" 'Tis the Season"

for the holidays of 2008

Definitely the most excruciating background to date. *twitch*
If you were curious to know, this concept, originally, had about 8 OCs in it... opposed to the 5 that already took ages to paint. I would have gone mad for sure.

From left-to-right, going down from the left corner:
Sera, Tai, Alex, Julien, Swift

Alex is not a big fan of having snow dumped on his head and thus being soaked (bird thing) as a result XD; Tai ended up looking a little more evil than intended.. but I think that was when I defined his cat-like features more. Ehe. Sera tends to watch them both when she can.. not that Alex has ever found out.
Man, Julien and Swift are from different worlds - in the sense that Julien is from a strictly realistic setting opposed to Swift- but... if they were real.. it would take them about 5 minutes to become best friends, between their dispositions and occupations. They'd get along like chocolate and marshmallow in a s'more! 8D

The snow I had to settle for, and only got the hang of after dozens of attempts.. man. It's HARD to get pristine snow on an overcast/white day. x_x And even harder to capture snow that has understandably had people mussing it up. </3

All characters are my own.

GAWDDD I love the white tree. It makes my toes curl with envy. It is absolutely BEAUTIMUS.
I really like the way you did the hair in this one. It looks lovely. ;] <3

Awwww ^^; I'm amazed 'cuz.. I don't like the white tree's turnout as much as the brown.
Ah the hair. I'm glad you still like it for all that it shouldn't be so shiny.. *cough* I can never resist ;-;
(Ian's hair last time taught me not to go so crazy with highlight colours. Guh.)

Much love darling.. as always <333333

Until I read the description I didn't even notice the girl in the background. :) She very cool though. I love her design.

I also love Tai. He's so naughty.

Ah, Sera was retouched recently.. and I'm glad she almost was invisible >D She's verryyyy good at stealth, hehe.

Tai's a perfect little brother - in a sense of the term here- when he wants to be. He knows well that Alex hates getting soaked by snow and... does it anyway :D

And the background is simply beautiful! :heart:
