Usagi (or maybe not so Usagi) weekly challenge Feb. 12-19

Postby jabba359 » Tue Feb 12, 2019 21:06 +0000

Okay, for this week I'm looking to see who can find the simplest character design that Stan has done in a published work. This character must have a speaking role and doesn't have to be in the Usagi universe (though they can be). For example, you might find a very simple drawing of Usagi (such as when he's just a squiggle off in the distance), but that's just a simple rendition of a complex character design (he generally has two swords, TONS of dots on his clothing, scar over his eye, etc.), so wouldn't be a good choice. I'm looking for a character that is designed to always be simple.

Obviously, "simple" is subjective, so I'll pick the one I think best fits. While I have a particular character in mind as a potential answer, you might find someone even better. So if you think of a character, please post a picture of them below.

Any Neko Ninja with a speaking part. Simple design, they all look the same until the mask is removed and you immediately know who they are based on their design in any Usagi book. I can't post a picture for some reason but hopefully this link will be acceptable :D
The Treaty, page 3. On that page, at least three common Neko ninjas have speaking parts.

Dolf is pretty simple, though he does have a face, shaded hair, and some fancy shoes (I'll admit, I came up with the question based on him). I wonder if Stan has ever drawn a talking rock or something strangely simple like that? Sounds like something that could happen in a Sasuke story (that's not a hint, at least not that I'm aware of :wink:).

How about Riblet? No shaded hair or fancy shoes (or any clothes). But he does have a face. :wink: :lol: Peace, maka

Didn't he draw a blob-like creature? Although I'm not sure if he ever spoke.

Hey, that is a pretty good one I wouldn't have thought of. Is that from a Bone universe story? It looks like a stupid rat creature in one of the other panels.

One of the various Yokai he's done, perhaps?

Yes, it's from the Bone Universe. Collected in "Stupid, Stupid Rat-Tails". Peace, maka

There is a famous non-speaking rock in the Usagi Yojimbo universe. If I remember correctly, it sits atop a torii (gate) with the letters FF inscribed on it. I haven't seen it in years, but I remember there being a contest about it.

EDIT: The famous rock I was referring to can be found in issue 143.

I was way off. Rib is the blob-like creature I had in mind, but he is much more detailed than I remembered.

Well, Steve submitted the character I had in mind when I made the contest but Maka came in with a submission that I think is just as simple, so I decided to let the randomizer pick between the two and it chooses...Maka!

I guess the question of the week is back to you.
