1-03. carbine


About the illustration
The description of the entry, and the added note that it was from a mounted musketeer… and I thought, “Trigger Happy Musketeer!!” :D A sadistic smile, a deep frown and curls sticking out from his hair. BANG BANG!!

I managed to only draw (my interpretation of) d’Artagnan when I intended to draw him and his friends, The Three Musketeers. I might add Athos, Porthos and Aramis when I find the time :D I feel guilty for portraying such a great character this way. Tsk tsk.

Sketchy style. Pencil tool in Adobe Photoshop CS.

 Hit counter.

Page 126, entry 9: 
carbine –
n. a short firearm, usually a rifle, originally for cavalry use. [from French carabine, weapon of the carabin ‘mounted musketeer’]

Personal opinion (about the entry)
From the entry, I’m not thinking of the carbine much as a weapon like how it would be used now. Hurhur *thinks* Hope I can pull the illustration off! :D

    i would think that the carbine is a gun wih the big snout-opening thing the cartoon characters always use in looney tunes. you know, the one that goes ,’boom’ and then a black smoke cloud comes out.

    To renchan,

    Erm, I think that’s a rifle? The character who is always trying to shoot down Bugs Bunny, right? I forgot his name, but gosh, the poor guy XDD;

    … and why? Haha.

    And I had to work fast! I have a set of rules of follow~ D; Haha, I wasn’t even thinking that, but we were talking about this toy a couple of weeks ago. It’s the toy from those slot machines or from the Darlie toothpaste box ;D
