Obtained From

Given to artists of the 2008 Calendar of Loathing


Your Periodical Paintbrush paints a picture of <it> taking X damage. It's not a pretty picture, believe me. KAPOW! ZAP! BOOF!
You paint with all the colors of the wind -- all the colors that do X damage, that is. WHAM! ZAP! BARF!
Your Periodical Paintbrush paints a convincing picture of <it> in pain -- so convincing, in fact, that <it> takes X damage. WHAM! BOINK! WHAM!
You ask your Periodical Paintbrush "could you wanna paint a picture of this monster taking X damage? 'Cause I won't remember." The paintbrush complies. SMACK! ZOT! ZOT!
You use <her> like a canvas, painting X damage worth of pure artistic pain. KERBLAM! BIFF! BARF!


  • Given by Mr Skullhead to 12 artists (snarles2, Colonel_Hogs, SirJeffreyOfVistledorf, Master Bates, Lierne, Skojar, Southwest, evilmetaldork, Xanthia, Neurion, Brightmeadow, Fallimar)
  • X is equal to 5 × Y, where Y is the current Grimace darkness.


  • As this item was awarded for winning a calendar illustration contest, it isn't surprising that the enchantment would be based on moon cycles.
  • The weapon-specific hit message stating "could you wanna paint a picture..." is a reference to the song "Take a Picture" by Filter.
  • "Colors of the wind" is a reference to the song of the same name from Disney's Pocahontas.
