  • The dragon isn't the only ornery critter people are concerned about in fantasies. There are plenty of other cantankerous creatures, such as today's grumpy, green ogre. If you'd rather have a happy ogre, just adjust the tilt of his eyebrows, and you'll give him a happy persona instead.

  • I suppose one of the most popular characters in the castle would have been the jester, whose antics were intended take one's mind off possible fates such as being eaten by a dragon or run through with a lance.

Dragons are always a popular option on the board, but sometimes I become tired of painting the same one over and over.

  • Dogs are known for their big, snuffly noses, so I thought a sheep dog would be a perfect subject for this week's Big Nose Buddy. This design reminds me a little of the Shaggy D.A.

  • If you're painting at county fair this year, this is the perfect design for the animal-loving kids attending the event. I'll admit my example didn't have as big a nose as I was trying for, so feel free to expand the size of your pig's nose as much as you like to make him a true Big Nose Buddy.
