The gnomes heard a lot of stories about the region's orcs, and to be honest, many of them are true. But they're not too good at sorting out physical differences between similarly sized races. Orcs and humans just look alike you know? That guy has city clothes, so he got to be a large human.
In the last days, Fairy Dust appeared in a few other comics:
Love Kills Slowly
"Forget the bag, take that hat off and lemme see them ears"
Well, my comic doesn't have an official colour scheme, but orcs are green in most fantasy works. I imagine most readers see them that way, though I didn't ask. So dude is unofficially green, unless I decide it doesn't look right.
And if the gnome doesn't notice that, she won't notice pointy ears either!
Just out of curiosity, is that Luigi of Mario fame driving the truck?
No no no no no, his name is Alvise!
Which, according to Wikipedia, is the Etruskian variant of Luigi.
Ok maybe it is Luigi, just a little bit!
