So this is a thing I did last month and posted on Tumblr. Figured I'd stick it up here just to let everyone know I'm not dead, just been working on other things besides art. Also been in a slump for 2 weeks but am finally starting to yank myself out of it, started my next project already but it's another big one that'll probably take me like a week, and that's even assuming I can do it.
At the original point of posting, this took me ~5 days of straight work.
Also I dunno how well this will go over but for anyone who actually wants it, I'll just stick this here:
Gah, why do I always get stuck going with Lao on shopping runs?
“I dunno, friend, that fish looks a little dried out. Tell ya what, I’ll give you two copper for it, but three’s a stretch.”
There he goes, pretending something’s worth less than it is. Cheapskate.
“Huh, those oysters look like they’re on their way out too. I’ll take some off your hands for you.”
Wish I coulda got the kid to come with him instead, but it’s Rhai’s day to train him. Gah, wish she could do this instead of me..
“Right, thanks, friend. Hey, Tama, carry this for me, will ya? And maybe look less grumpy while I’m trying to haggle?”
“We’d probably be done sooner if you weren’t always trying to swindle every shopkeep out of the shirt on their back.”
“And then we’d be even more broke than usual! You like saving coin?”
“What I like is staying in camp and-”
“Yeah, yeah, you like staying in camp so you and Rhai can take swings at each other all day, then you both limp into Maria’s tent and get a grand old earful about wasting her medical supplies on sparring matches.”
“Well, yeah, but-”
“And then Maria runs out of supplies faster, and sends me on a shopping run to replenish them, which means I need someone to help me carry them.”
“So get Rusty to-”
“Last time I brought the kid along, he botched my delicate negotiations.”
“You mean, he was honest with a clerk?”
“Exactly! Plus, the kid’s a toothpick.”
“Uh, have you looked in a mirror lately?”
“Oh, please. I have a runner’s physique.”
“Yeah, perfect for running away when everyone gets wise to you.”
“Lucky for me, then, that we travel so much and nobody ever gets too used to it!”
