Bit of advertising for my Insert your own grot fiction Give it yer best Grot! I reckon I still got room here for maybe three more grots if anyone's keen to get involved.

Go on, help me finish this one in glorious technicolour.

You know how when you're bored you naturally start doodling a Grot with a blunderbuss? No? Is that just me then?


Not my best work by any stretch, just a little scrap sketch I found that needed colouring and so I hit it with some watercolours. Still a long way from Quentin Blake but I'm learning. What I need is a fountain pen. The lines are all too hard and definite for the wishy-washy watercolours. It just looks like a smoother block colour treatment of the same old thing. Maybe it's just a boring picture that lacks much artistic flair. More wiggly lines more washy colour that's what I'm aiming for when I think of watercolour illustration. ...not this really.

So then I had another go and produced this.

It's Gulgog Tuftoof's characters from our Grot Mob collaborative fiction project Give it yer best Grot. Cutty the absent minded Mek and his minder Weazul who is stopping his crazy ork boss from blowing himself up.

Another watercolour effort this time with maybe a bit more... artiness going on.

I too would have went for cutting out the neat looking shield from that container - it would look cool on my armor and cool protects You better, right?!

So here is the story and artwork associated with Blunder The Wonder-grot. In Limerick form!

There once was a grot known as Blunder
Whose tale is a legend of wonder
His blunderbuss shots
Could floor a Bull-Grox
And even rend armour asunder.

One thing that the Ork Mind can do
Is to make what they think to come true
And the more that believe
The more power they receive
And that's how the grot's power grew

A blunderbuss so it was told
That could blast with a power ten fold
Stupendously shot
By a wonderous grot
Was truly a sight to behold.

Orks from all over da Waaagh
Heard tell of this rising green star
They came to his side
from far and from wide
To witness his Blundering power

The more that attended the show
The greater his power would grow
Each target they stood
Got blasted real good
There was nothing that grot couldn't blow.



And so began Blunder's adventures
Though battlefields, buildings and trenches
His blunderful buss
Caused such a big fuss
And attracted a lot of attention.

Now the tanks of the Imperial Guard
Though their armour be ever so hard
They seemed to just melt
When his power they felt
Like a knife through a slab of Squig-lard



As the Blunder-Waaagh gathered momentum
The humans just could not prevent them
From blowing to bits
All their tanks and their ships
He blasted whatever they sent him.

But alas came a terrible day
When a Titan came stomping his way.
Took a shot to the head
And fell down like the dead
and squashed him beneath where it lay.



And so ends the legend of Blunder
Whose blunderbuss echoed like thunder
Gork-damn, what a Grot!
and a zogging good shot
A mighty peculiar Grot-wonder

:The end:

Been writing and drawing again of late. Got this one finished at last.

All the characters from Give it yer best Grot! Bounce on over there for all there is to know about them.

Then pulling a scene from Smirking Da Chosen one


Smirking goes crowd surfing at Da Grot Liberation Party.

Couple more in the works but I'm struggling for inspiration. I've got any number of scenes from the story I could have a look at though some of them I'm feeling a bit stuck on. Sometimes I've got an idea of how it should look but when I try it it doesn't come out right. It's frustrating when an image is clear in your mind but your skill is lacking when it's pencil and paper time.

Four more doodles for the sketchbook this weekend.

First up it's a solo rendering of Bschwi1's character Slimey from Give it yer best Grot.

I gave him a mallet for "tenderizing" his squig food.

Then it's back to Smirking Da Chosen One, from a chapter soon to be posted...


and from a chapter a Looooong way off being posted.


and sticking with all smirking all the da time I invented a new character,

I give you Mogz, the Ship's Squig on Da BizMork.

Another couple of pictures a from Smirking Da Chosen one for you all today.


Smirking takes a shot at someone with a hand cannon.


And Smirking feels a bit ill and barfs all over their plans.

Lots more little character sketches in the making so watch this space for more soon, and thanks for visiting the grot-life blog.

A few more little character pics for the sketchbook.


First up its Grunt. He's a big grot.


Then we've got Swab. Ten-hut!


Smudge is on the lookout for enemy fliers.


Mogz has caught another one.


And Sleekit is chillin' on holiday.


Thanks for looking dakkanauts.

Another batch of doodles from the Smirking collection for you all today.


Smudge has been busy brewing up another batch of his famous Gutt-Rott.


Orkdom's answer to Tom Cruise, it's UzKop, the flashiest top-gun fighter ace of da Morka-Wing.


And GrodMek's Grotbomb gets a Morka style make over with a nice lick of red paint.(To make it go even faster of course) and a tidy tricycle wheel undercarriage. Though, I'm not sure what purpose the wheels might serve considering the plan was always to have it carried and released like a bomb from a bomber. Rule of cool I guess.

Anyway, not much left from this flurry of sketchbook activity. Hope you've enjoyed them. I have a half finished watercolour on the go of an air-sea battle but it's proving beyond my brushmanship and I'm struggling. Maybe I'll come back to it later. If so, as always you'll see it here first.

Thank you very much. I hope that you enjoy the story too.

I'll admit I'm a bit concerned that Smirking Da Chosen One has taken a really wierd turn in the last couple of chapters and I'm not at all sure it's making sense to people or if I'm confusing the life out of my readers. But based on what's written and still to post its only getting wierder. I just hope people are following along and not too confused. Hopefully the pictures help.
