Mini-Chapter: dragon-esque

Here I go once again with the email….

So Maddie’s out sick, so she like, emails me a new assignment.  I know, another one.  She says it’s time for me to “demonstrate my skills as an artist”.  

Great.  There’s more, like, what now…Oh I can pick something to draw.  A fruit bowl?!?  I don't think so...and why would trees be happy?  Or little?  They’re no good if they’re little…

...oh here we go.  A dragon!  Easy!  That guy on the interwebs has like, a lesson.  I’ll just like, copy it. HA!

Now where is that lesson…oh here it is.  Man, this guy is like a genius.  Yeah….yeah….hey, that looks like one of my beefy arms, HA….oh man, I LOVE THIS SONG.

“’Sup, Tair?”

“Hey Ally.  I’m cheating on my art homework.”

“Cool…uh…what is your horse, uh, doing there, Tair?  Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but…”

What.  “It’s not a horse, it’s a dragon, man. See?”

“Dragon, huh.”  She like, chugs some brew.  “I think it’s a horse.”

“Do horses breathe fire?”

“Oh that’s fire…cause what it looks like is a really big…”

“Hey Ally, hey Tair.  Moronic Trio starts in like, five minutes!”

“Let’s see what Jed thinks this is…show him, Tair.”

“Is that your art project?  Hey, nice dragon, man...”


“…and those Vs are very consummate…” 

Ally's like pfft. "Showoff.”

“Yo Ally.  Jed says my Vs are consummate.  Hey bro, I didn’t know you liked art?””

“I like dragons…and I like that song, man…but why is the dragon eating a jellyfish?”


“Shut UP Ally.  It’s fire, man, see…”  I turn it around.  

Oh man.  It kind of does look like that...and also like that…not that there’s anything wrong with that.  But like, the dragon is supposed to be nuking the thatched roof cottages, not like eating jellyfish.  OR WHATEVER.  I guess I’ll need to start over.  Whoa.  This art stuff is hard.


Man. I guess I said that part out loud.  Ally’s still laughing, so wrong, man.  “Come on dudes, time for Trio.”

I  wonder how hard it is to draw happy little trees?


  1. An homage to Strong Bad and the Burninator. If you have never seen the original (or even if you have!) please stop right now and go here:

  2. Happy little trees! I used to get stoned and watch that guy on PBS :D (will be back tomorrow evening to catch up proper) <3

    1. :D (maybe by tomorrow I'll have a proper chapter!)

    2. Hm. I guess that could pass for a jellyfish, or....*that* LOL. Loved that little debate.

  3. :D I agree with Ally! This made my day.

  4. Ah, I think Tarik's drawings are better than mine (Yes, I am that bad.) I can't even dream of drawing a horse eating a jellyfish ;) All I can dream of is drawing a stick person with legs that make sense, so their right knee isn't connected to their hips. I think my artist dreams are non-existent

    Its fun to have filler type chapters, isn't it?

    1. Tarik's drawings are better than mine, too. My stick people don't have knees!

      It's fun and necessary, I'm still reshooting the chapter that Mr Photobomb made me rewrite :)

  5. Haha, I love Tarik's attempt at a dragon!

  6. That's what she said! Lol! Go Ally! The Jellyfish eating horse is brilliant BTW. =D

    1. Thanks! I had a lot of fun with it. I really do wonder what the EA team were using as inspiration when they came up with these "sketches". I've seen another one of Tarik's and it's a doozy.

  7. Lol, he definitely shouldn't have chosen a dragon, that's just really hard.

    ...that's what she said.

    This mini chapter was hilarious. :)

    1. BA DUM BUM! :D

      Thanks, I really had fun, glad you liked it!

  8. TROGDOR! (I now have the song stuck in my head).

    I also have this song stuck in my head now:

    It's a cacophony in there.

    1. Yay! Happy to have put that song in your head. And WOW on the Bob Ross one, hadn't seen that - that was fun. Thank you for sharing!
