Thinking outside the box, coloring inside the lines


So, now that I’m no longer (mostly) dealing with the damn boss-level Pandaren flu, I can get back to a few things I’d been wanting to update you all on. A few days ago, just before the last wave of ships arrived from Kalimdor (along with the always-delightful former chieftain of the Darkspear trolls), I noticed Gurtash on some down time doodling pictures of the base and some of the officers. It got me thinking that maybe the kid could provide me with an outside-the-box way around my whole lack-of-a-scribe situation.

What’s that? You don’t follow how Gurtash drawing could help me keep my transcription needs covered until Mokvar’s back on board? Well here, have a look for yourself at the kid’s first practice project from the other day:



* Sylvanas baited D&U into asking Overlord Cliffwalker about this here.


Not bad. I mean, it’s pretty doodly, and his proportions need work, and let’s face it, it doesn’t come anywhere near capturing my level of awesome, but to be fair, that would be too much to expect him to get on paper in one pass anyway. Kid’s only fourteen, after all. Overall, though…yeah, I’m thinking Gurtash may have found himself a new part-time job.

He would kind of have to be, right?

I always knew that kid had talent!

Also, the facepalm should be your new avatar.

I’m telling you, if it weren’t for the turnaround time on these comics, Mokvar might have to start looking over his shoulder.

That is all kinds of awesome!

Personally I prefer the word “EPIC” myself, but what the hey.

Glad you found your way here, Arli. Enjoy. Unless you’re Alliance. Then…well, still enjoy, but do so with the knowledge you’re living on borrowed time, is all.
