I confess that this is rather belated. Then again, even if I finished on time I could not submit it any how due to the great Furaffinity blackout. LOL. ^\/^.
But I digress. I noticed that there is a lack of art for Saint Nicholas' Day and I decided to submit one myself. For all I know this is the first. LOL.
I drew D. Dan sleeping rather cute like not far from the boot he put out for Saint Nicholas to fill. Normally one puts out their shoe or a Sinterklaas bag, but D. Dan has not been drawn with shoes yet and a bag seemed too simple when the boot looked so nice. The boot was copied and pasted from his armor reference sheet. https://www.furaffinity.net/view/2585685/ . Saves me time. LOL. ^\/^.
The idea for this picture came to me about six months ago when I viewed a picture by sjq111 called Sleepy found at https://www.furaffinity.net/view/2412602/ . After seeing it I was inspired to draw D. Dan in the same manner. I decided not long after to do a Saint Nicholas' Day picture and to wait till it would be appropriate to draw it and to allow time for my skills to improve. I am rather satisfied with the result.
At best I could add some holly on the 'Happy Saint Nicholas' Day' greeting, but that is unnecessary and I took too long doing this anyhow. LOL. ^\/^.
Happy Saint Nicholas' Day and a Merry Christmas to everyone. ^\/^.
Traditional pencil drawing that has been inked traditionally. It was then scanned and edited digitally to clean, improve the lines and color with added filters for photographic and painting effects. (finished project).
