The New Russet by Kelaiah The New Russet by Kelaiah
This may not make a lot of sense to some of you, so I will do my best to explain it:

Damon Thorn (the ferret) is a character based off of Sherlock Holmes, and his sidekick (the squirrel), Quindon Russet, is based off Dr. Watson.

In the original Sherlock Holmes stories, Watson was a tall, slim, "ladies man", who was also a war doctor. In later stories, however, Watson somehow became depicted as a short, dumpy, doof of a man who was an essentially useless character only good for comic relief.

Av-marten, the creator of Damon and Quindon, dislikes the second version of Watson, and made Quindon like the original Watson.

Now, at one point in time, Av-marten showed me a comic of the original Watson meeting the new Watson, and expressing his distaste and disbelief that he could have been traded in for a fat comic relief who mostly talked about how he liked jam. :XD:

This comic of mine is based on that comic. Damon Thorn is explaining his reasonings for the conclusion of their current mystery, only to find that his friend and sidekick has been replaced by a fat, sloppy squirrel who liked jam (a little too much).

The real Quindon, however, is not about to be replaced, and comes running in to... express his dislike for his new self (ahem), and so, told the new Quindon that his services would not be required after all. :giggle:

So that's it, pretty much. I hope you all enjoy this, silly though it is. :XD:

But...I seem to recall one of the original Sherlock Holmes stories saying that Watson was, at the very least, less trim than Holmes was.

But then again, it's been a long time since I'd read all of those original stories...maybe my memory's faulty...

"Less trim" doesn't necessarily mean fat or dumpy. ;):giggle: Heh heh, but anyway... thanks for commenting. :)

Lol :XD:, did a good job on the false Russet :giggle:. I like both Watsons, preferably the skinny intellectual though :). He was pretty boss.

Holmes: come, Watson, to the pizzaria!

Watson: *sarcastically* are we going to eat, Holmes, or investigate poisoned pizza sauce?

(It's elementary.)

But other than that, holy mother of jam I love you.

New Russet looks awesome (relatively, anyway). The jam stain on his vest, the sloppy eating, the... by is there a flower on him in the second panel? You know what, I don't even want to know. Thorn's "Who the blueberry hell are you?" look in the second panel is perfect, along with his complete lack of a reaction to Quin beating up his doppelganger. I especially like the "back to normal" feel of that last part. Hee! For some reason Russets face looks really cool in that last panel.

(Yeah, I've heard him say elementary, but for some reason, as I drew this, I kept on hearing Damon say "elemental", and so decided to just go with that and risk coming off as a moron. ;):giggle:)

Heeheeheehee, 'holy mother of jam'. *sneeeeerk* :icondragonkekeplz: Well I'm so glad you like it! :D:D:D (And relieved, because I was afraid you weren't going to be very impressed by it.)

Heh heh heh, but yeah, I like how New Russet came out; I wanted to go all out in making him the exact opposite of Old Russet (even going as far as riding him of a weapon and replacing it with a corsage, :rofl:).

But I'm glad you like Thorn's face in the second panel, because that one I had some trouble with and kept on doing over. I guess I'm just used to him always looking calm and in control. :giggle: But yes, my favorite is the second last panel where he's just staring at Russet, I like how that came out. :D:D:D

And I'm also glad that you also like Russet's face in the last panel, because I was worried it came out weird, but really, its your opinion that matters most in the end. :D:D:D

Gift art feeds my ego, dude. I will love everything you could possibly turn out if it has my characters in it. Sad but true.

New Russet looks like the "before" photo in a Weight Watchers infomercial.

I am very glad that Thorn's reaction to New Russet was different from Holmes' reaction to New Watson.

It feeds my ego too. :giggle: I still look forward to any fanart of my fanfic you ever do as well. :D:D:D I even have a few ideas I'd like to say, but I'll put them in a note. :)

*snerk* He does, doesn't he? :XD:

Heh heh, and yeah, there was no way I was going to let Thorn choose New Russet over the old one. No no no. :rofl:

I still want to draw something where Thorn and Russet interact with Primrose and Pansy.
