Oh my Lord, look at this Joyce that Diana Nock drew me. loook at iiiit Anyway, she’s been drawing The Intrepid Girlbot for like five years. It’s a sweet webcomic! There’s a robot and a raccoon! You should go check that out.
I GOT SO MANY ARTS AT SPX! It was glorious. And I received them in almost perfectly evenly intervals, allowing me to cherish each one for a while before receiving another. It was like Christmas every couple hours!
Let me share them with you, left to right, top to bottom:
- Danny and Amazi-Girl. Do not have it written down who this is from! If you are you, please let me know!
- Joyce by Magnolia Porter
- Joyce, Dorothy, and Carol Brown by Veronica Vera
- Walky and Dorothy with Monkey Master and Dexter, by Jen Aside. She gave me the real version of the art posted earlier!
- Most Adorable Joyce in the World by Elle.
Seriously you guys I am so happy.
Here’s the Dumbiverse version of Mike’s parents, the Warners. They’re younger here than when we met them in the Other Universe. And since they’re in a dorm, Mike’s dad can’t smoke a pipe and also his mom probably shouldn’t be in an apron and oven mitts. Otherwise they’re basically the same.
Oh man, Dorothy is super adorbs. Go read Between Failures!
I have been amazingly blessed with Dumbing of Age fanart this week. I really need to get up off my ass and post them in a more timely manner!
Here’s the Joyce statue design I’d settled on. The striped shirt won the poll, but I asked and it wasn’t cost effective to have something like that be handpainted on buttloads of statues. Thankfully, the nearly-equally-popular second choice was something with solid colors. So that decided that. (Likewise, I can’t guarantee the book will actually say “Gender Studies” on it on the final statue. That’d be a pain to hand paint at such a small size.)
She is not intended to be compatible with the Shortpacked! statues. Why? Well, something I kind of dropped the ball on back when I started the old statues was not thinking to make them 6″ scale. It’s a popular scale. Who wouldn’t want their statue to be able to plausibly hang out with Batman or Spider-man or the Ghostbusters? And I was locked in it for the original statues once Amber was made, but since this is a new series and a new continuity, I let myself make Joyce (and possible later DoA characters) this preferred scale.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Patch Together statue process, here’s how it works. Right now, the Joyce statue is starting the voting stage. If it receives enough votes, it will get produced! If it gets produced, then preorders will go up, a statue will get prototyped, I’ll help the Patch Together guys refine the statue until I think it’s perfect, and then after the preorder period is over, everyone’s cards get charged and Patch Together mails you your statue. The number of statues produced depends strongly on how many are preordered. PT tends to make ten or so beyond the number of statues preordered, but the best way to guarantee you get one (or that they’ll be produced to begin with) is to preorder one.
But that’s not exactly pertinent yet. Right now, all you have to do is vote.
