Oh yes, I'm submitting something this close to the last picture. Go me!
All righty, this is my entry for the henchmen contest
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
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
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!”
