Masters of Their Worlds by Vanilleon Masters of Their Worlds by Vanilleon
Can you recognize these fine folks? I'll give you three guesses...

...

...Got it?

If you guessed "Lord Vetinari, Granny Weatherwax, and Terry Pratchett himself," award yourself a giant cookie for being awesome!

This is fan art that I made for the North American Discworld Convention last year, finished on the last day of the con. I barely caught up to Sir Terry and handed it to him as he made his escape after the closing ceremony. He thanked me kindly, even though he was in a hurry. :la: I feel so lucky for being able to attend, and Iím so glad I was able to finish this in time.

As you can probably tell, the drawing was incredibly rushed -- but I would far rather have something nice to give to my favorite author, than something perfect that I canít. :heart:

That's fantastic! Especially Granny Weatherwax, she's one of my favorite characters in the series.<br / />

Wow! Very very nice. :) I went to the con this year but alas Sir Terry could not make it . He had to meet a publishing deadline for his book "Raising Steam".

Glad you like it! Darn, it's too bad Sir Terry couldn't attend -- but it's always good news to hear that he's working on a new book. :)

Thanks for the nice comment and watch!

I AM SOOOO AWESOME!! <3
this looks fantastic!! <3 You know, I noticed as I read the bazillionth Granny Weatherwax book that I don't have a personal picture for her in my head... But I like yours a lot :XD:
I do have a picture for Vetinari, and it is nothing like any of the movies... *sigh* I'm kinda terrible at making middle aged people, but my version of Vetinari has messier black hair and no beard. DAMMIT. I FAIL. :XD:
I really really like this picture though. Vetinari and Granny are two of my favorite characters (the third one being Death :D :D )

Very nice, all told. I've always felt there was a thematic connection between Vetinari and Weatherwax. Mind you, said connection was, essentially, "If they're both in the room, run. Don't turn around. Don't stop. Just. Run." :p

Awww that's too bad. :( Yep I'm going! It's going to be my first Discworld convention so I'm super excited! :D I live near Chicago so it's not too bad of a drive up (3 hours). I can't wait! It sounds like these conventions are really fun. :wizardhat:

Nice :D I'm thinking of going as Drumknott (gee, what reason could I, the biggest Vetinari/Drumknott shipper around, possibly have for doing that?), unless I decide I don't want to cosplay a guy. In that case, I'll probably end up going as Susan too. (I'm not copying off of you; that was always my backup plan.)

My badge should have both my real name and my username on it (I've emailed to ask if my username can be amended to the badge name, and they said it wouldn't be a problem), so we might see each other there!

Awesome! Yeah my badge name is just going to read "Sara" and so far it looks like I'm the only Sara without an H so I'll be stalking around dressed as governess Susan holding some sort of fake poker (I can't bring a real one into the con :c ).

Yes, I feel very lucky. I only got to say a couple words to him, but mostly it was awesome to see him on stage and hear him talk about his work. :heart:

P.S. That's a mighty fine avatar you have there. :D

That's so fantastic, lucky, lucky you!!

A couple of years ago, Sir Terry was signing books here in Vienna, but at that time I had just started work at a new place and my boss made me stay and do over-hours on exactly the evening of the signing! T___T

A friend of mine got my copy of "Thud!" signed and took photos, but I'm still quite heartbroken over it, because now Pratchett has Alzheimer's it's very unlikely he'll have many more public appearances, so I most probably missed the only chance I'd ever get to see him in person that day...


Anyways, thanks for liking my avatar :D The Grim Squeaker is among my favourite DW characters <3

Augh, that sounds so frustrating. :shakefist: I'm glad you at least got a book signed, but dang.

Don't give up, though! It might just be one of those million-to-one chances. :)
