Secret Santa unveiled

Hello guys, we did not have that many Secret Santa this year - and a couple of them turned their secret santa into a trade so I do not know how that deal ended.

The ones that were granted for this year are in for a treat! :D Especially because one of the present, at one point, became a collaboration.

Let's begin with the wishes:

1) playlist of songs requested by Annaquata - list put together by elianthos

CLICK HERE  to download the file with this huuuge list of songs that covers most of the Pirate Balthasar. 
Although not updated, this playlist is made of all the songs that several readers have proposed over the years as ideal soundtrack for certain moment in the story.

2) Andromeda and Lorenzo's wife - requested by Vivian... adopted by Rey.


3) a picture of Martin in elegant clothes requested by Rey and adopted by Vivian.


4) This one came out of a request and then a bail out of sort but lucky for us... it was picked up by Annacquata and elianthos decided to design a cover for this beautiful fanfiction involving Pea, Kane and a mysterious wish.

You can read it in English or in Italian. By the way - this is the cover!


Having said so I think you guys should collaborate more often because this ended up being a great Christmas treat for me as well. Hahahah.

Very brave and badass looking.

Anniversary - Sketchaday - n. 7 - Zoo trip

I had gone there with the intention to draw peacocks... but then Ulysses was wounded and kept hopping away from little kids - usually he is friendlier but something happened to his leg.
 And so I opted for other animals.

 The lemurs freaked me out a bit because they keep waking behind me and the last time I went there one of them stole my pencil - except this time around I have a lamy safari fountain pen and I really didn't want for them to steal it.

 Walking in the Singapore zoo takes for ever, there's a whole lot of walking and that shrinks the time for drawing - these four pages were done in about 2 1/2 hours.

Anniversary - Sketchaday - n. 6 - Lio's hair

This #sketchaday question was: can we have a Lio hairdo tutorial?
Then she went ahead, grabbed a whisk and said: teeheehee, like this!
And whipped the hair like cream.
I guess we'll never know how she does it.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year guys!
Have a calendar!


This was designed for an A3 size - I have a feeling in A4 the calendar might be mighty small - anyways in case you wanted to print this here is the link to the pdf files (mind the size, it's quite huge, I kept the resolution high in case you want to print this bigger).
