Sylvia learns new tricks by DCLeadboot Sylvia learns new tricks by DCLeadboot
Giftart for :icondouble-s-nl:

The original idea was that Sylvia was trying to master the Flame Spear attack, alongside Wally Babbleton.
Of course, they are under the supervision of the true master, Retsubnad Leadboot, who is teaching them the spell and making sure they're careful how they use the ability.

This turned into a little competition to see who could make their Flame Spear reach the furthest, while Thoronraw acts as impromptu judge to determine who wins...

Retsy, Wally and Thor'n are my own characters.
Sylvia belongs to *Double-S-NL

I'm just waiting for Sylvia to say "My Flame Spear's bigger than yours." :XD:
Very nicely done with the action here, I dig Wally's strained body language in particular! :thumbsup:

Wally: Everybody has a spear bigger than mine... :roll:
Thoronraw: Kindly rephrase that, Wally! ^^; . . . even if it IS true... :giggle:
Retsubnad: Now, Thor'n. You shouldn't make fun of Wally's shortcomings. :XD:

Love the fact Wally seems to be trying his hardest, while Syl looks like she isnt even trying....makes me wonder how far she would reach if she was serious :fear:

Nice giftart :aww: sweet of you to do this for her

Heh, heh... Sylvia's a quick learner, it seems! :giggle:
Also, much of the comedy was coming from the fact that Wally is such a loser... ;)
And I think it could be a funny side to Thoronraw that, even with those big talons, he has a knack for being very delicate - see how he carefully handles that tape-measure! :XD:

Aw come on, can't you teach her to be nice and not mean to people (me specifically) untill you give her super powers :(

Ah well, at least the beam is not too strong if the ruler Thoronraw uses doesn't melt.
Also not sure if Retsy's smart teahching people new fire powers in a room filled with flamable carpets and wall decorations. Not to mention flamable Thoronraw's.

Okay I'm being a jerk.
Nice drawing tough.

Retsubnad: I haven't had a lot of experience at being nice myself, although she's been hanging out with Danbuster a lot in our MSN roleplays... she's good friends with our Artist's characters! ;)

Thoronraw: Not to worry, good sir. I'm standing well back, so I don't get my feathers burned. Not a nice smell, singed gryphon... ^^;

Heh, heh... that's OK - Retsy would only teach this kind of stuff to good friends that he's known long enough to trust... and even then, under supervision to make sure accidents don't happen. :giggle:
Thanks for the comment! :)

I think it's a developing hilarious feature of Thoronraw lately... that he's got these great big taloned "hands" (I don't know how else to call them)
He should really be clumsy, and yet he might well be seen very delicately balancing a teacup between two talons, daintily sipping his tea and managing admirably...

I hope Retsy has likeable aspects to him too... ;)
Sometimes he (and I) make some foolhardy decisions - and the hear the offended parties speak, you'd think he'd committed a capital offence... even when I rewrite the story for an inoffensive alternative, he has difficulties in gaining forgiveness... ^^;

DCLeadboot Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh, that's true... :XD:
Retsy had more luck in saying the words out loud - he just had a harder time of it getting the forgiveness in return. Even then, it only came in varying doses... :giggle:
From his Danbuster, it was fully and freely given, since the hare is very forgiving anyway and loves his brother too dearly to let him fall down. Of course, he still spoke very severely to him first.
From the actual offended parties, though, they were able to accept his apology... but only after taking a few days to cool down, and even then with reservations... though the healing process is begun.
