Because I Don't Have an Optimus Penguin

For Optimistic Penguin's website 1st anniversary, Ms. Penguin held a contest to make figure comics. The catch is that they have to involve penguins. The only penguin I had was the Prinny Laharl that I got from Anime Expo. I didn't win the contest, but I'm still gonna post mine here just since I already made it a part of The Melancholy of Saber Lily special.

Yes, I realize I have a very, very strange sense of humour. It doesn't make sense if I didn't explain that this was for Optimistic Penguin's contest ^^; Oh and yeah, if I had an Optimus Penguin, I would totally use it here. Oh and I used the Prinny stylus for Prinny Laharl's blunt weapon.

I made it into two parts since I wanted to do "the glass is half full" joke :P Can't be more optimistic than that! This 4koma is really showing off my loot from AX, lol.

And don't worry. Saber Lily didn't really shove the stylus up you-know-where in the second panel. It's just inside the label near his butt.

I made it look like Prinny Laharl is crying, but still hard to see maybe. But how did the hands/wings stay near his eye like that? I'll answer that with the next photo.

Pins! That's right this Prinny is dangerous with pins stuck in his wings!

A closeup of the pin.

Yep, that glass is really half full... Or half empty depending on your point of view. I call it empty because I drank the Pepsi Max inside afterward.

You can see the other entries at Optimistic Penguin's site divided in parts 1, 2 and 3. No Prinnies were (permanently) harmed in the making of these 4koma comics.
