Where has Nick gone? by Kid-Apocalypse Where has Nick gone? by Kid-Apocalypse
It's been a really long time since I drew anything, so I took yet another break from novelling to doodle a bit. Of course, books still popped into my head, and this came up.

Maybe I'll colour it later, but my shoulder is remembering why it's been so long since I started drawing. I don't really know anyone else who's read any of the Oz books, but suffice to say, these kids lost their AU tinman. And their AU scarecrow Bo is stricken, of course.

Luckily for me, my copy of The Two Towers started crapping out right when I finished, so I didn't get really distracted--except when Bo's and Sofia's feet refused to comply. Even so, as I type this, I'm trying to get it synced back up to the Riff Trax. :doh:

I thought about it, and technically, according to the series, Nick has kids.

Is it according to the original forty or some of the myriad apocrypha?

well, he might have kids: if Nimmie Amee and Chopfty had kids then there's a 50% chance that he's the biological father

I vaguely that Forever in Oz had something about their progeny, but that's apocrypha. As far as I know, Nick hasn't got any canonical children, even via Chopfyt.

This was supposed to be an AU group in any case, not requiring a terribly cogent link to the original. If I ever gave it another go, I think I'd choose different characters, like the Hungry Tiger, a much-changed Ozma, and maybe Prince Inga or the Shaggy Man's brother.

I guess you have a point there, I guess we'll never know.

Still, it'd be an interesting question to ask a geneticist. Or a genealogist. :lol:

Well, one night I was writing a random story without really thinking about it and in the story it turned out that Nick had a daughter and Nimmie handed her over to him to raise her. He named her Willa. Don't ask how I came up with it because I have no clue how I did.

That reminds me of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, when Arthur Dent had a daughter he didn't know about pushed on him.

Asking where Oz names come from is like asking why honey is edible. :lol:

:thanks: I was messing around and drew something like characters from the Wizard of Oz. Roughly. XD The important thing was the poses, and I think I learned a lot about feet and remembering to erase my lines. Hair too.

:nod: gotcha...

I want to get more into drawing people, myself...but there's so much that crops up that demands attention; I have a very varied Muse...or maybe it's a multiple of muses bidding for the spotlight at the same time...I dunno. :)

I'm far too big a fan of these books. ^^;

Drawing (cartoon) people is about all I can really do, maybe because people are (oddly) one of my favourite things. And I'm pretty satisfied with that, but still... My dad keeps getting on me to sketch an outline of the old smokestacks that used to be in Murray for the design of a coin. He's the kind of "I'm proud of you" dad who doesn't understand the phrase, "I can't, Apá." :paranoid:

Still, I wish I could get even a basic handle of landscapes or at least interiors...

But I think they help fuel the imagination. :)

Yeah, because your dad prolly knows better. ;)

Augh! Interiors...I fail at those because they're so constricting.
Landscapes allow so much more freedom.

They do! People don't write like that anymore... Although they do still have characters admonishing each other for making puns.

^^; He does. I used a photo to mock up a silhouette at least. My dad is a numismatist. (i think that's the word)

They have so much to offer by way of angles though. I like the constricted perspective, it's so much easier to imagine skewed...says the girl who sits upside down on the sofa...

It's a pity they're not so readily available, especially for younger children.

Wow. Does he collect monetary goodies as well? I had (some time ago, and I don't know where it went.) coins out of germany and denmark. I have the Loonies (canadian coins)...

Y'know, that's one thing, though, as opposed to attempting a whole room.

I think they just aren't terribly popular for some reason. I know you can get quite a few from B&N or the like. And they do make collections, pop-up and sticker books, etc.

He's really big on Canadian money, and coins and bills from Asian countries. It's a big hobby of his, he could tell you all about mints and years of certain coins.

True. I just like the idea of corners. And I think I'm trying to guilt myself into learning interiors at least.
