christmas traditions - 1 of 4 by greyfin christmas traditions - 1 of 4 by greyfin
a cute, but evil christmas story. part 1 of 4. each part will be posted on a sunday before christmas (in regards to the german advent tradition of adding a glowing candle every sunday).
i can't rhyme in english to save my life, so i put a simple translation in brackets behind.

"Advent, Advent, ein Raumschiff brennt und landet Bruch im Eise..." [on the first day of christmas, a spaceship crashed into the ice]

to be continued... here:


thanks to my student :iconchepren: for the inspiration

sorry for shaking up your gender identity! :laughing:
i promise even virtual hugs between males do not hurt in any way.

Oh no, my gender identity is perfectly intact but hugs from females just make me more excited! Especially talented German ones...

Hat aber einen gewissen Charakter davon ;)

Wie lange hat das gute Stück gebraucht?
Reply
:icongreyfin:
greyfin Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
ja, bin zu faul für hyperrealismus. nach 3h detailarbeit am stück krieg ich nen koller und muss erstmal etwas anderes machen.

gesamtzeit ... puhh ... vorskizze 30 min, digitalsierung für das oben 4h vielleicht, insgesamt mit allen darauf basierenden fortsetzungen des bildes ... 10-12h?
