:o I usually prefer non-cooked dolphins, but I'll make an exception here. Thanks for the delicious dolphin, AtskaHeart.

Some really wonderful and imaginative pieces. My favourite from the bunch being this.

Also, yay, lots of custom wrapping!

I got two from VinceBetteridge and Cellusious (which are both great by the way) and I didn't even finish my one. I don't deserve such love.

Which by the way, commencing obligatory apology - I bit of far more than I could chew and worked a lot more than expected. Sorry, I will try and finish it before the New Year. :(

Also wolfenoctis' present to gamer36 is fantastic. Also plenty of other amazing pieces. I think Hapiel's though is the cutest thing ever.

I don't know, I think there are a lot of really nice ones, like Dex's one is superb. I really like Maspotato's one too.

I haven't gotten mine yet, guess I haven't enough of a good boy  :blind:.

EDIT2: A lot of them are awesome actually. Good job everybody.

OH MY GOODNESS my gift is literally everything I could have possibly asked for. I love it! PixelPiledriver, you are the BEEEESSSST.

I also really like Dex's gift for Tim, Cyangmou's gift for Night, and my favorite has to be Homeworld's gift for Numlock. That orange, that glowyness, that composition, MAN.

This was a fantastic secret santa! Here's to next year being even better.

It's really unfortunate that so many of them are WIPs this year.

Every year I only remember secret santa when it's over, and I usually want to make stuff for the people without gifts, buty have too much excuses to even do that

The one thing I do make is a list of their likes and dislikes to see who I could make a gift for, so this year I'm atleast posting that list to lessen the amount of excuses for other people in my situation :p

Every gift is pretty good this year.

Anyway, just in case others are doing the same, I'm working on a gift for Corinthian Baby. But it won't be finished until tomorrow, if not later.

Amorphous, glad you like it! I tried to incorporate as much as I could from your list and that includes the crazy pallete. My comp is having trouble booting so I didn't get a chance to finish it but definitely will soon.  :y:

I don't know who my original secret santa is, but much love to anyone who wants to make something for me. Much appreciated!

A lot of cool pieces but my absolute favorite so far is http://wayofthepixel.net/upload/ss13/tim_from_Dex.png

Whoo, My first shout out! I'm glad you liked it!

Anyhow thanks a ton Cirpons, I'm not quite sure what it is, but it certainly does look cool ;D! There are a lot of brilliant entries this year!

By the way Metaru's gift is genius (never would have thought of making it a physical gift), I also really dig Peyton's style too. A tip of the hat goes to everyone though, great pieces everywhere!

Merry Christmas to all!

Hey overkill thank you for the present! Laser-shooting owls are among my favorite things. :D I look forward to seeing the finished product-- no rush though, I know it's the holiday season and we're all quite busy!

Tim-- glad you liked it! I had a blast working with a style similar to Mucha's and I hope it shows.

Also-- awesome pieces this year from everyone. Really liked everything here, great to see such lovely stuff. And thank you all for the compliments on my piece. I really enjoyed making it. Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone!

Dear Crozier,

I am sincerely sorry that I did not turn in your present in time. I could pull many excuses out of my hat, but I won't. Plain and simple, I kept saying to myself "Oh, I'll work on it some more tomorrow". It happened so much I just stopped thinking about it. Hopefully, if mine isn't satisfactory, Riva can make a piece that you'll love! (Crow probably hasn't gotten around to posting my work, since I sent the PM a few minutes ago, but it will most likely be up soon!)

Have a nice holiday season,

and just like last year, i'm going to fade away into darkness to resurrect right in time for the next secret santa.

Gosh, so many great pieces this year! Let's hope all of us WIP-ers can finish ours too. Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays / etc, everyone!

yaomon17: I love the character you made for me :D Great colors, I like the chaotic scarf and his demonic fire eyes. And the little blue flame! Heehee. Hope you had fun with it! :)

Dex: Thanks! I'm *really* sorry I had to submit that in such an extremely unfinished and roughly sketched state, it's a bit embarrassing :( I've been swamped with contract work, but I really hope that you'll like the final version! This at least shows the kind of elements it will have, hehe ;D

Gosh, so many great pieces this year! Let's hope all of us WIP-ers can finish ours too. Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays / etc, everyone!

yaomon17: I love the character you made for me :D Great colors, I like the chaotic scarf and his demonic fire eyes. And the little blue flame! Heehee. Hope you had fun with it! :)

Dex: Thanks! I'm *really* sorry I had to submit that in such an extremely unfinished and roughly sketched state, it's a bit embarrassing :( I've been swamped with contract work, but I really hope that you'll like the final version! This at least shows the kind of elements it will have, hehe ;D
Oh yea, it was great fun. :y:

Mashpotato, that is awesome!  I am utterly in awe of these lobsters (awebsters?).  Thank you so much!


And my apologies to Charlieton for my tardiness in giving you your present.  I've sent it to Crow and such, but for now here is a link to your gift: http://i.imgur.com/iZBSdSY.png

@Charlieton:
That's looking awesome! I really love the style!

Really great gifts this year! I can't wait to see the WiP's finished, a lot of them look really great.
Glad you do! I started off making a more ambitious gift, but as the deadline grow nearer I knew I had to do something a bit smaller. Even then, I went through several revisions before I ended up with this style. Anyway, I'm working on it a bit more. Hopefully it'll end up more dragon-y, too! ;D

Felt my heart beat as I opened up the link... YES, I'm so glad you got me a flashy tropical bird! Sweet, glossy body + cool bug. :y:

Thanks so muck Shrike, exactly what I like, to bad that I can't play this   :P

And a short note to my gift for Mandrill: I have really no idea of Warhammer 40k, but I took some time and looked into many pictures and some articles. It turns out that I really like the setting of the Eldars and so I tried my own interpretation. I'm glad that you like it and that you could recognize it  :D
And it's still WIP in some places (the hair), I will fix that as soon as possible.

Thank you Gamer36!  Better late than never, right :3 But yeah, I too found myself lacking time to do mine. Had several finals to study for and family flying in. I'm surprised I finished mine in time, too XD But, Happy Holidays to you as well!


Oh and Riva, if you haven't started that piece (or haven't gotten very far in it) I would really prefer if you made a gift for one of the people that is still giftless. I appreciate your spirit, and hope that you make someone else happy. Thank you!


Oh and I didn't have time to say this yesterday, but I LOVE the works by wolfenoctis, Tim, Cyangmou, Night, offwhite, PixelPiledriver, and Mr. Beast. I also look forward to seeing the finished versions of those wips (especially the piece from Ultimaodin- that's gonna look pretty wicked when it's done.) Bravo everyone, and great pixels!

For anyone else that wants to build the bot, I should mention that I modified the feet.
There's an extra face on one, so I cut it down to match the other.

Zizka! There's not really anything I can say for myself for being so late with your Secret Santa gift, so I'm just hoping you'll accept my apology. Got wrapped up right after I started work on your gift with a high priority project that ate all my time all the way through the end of January, so I had to be late with my gift for the first year ever :(

Happy belated santa day!
