So, at Magic the Gathering tournaments, and at conventions players attend, a common request is to sketch a little something on a playmat.
Over time, they got more elaborate, and now they're to the point of being basically paintings, only more difficult, because it's marker on fabric. Which I've found to be the most unforgiving medium so far. And that includes shaving and tattooing wild gorillas.
At Gen Con last year, I basically told everyone they could leave their playmat with me, along with a bribe, and I'd sketch up their mats and ship them home. Between me and a few folks helping me run my booth, we lost track of how many we'd promised to do. I went home with hundreds. Each requiring several hours of work. Suffice it to say, many people waited a very, very long time for their mats, and I decided I needed to rethink how I'm going to do my playmat fanservice. And that I should try to convince Copic to sponsor me.
This is just one that I thought turned out kinda nice. Chandra powering up.
