Christmas Family Photo: Final Result!

After another six and a half hours of uninterrupted work on this goddamn picture, I have a headache and my neck hurts and my hand is dying - but the masterpiece is finally finished!
It surprises me yet again what an awfully slow drawer I am. It would probably be healthier and save a lot of time if I gave up drawing. But it's not something I can give up that easily. It's not as bad as my writing addiction, but similar. If I could never draw again, I'd feel crippled. If I could never write again, I'd feel dead.

BUT to present this picture on a lighter note without asking my voice of reason if it was really worth all that time and effort, let's start by saying that I'm actually quite happy with the result. It's certainly not one of those "OMG-I-didn't-know-I-was-THAT-GOOD!"-pictures, but it looks almost exactly like it did in my imagination, so I call it a win. I really like how Ryo's pullover turned out, too. I've never drawn such a pullover before and I thought it would be complicated and that I would totally fail, but it was actually very simple (and fun, too) and in the end I was positively surprised about the result.

It was also fun to draw these four totally different facial expressions xD I love creating FAKE fanart. The fandom makes it so easy to get ideas for hilarious scenes. And hilarious scenes are always the most fun to draw, in my opinion. Followed by kissing scenes.

And since fun is all that really counts, I think drawing is actually worth the ridiculous amount of time and work it takes. Looks like I reached a conclusion. *nods to herself* Especially if I can make other people smile, too! :)

(Oh, of course I already uploaded it to my FAKE fanpage and on Deviantart.)

Now please excuse me while I drop dead of exhaustion.

[Merry Christmas! (You better worship it, or else...)]Christmas family photo - Finished

I absolutely love it! I think the colours look perfect now and I like the way you've kept everything in the same colour scheme. Bikky is cruel, poor Dee, cursing him! Ryo's cabled sweater really has turned out great, I must knit myself one like that! =D

Thank you! :) I agree, the colours look much better than before.

I wonder how many photos they have to take before Bikky runs out of ideas to torture Dee! (or until Carol and Ryo lose their patience xD)

I love cabled sweaters, especially when they're made of wool. I'm actually wearing one right now! :D I wish I had the skill and patience for knitting, crocheting or sewing, but needlework is just not my thing. When I was younger, I used to crochet a few things for my barbies, but that's about it. xD

Well, I don't have the patience to try to draw! I knit well, I can do the basics when it comes to crochet, and I can cross stitch, but I hate other kinds of sewing. We all have our talents and things we enjoy!

I expect Ryo got very stern, when he stopped laughing!

Aww, bless! That's exactly how I'd imagine one of their family photos, too! Good work - it's nice when all that hard work pays off isn't it? :)

Definitely! ^_^
I'm glad you like it! :D
