99.57 CAD by pantsu-pirate 99.57 CAD by pantsu-pirate
Canada doesn't use pennies anymore, so I guess it would now be $99.55 in postage. I was so close. One more card is all it would have taken.
(next year I'll aim for $100? or 100 cards? -I think 75 cards is pretty close to my max capacity)

But here it is. The collage of the Christmas/New Year's/Holiday cards I drew in November/December.

You can read about it here: [link]
Or read the dumb stuff I've been writing about drawing them here: [link]
(there's porn of various flavors on MW, so don't wander far without your parent's permission and a locked door's security)

This is quite an undertaking and yet they all turned out original and good. How long did it take to do them all? Not just drawing, but also talking with people, keeping poses original, mailing them, etc. I read it took 6 hours just folding and labelling the envelopes.

I want to say it didn't matter so much because I enjoyed doing all of it; but there were times (many times) that I struggled with meeting the self-imposed deadline and frustration on my own abilities.

At the end, I'm always glad I did it and wish I had done more. So I think I can keep trying until my ambitions become regrets; I hope that never happens.

It's hard to say.. I started taking requests right before Halloween and went at it till the day before my birthday on the 19th.

I did some math on it: medicalwhiskey.com/?p=8434

Which is probably not at all an accurate estimate, but the closest I can come to. Another estimate would be to say I spent about 2 hours a day working on them: roughly 100 hours total with taking down names and requests, actual drawing, writing thank you notes, and folding envelopes.

Wow, that's a lot. Your dedication is admirable. Hopefully it turns out well again this year.

Cool, so middle-sized then. Is that how big you normally draw stuff, or was this just so they'd work with the cards?

Most of my work is digital, so it varies on what I'm drawing for canvas size.

I normally only do traditional sketches at cons or for Christmas Cards. At cons, it's on normal 8.5" x 11" paper.

It's either that or the ethnically ambiguous couple riding a bicycle on the beach. If anything better would fit in it, I promise to change it and put it in a pile of some sort

These are some good sketches! I especially like the gundam pic and the one with the DC characters.
It seems the gundam pic challenged ya outside your comfort zone (it's a good thing, and cool).

Oh, and newdz. :iconsuperblushplz:

I used to draw gundams/robots all the time, so it wasn't too bad. It was a nice break in between drawing so many girls and boobs and.... well, maybe not. But robots are still cool.

What caught me off guard were the nudes. I didn't know ya drew that kind of stuff. I would not have the guts to draw that kind of material.

It's not that I can't; But rather the mere idea that prevents me.

yep, they were drawn on 4"x6" cards... which I think is pretty close to the maximum size mail before I have to start folding things.
