Stop That Cart! by wbd Stop That Cart! by wbd
What nefarious deeds must Shiori, noble guard of the Rockhall market be stopping?

Well, none, really. What happened is that someone tied their cart to a market stall, instead of a tie post. The cart started to roll away and nearly pulled the stall down. Shiori, thinking quickly, drew her sword and cut the rope. Now she has to chase the cart and later on admonish the owner. Happens every couple weeks or so.

Art Notes:

I felt like drawing a bit of an "alt universe" version of Shiori the Mall Security Officer (one of my original characters). I drew this in Paint Tool SAI.

Also, I wanted to draw a bit of an action picture, but exaggerated. I had a look at one of Preston Blair's books on animation, and in it was a bunch of neat run and walk cycles (viewed from the side). I decided to pick a keyframe and draw something similar, but from a different angle (as Shiori is much less cartoonish in proportions than the figures shown in the book), and also with a somewhat exaggerated perspective.

Probably not- Chivalry as commonly understood emerged a bit later than the Norman period, if I'm reading my history correctly. What I drew was middle ages, but maybe with some modern conveniences.

Just checkin'...just that I heard the term 'Stop that cart!' in a Medieval thing and the first thing that came to mind was a class-based FPS game XD....which Chivalry is. Then I realized that you could just be stopping a regular medieval cart. Whoops.
