Happy Holidays ^_________^
Anyways since I have been so busy this is my only sure Holiday image, thought I will be attempting a few others for gifts they may not all be holiday themed, so this will be the official Holiday image for the year, and I just want to wish my friends, family, watchers and commenters :hug: as well as the rest of DA a Happy Holidays, and lots of love and luck to come in the following months.

Anyways, I wanted to make sure the holiday image this year was more winter themed then Christmas themed so that it could be enjoyed by all religions a little better, and not be super specific to my believes, yet still maintain a magical Christmas feeling that I get form this time of year. I also wanted to attempt simple cell styled shading but it became more detailed cell attempt shading >.> I also played with bell patterns to match his name and the song ^^ love that old vrs of silver bells ^___^ I used to listen to it a daycare when school was out and I was awaiting the final days till Christmas eve ^^
I wanted to make lots of magical glowing stuff so I used a really simple bg, which has trees inspired by Disney’s Sleeping Beauty “love the trees in that movie”
Finally I wanted an elf with fairy wings “really pretty colorful ones even though the imagers them was mainly blues” so he’s kind of a pretty winter fairy/elf, with his magical little globe “inspired by The labyrinth lol” I didn’t really want to put anything in it, I liked it just kind of shooting off magical winter light or joy and happiness “danm I am cheesey lol. Anyways I am really happy with him :glomp: ‘s him cause he’s so danm cute, I hope you like him too :hug:
And as always your favs comments and cc are much :heart: ‘d

PS to my RLF, Kyla, Jon, Julia, Aurel, Angela, Erica, Jess, Lyne, Geoff, Greg, Daphne were ever you guys are I hope you have a great Christmas/Holiday and I miss you all a bunch!!! :heart: :hug: :heart:
Hope I didn’t forget someone :( I am typing this up fast so bare with me :hug:

PS there will be a print XP

This picture's great! I love it. This character reminds me of Link from the Legends of Zelda series, not sure why though, Probably just all the Twilight Princess getting to my head. XD

The backgroud reminds me of a digital hierarchy. I like it! I like how you used something other than red and green. I love blue and white! I like the level of detail on the wings and the clothing. Is that huge blue shiny orb a bell?

very sweet colors, i think you should have made the arms a bit longer, though.

Brrr, all those shades of blue, white and light purple really brings that cold, wintery feeling to this piece. But his expression makes it all warm again. I love the pose he's standing in - makes him look all the more interesting - and the light coming from that sphere is a great touch.
Great work as always! I hope you have a happy holidays. :hug:
