Illustration Friday - Hierarchy
Even comic characters can fall upon hard times.
Help a fellow out, won't you?
There's a joke/pun in there if you look for it. You may have to mispronounce something on purpose.
This entry's thought process: My first idea was to draw an old king and a line of unprincely princes behind him, each brandishing some devious sort of weapon. Such as poison, dagger, tennis racket, etc. Each son would be intent on usurping the family member directly ahead of him (in the line to the throne).
But not long after that I decided I wasn't in the mood to draw backstabbers and this pun popped into my head and demanded that it be drawn. And besides, I thought it'd be fun to draw Archie.
