Down, down to Goblin Town! Time for another stab at the Great Goblin. The first time around, I bungled up the skin colour completely, leaving the Great Goblin a dank, purplish mess.

The backgrounds in this set are made out of thin, (neoprene?) rubberbacked mouse mat material of the same type used for tabletop gaming mats. And it all comes […]Read More New backdrops vs the Derro
