The mousey is so, so, so, so wicked cute! The cup and the candle and the safety pin and all the other minute details are just so good and well-thought out. I really want to eat the peppermint...I'm pretty sure the mouse won't mind. 

 

Yet another masterpiece, Pixey. Beautiful work!

That looks great Pixey!
I love the patterns on the blankets. The illustration looks like you scanned a watercolour to start?  - good technique and a talented painter!

Happy Christmas ;)

OOOOHHH! What a great technique you used here. I love the mouse's sweet expression. As Helen said, all of the elements works so well together. Pretty patterns & colours. Wonderful to see & the safety pin on the cap for the candle holder is just fabulous.

Thank you so much @Helen, @Dryda, @Red, @Seerose and @Barbieq for your super comments on the Christmas mouse in a cup :D .  Your words are much appreciated.

 

Now a little something I did using @Xhin's globe tutorial and his super plug-in and the gold was done with some steps @PeterPawn gave me many moons ago ;) .

That is so gorgeous Pixey. The strap is brilliant and the two different textures complement each other beautifully,and you have even included the clasp to do it up. Super work. Personally I would have chosen a different shape for the part surrounding the jewel- oval maybe. But that's just my preference. The jewel is another great piece of work.

All in all a very impressive image.

Thank you all so much :) .

 

@Gooney - yes, I agree that an oval would have been better, but then it would have made the bracelet a lot longer.  Perhaps then I'd have had to use 3D to make it curve?  I'll have to give that a try!

@Helen - so glad you like it, many thanks :music: .

@Seerose - I too had pressies like this for Christmas (not!) ;) Thank you for the kind words.

@Red - thanks for liking it .... impressive is a lovely word :) .

@NN - it's so nice of you to comment - such lovely words thank you so much for saying that :cake: .

@Toe - thanks for visiting and saying those lovely things :D.

Wow! Pixey that is just wonderful work. The colouring on the band is fabulous but the gem is adorable. The clasp is what really gets me - so real!

@Barbieq25 - so glad you liked the 'bling' :D .  Funny about the clasp though - I chose to make it that type, influenced as I now have to wear a Medialert bracelet and that kind of clasp is the only way I can put it on when I'm on my own :( .

 

@racerx - so kind of you to stop by and comment - Thank You!  Yes, some of the portraits I've made have taken a lot of time, but I find it very soothing. 

 

@johnnysdream - thanks so much.  It actually wasn't that time-consuming but I'm not sure I can remember how I did the gold.  I'll have to practice some more soon ;) .

Pixey I don't post much anymore but I couldn't help myself with your gallery.

You've taken PDN portrait painting to the next level!  I am so impressed with your portraits.  Especially the Hugh Jackman one.  Wish I could I have a lesson in digital painting in PDN.

So very impressive!   :D

Hey there @Nab - what a lovely comment and I thank you so much. I'd wondered where you were hiding ;) and it's so nice of you to post.  There are two videos under my siggy which show, at great speed I know, how I paint the portraits.  Perhaps I could get around to making a tutorial in writing one day :P .  The Hugh Jackman took me forever ............. about a year actually.
