On Friday my wife took this big batch of packages to the post office.
This was all of the Alpha tier special autographed copies of MHL. If you remember from the Kickstarter, I offered to not just personalize the copy but to draw a picture, backer’s choice. I was willing to take requests, with the caveat that I’m a writer, not an artist.
The most common request was for the happy face logo. Piece of cake. But then it started getting complicated, but I said I’d attempt to draw whatever they wanted. Here is a sampling.
There were a lot of Abominations requested.
Then I got requests for a bunch of Owens, and some for my favorite character.
Some of them I could tell you guys were just testing me, like Owen riding a War Dachshund into battle, but I’m game.
I never expected to be asked to draw a wombat chasing a tank.
The hardest ones were where the request was “just draw whatever” because that could get a little weird.
And if you ask to be surprised, nothing is more surprising than an unexpected Gnome.
Except maybe a walrus.
This one went to Switzerland and it needed to be something about Swiss Hunters. Yes. I’m enough of a dork that I made sure the Sig 510 was recognizable. 🙂
One person wanted Melvin the Internet Troll.
Eugene the archer/redneck elf was one of the characters from our GenCon game and the request was for him or a zombie moose, but why not both?
I got several requests for Management, and they got better as I went along. I think this is my best one.
Sometimes they asked for a character, but didn’t specify so I drew whoever I felt like.
And some Skippys, of course
There were some requests for monsters
And other monsters that don’t taste like tuna
Or multiple monsters, like this request for Heather to be killing a master vampire
This one was for a 9 year old girl Hunter. Which is too freaking cute.
There were several requests for Franks punching things. Like Franks punching an iconic monster from Warmachine.
Or Franks punching Cthulu
That is a small sample. I did 80 of these things. Which is a lot when you can’t draw. So back to work!
