I hope everyone had a great Christmas

This holiday gift is for my amazing talented friend, Niki from Tumblr or Deviantart. If you haven’t heard of her, then you’re a complete lunatic.
She’s extremely sweet and funny, and one look at her art will make you smile instantly.
Hope you like it, hun~

Shit, her name is with two “k”s. I am a retard.

I made this awhile ago and forgot to upload it.

These cards are for two of my closest friends that I have known since elementary, Alisa and Madeline. I miss them dearly and I hope to see them soon.

Well actually I’ll see Alisa tomorrow but Maddie needs to visit Cali asap.

I love you, girls~

And yes, they did know me first. And also Maddie is holding a GLaDOS mask she used for her Caroline costume in Halloween.

For my amazing friend Viv~
I should have asked her what Prismacolor markers she uses for her characters because I was just guessing and ended up fucking it up.
Almost done coloring these babies, and then it’s off to the postage office.

For my dear friend Samy~
Sorry about Elixir’s skin color. This basically proves that I need skin color Copic markers. Also added some “silver” snowflakes to make it sparkle.
I can’t wait to mail them.

To all my friends that I’ll be mailing their cards to, this is what yours will look like.
I have just received Prisma markers for Christmas and I’m already using them like a maniac. My original plan was to send them digitally but the idea sounded ridiculous. Inking them traditionally only to have them scanned, colored digitally, printed in bad quality and smaller size, and then sent? It’s much simpler to work straight with markers and mail the real deal.
Hopefully I’ll buy myself a white gel pen so I can create my own highlights.
I colored Edd’s gift first since it looked more festive, also creepy. I wish scanners wouldn’t destroy colors though.
I’ll get right back to work around the 26th or 27th. Merry Christmas, everyone~

Sorry about my previous depressing post. I’m usually not like that in person.

Anyway, back to business. These pictures give you an idea what to expect in your Xmas cards, to those that requested it.

The ones that I am working on first are the ones I am going to mail to my faraway friends. They’re 50% done, so now I have to color them and make it pretty somehow. I have around of 10-12 pictures to mail I believe, so I have to be quick.

They’re all traditionally inked since I move a lot faster than digitally inking. I wanted them to be a surprise but in the end I wanted to show my progress.

Also I have received everyone’s notes and emails so don’t worry. Once I am done with the mailed ones, I’ll move on to electronic ones and others that I’ll be handing in person.

Sorry if I haven’t been updating much as I used to. A lot has happened last week, birthday party, Ricky’s passing, university work, holiday plans, etc.

I hope to make it on time for the holidays. I have so much planned for you guys~
