You draw faster for my English, when I’ve fond the words to say you… you’ve posted new illustration and I feel lost!!! Hahahaha…

Well, today I’m going to talk about your Happy Holydays card! Mmmm I’m surprised… if I’m not wrong… there’s mistletoe in your pic… why didn’t you draw them kissing??? Youuu… that you’re the queen of kisses’ pieces! Hahahah…

Once again, you’ve made a wonderful design with their clothes; for example, the lace in her dress is awesome, you’re really meticulous with all you do!

Other thing I like is the way you’ve coloured this, it looks like if you’d used watercolours… yep, if you don’t know yet, I love the use the digital tools like if it were traditional tools… heheheh, I admire the soft degraded of colours that you’ve gained in this picture. Yep. :nod:

And... ohhh... I've forgotten to wish you a happy holydays, too!!!

Lol! Yes, it's true, I'm stupid-fast. ;) Don't worry about it, it's all good. :D

There is mistletoe, yes, but I just didn't feel like doing a kiss... I don't know, maybe I thought it was kind of overdone? I had this idea that the monkey-bird climbed up there and dangled the mistletoe while they were standing there staring at each other romantically, and they only just noticed it. I'm sure she's going to kiss the hell out of that boy about two seconds later. I know I would... :giggle: I'm really glad you like it, though! It was a lot of fun to do. :) I was really enjoying that "watercolor" look too; the secret is to paint with a SOFT round brush in Photoshop, and set the opacity to about half. It gives it that nice translucent look. Painter can give you even more realistic watercolor effects, but I've been avoiding Painter for some time since it ate one of my files. =P

I hope you have a great holiday as well! :hug:
