Discworld fan art - Sword of Passione by zazB Discworld fan art - Sword of Passione by zazB
I was reading Terry Pratchett's Moving Pictures and the description of the poster for Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibler's first movie (Sword of Passione) caught my attention. I felt like I had to draw it.
The text is taken word for word from the book, I tried to get every mistake and every exclamation mark. I didn't put all the monsters that Victor is supposed to fight because while it may have been more faithful to the description, the composition would have been truly horrible (as it's supposed to be... but I just couldn't!)

The fonts I used are Devinne Swash and Muffaroo.

 Doubtless when these new-fangled 'Moving Pictures' reached wherever the Silver Horde were hanging out at the time, Genghis Cohen took one look at the poster and growl "Barbarian Hero wearing a SHIRT? he might as well pop some trousers on over his underwear and start milking a d--- cow."

 Please allow me to proffer my most profuse compliments zazB for your most excellent work upon this piece of art! (also for being able to draft Morporkian spelling with a straight face).;) (Wink)

Thank you!
The text is taken 100% from the book, so I have no credit there. Though, I will admit that it was not easy keeping the spelling as it was, I had to triple check if it was my mistakes or Dibbler's original text. And it made me laugh each time I read it!
