First, I just want to say how sincerely sorry I am that your gift is so late, *cherriuki. Deadlines got the better of me :( I was so happy with your secret santa gift last year that I wanted to give you something special in return so it didn't feel right to rush it! I hope it's worth the wait and you can actually tell it's supposed to be Usako xD I thought the typical hair ribbon bunny plus the bunny hood/cloak would be too busy, but I can add it if you'd like!

Secret Santas over the last two years have made me pretty happy since it's the rare chance to almost draw for myself. I've been so busy with this and that I've not really been able to. It gives me a chance to try things that I'm not really confident at and in this case it was a town in general and especially in that perspective. It's still not the way I wanted it in my head, but I may revisit it in the future. ^^; I may also do detail shots because that stupid pattern and the braid on her leggings made me want to cry. And the windows. Oh god all the windows ;_;

Anyways, a very merry belated Christmas to you, *cherriuki and to all of my watchers who have supported me throughout the years :D I'll probably be releasing a bunch of stuff soon! I didn't feel right doing it until I got this done v_v

Thanks so much! That was actually my inspiration - one of those little towns that had the lightbulbs inside all the houses and that fluffy cotton snow beneath them. I always loved arranging them when I was little.
