That was beyond funny. SkekKel think HE wants to be asked first ^^ I wouldn't ask what he does apart of advicing the important Skeksis... But we all know, at the other hand!

I love Chamberlain who still thinks he is the right person to ask questions. And Shod! He is so cute! ^^

XD I bet he does!!!
HEHEHE OH YES...can't blame him...SkekLa sort of thinks podlings are cute, but they were also the cause of hi/her finger's injury and maim,not to mentuion his fall from grace before the Emperor...so imagine there is a dual strong thing between love and hate for them in there!

Heheheh SkekSil KNOWS he is the one! XD As always!
And SkekShod,...he just fixes things his way, MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND!

I'm happy you like it though!

I must ask you, I'm curious: Have you  watched the Dark Crystal (Where these guys are from) or did you simply find this comic amusing?

I have only seen clips from it. I want to see more.

I learned about it from a friend of mine who has said it scares him as an adult and still can't watch it.

He would not be!!!
He would be absolutely SURE that he should be first!!!
Why,even royalty on Old Earth took it for granted that they should rank first in any public assemblage...and,had aristocratic prerogatives held into the Computer Age,any king (or Emperor) would have believed that he should be the first to be heard on it.

Heheheh, I know...I just let the others skeksis speak a bit for themselves in the sake of commedy!... SkekSo would have never tolerated such a trespass!!! And if he did, he would have had the offender severely punished!...Possibly lowered in their position in the court.
Here I aimed more for comedy than for realism...If I had taken things more seriously, SkekSo would have just said "What is it you want to ask?" and the rest would have remained in awkward resentful (though seemingly respectful ) silence...XD

-Now that I re-think about what I drew there...I believe  SkekSo in this comic didn't even notice any word the others said in each's favor...he was just standing there, ready to answer, while the others tussled among themselves back there, until he got tired of the mumbling and grunting and shushed them off!

I have a question for SkekAyuk :what are the favorite foods of the skeksis? Where do his culinary ideas come from? Also, what was up with those live creatures served for dessert?Isn't it hard to enjoy eating something that runs off your plate?

oh my god! I am in total stitches, not only is the art magnificent the humour is so fitting and suits them all! The High Priest if my favorite Skeksis so I enjoyed your portrayal of him here but the part with SkekShod had me in stitches!, no correction, all of it had me in stitches!.

WHEEE! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
All your comments are so kind and encouraging! ^^
I will try to always keep the humor as it is now: not exactly grotesque, not all the way black, but a white-though-twisted humor! :nod:
Ah, skekZok...soon there will be one reply to a question which was made to him!
It's one more till that one!
Hehehe I know what you mean...in this first one I wanted to have them all talk, in order to reply as much as to introduce themselves a bit in what their moods are like and what they do...and SkekShod...I couldn't but imagine him cutting short someone (It ended up being his administrative superior SkekSil) by shaking a coin bag in front of their faces and just saying "GOLD. Let me talk and there's GOLD for you."...XD
Fine old bribery ways!...

Oooh, well I'm glad my comments have been encouraging then :D. As sometimes I feel my comments aren't too great :p.


wheeee! I can't wait XD. I'm trying to think of a question to ask one of them but I can't think XDD. I want to ask SkekZok something and Shod too!.


question for SkekZok, "what's more annoying, a podling choir member singing out of key, or the chamberlains whining?"

Not at all, my friend! Your words are kind and do aid me to want and draw more and better!

:nod: I'm happy that you'll be waiting for it! 
Oh okay!...Whenever you want, they'll be there for you! Zok is very attentive all the time and Shod...well, he doesn't talk much so I don't exactly know what he thinks of the "Ask" thing, but if he doesn't cooperate I'll bribe him into answering! XD

I took note of that question for Zok!...I've already scripted his answer, and will soon start sketching it!...There's some others before on the line, but it'll be done as soon as possible! ^^

I'm sure I'll lave and hate them at the same time.

I think I'll be in desperate need of your humor when I'm done. :P I think I'm going to be sad. A lly may favourite characters will die, my favourite characters will hate each other, my favourite characters will be horrible people with loveable qualities, ect....

smeagolisme Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014  Professional General Artist
Oh, I could say the same thing! :nod:
All my favorites end up dying/dissapearing/being humiliatingly defeated etcetera...
but I guess that's because I tend to like "evil/ neutral tending to nasty, but with likeable traits" characters over "heroes"...
It's not that I despise heroes, but they bore me a bit...and also I find many of them "too perfect to be believable". Not that there isn't good people in the world...but THAT good?...Meh...I'll just stick with imperfect weirdos where I belong! :w00t:

SorisSquirrel Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Student Writer
I feel the same way. I generally find heros to be boring, but as the world has grown to love darker heroes I've sort of developed a fondness for the lighter ones.

I think maybe it depends on the hero and the situation.

My goal in life shall be to write about a good lighter hero that I don't find boring.
Reply
:iconsmeagolisme:
smeagolisme Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Professional General Artist
Some lighter heroes are lovable!...I just find it hard to sympathize with them...but...I mean, who doesn't love someone like Frodo for example?...They can be annoyingly cute and good, but you gotta like them...

YES IT DOES! ^^ Some heroes and situations make you get more interest than others!

THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!
Heroes do not REALLY need sexual traumas, twisted pasts, horrible childhoods or psychological impairments to be cool...A good hero is a person which you can actually sympathize with, and you can feel for him. Worry for his fate...follow his path with interest...THAT WOULD BE A GOOD HERO...And it could be a lighter one! ^^
I would love it if you tried! ^^ Writing offers the chance to create a world of your own after all! That is a great thing!

They are, in a way. As I see them, the Mystics are the part which is more "emotionally mature" and thus more passive, meditative, though sometimes procrastinating and somewhat too inactive. Then the skeksis are emotionally more like small children: impatient, whimsy and too full of drive and want... Which makes them dangerous and twisted, and sometimes evil.
I love them just how they are anyway! They have always amused me much!

WHY OF COURSE YOU CAN!!!   I would love you to make them as much questions as you like!...Even more than one for each if it fits your will!...:clap: I'll be glad to draw the replies! 

Be my guest!

All skeksis: WHAT??? ...retardedblueX( 

SkekSo: EXCUSE ME?...WE are the ones making this interview with her!!!
MAKE SILENCE YOU PETTY HUMAN!oldretardedblueFUUU 

SkekSo: Chamberlain, step forth and carry my word.

SkekSil: Yes mylord, Hmmmm!....  Lady weasel-girl, you are cordially invited by our beloved emperor skekSo the great and luminous, *may his plumage always be abundant and lustrous*, to continue to interview us as much as you like. It will be a honor for us to have you here and answer every question you wish to make! hhhMMMMMmm! ( bow)retardedblue'-' 


*Sorry: penguins, not skeksis...hmmmmmm I might just make some emoticons out of skeksis...O.o...

OK here's my question for Zok: What do the Skeksis believe in? Do they have their own gods that they worship? Do they believe in powerful spirits or the idea about powerful beings from other worlds? Something like that.

Thanks for commenting! I'm very proud that you like it and find it funny! :dance:

Then, YES! I did!...It's very well written, and...hmm, I may say some things without spoiling it, I think I'll say no names so people won't know who am I talking about...though YOU'LL KNOW!

You actually had me very worried on that internal wound...My poor little baby!!!..Not only he had to go through everything he hadalready been through,but being stabbed like that?...OUCH!!!!
I really thought he was going to die to it.
I must read the other one you mention! I didn't see it...In fact I was so concerned with his wound at that point of the story that I didn't notice anything else but "next chapter" XD
Great job! :clap:
