Seeker sits down to write a note to Santharian Developers:

"I hope all is well on the development front.  While I don't normally like to be away so long I have found it necessary to hide away in the swamps of Sarvonia in seclusion.  This solitary time has allowed me to produce numberless drawings and illustrations for a treasure hunt story in the works.  However I have taken a break to paint a little of my surroundings.  The Skeetoh flies have been my constant companion for the past weeks, however it is this Bogsnapper that I really wanted to share with you.  Such an interesting creature.  This one was very curious, coming within just a few peds of where I sat."

Comments Welcome

Wonderful, Seeker! A truly great depiction of the Bogsnapper! Especially if you read the description where it is mentioned: "These animals are particularly tame and not very bright." I love its expression looking around, a bit like a duck, somewhat unsure what to do. Could be distantly related to Donald. lol Must be quite a show when the mullogs ride these beasts...  grin

And once again we "kill two birds with one stone" in this one as Seth's skeetoh is also covered. Which reminds me that the German equivalent expression is "to kill two flies with one stroke". Interesting, eh? The Santharian equivalent probably would then be "to kill a fly and a bogsnapper"... ;) BTW: How does one actually kill two flies with one stone? I imagine that's quite a feat!

But rambling aside: Aura +1 of course for this wonderful illustration, Seeker!

 :D  Excellent, Seeker.  Love the bogsnapper.  I wonder, would the placing a skeetoh on the leg of  the bogsnapper, engorged with blood, be a difficult addition?  If so, nevermind.  Just thought it would look cool.  Auried. thumbup

The flies are awful, I will never go there to see a bogsnapper, thanks for the pic and enduring all these stitches!

Lovely, Seeker. The expression on the bogsnapper's face is priceless. Aura.

Thanks guys and gals for the great compliments on this picture.   thumbup

Don't know what compelled me to draw this one, I guess i just thought it would be interesting.  grin

As for killing flies and birds with stones. The key is to use gigglepebbles.  undecided
