MERRY CHRISTMAS LOVELIES!
Thank you to every single one of you for being awesome to me in some way (even when I am at my least awesome). Thank you for inspiring me to make artwork. Thank you for having imaginative and amazing characters and ideas. Thank you for just being YOU.
I wish you all happy holidays! I apologize if I got some of your character's details wrong or anything. And note: I don't have enough time in the world to draw a decent gift for ALL the great people I've interacted with here on deviantART, but I wish I did.
OH GOD. SURPRISESSSSSSSS. I think I actually just died here, Kelly. Jelly of your skills. My personal favourites... Are totally Narugi, Tom, Hyde and of course my lovely Zarxy <3333 You got him so perfect. It's.. siofhdsgdsh So fluffy looking and his braaaaids. HIS BRAIIIIIDS. *fondles* Oh god though. WHY IS HE NEXT TO DAT SPIDER. It's creeping me out bro. Squishy dat Charlotte, Zarx >:C
But oh god. This is like... The best surprise ever. A sexy surprise <3333 THANK YOU SO MUCH I totally don't deserve this as I've been real lazy with commenting like... This whole year ;~;
They were really fun to do, so they became more like little challenges than what could have easily turned into, "OMG 24 PORTRAITS WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME." The variation kept it interesting and enjoyable.
The colors! My goodness I love your skin tones! They're thick, creamy and varied! I compared this to last years and there's some serious improvement with proportions, color theory, fluidity of style, and character variation! (and omg..Tom...you made me drool, lmao!)
Was it really 2008? My goodness time means nothing to me, lol. The greyscaling is gorgeous! Kasirga's also one of my ultimate favorites in both the non-colored and colored version! She's just so vicious and you nailed her!
I had to do some creepin' on your Facebook group, and could NOT remember if that was his hair color in the book. XD. So I'm sorry, but if anything you can pretend it's not Sam and that it's JUST Chord.
Thanks, and you're totally welcome! Happy holidays!
oh my god kelly you are simply amazing. These are all so wonderful, and I'm still crazy jealous of your shading skills I love all the different noses in here too. Immediately saw Celsius in here, what with the red/orange hair haha, you gave her an awesome and fitting expression too gaaah thank you so much, I didn't see this coming at all and you really toped off my night
oh that is too awesome. Jason definitely screams out "I'm bad-ass and I know it" all the other ones are so great too. One more day and I will hopefully have my replacement digital tablet pen so I can draw gifts once again too! Thanks so much for including me in this! Merry Christmas!
haksjdhgfakjsdhfjkasdhflkadshfa KP Sheila looks WONDERFUL! I find myself unable to express my gratitude in ways that don't involve obnoxious keyboard mashing. Ahhhh thank you so much! As SOON as I am able to replace my tablet (RIP Graphire ) I'm going to do a belated gift for you.
Happy holidays!! We definitely have to hang out again sometime soon.
Oh my gosh what a stellar Christmas Eve surprise!! They look fantastic all of them Saxy, oh my lord this must have taken you ages! Sylvie looks really amazing here, her facial structure is gorgeous! I think she looks cool with a short pony, and I love her mouth in this portrait. I can't put my finger on why exactly but I just do. Ressi looks really nice here too, good work on the scars. The character Hyde is really nicely drawn too, gah you did such a great job on this.
THANK YOU, SAXY. You're amazing and my day just got awesome fast.
I thought I knew Sylvie like the back of my hand, but I realized that you'd made some changes and such. I forgot about how LONG her hair is. And I may need to fix her eyeball a bit; she looks a little cross eyed! XD
Hyde's just Hyde as in Jekyll's alter ego. I know ~spookygoss is a HUGE fan. I'm never sure if I fit how she views the character, so I'm glad you likey! At least I tried.
haha this comment! Thank you! I was at FIRST stumped on who to draw since you have fewer visual references in your gallery than most of these characters do, but then it hit me like a brick to the face. I hope I did him some justice.
HOLY CRAP! FIRST OF ALL, LOOK AT THIS COMPARED TO THIS!!! Wow goodness...
This all look absolutely STUNNING!
First of all thank you so much for including Davien in this m'love! You got the chocolately tone of his skin just perfect and I love the shape of his face and the smile on his lips! You also made his eyes look really deep and wonderful! *swoon*! very lovely indeed! Thank you! <333
So many of the other characters really caught my eye here too! Of course I recognised Zarx straight away and I love the soft fuzzy texture to his fur, and the uber badass expression on his face and his little teeth hehe!
I was also very amused at the love in Mr Park's eyes towards his very creepy spider :/ Beccat would not approve of such a relationship! Probably a good job you drerw Davien rather than Beccat or she'd be leaping out of the panel! XD
I cannot get over how gorgeous Micki looks up in the top right! That expression and smmothness of the fur and markings is just WONDERFUL .__. wow.
Once again, I can't believe how many of these you've done, and to SUCH a high quality! Wow.. Thank you SO much for including me!
No prob, bob. I love Nyros and all, but I wanted some more diversity in the line-up and had been meaning to draw Davien for a while now! And who knew drawing dreadlocks could be so fun? I think it's funny that I used Lenny Kravitz as a reference though. Haha.
I'm surprised I chose to pick a character with a tarantula. I HATE spiders. But still. It was too funny to pass up! And yes, Micki, she's quite a pretty werewolf. I love her design!
Thank you. You're so welcome! And they might look all shaded and complex, but with adjustment layers, it's really easy to do values with just black and white and a layer mask. But shhh, don't tell.
thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou i wish i had the motivation to do these >.< (hasntdrawnanythinginayearorsowhoops) Breaker looks fantastic, as do the rest of the characters here and thank YOU or letting me (and everyone else) be a part of your art world, sharing everything you've done, and being an inspiration to everyone. haha and also being you. because who else is pretty much me in a different body? NO ONE.
hope you have a wonderful holidaaaayyyyy. come onto uncharted soon I MISS YOU!!!!
