Okay, I know there's potential that this might stir up some kind of shitstorm in the comments, so I apologize to the Bon Bon / Lyra shippers in advance if this picture pushes your buttons the wrong way. I just find Caramel and Bon Bon to be really cute together (their names even fit together! ^_^), and I wanted to do a Christmas romance drawing anyway. I couldn't resist combining my favorite holiday with one of my favorite crack ships, so hopefully someone out there will enjoy it (and hopefully the slash fans will be able to forgive me).
I had a lot of fun with the lighting in this drawing. I wanted to re-create the feel of the soft glow of a fireplace, and mix it with the colorful electric lights of a christmas tree. I actually started off with two gradients layered on top of each other, and went from there.
If you want some fitting music, I reccomend "Baby it's cold outside." ^_^ [link]
