Goblins Gift by Kir Talmage

Goblins Gift
by Kir Talmage

Prompt: a gift for the hostess
prompted by: mikka, during Sketch Fest #25 (June, 2012)

This is sort of odd. I thought I saw (and claimed) a different prompt. Only it was this one (and indeed I can't find the other). Which as it happens, worked. I am a wee tad bit muddled though. Probably, so are the two I drew! Nevertheless, I'm pleased with how this turned out. 4B and 7B pencils on 65 lb Canson sketch paper. Paper is about 5.5" x 8.5 but the drawing doesn't fill it, more 5.5" x 5.5" roughly. I expect I'll upload copies elsewhere and make prints of one kind or another (possibly of a digitally-cleaned-up version...). These two amuse me.


mikka says: How sweet! A mushroom seems a very appropriate goblin hostess gift. I'm terribly curious what prompt you thought you were looking for, though. ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: I thought I'd seen "Goblins In Love" when I started, but I didn't when I took a break. And I really liked the hostess gift prompt -- which was such an original one (in my mind). :) I hope you don't mind; it seems to make it much more unusual story if that makes any sense!
     mikka replied to this: It's darling, and I'm delighted. Thank you for the story, too!

Anke Wehner says: That's aweet. :) Love the expressions and body language. :) ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thanks! I kept wondering what on earth I should do with the givers right arm...!! I didn't have much room left on my paper... **grin**

Janet Chui says: They are very cute :) ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thanks, Janet!
