So! Here's my Secret Santa gift for our beloved Lothar. There weren't any specifications given so I decided to go for something remiscent of Lothar's personality as a comic creator. Something that felt random, rude and really colorful. And this became the result of that process.

Hope you find it to your liking Lothar, and have a happy holiday🎅🎅🎅

This piece is rather Rad and Incredible! 🤩



@usedbooks

Baking cookies is such a delight. What are the chances that you were randomly sorted two years in a row by the generator. UnderTheBlackHat now has a lovely two part series! 😁

UsedBooks! Oh my, thank you so much, and as Kawaii said, we now have a series going, seems the powers that be think you're a good match for us. Perhaps it's because both our comics seem to have certain ‘types’ that match up?

Either way, thank you so much we LOVE IT!! It's going right next to last years as a way of showing that obviously, everyone made friends on that first outing huh!

Thank you again and may your holidays be grand, loving and full of warmth and smiles!

Thanks, kawaii! Brainstorming holiday traditions, I remembered the one my sister and I started and continue every year. We bake cookies together via facetime because she lives in Australia. (Scheduling is a bear because of holiday events and a twelve hour time difference, but we always manage.)

Last week was a rough week, and I was going through a lot of creative frustration, a bit of a block creatively, and anxiety levels were at a really high peak. And I thought I might not even be able to do the Secret Santa, but I put my foot down and decided by damn, I am going to do one of the things that gives me the most joy in a year!

I'm really grateful to nightmarelunatic for doing such a charming but challenging comic that feels honest and really profoundly resonated with me. I've been going through some of the same challenges and difficulties, and it made me feel at first uncomfortable – because it was outside of my comfort zone and I didn't think I was ready to deal with it and get through it – and then much better, because it was just what I needed to get to a better place.

That said, I wasn't able to do the request exactly as requested, but I was hit by powerful inspiration and I hope this will make you smile and laugh as much as it did me. I swear, it's intended in a comedic tone! I hope I have managed to convey something that will make you giggle as much as it made me laugh even while I was working on it.

Have a wonderful, happy holiday season, everyone. I hope you'll all find what you need.



Incidentally, nightmarelunatic, if you'd like a slightly larger png version of the file, just let me know and I can email it to you! Hopefully you'll enjoy it!

@hushicho
This is one really neat-looking piece, Huchicho. The coloring choice of the foreground and coloring of the background outside of the window, combined with the title written on the book and the surprised expression on the characters face, gives this scene this really balanced atmosphere of both cozy and excitingly ominous. It's a really fitting atmosphere for a classic murder mystery drama. I love looking at it🙂

Hey, would you guys mind if I added these to the Halloween Fashion Show comic? It was featured and is still getting some views.

Or I could start a separate Secret Santa comic.

“No” is also a good answer.

I'd say go for it. In previous years sometimes someone took initiative to collect the pics into a comic. It's nice to have them archived like that.

From: Your Secret Santa UnderTheBlackHat



MERRY CHRISTMAS!!



And since one of us wanted snow falling… Here it is again with snow!






Sorry we had to take a couple of liberties with costumes and such.
Also, we had a big discussion about (of all things) SNOW… so that's why there are two versions.

There are of course, FULL RESOLUTION versions of both images, but they are so big we'd probably have to email them to you.

Oh wow! I’m loving it, LOVING IT!! I don’t know how you put this together so fast. (I have such a hard time trying to 3D model SolarCell and DarkBeauty. Nowhere near like this.) Plus you made two versions? Thank you so much. I hope you don’t mind me using this as fan art for my comic. (PS: when you said “We”, it was a team effort? what was the debate about the snow? Still freaking awesome. Sorry just curious.)

Speaking of archiving. How come no one has put any of these on a publish page on the Duck? I mean, I know it’s a gift but It would show the rest of the ducks the wonderful gifts we have giving each other and maybe join next years. Just a thought.

@Sleeping_Gorilla,

Do you need full res versions of the art or are you just capturing what we put up here?

Since we feel the art belongs to the persons gifted, we give you permission to use our gift for your page!

And, yeah, it looks kinda cool… a good place to highlight the art!

I'm Secret Santa for Tantz this year. She wanted art for Martha and Fotis, so here they are coming out of the TARDIS for no reason.

Thank you very much! This is great! :D They'd appreciate the TARDIS in their situation I think. Merry Christmas and/or happy holidays!
