December starts, so let's start being hyped about Christmas or whatever else you celebrate. What is this? So I did this kind of Christmas countdown last year (not on the forums though), and I thought "hey why not do it again?", so here we are. I'll try my best to not miss a day and update at a daily basis, if you have any suggestions you can post them here, if you have anything else to say related to this, you can also post that here. This year I'll be going with a monochromatic sketch theme, so one color sketches. Let's make this nice and social. So last year I ran into the problem of running out of ideas, because I am not very creative. As a big fan of making people happy, I'm going to add something interesting. If you want, you can ask me to draw the skin of a good friend, acquaintance, etc. here from the Hive. Tag the person (else they won't even see it) and explain why you'd like this person to be drawn, why you appreciate them, etc., you can even tell me which day (the 16th is taken though! >-<), and you have to give me a link to their current skin. I'll then either draw that person or not, I mean if not then hey at least you were able to tell the person something nice, which is also pretty neat. So if I ever happen to run out of ideas I'll get to suggestions. I hope you can enjoy this No idea why my art things are always related to giving people something, oh well. Have a nice day please! Here's the calendar: Spoiler: December 1st Example of what most of these will look like. Spoiler: December 2nd @NTMNathan, requested by @iElena. Spoiler: December 3rd I felt like drawing some ice skater, so here we are. Spoiler: December 4th Early christmas gift and request by @In10sGamer, I've been occasionally drawing for you for a while already, and I'd appreciate it if you'd also appreciate me as person, instead of just my art, empty words of friendliness would already be enough. :w; Spoiler: December 5th Something much more simplistic and quick today, because I also want some time to play with my friend. ^-^ Spoiler: December 6th I didn't have much time today, so this day isn't that good or creative, sorry! But in the sketching process I got the base for tomorrow done (drawing something and then realizing that it'll take too long, ugh >-<)! Spoiler: December 7th Again, sorry for being a day late! This person is just one of my characters. I originally wanted to draw Cjeich, but I didn't know if the pose would fit her, since I don't personally know her and have never even seen her in-game before. xD Christmas lights are awesome. Spoiler: December 8th I tried a more comic-ish style for this day, as well as monochrome shading (well except the stars and gradient, of course). Guess who that person is, hint, she has light blonde hair and a blue scarf. I drew her today because I appreciate her as a person, even if we aren't friends or talk often. I'm currently out of ideas, so I'll start going through the reuqests, going with Christmas skins > normal skins. Have a nice day! Btw it's @Little_Tigress, the lovely senior mod and nice person. owo Spoiler: December 9th @cjeich, requested by @Shadowphax. Spoiler: December 10th Just a simple little snowman today, waiting one more day for people to get their Christmas skins before I draw them. owo I also wanted to try my luck with the snowglobe hunt. Spoiler: December 11th An artwork that was long overdue for @Breeeze, even if this isn't a redraw, there just isn't any time left atm, and I've already kept you waiting for long enough. >-< I did the curcial mistake of combining the base sketch and sketch together, rip base sketch, it's no more now. Spoiler: December 12th @Asheras, requested by @eepgaming. I would've drawn her at some point anyway, since she's also a good friend of mine. 0w0 I like this piece even if it's kinda quick and simple, I usually don't work with paints or just draw without really having a plan. Spoiler: December 13th Finally I drew something with a fairy. This is just some random character again, continuing with suggestions tomorrow (probably?). Spoiler: December 14th @Shadowphax, requested by @Little_Tigress. I really didn't do the hair any justice, but I don't really know how to fix it either, so we'll just have to go with it (will definitely try to fix it in any future artworks!). I'm going to skip the 15th to take a break, consider it my own nomination. I might do it later. Spoiler: December 16th So this. This should've been one of the best artworks out of all of them, but let's be real here, it isn't. I'm just not feeling up to it right now, and I'm sorry, better stuff wil be back tomorrow (hopefully). Spoiler: December 17th Well today is better than yesterday, so that's a start, but something's still off. Spoiler: December 18th @oscitare, requested by @QueenAshlee. I am happy with this picture, even if it's just a little chibi. :w; Spoiler: December 19th Today is not so christmassy, hum. @ThatOnePrez, requested by @QueenAshlee. I also considered him a good friend of mine before he suddenyl vanished on his social media platforms, I hope he comes back some day... I wouldn't even ask why he left. The original deal we made when I used to "work" for him (definition of "work" in this case: drawing for him for free and also using his sprite/character/skin for other projects, experiements and pieces) was that I'm allowed to draw him to my heart's content as long as I always shwo him the final result. This is a public thread that can be accessed and viewed by whoever, so I'll consider it okay to draw him, since he could view it if he wants to. Spoiler: December 20th Sorry for being one day late, I spent the evening with my family again. >-< @luxlacis, requested by @In10sGamer. The face is a bit simpler than the usual faces on this calendar, but I hope you'll still like it. I really like how the bowtie turned out tbh. Also I'm already pretty certain that I'll draw all of Joksu's ideas in one artwork as the 24th, and maybe draw some of my personal favourite places on the 23rd-22nd. Does that sound like a good plan? Spoiler: December 21st So I'm out of ideas and suggestions for now, so I tried the candy canes thing again (already tried it last year), and it's still so hard. =-= Watch me try it again next year lmao. Spoiler: December 22nd Today I kind of traced a bit, I traced a screenshot of the penguin express station and made some shapes round, added penguins and my good friend @tqhllyma. owo Sorry for not being 100% original today, but drawing three dimensional things is really hard and I wouldn't have been able to finish today. The picture was too tiny for a face... hope you don't mind. :w; Spoiler: December 23rd Tomorrow is already Christmas (yes I know some people celebrate it on the 25th, but here where I live it's all in the evening of the 24th)! Tomorrow is already planned, and I thought it'd be nice to already decorate the tree for tomorrow's artwork. I was out of ideas on who to draw, so I just drew my good friend @FrostyVampy and myself, even if we both aren't really in the Christmas mood for various reasons. Also, should I draw a final artwork for the 25th as well, or just finish on the 24th?
