Secret Santa - s-u-w-i by WhiteFoxCub Secret Santa - s-u-w-i by WhiteFoxCub
:iconsayhiplz: Hey guys! Remember that secret santa activity I agreed to participate in? Well here's my bit for it. I procrastinated for a while before starting this, I'm glad I could finally put it together and I'm very pleased with the outcome ^ u ^ Merry christmas to :icons-u-w-i: I guess I am your secret santa - surprise! :iconchristmastimeplz:

The adorable creatures you see in this pic are some sort of moth type creature... moth type human? I'm not sure! I couldn't gather enough info to understand the story, but I hope my interpretation of this character and these creatures are correct. Apparently this boy hunts these creatures -- theyaresocutehowcouldhe!? e 0 e I went for a more harmless portrayal of the group x-D They are attracted to his candle as you can see > v <

seeking by s-u-w-i looking for way back by s-u-w-i

A big mistake that is bothering me; I got the boy's hair style wrong! He doesn't have curly hair like I thought from the reference of the first picture. I'm sorry! :iconwhywouldyoudothatplz: 

I hope you do like this :icons-u-w-i: It was a pleasure to work on this piece :heart: Your art style is gorgeous I have to add ; v ;

P.S. I'm looking forward to seeing who my secret santa is! And which character they've chosen to draw > v >!

The texture on this is amazing, you just make it work perfectly with your colors! * o * And is it weird that I find this cute and creepy at the same time? It's an adorable, weird feeling! Cx :heart:

Awww thank you so much :heart: \; 0 ;/ It's the funniest thing! I've had so many people comment on how it's "creepy" when I don't find it creepy at all < - >;

Hehee! The picture itself is not creepy, in fact the little creatures are so adorable! :love: Cx but the way the are all on top of each other staring at the other guy, who looks so scared, is what I find creepy xD It's a wonderful work in all :heart: u :heart:

OMG!! I seriously do not know if I have to feel creeped uppon or just go and snuggle all of them at once!!:la:
They are all so adoreable and yet very mysterious and stuff. I just don't know!! xD
Oh, you really did a magnificent job!!
And with the hair thing, now you know how I felt after you changed Fathoms concept sheet and I just drew his chibi version! xD
For me it was an unbearable mistake and my heart just flushed itself in the toilet back then.
Anyway, I think your style is a compliment on the artists original style, both work in such great harmony. I love it and I know it will be a most wonderful surprise!!:heart::glomp:

But you silly! I never changed his concept, you thought his eyes had blue mascara around them or something when it was just coloured shadow! I did take away the bloodshotness in his eye but it was no big deal really! Will you ever let me live that down? =( I never get upset when concepts change, because it's a natural process towards production! Fathom's look has changed so much as I've improved anyway so it's pretty inevitable =I So no, I don't know how you feel cause it didn't bother me! e N e I loved that chibi drawing you did of him, it tore up my heart to see you reject it!

asldfjlsdjf No no darling!! Do not worry about it anylonger! XDD I just ment that I am so in love with your designs, there is nothing more important to me then doing them justice. Plz, if you think I am mad at that or anything you are wrong. I am totally not, I actually don't much care for the sake of work or anything, it is your right to do whatever you want and I welcome anything you do because it only means that I have to be more careful and show more attention to details. It is very good training, I appreciate that. If I ever "sob" or "cry" over something, it is just silly blabbering. Do not bother, it's my super dramatic personality being... melodramatic I'd say. ^^; Quite the joke for myself I'd say.
I do not reject it, I'd NEVER reject something I made. I might be crumpy at myself for a while (my art is just the poor target), but I still love it!! I still use it as reference whenever I try to draw more chibi Fathom! xD (yes I do that teehee...) Because I am still very fond of how the hair and face turned out!:la:
However, I learned since then, that I have to pay more attention and be careful with my general way of looking on other people's art, most of all when I am not sure about the intentions, shading or idea of the artist. (mostly happens with new art that evolved, as you said)
So please, don't consider me being in a bad mood whenever I talk about it. It's actually the different, honestly. I am glad to remember things I did right or wrong, otherwise I would have a problem evolving myself.
That's what I ment about feeling alike. Seeing things, knowing things and the overall result of our studies on other peoples art or else, actually is the thing I was talking about. You thought the hair was curly and I thought he had blue bloodshots beneath his eyes. The happy result: Nope, wasn't the thing, be more careful next time. (or live with the fact, that nobody draws another artists character as good, as that artist himself)

No I am sorry, but I haz to go back to my wallpaper now. Your wonderful gift is all over it and I haz to worship it!!:la::love: (also, I am totally gonna print it so I can rub it all over my body xDD)

Okay I'm relieved! Thanks for explaining that to me, I understand what you mean. Sorry for that, I didn't wanna come across as upset or angry or something! I just wanted to be honest or else it would bother me. I'm glad you took it well, after I sent the reply I then remembered your comment on the Fathom x Elda gift; saying how I'd picked up your christmas - I was worried I ruined that ; - ; It is a nice thing to know I could make a difference to your day! Thanks Ally (can I call you ally? Short for your name > 3 >; ) This thing was worrying me all during christmas day > o<

Lol aww you funny goose X-D :heart: :glomp:

I am sorry for being... complicated! xD
Oh yes! You saved my christmas and my faith in humanity!! Thanks a lot for that!:iconsweethugplz:

Also, yes I am a goose and you are a kiwi!! (you win, because kiwis are so damn adoreable) A goose just talks to much and they look like the ugly version of a swan. Kiwi's are fluffy, unique and they are handed to chiefs of a tribe as a present!! Not to mention they taste delicious as fruits!!:heart:
