This would be my (not so) annual Christmas picture! Actually...this is one of the first times I've even done
a Christmas picture! X3 Anyway, it is--of course--of the cast (or the majority thereof) of Pirates of the Caribbean; the Past of Four Souls (read my journal for more information). Except for the plushie at the top of the page. That is Ben B.'s (Cerberus) Morrowind character, the homicidal maniac Argonian, Wally (named after the Dilbert character), as a plushie. Sitting on his spear, which apparently, judging by the hole in the ceiling, came through the roof with the tree already
attached to it. *shrugs*
Anyway, to name the characters, the red-haired guy with an eyepatch who is giving a thumbs up (or jabbing his thumb in the direction of the group) is Adrian Frost (the twin brother to the much beloved Talia Frost, and both siblings are ~gracifer
's characters). The guy behind him with blonde hair, all wrapped up in wrapping paper and bows (appropriate, if you know the character) is Drew (the antagonist of the story and one of my characters). The guy on top of the tree on the really thin ladder and wearing a Santa hat is Will Turner (...yes, it is Orlando Bloom, you Orli junkies...). The woman in the dress, staring at the parrot on her head, is Elizabeth Swan/Turner (in the story, I hate to say to you Orli junkies, she is married to him--and by the way, Will and Elizabeth are the hosts of the party, I guess). The monkey near the table is Jack the monkey (X3). The red-haired woman with a carolling book and a red scarf is Talia Frost (as mentioned before, ~gracifer
's character). The silver haired (and yet very young) guy behind her (or rather, next to her) is Asher (another of ~gracifer
's characters). The black-haired man with a red bandana and holding out mistletoe to the blonde woman is Captain Jack Sparrow (GO SARAH AND JACK! SUPPORT SARAH AND JACK!!!). The blonde woman looking skeptically at Jack is Sarah Warren (oh yes, MY character. SUPPORT SARAH AND JACK.). Oh yeah, the parrot is Mr. Cotton's parrot, from the movie.
I think the coloring turned out great--all the brightness of it and the happy warmness of it makes me really happy and fuzzy inside. The tree looks stuffy, as do the lights, walls, and wood borders on the windows, but I think the coloring of the characters, table, candle, Drew's wrapping paper, and sky/windows/weirdly unnatural bright blue PotC moonlight make up for it. I'm REALLY happy with it.
It's sorta my Christmas present for ~ gracifer
(yeah, I'm cheap and am uploading it anyway). It took me four hours to color with those colored pencils (and the windows with the dark blue sky literally killed my fingers...augh...), so I really, really, REALLY hope she likes it as much as I do. It looks how I planned it. ^^ Okay so...merry Christmas...again!
Sarah and Drew belong to me
Talia, Asher, and Adrian belong to ~ gracifer
Jack, Will, Elizabeth, Jack (of the monkey variety), and Mr. Cotton's parrot belong to Disney...as does the weirdly unnatural bright blue PotC moonlight
