Frozen Christmas

Not impressed snowman

The Snow Maiden

This is the snow maiden or Snegyrochka, she is Father Frost's niece. She was created out of snow by an elderly couple who couldn't have children. with the help of the North winds and Father Frost she was brought to life and became the old couples daughter. Unfortunately she could not stay with them when spring came, so she was adopted by Father Frost and is now his helper and bring Christmas joy to all.  There is another version of her tale and you can easily find it on Wiki. she is kinda our version of Miss Claus. Hope you guys like it, first time posting. Hoping to do this more often.

Santa Claus has been to town...

I remember as a kid lying in my bed unable to sleep. Santa had been but I was waiting impatiently  for a more respectable time to get up (6.30am would do!!). That waiting is a very strange period of time. It's so quiet, you can hear the air and you feel like you're the only person awake in the world.

In this picture, Santa finished up his deliveries hours ago at this house and he's celebrated that moment. The town is still but i'd like to think there's some kid out there who is going through what I did.
Here is my Rudolph. Merry Christmas everyone!

Theme - Christmas Songs


We've come to the last artblog of the year!

The theme is Christmas (shocker!!!). You can do whatever you please but for those struggling to come up with ideas i'll throw this option at you - 'Christmas Songs'. Base a picture on a christmas song that you like

here's a few suggestions:

Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer
The Little Drummer Boy
Frosty The Snowman
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
Winter Wonderland
12 Days Of Christmas
It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In
You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch
Mr. Hankey The Chris........(actually not that one)

This all sounds rather twee but we want your more weird and subversive entries too (as long as it's in good taste).

a bunch of mad looking fellas

This is the basic idea although I wouldn't mind at all if it was modified.   As long as it was bold, colourful and had lots of spammy faces in it.  Bit concerned it might be a bit too trippy.  The more I was looking at it, the more I was getting freaked out.

this sort of thing ...

or something like this...

Space T-Rex
