Entry: the henchmen contest by Honeykitten Entry: the henchmen contest by Honeykitten
Oh yes, I'm submitting something this close to the last picture. Go me! :eyes:

All righty, this is my entry for the henchmen contest :iconsolkatt: is currently holding. The task is to design a henchman for her My Little Pony comic "Falling stars" and I decided to go for the wigmaker and huntsman option. However, I couldn't prevent myself from giving him a little companion :lol:
I am not sure how much of a pony-ish feeling you get from these two but anynoodles! I had fun when I drew them at least :iconlainloveplz:

Introduction!

Rupert de Capillus

Wigmaker, huntsman and rowdy; Rupert de Capillus is your typical selfish, snobby brute and aristocrat. Even though he tends to smile a lot you can be sure it has nothing to do with friendliness. Never trust anyone who smiles all the time.

He's not very clever even though he firmly believes he is.

He has several aunts who became bald when they grew older and is therefore terrified that the same cruel fate will happen to him. Being the shallow person he is he thus started to make fashionable wigs in case the unthinkable will ever happen. He is a true professional though, and never uses any synthetic materials for his wigs. He always collects and uses hair and fur from humans and other creatures (often without asking for permission or waiting for the hair/fur to actually fall off first before he collects it).

He also has an unexpected fear of hedgehogs due to a rather nasty accident that happened to him when he was five, which involved his pet hedgehog Dinsdale, a surprised dog and a vacuum cleaner.

Typical saying: “I’m too handsome to be forced to do any hard work.”

Fifi

A know-it-all swamp dragon with a weakness for shiny objects. She tends to be a bit quarrelsome and cheeky but even so she is a loyal companion to Rupert and the two seems to get along pretty well. She is sometimes forced to wear wigs (under protest) but puts up with it since Rupert provides her with all the charcoal and lamp oil she can eat.

Typical saying: “I ain’t wearing that thing!”

very interesting character designs, I especially like his color palette. His character description is also interesting, he kinds of reminds me of Gaston from Batb and a male version of Tangled's Mother Gothel but still he's pretty much original! Well done :)

Why thank you so much for your kind words, that means a great deal to hear! :D Yes, there's definitely some Gaston and mother Gothel there, no doubt about it! Since he is a bit vain and self-conceited, and a brute :giggle:

Any time, honey :cuddle:

It´s in print. For the Magister exams, we have to provide three copies of the thesis for the examining section (one for them, one for the first examiner (my professor) and one for the second (the other professor)). They should be ready tomorrow and then I can bring them to the examining section.
And I have two more copies made, one each for me and the archeologist of the administrative district of Dingolfing-Landau. Can´t wait until tomorrow :dance:

Well, you did very well! My friend :iconheartshope: and I are attempting to come up with our antagonist as well! So far we have a group of them, lol! They're aren't really bad. It's just that they have different ideas of how things should be, lol!
We also have to come up with a title, lol! We have the basics of what's gonna happen and how though!

Ohh, sounds like you're working really hard with your story: you make me really curious :eager:
It seems like you have the main idea finished so I'm certain you'll manage to figure the rest out (like the title) soon enough too :icondragonnod1:

Well, the story's up to Bobby, and I'm just putting it into comic form when he gives me something to work with, lol! I let him take control of WindSong as well and mold her to fit his tale. The only thing I'm having trouble with on that note is that this is supposed to be about his lynx persona and the individuals he inspires, but instead it's turning into a story about WindSong, lol! She's supposed to be a side character, lol! I'll have to bring that up to him soon, lol!

Honeykitten Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, yeah it sounds like a good idea that you point this out to him. Especially since you guys have decided to let the lynx be the main character and Windsong a side character :giggle:
