God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen II by Kyrahlynn God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen II by Kyrahlynn
My once-again scanner-mangled yearly Christmas greeting, belated this year! Unfortunately, my scanner really did a number on it- my new one seems to scan everything but colored pencils nicely. This was also a bit big for the scanner, so it's cut off a little as well. Oh well :)

This is so incredibly full of flaws, but for once I don't care because I think it still gets across the feeling I was going for. Plus I've being drawing Toby so much lately that I think I'm entitled to one messed-up looking Tobe. Right?

Anywho, I hope everyone had a great Christmas, and is having a wonderful holiday season :D

As always, musical inspiration was Mannheim Steamroller's rock-n-roll "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen."

Naww this is so beautiful! I love the colours, it looks like it should be printed onto one of those collectable plates or something XD

Fortunately for you, your scanner works with your computer, thus removing the hastle of running over to a friend's house to use their scanner everytime you finished something. :XD:

...


ANYWAYS.

Very nice picture indeed! Much better than the last one, if I do say so myself. The expressions are more refined and the mood is cleanly presented. Nicely done.

well, once upon a time (eh, up until two years ago) I had to dash down to my grandparents' house any time I wanted to use the web. So trust me, I understand ;)

Thank you so much- I always love to hear that I've improved :D

You really have improved a lot! I like the feeling that you overall achieved - I like the expressions as well. Lovely work with that textured paper on the trees and clouds, they came out well. Great colors too - I bet it looks amazing in real life, without the scanner... though I don't think it looks that bad, so for those of us who haven't seen the real thing, this is still perfect ^^

Congrats on "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." :)

Thank you so much! :D Yeah, the scanner really kinda did a number on it- there's a bunch of snowflakes that didn't show up, and the colors are a lot richer and sharper in the original :/ oh well- it's better than my old scanner, at least :XD:

It looks pretty good, I bet it is even better if all those details didn't show up - it really has very showy colors on here ^^

Fantastic, miss. And I have to say, I've never quite seen Toby as...cute as this before. Must be the ears. Nice to see he's taking in one of life's simple pleasures: catching snowflakes. ^^ Perfect little Christmas picture.

aw, thanks, Geo! Originally, his ears were going to be up, as I've been drawing them down so much lately (too many fedoras :XD:), but it just didn't look quite right. So down they went, and I'm glad they did- something about it just seemed right for the picture :)

Awesome as usual. Like Toby's expression. And cardboard texture makes it look so... um... warm maybe?...

|i can't allow myself get pencils color :(|
