Fresh from the Prize Mines, here's A Thing I won from this year. First thing I've ever won from a Desert Bus. Yay!

The DoM logo's always been a bit troubling, mostly because it depends on a flame I generated once with an ancient plugin I don't remember at all, meaning it's a raster image that doesn't at all scale and I can't remake it exactly the same.

I know some people take issue with the trend towards more simplified logos with flat colors and gradients, but the advantage is that lends itself to vectorization well, which means it scales.

Given all of that, I feel this is an acceptable improvement.

There we go. I think this will work. There's a bit of an oddity with the spines where the back cover art is bleeding in a bit, but given I've got everything as correct as I can get there on my end, I'm chalking that up to variances in printing for now.

So, the concept of a hardcover book is feasible. Shame my clever idea of hiding doodles in the wrap area won't quite work. Darn. But, I think I can work with this.

Two MORE vinyl stickers added to my ridiculous set of stickery things. Technically, it's two versions of the same pic (this account's current avatar, in both masked and unmasked varieties), but it still counts.

I got this idea in my head based on the fact that nobody really *likes* pie charts. I thought it was funny, at least.

See? Way too many details. I might need to crank up the focus blur even more.

Well, this was surprising. An old friend of mine who goes by the name Bluez showed up, appropriately out of the blue, and gave me some DoM fanart of Matt! The fact that is is in blue is coincidence. Take a look!

It's here! It's up! There's actually a 2020 Dementia of Magic holiday wallpaper! It's in the Gallery! Check it out!

Um... what sort of USB hub did I just purchase, that it has Smart Charging, Human Sensing, TRUE POWER?

I have to admit, I can at least respect a microwaveable burrito with this level of precision in its cooking instructions.

An unnamed beach elf and his doll, both of whom run a muffin tent. I figured I really ought to do more with dollmages in the DoM, and these two are a result of that.

That's all, just five sketches. Enjoy!

An unnamed human who runs a snake meat booth. Her booth and her appearance are both tightly bound to an inside joke between myself and a few friends. Don't worry about it.

An unnamed human/dwarf duo who run a BBQ booth. You haven't seen them yet; just wait'll you see their booth.

An unnamed beach elf who ran a sandwich booth, seen in a narrative montage. I'm not fully happy with the perspective hackery on his cane, but I'm still proud of his ridiculous hat and the sandwich fixin arc.

Madame Boutrix, a wax museum proprietor. She was only seen from the back, controlling one of her wax mannequins, before Alex and Matt decided to walk right on by. I actually had her drawn out in more detail like this beforehand, but didn't use anything else (the other sketches I'm about to dump were made after their respective facts).

In today's test sketch, the tricks I've been missing with this pose have always been the shoulders and the fact that the wrist should sit BELOW the level where the hand is.

Well, that and the fact that my style doesn't usually give distinct hips on which a hand can sit, per se.
