I almost didn't wind up doing this. I think I've reached the limit of my patience when it comes to drawing with a mouse.

There may be a smaller quantity of characters this time around (not to mention colors) but I've made sure that the quality has not suffered. In fact, this is the one time where I deliberately tried to incorporate a "creepy but cute" style, the name that you guys gave my way of drawing. Considering I started drawing this around Halloween then took a break until now, a mere week before Christmas, I can't think of a more appropriate image to represent this style. So enjoy your late treat and early gift ;)

As an added treat, I've decided to provide some samples that chronicle the creation of this latest entry in my OC All-Stars series:

Brilliant.

The best thing about this is, you drew this with a MOUSE!

Every digital drawing in my gallery up to this point was done with a mouse, but I'm done with that. Soon, I will know the blissful joy of drawing with an interactive pen display :)

Oh trust me, I thought it was that easy too. xD

I got my first tablet about 3 months ago, and it felt really weird trying to draw with it. You actually have to learn how to use it first, haha.

It should really only take about a week to a month to get comfortable with it though. ^^

I know, I've tried to draw with tablets before and absolutely hated it. For someone who has done traditional drawings for 2/3 of his life, I've grown far too accustomed to drawing with my canvas and drawing instrument constantly being in my line of sight. That's why when I first laid my eyes on an interactive pen display a few years back I knew, right then and there, ONE DAY I WOULD MAKE THIS MINE. Oh yes, the glorious day approaches.

If it was 100% done by a mouse, then you deserve all the praise you get as using a mouse is a close to Impossible task when it comes to professional digital art. The preview image goes over the screen (unless it's just me), though the animated snowflakes and the overall results are just great. Keep up the good work.

Just about the only things not drawn with a mouse in my DA gallery are my traditional art pieces. Not too sure what to make of your preview image problem, though. I know the main piece is too big (which is why I recommend viewing it through the "Download File" link) but that's about it.

Actually, I knew she had heterochromia. After all, aren't you the girl who loves heterochromia on her characters? :laughing: I did honestly forget about it, but that's only because I decided to give everyone the same eye color for that added creepiness factor.

Speaking of forgetting things, I probably should have added #firstworldproblems to my little complaint about drawing with a mouse :)

Hm? I didn't see any other comment of yours. At any rate, though, glad you like it. Believe it or not, BI was the one who gave me the idea to go with the "Children of the Corn" stares for everyone :D One of your reference images just made something click within me.

I'll amend my comments, but if you view this through the "Download File" link it should scale to fit your screen. All the HD with no loss in quality ;)

That's because this pic is sort of a return to form for me. For the past year or so I had been omitting the application of some Photoshop layer tricks I do that help to further stylize my work. I don't know why after all this time I thought to try it again but I liked how it turned out, and from the sound of it, so did you :)
