Years ago there I almost bought or was thinking of buying a pair of blue snakeskin boots but they would not have lasted long and the price was enough to make me weep about £300. :shock:

That's why your artwork's so great Kemar ((hugs)) - it's pure Discworld! :lol:

Now I can't stop laughing at all - just seen where Angua's right hand's placed - perfectly innocent naturally because we all know that Golems don't have any... :twisted: PMSL

I'll get me coat :oops:

that was taken a little out of context kemar, it was in ref.to Jan statement about the said boots in your artwork, and to show I did not make up the name of the aforementioned shop. :wink: :lol:

Jan: Indeed, I'm not innocent at all, especially when Angua is involved.
But how what I supposed to represent that part in a not correctly baked clay?
It would have been too much weird. I'm glad you like them, anyway :]

pip: Thanks, that's a good infection :]

Who'swee: Well, I do love the results of out of context quotes. :)

Thanks a lot: It's truly a big deal to me to have the covers sort of approved by the discworld lovers.

The next one: "The colour of magic"is officially released:

With another rejected rough (don't say the number between 7 and 9):

Well even the best bakers sometimes can't get their dough to rise (still PMSL from the last time :shock: :twisted: )

I've heard of biceps on biceps but not actually seen them before :lol: Nor did I ever expect to be saying that a hunky hero was really 'stacked' !!!!! *stopped breathing now due to PMSL too much* :wink: Love love love the Luggage clinging to the tail and Rincewind and Twoflower are wonderful! :D

I have to say that this cover works better than the rejected one. It's kind of difficult to make out what's happening on the rejected one. :)

Thanks!

Tony, The rejected is just the scribble, the rough not a finished one :) ( but I agree, a lot of movements means a lot of confusion too)
