I know it's a little early for Christmas art, but I want to make more of these, so I wanted to make sure I started early. X3; Besides last year I didn't make a Christmas image at all. I'm not sure I'll be able to do them all, but I hope so. 
I started with Telena because she was the easiest and it was a nice one to test the animated snow on. :) It's a little faster than I wanted but if I made it slower it would jerk when the animation would loop back to the beginning and now it doesn't.

Oh I got so happy when I saw this cute animation, because you told me you maybe didnt had the insperation at that moment we talked last time. So it looks like you got a little spark going on now again. I hope it stays and you will finish the other characters you planed on doing in the same style. ;) :heart:

Im very happy to see Telena again she is adorable and the pose next to the snowman really brings the winter wibe. I have been watching the animation so long time and i think it looks nice. It might be as you say a little fast. But it looks good still, I can only tell how hard it is with the speed and make everything work out. I mean you seen my stuff. :giggle: 

I really enjoy this, it bring some christmas wibe, your so talanted :3

yeah it was weird.. yesterday I felt all... inspired I guess.. XD; and I just went for it. Just out of nowhere. I really was feeling so crappy I had no desire to draw, but it just suddenly shifted. 
I hope so too. It takes a while since I have 6 more of them to do. And some will be more complicated that Telena's. But I know how to do the snow animation now, which took up a lot of time, so that should help with the others. :)

Thank you. :)
It's just that I used this technique from a tutorial where you basically create a snow pattern and in the animation all you really do is drag it down. Now the more you drag down the faster it gets. But since it's a pattern it'll jerk back to the original position after the animation loops if you don't drag it down much. So I had to drag it down until I reached the starting point again, that way it doesn't jerk, but it does make the animation faster.. I'm sure there are better ways.. XD; But this works.

I like Christmas vibes, so I'm happy to spread some. :)

Hehe if the insperation hits you its better time to go for it. ;) 

Im glad it shifted, sometimes its only matter of time that can
make diffrences in life sometimes. :hug: 

I wish you good luck and hope the motivation is sticking to you.
Its good you know how to make the animation now should be
less work for you hopefully. =) 

I did the same thing but I failed either way with my funny door. XD
But thats fine I havent made animaiton in a very long time so I cant
expect something amazing like that stright away. :giggle: ;) But
your technique is very good I think :3 

As long as it works right ? ;) 

You really did :hug:

Yeah now I can do the animation in a minute and the first time it took me hours because I didn't know how and tried out several things. XD; 
Oh well, at least you tried. :) And like you said it had been a while, you're a little rusty. X3

hehe how did you figure it out then? you used a tutorial? X3

well I found this awesome tutorial and I got half way through and then it just didn't do what it was supposed to.. ^^; So I found another one and used that one but with some of the knowledge from the earlier tutorial. This is the one I used in the end www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqHCrG… but you do need photoshop CS6 at least, the older ones don't have this kind of animation option.

oh that sucks you need a CS6 photoshop XD I have a very old photoshop.
>_> Im even suprise it still works to be honest because I cant afford a 
good photoshop so I get whats around. :giggle:

Yeah the animation possibilities are just more refined in 6. ^^;
Yeah you are lucky it still works. :) I'm always worried about my version not working anymore at some point either, that would freak me out so much. XD

Wow, this is super cute! I really love Telena in this adorable idea! I wish it were a real snow globe so I could have it on my desk! 
Yeah I don't think I did one myself either last year... x3;; I need to do that and work on my anniversary piece too. So much to do, so little time.
