I love Puddleglum. He really isn’t as glum as he tries to be (the other Marshwiggles were right about that), and the Harfang giants part was as much as a character developement moment for Puddleglum as it was for the kids. Mainly because he admitted that he could have prevented Jill and Eustace from going to the castle if he wanted to, but didn’t as he actually wanted to escape the cold aswell. And of course there’s the epic moment where he drowns a whole botte of giant liquor and gets roaring drunk. He’s such an easy going guy overall, though, with a wicked sense of humor and a great outlook on life.
If you love Puddleglum, I love you. ^^
One of best characters ever; and you draw exacly the way I always imagined him. :)
Omg I love you too! Puddleglum really is such a rich character, so I was surprised at the relatively small amount of attention he was getting on tumblr. Therefore I wanted to contribute!
Wow, you imagined him like that too? That’s awesome! I wanted to draw him as the “good-looking chap” that he is. XD Pleasure to meet you!
=D He is obviously my favourite Narnia character. I guess I always like these so-pesimistic-but-generally-funny-in-that charaters, ones with greenish skin and those who are somehow connected with water so he combine all those features very well. I love how he tries to stay the most rational through whole book, and how he sometimes irritates Jill and Eustace (for sure I can imagine that he COULD be iritating in some moments what doesn’t bother me to still love him) but without things he say they would probably never complete their “mission”. He saves the situation not only in the confrontation with Lady in the Green Kritle but he’s controlling it his own way all the time when kids aren’t. I like his sense of humour, and of course drunk Puddleglum=best Pudleglum moment. And yeah, in my mind he is also hmmm, atractive. Weird thing, but when I was reading the book for first I always identified myself with a Jill a bit so when she kissed him I was all like “omg holy shit yes!” because I liked Puddleglum so much and the character who was just like me just kissed a character which I liked and whoaaa book satisfied me another time, I like this moment too.
Yep, you basically drew his best scenes and you are first “Puddleglum person” which I talk to, so I’m really happy.
Whole marshwigle race seems to be interesting, isn’t it? It’s a bit sad that there weren’t any possibility to know others of them. Lonely living in wigwams, spending time fisihing, thinking and smoking; eventually working as rafters… that’s something different from all these “partying” fauns, talking animals etc. I think if I was a Narnian I would want to be marshwiggle and it would be awesome!
If I made some mistakes in this text… no, I’m not sorry, I’m only letting you know that english is something I never learned correctly and I probably won’t but I understand it well. :P
