Mages, ten-man raiding, and other things that are awesome.

Tuesday Art Day: Bonus!

First of all, here is a doodle I did yesterday, not expressly for the purposes of Tuesday Art Day, but it works! Some people have asked me how doodley is a doodle (i.e. how long do I spend on something like this?) I’d say this is about a half hour doodle. So, above the ranks of an in-the-margin of a notebook type doodle, but not hours and hours either.

Secondly, I’d like to share with you a piece of art that is not MY art, but rather something I commissioned from the talented Aly Flock.

This was a surprise gift for Voss of the two of our characters; I just gave Aly some reference images and character info and this is what she came up with. It is perfect and I’m thrilled with it. Also, cupcakes?! How could she have known? Well, Millya’s love of baking was in her character description, but STILL.


These were the cupcakes I brought to Fannon’s barbecue. I’m just saying. Remarkable likeness, don’t you think? If you’re interested in the recipe, it’s here: Pink Champagne Cupcakes, and yes they were as awesome as they sound. They had a sort of…fizzy taste to them? I made mini versions too, but something odd about the champagne was causing the tiny wrappers to peel away from the cakes. They still tasted good.

(p.s. Yes, that is a cupcake caddy. What else do mages without access to magic carry their cupcakes in?!)

  1. Very nice, indeed, Vid! Ms. Flock is quite talented; that’s a great peice! And make sure you keep that Vosskah creature away from those cupcakes!

    As doodles go I think what you have here is quite impressive. The painting style is simple and effective while still being detailed. Me likes. I always find it interesting when playing and messing around with your medium produces something special. It happens to me all the time while screwing around with photos in Photoshop.

  2. Mmm, cupcakes!

    I love that commissioned art! So cute!

    It’s always interesting for me to see doodles and sketches from people with a painting background, because it’s a much different style than lineart sketching!

  3. The muffins look like your mage cookies 😛

    Do you limit yourself to a set time on purpose when you’re doodling? Also really love the piece from Aly Flock, it’s adorable ❤

  4. That is quite impressive for a doodle. You have no idea how jealous I am of your drawing ability.

    And thanks for linking that recipe, those look delicious!

  5. The art is impressive, but ..

    Wow. Those cakes look incredibly delicious.

  6. Really colourful ‘Doodles’ there. Wish my doodles turned out like that 😦

    That reminds me, I fancy picking up art, keep them coming!

  7. […] them in the oven.  They were delicious, just so you know.  I’m debating trying Vid’s pink champagne cupcakes this weekend or next.  I just have to decide how to do so while feeling guilt free from […]

  8. Very nice “doodle” (I wouldn’t call so pretty a picture just a doodle XD).

    And thank you for making me aware of that artist that did the commission for you… I’m archiving their website for future purposes. ;D
