I just found this picture and thought I'd share it with you.

Have you seen any other DW fan art on the Net? :D

There's an ANGUA piccy by this guy on his deviantART album - obviously a Pratchett fan!

I've never done artwork for Discworld but perhaps its about time I started - except people like this bloke and Paul and Josh do it so much better than I could... :roll:

That's the same guy who did the Hat Full of Sky piccie. Wish I could draw that well. :(

oooo! I have this guy's sketch of Agnes Nitt on one of my 'House' threads elsewhere *puts him on favourites quick before she loses him again!*

Not sure I like the painting of Tiffany, but I was very young then :D
I do like the one of Angua though. :)
The Drawings are excellent by Tealin though, but she/he hasn't done a drawing of Tiffany. :(
Best wishes,
Tiff

I don't recall seeing a Tiffany picture by Tealin, but check out her Harry Potter artwork on that site. :D

Tealin says she hugely admires Paul Kidby's work and so she concentrates on the 'gaps' in his work where he's either not illustrated a character or it varies from Tealin's own visions - notably here it's the Watch I think where she seems to interpret it differently (Carrot, Vimes and Nobby seem to be the main ones). With the Witches too it's Agnes who's concentrated on.

Tealin really is a talented artist but there are so many out there of course - I'd 'found' her about 3 years ago when I wanted an image of Agnes and couldn't find her on the Kidby site - I simply googled Agnes Nitt on the image tab and there wasn't a lot that came up but Nocturnal Soldier was one of the matches - I also found some Great A'tuin art I'd not seen before HERE. So get googling -there must quite a few people out there scribbling away :D

Maybe we should have a fanart thread on here :?: That might even make me pull my crayons out once I have certain things out of my system :oops:

I love that picture of Tiffany. I immidiately thought "Studio Ghibli" even before reading the text. Very much the same style.

A couple of the 'ladies' on the stamp forum dressed as the Aunts for an event and really looked the part - scared the bejesus out of me! :lol:

"Ladies" eh? Hmmm. I can imagine it must have looked pretty scary! :lol:
