Plight of the Homo Baculus by JohnSu Plight of the Homo Baculus by JohnSu
Here we go! Another contest entry, and another stick-man humor piece!

This contest happens to be for ([link]), so none of these characters are of my artistic ovum. And while I'm using latin, I might as well explain that "Homo Baculus" is what I believe to be the scientific name for "Stick Man." If any of you are experts in latin or classification, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Unlike my aberration that was Atla, this one follows the original character design much more closely, except for perhaps their garb and colors. I am rather satisfied with the relative success in importing them, but I am more pleased with the wood than anything. This is the first time I've drawn firewood that was collected rather than bought cut from a retailer. Such jagged edges! Such raw bark! Ahhh~ *caresses the tree carcass*

No. Homo means "man" in Latin. You're probably thinking of the prefix "homo."

well (i'm not an expert so i might be wrong, i've only been taking latin for 3 years and i'm failing) homo means people, but virus (pronounced: weer us (not pronounced like virus like the flu or whatever)) means man so i think the proper phrase would be "virus baculus" but hey i'm failing so i'm probably wrong

Hahaha, this made me laugh... poor stick man.

I know this is rather late, and I'm sure many people have not beaten me to it and it's really old now, but... You know that Baculus IS a stick, but did you know it is a stick used to beat slaves?

Latin's fun.
