Secret Santa: Nahamut by raka-raka Secret Santa: Nahamut by raka-raka
My partecipation to the Secret Santa event hosted by :iconsantasbonnet::
The person I had to draw a gift for was :iconnahamut:, and I chose this character, a forest spirit, because I had a crush on her design, which seemed to change with seasons.
I tried to invent something suiting this period of the year.

Hope you'll like it, ~nahamut! :hug: merry Christmas!

Madò era vergognoso l'accumolo della mia inbox! :XD: Mi sono data a un po' di fav-bomb, spero apprezzerai comunque :love: Cmq su questo volevo commentare, perché trovo la colorazione davvero magistrale, sul serio, lo stile un po' più grafico per lo sfondo ci sta d'incanto e i colori sono davvero amalgamati bene, poi ti è capitato davvero un persnaggio fighissimo da fare *_*

Grazie, mi fa veramente piacere! ^___^
(in più colorare così è relativamente veloce quindi tanto meglio...)

Beautifully done! I find it awesome the way you pick the colours for your pictures! Geez, great. Those tones work very well with each other!
I'm such a colour impaired! :D And the character looks very nice indeed :)

Thank you so much! I am really glad you liked the palette, abck at school color was my weak point so I am glad if I managed to improve a bit.

T/////T I love this so much!!!:heart::heart:

The colors, the winter theme! I love snow so much, you really made the perfect composition for me!:heart: The fact you gave her a winter look made me very happy too! What a wonderful idea. I love to see other renditions of my characters and especially when people takes some artistic liberty for clothing or something ^^ The one you designed looks wonderful on her :heart: Gold accesories and fur definately looks good on her~

The background is so detailed too!:heart::heart: I love the mix of blue and purple hues...blue is just my favorite color. This is just marvelous and I dont know how to thank you enough, seriously... Thak you so much! Muito Obrigada!:heart: ^^ You made my character look so elegant!

Merry christmas to you as well ^^ Feliz Natal!!

Awww, I am so happy!!! :glomp:

I wasn't sure about the design, but I saw she had totally different clothes on the two reference pictures, so I dared a bit inventing. I am glad you didn't mind!
I am also glad you liked the hue! X) I couldn't know about your favourite colors, it was a lucky guess then ^___^
Your chracter is lovely, she was a real pleasure to draw.

Buon Natale!!!...or...buone feste, since my reply arrived a bit in delay ^^;

Oohh! You should definitely give it a try to WoW then! O u O I don't know if you're into video games that much, but if you are you can try it for free! :dummy: I'm not kidding when I say that game can be the source of soooo much inspiration! :love:

lol hummmmm considering that game seems to be never-ending I suppose it wouldn't be a good thing for me-when I like a videogame I get stuck on it 24h\7 until i finish it, so that could be quite bad for me :°D I could consider browising for OSTs and art anyways...

Lol! Well, actually if I'm not wrong this is the last expansion that WoW will ever have, you can level up to 90 and that's it, the quests that follow the story are all set and once you're done with them you can only do what are called "daily quests" or focus on gearing your character by playing dungeons, or do some PvP with other players, there are so many different ways of playing the game, it depends on each one x3 but I would be lying if I said that the game doesn't get boring from time to time, actually, it's pretty normal for users to stop playing for a while and deactivate the account, to then come back whenever they feel like it, everything's right there like the last time played ;D
Too bad though, I would have loved to play with you! :iconyayzplz:

Aww, I really like the colours you used and the background, how you did it! It's kind of mix between painting and cellshading and adding that texture is also a really nice touch. :lol:

First of all Meery Christmas to you too and now back to the drawing... Well executed and I do like how you put the character in this background. She might be cold though :D

Thank you so much! ihihi well, since she is a spirit, probably her body is not affected by cold the same way as human one (joking, I just have more fun on sexy outfits rather on eskimo-like coats X) )
