Image Magic!

Hm man... wouldn't it be easier to just "mogrify -resize 50% this.pict" instead?

It's okay if you didn't get it. This drawing is a word play on ImageMagick name and logo.

ImageMagick is a set of programs that allow you to do various manipulation on picture file via command line; resize, crop, set brightness/contrast and much more. No magic involved; you must know exactly what you want to do before chanting *ahem* typing the command.

The "spell" mentioned in the drawing halves the size of target image. For the clarification, he was trying to:

mogrify -affine 0.5,0,0,0.5,0,0 -transform this.pict

This marked my first attempt to draw the same character twice. (Remember this guy?) Glowy things and people are still my weakness; took very long time to make them look right. Still, result is a relatively simplistic style and slightly inconsistent character.

Though this was drawn for 16:9 aspect ratio, extra care was taken to make it look reasonably good on 4:3. If you want the 4:3 version, just crop for the middle part of this image.
