Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
So this is the winner among the three Christmas pics going up tonight, right? Adam and I think so at least, happy with all of them but this one's our favorite of the bunch.
Yeah, this idea was kind of conceived in the midst of drawing it. Originally it was pitched as something else just related, but Adam suggested spinning it in this direction mostly on the basis that he likes drawing Glenn. Will hold off on going into detail since we might use the other idea next year or something.
Like I said in the comments on WaR, both of them have kind of an accidental theme of not being set in Georgia. Yeah, based on the timeline of the photos we saw, this has to be in New York rather than Atlanta. Speaking of New York, though this doesn't really relate to the pic, I'm trying to get a little better at making Misty's accent more prominent in the current chapter, so keep a watch out for that.
Will say of the three this one took the most work on my end, and probably on Adam's too. On my end, I put a lot of clean-up into it plus I added a lot of extra detail to that tree in the background. Like we've said before, trying to get better with background details.
Be sure to also check out the Christmas pics being posted on WaR and Blues!
Yeah, very happy with this one, mostly because of the lighting and all the details Martin threw onto that tree. ^^ Pajamas were a lot of fun too. If anything kinda sorry I didn't have Glenn awake. Realized as I finished drawing him that he'd be cuter trying to take part in the sting.
Very ironic this comes out the best as I was really reluctant to try something similar in Blues; I really dislike Christmas narratives involving Santa becoming part of the heroes' business. Though after seeing how this came out, legitimately kinda curious to see the original idea in practice. Like Martin said, good chance we'll do that next year. Sorta wanna do a Blues one next year that utilizes this kind of cozy lighting too.
This didn't really take all that much work, though. I guess the pajamas were the most demanding part. ^^
Aww little Misty looks so cute spying on Santa with her powers great page guys.
Glad you like it, we're very fond of this one too. Hope you had a good Christmas.
