Winter Woodland by MichelleWalker Winter Woodland by MichelleWalker
:holly: Merry Christmas, everyone!! :holly::iconsantalaplz:
First upload in over a year... I suck.

Wow, it's been so long since I last submitted something - the process has totally changed! I quite like it though. And it was soooo much fun drawing my characters again! In case anyone needs a reminder, here we have Brooke, Rhydian and Paige. Last time you saw them was Febuary 2011! :faint: That needs to change - I'm making it my mission to draw more of my characters in the New Year. :meow:

If anyone is interested, I have ten high-quality prints (with a personal message) available for 1 + P&P. Money will go to The Brooke charity to help improve the lives of working donkeys, horses and mules in poor communities. Please note me with your details if you would like one. :aww:

Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

thunderbulletz Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012
Girl, even though you haven't been around or probably drawn much lately, your artwork hasn't lost any of its beauty and magic! You actually have improved to be honest! :wow: I loved seeing this piece on the card you sent me and it's great to see the original image here too. Somehow I feel very warm and.. nostalgic even when looking at the drawing. That's the thing your art has always done to me; giving me really good vibes and making me feel calm and comfortable. That's also one reason why I still keep finding your art so inspiring!

I hope you'll be able to keep your inspiration and passion for drawing with you. It has been an honour to be your watcher and I hope to see more in the future as well. Keep up the brilliant job Michelle! :hug:
