This is what I sent out for my holiday card this year. I've done Christmas cards so much now, that I've found ways to make them pretty fast (relatively) This is one of my favorite so far, though addressing all the cards gets tiresome.
On the blue card was my letter to family and good friends, but I'll share a little with you. I started mentoring a child once a week at a local school, very rewarding. I had a vacation to Hawaii this year. And I became an aunt, for the first time, to the cutest nephew on the planet.
Once again, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
30 pieces of cut paper arranged in a scene of rather uncivil disobedience, on the occasion of my lovely wife's birthday.
For those of you who are musically inclined and wonder why he has a full xylophone jacket rather than the stage standard xylophone vest, it just seemed more historically likely to me that the 1830s Parisian bourgeoisie would find it far less shocking to see a street revolutionary barricade the streets and exhort them to rise up in popular revolution than to see him parade about with his shirtsleeves showing.
...And remember, if you're going to use a system font for a revolutionary propaganda poster, please, make it a Bold Impact.
usually i go crazy with jack-o-lanterns. this year i decided to just go with the traditional look. if it scares even just one little kid, it's so worth all the carving and getting pumpkin crap all over me.
It's a the Doctor Whooves again! The Doctor is made of walnut, for ! I like this versions body shape and for once the raised foreleg came out like I wanted, although I'm still wishy washy on the hair. Anyway, it looks like he'll be one of the last ponies before I move, so here we goes; allons-y! You can find more pics of the good doctor and other ponies here [link] Doctor Whoof (Whooves) and My Little Pony belong to Hasbro. Doctor Who belongs to BBC.
OH MY GOSH the amount of shortcuts I took while working on this......and the yellow foot squigglies, they look awful! WHY WERE THEY SO HARD TO DO!?!? (I also forgot to make her goggles, but she's for my own personal collection, so I don't care that much. :I)
Anywho, have a Rainbow Dash in a wonderbolts' uniform. I took one of the Funko vinyl figures of Rainbow Dash that I bought and gave her a full body repaint using acrylics.
Obsession with SHED.MOV and the pattern I used for my Brave Little Toaster bag lead to the creation of this monstrosity. I used as many hi-res stills that I could find from the short to get as accurate of detail possible. Not to mention the main Derpy fabric is microfleece, which is crazy delicate to work with.
Anyhow, it's a fully functioning toaster cozy. Not sentient or moving or anything.
*EDIT: I gave this to Max at Everfree NW. He was super nice and wore it during the entire convention while drawing sketches. If you're going to Canterlot Gardens or Equestria LA, go meet him! You shan't regret it. *
