D'awwww!  That's adorable!

So I actually started an attempt at a background.   I'll have to see how my coloring goes this weekend.  I might try something different.
^_^ Glad you like it. I thought it was pretty adorable myself. Wintersday around here needs more charr! lol
I hop you get a chance to finish it! Looking forward to seeing it redone!

Finished the bishops, working on the kings and queens.  They were supposed to be sitting in mounds of crumpled wrapping paper but clay just doesn't fold like paper so it kind of looks like they are bundled in blankets.

Tomorrow will be finishing the knights and glazing time.

@Kiya - Those are great bishops!   Can't wait to a King Quaggen and Queen Quaggen.

Here's a bit of an edit to my entry.  I'll see if I do coloring/shading that's different from my calendar entry.

Edit -

I managed to coloring the new background :D   This will likely will be the final version.

Looking forward to seeing the finished entries from everyone else!

Turning out really cute Kiya! Possibly with a brighter color they would look more like paper?
Overlord that turned out well :D Why is poor King Thorn roasting on an open fire? lol
In case it needs to be more formal...
Idea for Second Entry: Charr cub snuggling her plush griffon
Art form: Digital
Progress Gallery Link:http://psychokitteh....t.com/#/d5r6iup (also the final)
Good luck to everyone! <3

@Kiya: I loooove the Quaggan! I think bundled blankets are super cute, better than paper :D

@Frost: Those two snuggles are way adorable! I adore the plush griffon (have both the tonic and the mini), and I wish I could give mine a squishy hug like this ^_^ Very Wintersday spirit-y!

Finishing the last 4 quaggans right now, should be ready to bake before the kids get off the bus. Here is a pic of what I did yesterday.

The glaze really helps the colors, especially the black for the top hats and the metallics for the king and queen wrapping and crowns.  I should be done just slightly after kids go to bed tonight.  It will still be the 14th though, east coast time!

@Frost Valkyrie- I was running Fractals when a friend mentioned they really wanted to see a /hugplushgyphon emote :) Great pic!

@KiyaKoreena - Those would make for one awesome chess game!  I like how you can deduce the unit/role of the pieces based on their designs.

Minami and Overlord- Thanks! :) means a bunch. My first year actually getting to participate ^_^ I want to snuggle my griffon so bad!
Kiya- The glaze helped a lot. Can't wait to see them all lined up ^_^
Cirkle- Nope you're fine haha. I guess soundcloud is experiencing some issues so I wasnt able to listen -sadface- I'll keep checking back.

FINAL Final and my time here said 10:19pm on the 14th.  Heehee.  Big picture version too.


Too tired to get the color balance done and out of time.  3 of the knights fell over during baking, so I had to do some creative sanding to fix up those pieces.

My chess set got posted on the GW2 FB page and someone pointed out I mixed up the colors for the kings on the lower part.  Eeep!! *headbang on desk* LOL. And queen and king starting positions on board.  *double headbang on desk*  Hehee.

I didn't notice at all, but it was the first thing my daughter said (after 'awwwwwww').

I was staring at it this morning thinking something seemed off (even that exact spot) and I never figured it out until it got pointed out. I guess that is why writers have editors.

I also had the plushies from the calender for my second  http://www.guildwars...#entry2136637�� front page doesn't have them linked.

Remember to get your votes in for the community award, details here

I have been going through the entries and we have so many wonderful accomplished artworks, it is amazing.  I am a little mournful for the entries that did not make it through to a version that could be considered even nearly finished though.  I really would like to see how they would have turned out.
