Well, who didn’t read Pratchett’s “Hogfather”, easy way to defeat bogeyman is to put a blanket on his head, and there was this episode in bar with drunk bogeyman and Susan, and I just…agskghnhhsusaaan

At the beginning of things: fabledquill: ““Sam Vimes once arrested me for treason,” said Vetinari…
““Sam Vimes once arrested me for treason,” said Vetinari calmly. “And Sam Vimes once arrested a dragon. Sam Vimes stopped a war between nations by arresting two high commands. He’s an arresting fellow, Sam Vimes. Sam Vimes killed a werewolf with his bare hands, and carries law…
A-HA FINALLY I GOT THIS DONE

And - hey, you’ve seen me weeping over the spirit of machismo who crept into the character on the first sketches xD Hope the final image looks okay :3
Took me two days (eh, nights, actually… and one huge, dark, R-rated Scottish audiobook as the working soundtrack)) to finish this one. Meant this both as an illustration, a portrait of my favourite Pratchett’s character, and a present for one of my friends who loves him, as well.

Corporal Angua or Sergeant Angua, depending on what point in the series you’re at. :) I’m fond of the Watch in general, but since Angua is the one whose fanart representations I usually disapprove of, I thought I’d draw just her (at least for now). Also, it does say in the books that her wolf form resembles a long-nosed hunting dog, but since I can draw neither wolves nor hunting dogs, I settled with a miscellaneous canine. :I Sorry.
Couldn’t decide which fandom to pick for this, so I ended up using several. Hopefully there’s something for everyone to enjoy, for you guys deserve it. Mwah mwahh.
The first projects on the slate are a pair of adaptations that were previously set up at Prime Focus. There’s a four-part mini-series version of Pratchett and Neil Gaiman‘s Good Omens, with Terry Jones and Gavin Scott writing the scripts; and there’s an ongoing, procedural series set in Discworld’s Ankh Morpork, starring and named for The Watch, the city’s police force. This too has Jones and Scott on the writing team. We’ve previously called it CSI: Ankh Morpork, and that seemed to get the idea across.
The first series of The Watch is planned to run to thirteen episodes of sixty minutes each
Here’s the official blurb for The Watch:
As each weekly adventure unfolds, viewers will be taken on a ride through Pratchett’s genius imagination, with the author overseeing the creation of the series, where wild and exciting encounters with werewolves, dragons, dwarfs, trolls and golems and the classic heroes and villains, are an everyday occurrence…and where many of these characters even make outstanding crime fighters!
IS THIS THE REAL LIFE
