Christmas '22 by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

My 32nd submission to DYOS XII: [link]

As usual, a combination of procrastination and December pile-on pushed this to the brink. However, I almost made it within the year—but that it was the first time using the old scanner since the laptop was restored and it took an inordinately long time to reinstall the drivers. Combine this with having to re-learn several basic functions after upgrading GIMP to 2.10, and I only got it out 25 minutes after the drop. So it goes.

This season's roundup is a little different than usual: With the thread functionally dead and almost all my old friends radio silent thanks to the Suscord lockout/dA bullshittery driving them off, my attentions have turned to new colleagues picked up from the smouldering ruins of a certain other artsite. Maybe the real Buzzly was the friends we made along the way. HAV - Hatshepsut

Ermagerd Thor, you drew Baker I see! :o That one is, in fact, a wolf guy! Someday he will return, when the ideas apply.

@Danimarion: Aye, I think you'd bailed that year so I was working purely off memory; I don't recall if the Bonk Stick pic was R63 or a separate character, and I may or may not have been channeling your likeness as a fill-in. ||||||:^{3>

@Thorvald: Bonk Stick was iirc a commissioned piece, specifically of a cat boy police officer. xD

@Thorvald: Oh my god, I click it and get bombarded with pop-ups on getting "free prompts" for AI generation...
