See Me Striding

Spinning off the previous strip…

When I considered this strip, I had to imagine what a flumph’s mount would look like. A bigger flumph was one option, but the idea of a floating gas bag on a gas bag seemed redundant. And a little like people riding about on giant apes. Another option was a big bouncy ball that inflated and the flumph bounced around on. Like a mobile beanbag. In the end I decided to go with what I named the “flumph strider”. It has big long legs and extra tentacles. Plus, nothing says “unnatural anatomy” like three legs, and there’s just something appropriate about a blobish tentacled creature riding along on a tripod.
