The Drow from Del Monte... by Mistresselysia The Drow from Del Monte... by Mistresselysia
He say YES!!!

(...Repeatedly, I expect...)

I am in a silly mood! :boogie: Very, very cartoonish, almost chibi (for me, anyway!) - my entry for the contest - 'Modern Drow'. We have to draw a drow in a modern setting, so I decided to draw my drow male Alak (much better known as Obsidian) running a fruit stall with his ever present 'fruit-man', Graham. Because we all know how much he loves fruit... ;p ( :puke: ) Would *you* buy fruit from this drow?!?

I had an obscene amount of fun drawing, inking and colouring this. :aww:

:giggle: Ahhh, bless ye! Obsie is a bit... odd when it comes to this kind of thing. In reality, I don't think he could be trusted to run a fruit stall at all... :O_o:

Nooo, why do you think so? [goes out and comes back with a big watermellon] Look, it seems all right... [collapses and dies poisoned]
At least I could praise the mighty fruit-man...

Somehow, this manages to be *more* sinister than if he were clad in black leather and chain mail, wielding whips and poisoned daggers.

Good times!

YAY! Watermelons! For some reason, drow had always struck me as the sort of people who eat watermelons.

Heehee...and I like Graham too, he looks funny.
Good luck in the contest! :D

Yay you did it! I was beginning to wonder if you were going to enter your idea or not. It was just too good not to go for it though, so I'm glad you managed to get it done! :dance: boogie: :dance:

And would I buy fruit from him? HELL NO! Either the people who have said they would buy fruit from him don't know Obsie very well...or they are just really SICK people, hehe.

As for the picture, I love how you've "framed" the picture with the stand itself. Very clever. And Graham is looking good, very well drawn and colored. I like the little spider up there too, it's a nice little addition and a little nod to Lolth as well, hehe... The sign though..."Apples: Juicy and Succulent.” *shudders* I don’t even want to think just how many different juices are adding to that juiciness… :puke: :laughing:

Good luck in the contest!

Just remember to wash them thoroughly... very thoroughly! It's been a while since Obsie was trotted out, so not everyone is familiar with his, err, 'habits'! He is a cutie... and odd, demented little weirdo too, but a cutie nonetheless... now if we could just convince him to *eat* the apple... :O_o:

:hug: Thanks!

:lol: Thank you! I always remembered those 'The man form Del Monte' adverts, and as soon as I started rawing this, I *knew* that's what it had to be called! Although I think Obsie would have a fit if he really was the Drow from Del Monte... so much fruit, so little time... :-O

:highfive: Thank you! It's about time Obsie got trotted out again. He's been restrained too long... (and if you knew what he did to fruit, you wouldn't want it... eeeeeeewwwwwwwwww!!!)
