Still working on a post for Monster Monday, but for the time being here’s another old Snud and Snarky design pic.

UPDATE: Actually we’ve had tornado warnings here all day and that has really put a crimp in the productivity.

Monster Monday: Snud and Snarky!

I had to do a very quick Monster Monday entry as I have still been extremely busy.But here goes!
These two characters, Snud and Snarky, are the guards at the front gate of a place I call Odd Manor. Odd Manor was my big creative project in the 90’s and I spent a lot of time sketching and creating its world. I put it away for the 2000’s, and I think maybe it’s time to get it out again. I’ll explain about it in another post.

Snud and Snarky aren’t gonna make it easy for you to get past them. They are big, nasty and incredibly strong. Although their claws may look threatening, those are mostly for digging; the real trouble is their trunks; they have no problem wrapping them around you and flinging you back over the estate wall.
They do have primitive wings and they may fly after  you, then step on you.

They are easy to sneak up on from behind, however. They don’t hear very well, so they have spurs on one leg to stick you with if you try anything there. Snud’s is on his right leg, while Snarky’s is on the left.

Actually Snud will more than likely just confront you directly,ask what the heck you’re doing here, make you state your business and all that… Snarky will then laugh at your shoes or your hair, and if you’re still there within thirty seconds, then you’ll probably get flung. Just a warning. And of course, this is all only if you don’t ring the bell before entering.
