Happy Holidays :: winter o5 by finni Happy Holidays :: winter o5 by finni
Happy Holidays '05 from Finni~

This was done actually the night before the last day of school (and thus rushed >< sorry you guys) for my yearly holiday cards, only my printer ran out of blue ink, I ran out of time, etc etc so cards will be mailed out LATER! : D I still love you all.
Crits will be acknowledged but not applied because I see the flaws but cannot be assed to fix it.

Something different from your normal pinup of a sexy girl in a far-too-skimpy-for-winter outfit.

~7 hours total.
Photoshop Elements, openCanvas3.03e
Print should be available.
EDIT: Have some nice watermarked closeups -> [link]

Eheheheh yeah I've always been a little nervous about telling you I never got one. How ironic you sold your last one. Don't worry about it though. xD

No like I DISTINCTLY remember writing a message on the back of one for you, and I drew you a really (fugly) Zuko on the back too. DDDDDDDDDDDDDD: SOB I'M SO SORRRY T___T I'LL MAKE IT UP TO YOU THIS CHRISTMAS I SWEAR. I think I have a few more lying around too, somewhere in my boxes but I'll try to find one for you T___T;;

The print run had a set of bad ones (with a crop mark showing) and a set of clean ones, and I set aside the clean ones for people I liked more 8D;;;

Yeah, I remember the bad print run (I had one too and still have a ton of extras from last year), and remember you saying you ran out of the clean ones before getting one to me. But YEESH DON'T WORRY SO MUCH ABOUT IT you have other more important things to worry about right now. Leik school D<

Oh, that's nice. She's actually bundled up. The expressions are great and the way the umbrella is getting rid of just a few flakes of snow, but it resumes after a foot or two is very real.

*bangs table* I DEMAND POINTLESS SKIMPYNESS >O

I admit, this is...one of the stiffest drawings I've ever seen in your gallery o.o; Girl looks like she'll topple over any moment :'D Also the position the guy is in...it ends up looking as though the girl is...uhm...talking to the empty space beside him X'D

Other than that, I worship your folds ;_; I haven't done decent folds in a while...(thus the random skimpy outfits ~.~; Bodies seems easier than folds T___T)

<33~~ I got the card today, oof, and didn't read it until you left because you always distract me from whatever I'm doing while talking to you. XDD So yeah, I opened it and squeed [sooo nice, even with the downnnnsized version. ;O; You get awesomer and awesomer by the pic and Ijustwannahugyouandsquishyou. <33]

And the message. ;O; Omgggg I'm gonna have to send you a ton of stuff this time around, but I might not get to it until Friday cuz I still have school. >o<;;; ;; I kept reading your card and mom thought I was weird. As usual. XD

;< Enjoy your time at Taiwan, don't get run over by overenthusiastic bicyclists/motorcyclists/rampaging elephants, and remember that I love you very, very much~~ <3

I'll shut up now.

*gets off the soap box*

[PS: Umbrella + snow = roxxor. Saved me so many times from walking into cars parked on the side of the street in my neighborhood and covered in tons of snow so I couldn't see them. >>;;;; ]

dang ur so good at folds ;o;...i'm so jealous!! and i absolutely admire ur coloring so much >,<.
i really like the bg. it's really nice when it's faded...well i mean you know it's there but it's not a big part of the picture so ppl concentrate on the ppl more. it also gives a nice feel :D.

If only bums on the street were that innocent looking and clean, it would be really touching to do as she does in that pic. Nevertheless, it's the thought that counts ^_^ I really like the unspoken emotions here, and I agree with the stuff about scantily-clad pinups for the holidays. Happy holidays.

LOL It was originally rain but the cliche version of winter is snow (even though where I live, all we ever get for the winter is really cold winds and some nice hard rain; hail and frost if we're lucky!) BUTYEAH. My excuse is that I don't know any better. I never get snow. 8D

BTWWWwww I forgot to send you one of the cards for this. I'll mail it out to you after I come back home from Taiwan mmkkk? :love: :hump:
