UPD July 2016: Please, support Sparkler Monthly Magazine: Year 4 Kickstarter! Final days!

This is Mandy from Off*beat. She is making snowmen. Snowman Tory has carrot hair and pieces of carrot leaves for eyes. Snowman Colin has bilberry (or blueberry) hair and eyes. The snowmen are on board of a (snow) ship. Because my head canon is that Mandy is a shipper on deck 
(sort of)^_^
Also Happy Chinese New Year 2014! Mandy has a tiny blue horse in her hair (it’s supposed to be a barrette) for the occasion =^_^=
Drawn for the 1st Neila`s (:iconneilak20:) (Super Mega Awesome Art) Monthly Prompt Challenge in Sparkler Monthly`s forums:  sparklermonthly.com/forums/top… The prompt theme is "Winter Wonder"

P.S. I do know that Mandy`s eyes are not blue. 
But they look like that in this picture. 
Let's pretend it's a trick of the light, please? With so much snow around...

Cute! You've done an excellent job with the perspective in this piece, which can be difficult when you have so many elements. I love all the little details you've put in. The design on her scarf is adorable, and the colored outlines on the ship's "sail" are a really nice touch. I don't think they'd work as well if they were black, so good call on that one. You've also done a pretty good job of uniting the color scheme throughout the picture. The only thing I'd wonder about is where she got blueberries in the dead of winter. :P But its a lovely picture, so good job!

Thank you for your thoughtful comment! =^__^=

"The only thing I'd wonder about is where she got blueberries in the dead of winter." - Oh! I haven't thought about it. Now I wonder...

I should probably make it clear that neither the design on her scarf nor the design on the handkerchief/the ship`s "sail" were actually designed by me, just like the characters they are from Jen Lee Quick`s OEL manga Off*beat. (although I did draw them in this picture)

Oh, alright. You've rendered them beautifully, in any case.
