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

edit: Also, Dex's is absolutely spectacular.

Thanks Johasu and Merry Christmas. I might have missed the reference I think :)

Great entries overall. Good job everybody :)

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

Loving the gifts from gogglecrab, homeworld and pepperwheel :)
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!

Ah, such lovely gifts! Some really beautiful pieces here. Very sad that I was unable to partake. Still completes my christmas to browse through the list.

wolfenoctis and Dex: you really outdid yourself.

As soon as I read your list, UFOs stood out to me for some reason. Glad you like it! Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the gift, skamocore! It's Blooddragon meets Meerkat Manor. Awesome!

Since I was too late (and stuffed with food) to get into regular Santa this year..
Let it be known that I'm working on substitute gift for crozier.
(so there are no unnecessary duplicates etc. etc.) ;)
