Christmas is coming soon so have some holiday themed art!

To me, Christmas is now all about family. I don't really care about the presents. I just want to go and visit my parents and spend a nice and happy Christmas with them. (and eat! I admit, I am sucker for good food).

To me, family is important, even those who have passed away. It's a custom in our family to visit a graveyard and light a candle to pay our respects to our past away friends and family members on Christmas.

I wish you all a lovely holiday. I hope you can spend it with your loved ones.

My family doesn't do this. Not that I know. I'm adopted. I mean. I draw my parents as Eeveelutions. In fact. My Persona's original disgn was going to be a fluffy Flareon until Okaa-sama and Otou-sama told me of my adopted heratige. Makes sense. I'm blond.Dad is a black head and mom a red head. I have brown eyes and they have Hazle. My brother has brown hair and green eyes though my Okaa-sama's and Otou-sama's family are known to have green, hazle, or blue eyes. Green being most common in our family despite it being such a rare color.

 

I am ranting. Later!

Ata out, Itana!

I've always wondered this:
If both matthew and marlowe have British accents, and sibeilus is their nephew/son, then does Sibelius have one too?

He talks like a stereotypical little British boy! (Pip! Pip! 'Ello governor!)

HAHAH! Okay, jokes aside. I think Internet has ruined his beautiful accent but I'd suppose he still pronounces things like British people... Now that I think about it... Luke from Professor Layton (maybe EU version) could make such a cute voice for Sibelius. XD

Cute, beautiful, but still a bit sad picture.
It's nice to see Sibelius and Marlowe together in a picture at last.
I couldn't agree more with you, while presents and food are sure upsides of the holidays, the real reason for Christmas is the family. Nice to know there are still some who aren't completely materialistic about it.

Ah-ha! owo So you settled on an Arceus-type pendant as well. I had wondered if you would. (The pendant seems to be spreading a bit. >w< )

I love how fluffy everyone looks and Sibelius is so tiny! :heart:

Hmm.. I'm noticing a new look for Matt. An arceus wheel instead of a crucifix, huh? Interesting idea.

Also, I like this painting. I don't see you paint a lot, but I think I like it when you do.

So much feels right now. I have plenty of past family in my thoughts these days...

And I see you changed Matthew's rosary! I wondered why there was christianity in the pokemon universe and how he got into it.XD

TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! That is because Matthew was suppose to be originally stereotypical fundamentalist catholic but... In the end I didn't go with it. Now I wanted to update it into something that fits better in PKMN universe.

I agree with you, holiday times aren't about anything other than enjoying yourself with friends and family. Hope you have a happy holidays!

Note on the drawing: Is Matthew's cross now a cross that represents Arceus? Because if it is, that's so cool.
