Dead Christmas by YorukoChikokoro Dead Christmas by YorukoChikokoro
Here is my final project for my 2D Design class. I freaking love how it turned out and I"m so sorry I couldn't get a better picture of it. The actual drawing looks so much better but since my iPod camera is stupid and doesn't get much detail it doesn't look that good. There is green in there too but you can't really see it. The green is on the ribbons and parts of the tree. I'm hoping that when I get a real camera (I don't consider my iPod camera to be a real camera) I can take higher quality picture of this cause I hate the quality of this picture. :(

Materials: 7B Graphic Pencil
Black, Red, and Green Acrylic paint

Time: Sometime between 5-10 hours I think (?)

I hope you guys like it :)

it looks very well drawn. even though you said it didnt turn out well due to the camera i think it kinda helped you in a way, it made the drawing seem a bit darker that way. even though the green didnt turn out as bright as you wanted it i still think tht it look great the way it fits into the whole dark theme that you were i think hoping to portray with "dead christmas". over all i think that all the time you put into this peice is well worth it and congradulations of the wonderfully dark finished peice.
What do you think?

This is very good! I love the idea and the concept. And you have a good perspective of light and darkness. The blood slatters make the picture stick out even more. The only problem that I have with it is trying to identify the materials in the picture. For example the thing to the right of the girl. I want to say that's a horse, but I can't say. I'm not saying this is a bad thing. You said the picture was badly taken, so i can't say about that...

Other than that, everything on this picture looks right. You should get an A+ in that class!! I really mean it.

actually i was looking for something on this gallery for a while and your picture really stood out to me. I'm a big fan of blood myself, i also appreciate the fact you did this by hand and are using natural mediums keep up the good work.

This is a really cool concept and (although I can't see it very well) it looks good! Best of luck in the contest~
