The Creep by tbolt The Creep by tbolt
Lyrics are modified from "The Creep" by Radiohead. This was the primary inspiration for this picture. I think this is the most characters I've very drawn in a setting...

Story:

This is Roth at the only dance he ever attended at High School. His little brother urged him to. This dance celebrates the first state championship won by Roth's High School in years.

The wolf is Biff. Biff has two number ones on his chest because he's that good! Biff is smart, he can compute his own play statistics, and his teammates, and his opponent's, and adjust his strategies accordingly (Biff actually is smart. He also understands that to get into a girl's panties, one doesn't go on about one's statistics. One talks about her hair, outfit, etc. Biff is hoping to score twice tonight, once for each one on his chest.

The Skunkette is Carla Roth's crush. But he has no clue how to deal with her. She's one of the best academics in the school as well. She's also the caprain of the cheer-leading squad. Theoretically she's Biff's property by school tradition. Being one of the "Beautiful People" she's not even allowed to acknowledge Roth's existence.

What happened later that night would nearly get Roth expelled.

Hee, hee, thanks kindly for the offer, but Roth is rather shy, you may need to get together with Zack, his younger brother. I need to draw him. But he will be found in the DJ booth running the music and lights! He'll know what to do! =^^=

Ya know, I hated HS too.... HS should only be for the education of pre-teen and teen persons. As a social mixing bowl, for most, it's a colossal mind-f__k.

It's funny, I was just looking again today, at the WIP of this you'd sent me back in Dec, and I liked it. I didn't even know you'd finished it and posted it! Thats how remiss I have been on DA lately. *Coyote steps into the automatic self ass kicking machine and pulls the rope*

Good work!

Thanks very much for the comment, I've been on line so little, I really miss talking to you guys!

One thing I remember talking about everyone regarding HS politics is that universally everyone feels pressure from some sector that ruins what could potentially be a really fun time of life...

Ah, yes the horrors of high school dances..and adolescence in general, for that matter. ^^;

This automatically makes me think of back to the future...partly because I just recently saw the first 2 of them, and it doesn't hurt that pictured is a sexually promiscuous jock named Biff, as well. ^^'

Makes me glad I was home-schooled for 7th-grade onward. Better to avoid that BS.

Poor Roth; I know how he feels.

A very good picture, my friend! :) You get better all the time.

Well, it'd certainly have its cliques and exclusive groups... provided God doesn't destroy souls outright as an act of mercy. *shrugs* But I think I'll leave the theology discussion for another time and place.

Ah, the school social order. We were segregated into various groups: At the top you had the Jocks, Cheerleaders, Preps, the "beautiful" people of society. Further down you had Band Geeks, the Glee club people, The general academic populace. At the bottom you had the SPED's, Nerds, and Freaks. Generally speaking, people at the top of the social order never freely associated with someone of lower status, especially a social bottom-feeder like Roth.

The only time Carla would ever deal with Roth directly would be if she needed to speak to him as a part of classwork...

Why's it say "fooball" and why's he grabbing his crotch? Still, very nice picture.

Heh, "Fooball" came from an old comedic skit about "Dain Bramage" where a football player tells a reporter: "If it were not for fooball, I would not be in fooball today!" =^^=

Well, it could be itchy, or I just didn't give enough perspective to show that actually it is supposed to be extending a bit out from his body...

Thank you kindly! =^^=

Lemme guess, Roth gets insanely jealous, goes into a bezerker rage then decapitates Biff with a punch bowl? 8D

Also, Creep's one of my favourite RH songs :3

Well, perhaps not quite as dramatic, but it will be a night that Biff will never forget, and take about a week or so to recover from! :D

Creep s a cathartic song! =^^= (Well they did clean up the lyrics a bit for the Rock Band game, which I think made one more sympathetic to the singer... A really great song!)

I think they had to change one word, from the lyrics I've seen online it goes she's so F*** special. They changed it to she's so very special. It definitely takes a lot of sarcasm out of the song...
