Young Vetinari by priscellie Young Vetinari by priscellie
I did some poses for Mon over a year ago when Terry Pratchett's 'Night Watch' came out and we were both squealing over the sheer sexiness of young Vetinari. She wanted to draw the scene in which Vetinari simply sprawls into a chair in Lady Meserole's house (we had to fan ourselves), but Mon never finished the drawing, so I resurrected the pose and finished the piece myself. Ya snooze ya lose, Izcovich! XD Hope you don't mind, Moni.

The piano, Oriental rug (Auriental?), and weird chairs are straight out of my living room. In this context, I imagine they're not too far off from the kinds of furnishings Lady Meserole might have had. And yes, I know he's wearing his grey/green/brown thing instead of his Assassin uniform in this scene. I claim artistic license because the uniforms is sexier. If you don't like it, draw your own. Muaha! Illustrator 9.

someone else who finds Lord Vetinari to be one of the sexiest men on the Disc :XD: !!!

with your wonderful description here, accompanied with this... phewwwww... dazzling drawing here... I'm thinking about diving back into Night Watch so i can... imagine all the right stuff again XD
Night Watch was one of my first Sam Vimes books... I feel like I did it wrong... yet even then, I knew Vetinari was the coolest one there :XD:

I think he's a bit too pale... but it's my opinion. BTW, if I remeber correctly, his eyes were pale blue.
A good job anyway.

he should be waring dark greens and grays
CustomCookie Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2011
Masterfully done, even if he IS wearing black.

Vetinari is very smug and cute here, and it is all in the expression, you could say that the inner magnificent bastard-iness is shinning through making him handsome. And I have to congratulate him on having good taste to wear the exact boots I have ;)

I like the sofa, too. I don't think it belongs in the 'time period' this is taking place but maybe history monks patched the time a bit wonky here.

Great work!

This is really freakin' awesome. <3 I love the attention to detail and the composition~ : )

I adore Vetinari, and this is just absolutely amazing... It also makes me want to skip forward some books to actually read that one now. xD

Vetinari is my favourite magnificent bastard in literature. He was badass when he was younger, too. Thus it's no wonder this drawing is making me very, very happy. Especially that it's so well-drawn! Good job with the detail and the pose, and I simply adore this shading.

Ye gods, the smirk. <3 You've captured young Vetinari perfectly, I'd have to say.
Atra-Caelum Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2009

Yep, young Lord Vetinari wins the award for Sexiest Discrowld Character. I was squealing to a friend of mine the moment I got to the first bit with him, and she was like "AGH NO SHU' UP I'M NOT THERE YET D8!"

...come to think of it, regular Vetinari very nearly wins that award anyway....damn him.

Just clicking on this page turned me into a 16 year old groupie seeing the Rolling Stones for the first time or summat. I love the colouring, and the pose is very natural. Excellent all around.
