Picture Sunday|| December {1}

Wherein Treskie can't have nice things, because she's ruddy awful blogger.

Like, hi, guys, I'm not dead!

*Facepalm*

By the way it's December.

What? WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN? HOW? WHAT? IT WAS NOVEMBER 1ST LIKE A WEEK AGO??

Anyway, happy December, everyone!

You want to see some pictures? Sorry, there aren't a lot this week, despite me vanishing for over two weeks. I've been super busy, super tired, super freaking distracted.

1.) Sometimes I find quotes on pinterest that make me go 'awwwwwww.'



 2.) Sometimes I listen to music and draw the lyrics in totally unreadable ways.



3.) I'm not sure how I feel about sunflowers, but I like this a lot.



4.) SO LOOK AT THIS CUTE PICTURE OF KATE DOING CUTE THINGS WITH TRISTAN.



5.) And then I draw a version of this almost every year, using different song lyrics, but can we just talk about how rarely people depict Mary cuddling Baby Jesus?


GUYS, YOU REALIZE CHRISTMAS IS IN LIKE THREE WEEKS?

GUYS, CHRISTMAS IS IN LIKE THREE WEEKS!!!

I'm so excited!

And I want to make Christmas rings, and Christmas cards, and set up my tree, and decorate, and sing, and listen to Christmas music, and I'm just....




Haha, anyway. I'm going to call it a night. 
Hopefully I shall be more artful next week. 

Question time!
Best overall?
Favorite quote? 
Best on toned paper?
What's your favorite Christmas song?

I love you all!

  2. Okay, the best overall in this one is definatly the picture of the precious baby Jesus being cuddled by his Most Holy and Immaculate Virgin Mother, Mary.
    And my favorite quote this time is the song lyrics in that picture.
    The favorite on toned paper isssss... duh! Tristan and Kate.. love them and that one is cute! Love Tristan's hat :)

    1. Awwww. Thank you! XD (Well yes, Mary has to cuddle Baby Jesus, who doesn't cuddle new babies?)

      Heeee. The picture with the lyrics that are all over the place and hard to read? *covers face* WELL I think that one's cute, despite the fact that I didn't turn out how I wanted it to. lol.

      Yaaaay! Tristan and Kate are completely adorable and she's just sassy enough that Tristan doesn't mind when she ties him up with lights. (I love his hair too, it's all shaggy and messy. XD)
      I did know that. *pats self on back for remembering* But yeah, I know that feeling.

    1. SORTA ANGRY CAUSE HE LIKES TO BE SERIOUS AND SORTA PLEASED CAUSE KATE DID IT AND HE'S IN LOVE WITH HER. LOL.

  4. You make a good point with #5. Of COURSE she'd be cuddling him! It's what one naturally does with babies. How can the artists forget that?

    Best overall? -#4 is pretty funny. Kate: Heh heh heh. I can get away with this. Tristan: She can get away with this...but nobody else can.
    Favorite quote? -#3. I was not expecting sunflowers at this time of year. It's a warm and bright contrast to the cold day.
    Best on toned paper?- #1
    What's your favorite Christmas song?- Usually with each year two or so songs stand out as special. This year it's 'O Holy Night' and 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing'. Especially the latter.
    'Veiled in flesh the Godhead see!
    Hail, the incarnate deity!
    Pleased as Man with Man to dwell!
    Jesus, our Emmanuel!'
    Beautiful

    1. RIGHT? I've always been like, 'YOU GUYS HE WAS TINY AND SHIVERING AND COLD, SHE'S NOT GONNA LIVE OUR LORD IN THE MANGER, ALL FREEZING. JEEZ.'

      #4- That is literally their entire relationship. XD
      #3.- Yeah, we had Sunflowers in the shop last week, and I was just like YESSSS.
      #1- thank you. XD

      Ooh I DO THE SAME THING! This year it's Gesu Bambino (Which I still can't find a good recording of, this lady sings it for Andre Reiu, but that's the only acceptable version...) and Silent Night. Like... "Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.." IS SO COOL

  5. December! The year has flown by so fast! (Though I am looking forward to Christmas. :-) )

    1.) Oh, I love the simplicity of this. Nice work on the letters too; they're tidy and decorative. Definitely my favorite quote and the best on toned paper.

    2.) Aw! I like the pose here and the swirly lyrics and her happy expression!

    3.) Nice detail on the sunflower, especially the different colors in the leaves and the highlights of the petals! I think this is the best overall.

    4.) My favorite thing about this is their expressions: Kate looks mischievous and Tristan looks as though he's half-annoyed, half amused by the situation.

    5.) OH HOW PRECIOUS! I love the shadows and highlights here.

    One of my favorite Christmas songs is "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," particularly the third verse: "Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: 'God is not dead, nor doth He sleep. The wrong shall fail; the right, prevail, with peace on earth, good will to men.'"

    Wait...three weeks? *scrambles to amazon.com to order the rest of the presents* Merry Christmas!

    1. I know right? It's insane! (Me too, it's going to be an awesome one, I think :)

      1.) Aw thank you. I was kinda doodling that one while I was on the phone, so I'm suprised it turned out so pretty. :)

      2.) SHE LOOKS SO CUTE UGH. (hahaha, yeah I'm not proud at all. lol.)

      3.) The Sunflower was so freaking hard, like holy cow, drawing from real life is difficult.

      4.) The ONLY reason she got away with it is because Tristan's head over heels for her. lol.

      5.) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      OOh, I haven't head that one! *runs to youtube to look it up.*

      MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!

      OOh I LOVE that song. Have you heard the version by Hayley Westenra or the one that Anne Dudley arranged? THEY'RE SO BOOTIFUL. XD

      Cheers. :)

    2. I haven't heard either of those versions, but I will look them up. My favorite ones are Pentatonix, Casting Crowns and the Piano Guys versions.
