Vote for Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan on Topwebcomics today to see a weird, accidental op-art effect of file corruption on the master file for the Witches' Sabbath wallpaper.

I first became aware of the fact that this file was damaged about a year ago when I was sorting through the master files for the wallpapers on the wallpapers and other downloads page, which is a very popular part of the site that needed revamping. At the time I thought "that looks weird", went on looking for an uncorrupted version, and found none. I did have multiple formats for the published files though. The only real consequence is that I will be unable to make new versions as more and more people go to widescreen, so the wallpaper itself will reach its end-of-life a little earlier than the others.

Upon seeing it again today, I thought "Hey, that actually looks interesting in a freaky way", so I decided to call it art and show it to you as a vote incentive. It may even be possible to convert it into a new psychedelic wallpaper if people are interested...

To vote, click on the link. You will be asked to click a button twice to confirm that you are voting for this comic and that you're not a bot or script that automates voting (you will lose what is left of your already tenuous faith in humanity upon hearing that people have apparently done that in the past). The final page in the process has the vote incentive image. Vote incentive images will only be available until they are replaced, so you will have to vote today to see these sketches; there will be new incentive art up tomorrow.

(Or if you've come to this post via a web search, why not simply visit the comic this post is promoting, Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan?)
