due to this chap..."

If he leans back any farther those seams in his crotch are gonna rip.

*rubs hands in anticipation*
