Deck the Halls by kaleidoscopial Deck the Halls by kaleidoscopial
YES I FINALLY FINISHED THIS :dance:

TOOK SO LONG.

Kay. So, I don't even know. Like, I was originally playing with perspectives and a new style of paws, and then I wanted to draw snow, and blah blah blah, it became this.

YES I KNOW WOLVES DON'T HAVE THUMBS AND THEREFORE CANNOT HANG CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. DOES THIS LOOK LIKE A PERSON WHO CARES.

Maybe they just found a magic tree that's already been lighted up. Maybe. I mean, come on, they're wearing scarves.

Speaking of which, I love scarves. And it's a heck of a lot of fun to draw them wearing them. So for the duration of winter, Topaz and Puzzle will be equipped with THESE SCARVES, SO CUTE, AH.

Hmm...what else did I want to say...oh, so, I started this at the beginning of the week, but with finals coming up, I didn't have a lot of time to work on it. With that being said, I'll be pretty inactive for the next two weeks (as far as art goes; I'll try to post literature if I come up with anything good!) so that I can do well on these tests. I'm super nervous about a few of my classes and will be studying like mad to make sure I can get my grades up where they're lacking.

And maybe some of you have seen me sneaking around, adding your characters' references to my "Refs for Drawing" folder....hehehe....I don't know why that would be, psht, what are you talking about.

I'm not planning anything.

Anyways, back to the picture. I tried a different style of shading (I know you guys know I've been experimenting with that a lot in recent) and I'm pretty pleased with it. It of course could have been better, but I'm getting there. I figured since it was snowy, they needed soft shading, not hard shading like in some of my previous pics.

Last but not least, if you'd like to commission me (please?) you can find all information regarding that here: [link] . They're open all December long! :)

About 7 hours, Photoshop CS5, Wacom bamboo tablet

I think it looks really adorable! You draw scarves really well. ;w; For some reason I have troubles with any type of fabric.

I agree with Snowfirewolf, though. Puzzle's left paw is kinda confusing me. It looks like his body should be in a different angle with the way his paw is. o3o Unless I'm missing something, xD
