A couple of the con floor photos of our Discworld group! 

Moist Von Lipwig is @khaoskomix

Sam Vimes is David

Fred Colon is Mollins (tumbr?)

Angua Von Überwald is Steph (tumblr?)

And Mort is me!

No idea who took the photos, if anyone can tell me that would be amazing!

and with Sam vimes and detritus i’m done with the main members of the ankh-morpork city watch. I could’ve gone for the classic clint eastwood inspired vimes, but i thought i would give a try making him look like a “slightly bulkier version of Pete Postlethwaite” ,to quote Pterry. I don’t remember if detritus was completely smooth or had some moss on him, but i always liked the idea of trolls having moss like facial hair, so i gave him a couple of mutton chops and a moss stubble X3. Anyways, i’m done with this piece i think. Thanks pterry for all the hours of fun and inspiration you gave us , you were really the best… T_T 

I can’t wait until we replace all the founding fathers on our currency with activists and all the conservatives leave america, attempting to colonize the lost city of atlantis cos they know their time is up
