Oh my goodness. This is unbelievable. I never thought I'd see one of my favourite detectives in a piece on DA. And that he's with all the characters from the Princess Bride makes it even more hilarious.

But I agree, he will always be Columbo to me too. Thank you for doing a wonderful job on such beloved characters.

Oh just  one more thing....

I love your peice. Beautifully constructed.I'm just curious as to why Peter Falk is portrayed as his star role of Columbo and not the Grandfather he played in the movie?

Falk will always be Columbo to me. In this case, I imagined Columbo trying to figure out what true love really is through the telling of the story of Princess Bride.

:la: I love this movie and this artwork! You managed to capture the characters' personalities perfectly while at the same time giving them your own artistic flair.

Fezzik and the priest, my two favorite movie characters, are unforgettable in this piece; while Inigo and Vizzini give the piece their characteristic shine.

Simply put, I love this piece! :iconexcitedlaplz:

It fits so well for the idea of Crazy for Cult... this is one of those movies that gets quoted on a daily life basis. I even opened my maid of honor toast to my friends at their wedding with "wuv, truw wuv..." well played, sir :)
