Morituri Nolumus Mori by JessKat-art Morituri Nolumus Mori by JessKat-art
A scene from Terry Pratchett's "The Last Hero":

" 'Ah, there is the voice of our mission specialist,' said the Patrician. 'I just hope-- What is that on your badge, Captain Carrot?'
'Mission motto, sir,' said Carrot cheerfully.
'Morituri Nolumus Mori. Rincewind suggested it.'
'I imagine he did,' said Lord Vetinari, observing the wizard coldly. 'And would you care to give us a colloquial translation, Mr Rincewind?'
'Er...' Rincewind hesitated, but there really was no escape. 'Er...roughly speaking, it means, "We who are about to die, don't want to", sir.' "

Read The Last Hero, an' was impressed with Kidby's visual depiction of Rincewind.

Ah, yes, this moment. He couldn't bring himself to say a wiseass comment to Vetinari's face, so he went the round-about way with the badges instead.
Probably not a suitable cry ro Caesar in a gladiator arena...

Yes, he's so proud to have a proper motto, while Rincewind is both terrified that the Patrician will be... annoyed with it and of the who endeavor in general.

YOU DREW CARROT! YAY! SQUEE! *Dies, is resurrected and dies again*

I don't care what you say, you get every character of Discworld so well, it's just not fair.

I doubt it, it was just a quick sketch and the characters don't look their best. Maybe someday I'll make a better version and color that one. :)

*sigh* All right, if you must. I shall wait in earnest. Btw, did you creat your avatar especially for this site, or is it from an earlier piece?

It's from the design I used for my website, back when it was up. The server that hosted it went down about a year (or maybe even two) ago and I've been too lazy thus far to find a new host. :P But hopefully that'll be remedied soon enough.

Cool. I love the effects you used for the magic, and the shadows on the meerkat's face.
