Edit: tweaked a cloud and added some picture links in the bottom half of the description
On a particular island, there grew a tree that was rumored to be able to guide a person to their future love. Upon hearing this rumor, three young bachelors set out to find this tree.
And they found it. After a week of not being able to figure out how to obtain guidance from a tree, they decided to chop it down and see which direction it fell in so as to travel that way. However, instead of falling, the tree simple crumbled into a pile of wood at their feet.
After a week of frustration and arguing, they ended up making a tub boat out of the Love Tree. They set out with it on the seas, letting the Love Wood drift them towards people they might marry.
20 years later, two of the three have settled down with families of their own, but the third guy is still out there looking for a lady. The children of his colleagues hear of his solitude and this gross boat, and out of pity and curiosity decide to join him on his adventures.
From right to left, we have Nick Butcher, Pan Baker, and Judy.
Nick Butcher is the only one of the original three to have not found a mate yet. Why can't the women of the world see the charm
of this leathery lion-maned man who wanders the sea in a tub and always wears the same thing?
Pan Baker is a pâtissier in the family business. He was born with Pillsbury disease, which causes a light, buttery dough to form on his skin when poked. It can be immediately formed into almost any kind of bread, but unfortunately it becomes stale and rock-hard within moments and smells and tastes awful. He is embarrassed by this condition.
Judy is the heiress of a paraffin plant. She has spent considerable time developing Candle Arms. Her family is impressed by her focus and ingenuity, but is also concerned by her choice of how to waste her life. She secretly likes Pan, and wants to one day eat his disease bread
Well, that was a longer story than usual, and there are a lot of unanswered questions in this picture: What are they fighting
? How did they get up so high in the air? Where do they plan to go from here?
I don't know. But at least I got to draw a wild old man and a peripheral girl and a bread boy. I also got to try some new clouds and landscapes! Very fun.

EDIT: Judy still has arms. Candle Arms are removable.
