Well, now that it's officially December, I figured it was high time to make myself an avatar for the Christmas season. :D So here it is.

I was somewhat lazier in making this one, but I'm still fairly happy with how it turned out. ^^ I decided to try some new stuff in terms of perspective, with Jayfrost leaping up to bat at an ornament. It still doesn't look entirely right, but it's better than some of my other attempts at active poses. ^^ I wanted to make Jayfrost's expression joyful/relaxed/innocent/whatever, but I think I might've overdone it a touch. Her eyes look a touch too wide and wild-eyed. Maybe she's been getting into the Christmas catnip or something. XD

To emphasize her movement and the perspective in the image, I blurred the parts of her closest to and farthest from the camera. I think it mostly got across the desired effect, though it looks a touch off. I also tried to emphasize the highlights and shadows, I think it turned out good. :D She's supposed to have her ears pinned back, that's why they look so small.

I gave her a Santa hat and scarf, I was gonna make the scarf striped, but I realized it looked better with snowflakes on it. :D And I decided the green background contrasted well with the red she's wearing, and works in terms of Christmas colors. :D I was lazier with the shading than on past avatars, but oh well, I'm still fairly happy with it. ^^
