Bah, Humbug by MilesTailsPrower-007 Bah, Humbug by MilesTailsPrower-007
For :iconmrseahorse:. C:

Her character, Vidar. I think I made him a little tacky, but given that I doubt the character cares much about his clothes, that's probably okay. Oh, and I doubt he likes being a victim of my cute art. :'DDDDD

I kind of freehanded the lines for his braid with my pen, which probably wasn't the best idea, but it seems to have turned out alright in the end. I like the bow (although Vidar probably doesn't).

Get some Christmas spirit, little dude!

Vidar belongs to ~MrSeahorse

It's actually just pressure variation! :>

Start at the edge where the darkest point would be (shadows?), pressing hard, and then gradually lighten your pressure as you move toward the other side. For the skin color, I just colored really softly with orange on the parts that I wanted to be darkest, and then repeated the previous technique.

I hope that helps!

Ahahaha, that's so adorable! XD I loove your super-soft smooth shading, and your smooth lines too!!! ;v; if I free-lined a braid it would look a million times worse than that. B|

Your coloring and inking on this are two very big strengths of this drawing. I really like how the holiday outfit came out on this, along with her hair.

It's actually a guy, but I can't blame you for not knowing, since he is kind of pretty. :lmao:

I continue to call them Christmas card inserts, although I really just hand them off with the card. :'D

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoy them! :hug:
