Well, for this year, I got Auro-Cyanide like last year This year I had gajillions of time despite the pile of homework waiting for me so a few days after I knew, I dedicated an entire day drawing. It was fun to do :)


Especially that I had improved, and I had SAI, it was a lot easier and faster doing it. :) It was supposed to come with a speedpaint video I like making those little charms *o*, but all my hard work bearing with a blinking cursor was wasted when it got destroyed ._.

And originally I was supposed to draw Natsume and Yukinari hating each other stupidly but I trashed the idea because I can't capture Yukinari's adorableness And because I did the sketch in school and the sketches totally didn't look like Natsume and Yukinari at all with those hate signs covering their faces
And I did a random sample of the different variations I did. The picture had a lot of overlays and multiply layers and I hit a hundred layers. XD
(The Japanese text means "I'm imperfect, and imperfect I'll stay." I just though it fits :D I got the phrase from Megurine Luka's "No Logic". XD)

Anyway, I hope you like it :'D

Oh wow, thank you! o3o I love it! Haha, what's the chances of you getting me twice in a row XD You did a really good job of it! He looks so cute ///><///

I'll post mine too, since I received my gift :D

My one was for HigurashiKira (funny you should mention posting ;)) This was right up my alley cause I love drawing darker things and I had fun doing the lighting~
The second one was what I was helping JAM out with and her giftee was Omnificent! This was more difficult for me cause I'm... not a very funny person -.-' But I couldn't resist drawing this scene from the WiP and I tried to go for a more comic book style.

I hope you both like them and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone ^o^ ho ho ho~

I hope you enjoy it.

Whoa guys, I almost feel embarrassed to post mine :'D

This year my recipient was Camille. Merry Christmas, I hope you like it~ :D
My ramblings, feel free to ignore xD
I had a lot of fun drawing this, but at the same time it was so frustrating trying to get everything right xD DAT HAIR FFF-
I also tried a lot of new things in this in an effort not to butcher Auro's fantastic art. I learnt a lot from this, so it was really fun xDDD

Hope you like it ^___^

When drawing something, anything, USE REFERENCES!! Use your Google-fu!
Don't trust your memory, and don't blindly trust what others teach you either.
Research, observation, analysis, experimentation and practice are the key! (:

I made you a song. I went for the, "or it could be a pretty song that gives off an innocent feel, like pure white snow on a refreshing, bright winter evening. More like R&B, with a touch of childhood nostalgia...." one. Not sure about the R&B part, but it made it a little urban/modern. Okay, so more rock than R&B. It's also designed to loop. I've never composed music before ... but because I got guitars for my birthday in October, I really wanted to try this out! I didn't do most of the song, just the guitars, including bass. The pads, drums ... not me! ;_; They're free-use loops for non-commercial only, so please don't use this song in a commercial game. That is, if you even use it at all.
Download "Outer Mega" - 2:26 - MP3 - 1.7mb

Bonus songs:
Download "Duck Down" - 1:04 - MP3 - 0.7mb (Playful, energetic, urban)
Download "Oriental" - 1:25 - MP3 - 1.0mb (Hip hop, Asian, sexy)
Same disclaimer for these as above, non-commercial only, and these songs are entirely free-use loops only. Didn't get any of my guitar in them!

I wanted to write you the short story, too, but my chosen premise ended up being too personal for me to write without emotionally crashing. So you can use this as a "get one Aleema free" card for any project you want.

@ Aleema
Omigod omigod I never thought it was possible to hyperventilate and cry tears of joy at the same time till now!! :cry: Thank you so much!!! That's exactly what I had in mind, I'll definitely use that song in my game! I'm sure I'll manage to fit the other two in there somewhere as well :lol:

What a coincidence, huh? This is my first time producing a decent digital work, so I hope you enjoy~ ^o^ Happy holidays to everyone!

@Snow Blossom: Eeee! :D You got me, too!? Haha! Funny it's a first for both of us, too!
I LOVE IT! Thank you!! Gosh, they're so cute ... Emmitt's victory face is adorable. I love seeing them all bundled up, too~ I put it on my website, I hope that's okay. :)

(I'm glad you liked the song! I was so worried! You don't have to force the other 2 in anywhere, haha. I'm happy that you liked it to begin with.)

@MiSi: I played your game! GRAPHIC! :shock: Really awesome gift, though! Really good CGs, custom interface, and suiting music, too!

@ Deji

Freaking-A that's so amazing :DD
I'm actually speechless right now... thanks! I think I'm just going to stare at it in awe for the next few days haha

I was LVUER's Secret Santa... Merry Christmas ^^

If there was one thing I learned from doing this, it's that I don't mix well with the loli style at all XD
This is the first and probably last time I'll be drawing something like this... hopefully it's not too horrible.

Thank you so much, HigurashiiKira! I really like it. Though, now I'm a bit curious about the occult stuff in the background.

My gift is going to be slightly delayed due to me working at a toy store during the holidays and, as a result, being stuck with no free time whatsoever. I'll do what I can to make up for the delay by tossing a second little gift in, though! Many apologies to my giftee.

This year is my first year to be a secret Santa, and I'm Deji secret Santa... though looking at her drawing for jaysilver, I couldn't help but having a low self-esteem. I hope you like it, Deji.
