I'm a big ol' MST3K fan, but the critter the Minstrels run into isn't a reference. However, if you want to take it as such and consider me clever, Feel free! I've been trying to find reference material for the Minstrels, as I'd love to draw the jam. Especially Cantus playing the bongos. I can see him rockin' out on those things. Hey, he's off the clock and doesn't need to act all mysterious and wise, time to get down with his Fraggly self! I'm glad that the way I have been writing the characters has been coming across well, to some at least. My main intention, beside simply telling a story, is just to show some things in a realistic light. The actions and characters may be fantastic (as in, based on fantasy) but the underlying emotions are always real.
