Happy Holidays

For Christmas this year, we wanted to give something back to those of you who were not yet let in to this community, as many of you still watch and support our artists. There was discussion over whether we should have an open round, or what we should do. In the end, synchra came up with the idea of being "Art Santas" and simply giving the gift of art to all. Many people jumped on the idea, and soon 39 artists from our community adpoted the first 45 people to not be accepted into the exchange. We know it's not much, but we hope it can make up for a little of the disappointment. Our artist have really enjoyed your character designs and getting the chance to draw them, and we hope that many of you will try again with us in the future.

Merry Christmas, from us at anthrosketchxch to you.

leap of faith333-
Adopted by Xianjaguar


"Well, what can I say?

I've known "leap of faith333" as "Knight Owl" on DA for years (though lately, her journals go by "Nyki")

I've also been in her debt for just as long, ever since she gifted me with a wonderful pic of my jaguar characterHYPERLINK "http://knight-owl.deviantart.com/art/One-Day-I-ll-Fly-Away-XianJag-19238462", and I've been wanting to do a re-gift for quite some time, but never found the time. So when I saw her on the Secret Santa list, I was like "ZOMG, YES."

So, "leap of faith333/Knight Owl/Nyki", this one's for you, from me. =D"

Wow, is gingerfish's picture that I did really REALLY dark on your monitor? My monitor that I finished it on was brighter, I guess, but it DIED so I have this other crappy monitor and I was wondering why it looks so dark and I can't see anything. ;___;
Maybe it's just my monitor, but if it's really that dark, I'd like to lighten it a bit in photoshop. D:

Merry Christmas, everyone! (:

I literally started to cry when I saw this post. <3 I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas present...my Sternen, drawn by EbonyTigress! Oh wow...I just have no idea what to say.

This was such a great idea. I know so many of these artists, both givers and receivers, and I continue to be amazed by the generosity and the way this community can pull itself together to do something great. I really have no idea what to say. Just thank you all, so, so much. You've made a cruddy Christmas awesome! Thanks to you too, especially, Ebony, for adopting me, and to all those who participated and adopted someone, you freakin' rock so hard.

Ohmy. :o

I admit I somewhat suspected this, but it still came as such a surprise!! Thank you so much, Maki. <333 She looks -gorgeous- in your style! And I remember you saying that you had heaps of things to do and were kinda piled over, so thank you doubly for this wonderful Christmas present (even though my timezone has shoved me over onto Boxing Day already, darnit). :)

You guys are all awesome for organizing/taking part in this, and I'm sure everyone (including me!) is really grateful for this. ^^

Merry Christmas to all of you, especially Maki! <3

Hey! I'm very glad you like it! =) I'd seen renditions of your character somewhere (Are you on jaxpad, maybe?) and liked the imagery of a badger with a djimbe. Especially since my boyfriend's got one... so I got to use it as reference. XD

http://nevar.artspots.com/image/13763 This is something I did from photo reference as practice before doing your sketch, so it kinda goes with it. =)

Very glad you like!

That would be the work of faliamirror. I believe she's taking commissions at this time. You may have to inquire within her LiveJournal, though, to make sure.
