Peppermint Winter by To-fu Peppermint Winter by To-fu
There's the snow
Look out below
And bundle up
'Cause here it comes
Run outside
So starry eyed

[link]

You know that feeling you get, when it's the first big snow of the year, and you have to go outside and watch because it's just so beautiful? That's my favorite day out of the of the whole year.

testing out how this animation stuff works. oh my god. so proud of myself that I don't even want to hear it. trying out new things. C': (But first thing my mother says to me is "Why are you drawing such an ugly girl?" D:<)

Merry Christmas to you guys! FAHRAHRAHRAHRAH-RAH RAH RAH RAHHHH! Wrapping myself up in a blanket and watching Christmas movies all day.

Congrats on the DD and yes the song you quoted is a very good song and does represent the picture and the feeling of the girl in the animation. She is beautiful and is very realistic. I too love the buildings and the footprints and the snow falling. :+fav:

Wow,...this is nice. Would have been even nicer to see her hair & scarf moving and the lights in the background glowing. This is the only painted image that I've seen animated like this.

Obviously it isn't breathtaking, as you can see the vapor leaving her mouth, yet her shoulders aren't moving. You've got the special effects, but no actual animation.
