The Sun's Been Stabbed by AshleyCope The Sun's Been Stabbed by AshleyCope
Haven't painted Murkoph in a while. This one's based on something he spouted out a while back. It is not for the sensitive.

The sun's been stabbed and clatters down,
Spattering its gold shit all around.
Now the dying thing's gone to ground
And I hear screams and other sounds.
I think tonight I'll cut the throat
Of the Widow Shreve's billy goat.
She can milk me prick and go to gloat
That she saw the prize hidden 'neath my coat.
Then I'll eat a fat priest's eyes
And if me prick's still on the rise
I'll see if I can't improvise
and fuck his eye-holes ere he dies.
O glorious night; O glorious plot.
Glorious possibilities heavy and hot
Stuck behind my navel in a Gordian knot.
I'll hammer this city's greasy twat.
--Murkoph, poet laureate of Sharteshane

There's a cemetary outside of town where they bury heretics (as opposed to those prescribing to the local religion which dictates the dead be burned) and most treat the cemetary like a trash dump and unload their crap there. Murk finds it an ironic, pleasant spot to camp during the day and would like to show you his knife, weary traveler.

He sort-of reminds me of Stingy Jack.

you amaze me. Incredible!! :heart:
So, I have to tell you. I randomly came across this picture years ago. I thought it was cool, and saved it to my wallpapers folder, which I have set to cycle randomly. Then, unrelatedly, I started reading your webcomic just last year. Read the last few pages, had totally forgotten about this picture, until just today when it popped up, and I was like, "...that looks like Murkoph..... holy shit I think that's Murkoph.... *sees signature* It IS MURKOPH." O.O It kinda freaked me out. I checked, I've had this picture on my computer for four years, and now having gotten a glimpse of his character in the comic it made it that much more creepy.
(Still an awesome picture, just creepier than ever.)
