MERRY CHRISTMAS, everyone from MT, theO, DA, and AP! ^^
*offers cakes*

This is my entry for My-Maiden's contest :D
Lucky I am able to finish this today.
Tomorrow I'll be off to Singapore and back on the 5th of January :3 aaand what's exciting is that I'll probably meet Norine in person there! haha.
I hope I'll have lots of comments and faves by the time I return xD

Overview : basically I want to make a wall which has lots of food <3 haha. The idea came out from my binder's paper which shows a girl daydreaming on top of cupcakes. So I scanned those cakes and pancakes, then I vectored them. The vectoring was tough because I just had to make them look edible lol At first I just wanted to make a wintery scene. I searched for snow painting tutorials at DA, but I found a how-to-paint underwater scene tutorial instead. Then I thought, "Why don't I combine snow and this tutorial?" :D

Title : little mermaid's song, Under the Sea. I added "Wintery" for personal touch ^^ haha.

Process : I made the chibis one by one, each in a PSD file in 2048 x 1536 size. I wanted to make them as detailed as possible, buuuut I'm racing with time! Practically I started working around the 20th, and I just rushed so that I can finish it today. waaah >< background made from scratch including those fishy, jellyfish, and coral~.

One question : Does the scene actually look like it's underwater? :3

Critics/comments/faves are VERY appreciated <3
On the 5th, I'll be able to reply to all the GBs and comments :D yay~~~~
Best of luck for other entries for the contest!

Off to bed~~
Gotta wake up early tomorrow :3

    my first comment here.. =P

    i think the land is too wavy so it doesn't look really like underwater, but the water is perfect i think.
    umm,, maksudny itu tanah terlalu bergelombang, mgkn klo diratain sedikit ato dikurangin dikit gelombangnya lebih mirip hehehe..

    merry christmas and happy new year! =3
