@patrick
The darker background is definitely an improvement. The turquoise didn't give enough contrast.

@pickpocket
By the position of the present, it almost looks like Santa is taking it away lol.

@EmperorPalpatine: ur pic is nice XD
but how come there r sun and moon at the same time? :3
and do mean the CHIMNEY flipped? bcoz in ur latest modified pic i just saw that u changed the chimney position, not the WHOLE house lah X3
@MrDayCee: tks a bunch for accepting mah challenge, cant wait to see ur pic about "snow fighting" topic lah XD

@pickpocket: nice idea man, i assume that u did NOT draw the whole Santa n the gal but only their hands on purpose, no?
but for me, Santa is always a fat and generous guy (the fatter the more generous lah X3) so I highly recommend u modify that pic to make the Santa looks fatter lah X3
maybe u can draw his belly bigger? :3

@Patrick2011: nice pics man, but actually it s the 1st time I saw a snowflake with that shape lah XD

@Patrick The centre of the snowflake looks a little bit off, but otherwise it's good.
The castle also looks better.

@Palp I think the first one looks better.

@Pick That looks fairly well, just his body seems a little long?

In retrospect, I could say it's the Star of Bethlehem.

and do mean the CHIMNEY flipped?

Notice the door and window. It's subtle, but it's there.

ah and I m still in luv with ur frozen leaves, but how can u made the leaves so easy to look? I mean it must take u quite some times to draw to leaves so that we can destinctively recognize the leaves, no? X3


Honest answer: I have absolutely no idea. I've never been properly taught to draw, so I usually follow the trial and error method: I play a little bit with the colours and, if I like the result, I carry on. However, sometimes the result is awful and I have to begin from scratch...
So yes, I'm pretty slow when it comes to drawing.
