Merry Christmas, everyone!! :dance: :woohoo: :glomp: :iconsantalaplz:

First off, my sincerest apologies for not being "here" lately - I'm not joking when I say this past week or so has been a total whirlwind. :dead: I've been trying to get all of my Christmas projects finished (which I now have!) and of course, my job has been so tiring because this is our busiest time of the year. So I'm exhausted, but happy that I managed to finish everything.... I promise I'll write a journal soon and get in touch with everyone! :hug: (And of course, note thank-you's to people and comment on all the wonderful giftart/comments etc. :heart:) I haven't forgotten you! I promise I'll start on that tomorrow. :aww:

This scene was for my first Christmas card that I had printed up specially for my buddies this year! Those of you that have received it will recognize it, and sorry to those of you still waiting... I hope it reaches you soon. :( And yes, as you've already noticed - Aerynne, Pierce and Brooke here are in the Advent Calendar, just purely because I ran out of time and couldn't make a specific picture for the 25th door. :XD: I'll be better prepared next year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!! I can't believe it's over already... all that excitement and hype and it's gone in a flash. :noes: But hey, can't do much about that! Love you all, talk to you soon!! :heart:

Thanks for looking! :hug:


Critique not desired, thank you :)

So adorable! These characters were good choices to use since their red and green manes/tails makes it so much more Christmasy and pretty to look at.
the-redowl Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
Out of interest where/how do you print your cards?
MichelleWalker Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist

the-redowl Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010

Thanks :hug:
MichelleWalker Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I agree! Not enough people know how great the site is... I've had all sorts of things from them: cards, calendars, prints, mugs, stickers etc. :D

FreisianGal Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2010
aaaawwwww.... I like your art so much. I try to make Aerynne my desktop along with her sibling. This would have been perfect if not for the watermark.
MichelleWalker Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry about that, but there are too many sticky hands on the internet. ;)
FreisianGal Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010

Big fan :la:
stripeyswirlz Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2010
iz been following your art... in a good way!
sunsetluvr247 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2010
Michelle, I love every single one of your ideas. This is one of the best. This Christmas, you have had so many incredible ideas, and an art flood. Haha, I had 10 pictures of more of yours in my inbox to go through! :D I love this, what an amazing job. And I am really sorry I couldn't enter your contest, I feel REALLY bad. I had an entry all set up but I had no way to get it on here. I am very happy for all of the contestants and winners, I just wish I could have been one of them. :( I am really sorry.

On a brighter note, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, and have a Happy 2010!!!
StellaMay2807 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2010

Maybe sometime (if your not busy) you could do a small pic for moi XD. Of my char. Fiona.

Anyways wonderful artwork. ^^
Bamy564 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2010
Oh Michelle this is just gorgeous! I'm seriously jealous of your shading abilities. Never stop drawing :heart:

Aww so beautiful :aww: They all look so elegant and seasonal :giggle: I love Pierce's scarf, it must be very warm :)

Gorgeous job! :blowkiss:

Absolutly wonderful! Wonderful ^^ This looks amazing, as always :giggle:
emmily-xo Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2009
Looks great Michelle, I love the Christmasy touches you added to each one.:aww:
ArweynXSilver Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Very nicely done Michelle :)
:nod: I know you don't want any critique, but it's not really one, Maybe the forelegs of Brooke are a little bit to short? (trust me, my necks are too long and my horses to thin, so I think that wouldn't make a big deal)
It might be possible that I'm blind...:giggle:

Or it is just your style :)
I don't mind.. I keep loving your art
and keep stalking you!:paranoid:

Pisps Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2009
Aww I love Pierce's scarf! Also, you have improved a LOT in the shading :aww:

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (Note: I say this b'cos it's theclosest event, Xmas has passed already :XD: )

HaliteAnn Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, wow, they're gorgeous!! I love the holly in Aerynne's ear, it's so cute!
I didn't think it was possible for you to improve anymore, especially considering the amazing leaps and bounds you've made in the past year or two, but you're still getting better and better!!

Merry Christmas, and thank you for being such a wonderful artist! :hug::glomp:
girl-n-herhorse Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Beautiful, as always . . . I love the addition of the foggy breath to show how cold it is :nod:
Wild-Hearts Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2009  Student General Artist

This is just beyond beautiful Michelle - I don't know HOW you can possibly keep improving but you do! :faint: this is wonderful and so festive :meow: x
