I play a game called Elder Scrolls Online where I occasionally have to save the world from infestations of dragons, monsters and various other unsavory creatures. One of the things I like best about the game is it allows you to construct your very own custom characters. As I illustrated this picture of a fellow I designed, I discovered there seems to be a disconnect between the character I see on my Xbox and the character I see in my head. He’s an orc named WeaselHammer, he’s a tank and that’s his ferocious war chicken Frank who stands faithfully at his side, ready for action.
He wasn’t the drummer we wanted, (he was no spring chicken) but he already had a set of drum sticks and said he would work for chicken feed, so we gave him a shot… and he was pretty good for a while (even though most of the time he was just winging it) but we finally had to let him go because he refused to work on frydays.
