"Look how ****ing awesome I am!"
Shut up, Worth, I'm writing your intro and I'm putting more in it than THAT!
Anyway, please ignore the crazy brilliant weirdo for a moment, and let me explain how he came to be...
Late one night, I was having a discussion with a fellow webcomic fan about how Doc Worth and Banquo White from Goodbye Chains should never, ever be allowed to meet, cos they'd just argue eachother to death. But then we decided that actually it'd be rather fun, so I insisted she draw the imagined meeting, then I wanted to draw fanart too only I fail miserably at drawing people, so I let myself be talked into MAKING Worth, instead. This was about three o clock in the morning, when anything seems like a good idea, so the next day I was rather less sure I could manage such a task, but didn't want to give up on it, so Worth began. I made his legs from pink sparkly pipecleaners, so he's under orders never to take his trousers off in public (which perhaps is a wise thing to have warned him about, what with him being Worth I can imagine him doing that just to be annoying, heh), and after a minor false start where I had some sort of mental block on the concept of left and right hands and made two left hands not once but TWICE, despite having perfect live reference material righthereinfrontofme, I sculpted his hands, feet and face from a mixture of Fimo and SuperSculpey or whatever that other stuff's called. He's dressed in a shirt made of the silk lining of an old handbag I scrounged from my mum for crafty use in crafty things, and felt for his jacket and trousers cos that's so easy to sew.
"Argh, jus' shut up and get on with it, they don't wanna know all that, they jus' wanna look at me!"
Ok, Worth, now move your dead plant off my desk before I throw it in the bin for you, and stop drinking my antifreeze, that's not fit for human consumption!
Doc Worth is from the most awesome webcomic in existance, Hanna is Not a Boy's Name ( [link]
), and belongs to Tessa Stone ( [link]
) so I hope she doesn't mind me borrowing him and having him lounging round my house making a nuisance of himself in so many ways (the other day he'd got hold of a sword from one of my other models and was trying to impale the nose of a model pony named Ben cos he thinks it stole and ate his cigarette, heh)
- edited to add, to save having to answer the same question ten more times in a row (I don't mind, really, but it gets difficult trying to think of new ways to say the same reply, lol), yes, I did make all the furniture and props and stuff, except the coffee and beer mugs, the park bench he's lazing on in the top photo, and that yellow plastic laundry basket which I suspect he's far more likely to use to contain all his unread bills and complaint letters than he ever would even consider using it for laundry, lol)
and also, this : [link]
MiniWorth was angry that I posted him here...til he realised he could use his sudden popularity to try to scrounge free stuff
