ETA: Not happy with Pitchy's jaw. :/ Suggestions as to how to fix? Note that his face's supposed to be ill-shapen, but even so.

Inb4 "Ohnoes not that Thomas Covenant crap AGAIN!!!11", yup, it's another First/Pitchwife sketch. Nope, I never draw stuff like this with an entirely straight face. ;) However, crack pairings are even more amusing when they're canon.

Think of Pitchwife as something akin to a 8 or 9 feet tall cross between a Jötunn and the Hunchback of Notre Dame, with a misshapen visage, fingers that can effortlessly snap thick slabs of stone in two, and incessant breathing problems due to a deformed chest. A very unlikely character to fill an important supporting role in a fantasy novel, but there you go. :shrug:

A smidgen of back story about how these two drifted together unfolds in The One Tree. Pitchwife was serving his craft (kind of an odd mix of alchemy and engineering) in a ship called Wavedancer, when a serious storm threw it upon a reef, thus tearing a hole to the hull. He accidentally, possibly his crippledness playing a part in the mishap, killed The First's father while repairing the damage, and naturally started blaming himself greatly for the loss. Later, she helped him out of his depression and seemingly they fell in love with one another. It's also hinted he's quite a bit older (maybe 500-700 years by their reckoning) than the First, but just goes to show that a fair few things function differently in their culture.

I might even color this horrible thing, hence no shading. =P

Well well! :D Maybe you should've put THIS piece of work under "mature content" instead of the gore-pic... my eyes few open when I saw this! Don't know the characters that well, except for what you've described, but you draw beautifully as always and the detail is awesome. Also you've managed to capture the intensity of the feeling in this picture, it's almost tangible. Well done!

AAAAAHHH! :+favlove:

Ikuinen Kaunotar ja Hirviö-fetisisti sisälläni kiljui onnesta ja teki pari kärrynpyörää seinille kun näin tämän. Ja olen ihan rakastunut tuohon Pitchwifeen vaikken kyseistä hahmoa sen paremmin tunne kuin mitä olen näistä töistäsi saanut selville :D
Ah mitä tässä enää voi sanoa kuin että täydellistä, ihanaa, lutuista, komiaa! Edelleenkin olen kateudesta vihreänä tolle sun muskeleiden piirtämistaidollesi :lol:

Ja mieluusti näkisin lisää näitä kahta jos vaan mitenkään jaksat tahi haluat heitä vielä piirtää.

Heh, näitä sun kommentteja on tosi hauska lukea. :lol: Kiitosta vaan! Pitchwife on mun yksi henkilökohtaisia lemppareita tuosta sarjasta, juuri tasan ihan kaikkea muuta kuin joku kultakutrinen, persikkaposkinen prinssinretale, mutta taasen sitten hyvin terävä-älyinen ja lempeäluonteinen. Yhdistä tämä sitten tuollaiseen klassiseen kaunotar+hirviö-skenaarioon, niin olin itsekin ihan myyty. XDD Siitäkin harvinainen versio, että typykkä ei komeampien lajitovereiden perään haikale, vaan nämä kaksi saavat klähmästää ihan rauhassa keskenään.

Pitänee värittää tämä hömppä, mutta en tiedä pitäiskö tuon ukkelin päätä vähän korjailla... Jotenkin tuntuu, että sen leuassa on jotain vikaa (perkeleen vaikea asento muutenkin toi). Toisaalta taas hankala sanoa, kun sen naama pitäisikin olla rujo ja epäsymmetrinen, nenä vino sun muuta kivaa. :shrug:
