Merry Christmas 2012 by Skailla Merry Christmas 2012 by Skailla
YAY Christmas Decoration!!!!:iconchristmasla:
And finally, here is what the whole thing looks like!
I've had a LOT of fun doing this, but it was really a lot of hard work!:faint:
(oh, that's mah room, in case of wonders :la:)
SOOO let's talk about the pictures!!!

--
:bulletred:1st one on top, on the left: You can see my marvelous awesome, EPIC Wolpy sculpture by the amazing :iconalpinewolf: :love:, ready for Christmas!
I gave him a little scarf and a little bonnet :squee: (oh goodness, I just can't get over the awesomeness of this sculpture! Thank you *Alpinewolf, once again :thanks:)

:bulletgreen:2nd one on top, center: A big view of what it all looks like! :la:
Most of the little decoration objects weren't made by me (naturally), but they were little gifts from very special people over the years. I have kept every single one of them, even from the ones who's ways are far from mine now :)

:bulletred:3rd one on top, right: A teddy bear a very dear teacher once gave me :la: I gave him a bonnet and a scarf too :giggle: and of course, my crib. It's a beautiful Christmas card I once got from my mother, a long time ago =D

:bulletgreen:1st one (small) on the second row, left: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin (and his parrot :la:) sliding down a snowy hill, having lots of fun! (or not)
Parody of Starry Night: [link] by van Gogh.
See the details here! [link]

:bulletred:Under, on the left: Michelangelo Buanarotte arguing with Raphael Sanzio (yes, from the Renascence!). Michelangelo is accusing Raphael from stealing his Panettone :giggle: and well… Leonardo da Vinci is actually the one who's enjoying the little treat! xD
Parody of The Creation of Adam: [link] By Michelangelo.
I replaced the angels with teddy bears :meow: I have problems
And yes, Michelangelo is on a scaffolding and Raphael is on the sofa xD
If you guys want to know more about Michelangelo and his life, please, DO watch the movie "Agony and Ecstasy". You will not regret it! I fell in love with his work after I saw it. So intense!


:bulletgreen:The BIG one, with the Christmas Tree, center: Oh yes. All the main impressionists are gathering together to decorate their Christmas tree. There's no way this could work xD
Renoir is trying to balance the presents while Monet is painting some of the Christmas ornaments :la:
Gauguin, van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec decided to put the star on top of the tree, but Van Gogh and Gauguin started fighting (again :stare:)
Poor Toulouse x3 we only hope they don't fall!
Behind Gauguin, you can see two paintings: Still Life: Vase with twelve sunflowers by Van Gogh and a part of Tahitian Women on the Beach [link] by Gauguin.
Choosing the right ornaments to make this sort of "frame" wasn't easy! I was breaking my head until I had the idea to take an old strip and make this.. thing around the picture! xD then put ornaments of bells and all =D it looks kinda corny, but I suppose that's what Christmas decorations are here for xD


:bulletred:The small one, middle row, right: Picasso and Escher giving each other strange glances, while Salvador Dali photobomb them :giggle:
More details: [link]
Parody of Relativity [link] by M. C. Escher.


:bulletgreen:Under, right: Monet and Renoir having a friendly meeting at Monet's garden xD
Renoir is laughing as he sees the resemblance between his friend Monet and Santa Claus :la: (but really, just look at that: [link]) :giggle:
Parody of Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge: [link] by Monet


:bulletred:Last row, enqueued characters: We have the main characters from this mural: Monet dressed up as our Santa Claus (clearly overly annoyed xD), while Renoir give him thumbs up! :trollface:
right beside him, Van Gogh fiercely defending his cookies from Gauguin's parrot (no one touches Van Gogh's cookies :stare:), and finally, Toulouse-Lautrec standing over a pile of presents to make it up for his heigh =D

:star::holly::star::holly::star::holly::star::holly:

I truly, truly hope you guys have enjoyed this, and that, somehow, this have brought a little bit of extra joy to your day!
I'll say it once more, if you're not familiarized with some artists here, do some research on them. They are all awesome, and believe me, their lives and personalities is just epic to read about!

OH! And If anyone would like to see any of the pictures in detail, PLEASE let me know and I'll publish them here just like I did with "Starry Christmas" and "Christmas in Escher Style!".

ANYWAYS! Way too much blabbing here! I wish you guys a super :holly: MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! :holly:
May all your wishes come true!!! You are all awesome, thank you so much for EVERYTHING!:hug::glomp:

This looks so Christmasy. Which is obviously the point, isn't it? xD
I don't know how you find the time to draw all this amazing Christmas artwork, but they all look amazing. My particular favorites are the "looking good santa" to the mid right and the middle picture of the canines decorating the tree. Each picture is very detailed and well shaded. Honest to god I thought some of these were digitally done before I got a good look at them. xD

I love the Wolpy sculpture all dressed up for christmas. :heart: I'm so glad that even after all this time you still enjoy it so much. Maybe I should make you another sculpture whenever I get the chance. Maybe of Steban or Martin this time. :D

I hope you have a Merry Christmas my friend and get lots of presents!!

No wonder you did this display in your room.
Who wouldn't want to wake up and see your art and prized gifts from people you love dearly?

haha xD
lol actually, the forever alone guy fits pretty well to me in this situation as well, believe me xD

I'm basically the only one who sees this decoration. I do this every year, and only for self amusement :ohnoes:
And the people who gave me some of those little ornaments probably don't even remember me anymore xD. Tho to me, they are forever in my heart.
But the Wolpy sculpture truly is something that keeps me good company! =D (I still can't believe this happened to me! I don't feel like I deserved something so awesome!)

But thank you, my dear, for giving so much value to my work! You have no idea how happy that makes me! :thanks:
You are very kind!

Skailla Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
haha lol now that you mentioned it... It does sound kind of narcissist of me to do that :ohnoes:
but I kind of grew up sticking everything I did all over the walls, even if my mother went crazy because of that xD

But you know what, you should shake this shyness away! Sticking your stuff on walls actually help you being connected with the things you create. It gives that motivational feeling that your characters can be something more :aww:

People will always judge us, no matter what we do. But at least in our art, (and our room :meow:) let us be free!:la:

It's your room, and you make absolutely beautiful drawings. The worst that could happen is causing amazement to people that come in. Believe me.

Break this barrier, my friend. Give your art the value it deserves!:iconlawooplz:
