The Santa Of Darkness
from another world
greets you with invitation
Bringing you the gift of desires
eternity made by
your mind and soul will
come true as I hold on to the
that will show
you the way of your
endless dream and ambition
rejoice, so hesitate
no more and come to me
Make a wish and behold of the
that will bless you with delights
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Where there are women, there will definitely be men as RiikaInfinityy brings you to another side of her realm by bringing you another series of “The Men of Darkness & Sins”. Be prepared to be driven in to the world of darkness once again.
These digital arts are created by the original artist and only manipulation and toning are made just for this series of character development and story poem mode.
And this is the sixth installment of the series entitled “The Santa of Darkness”.
As today is Christmas, I decided to create my very own Santa from the darkness! I am sure none of you will mind such a handsome and young Santa, wouldn’t you? =D
The coloring took quite a while and I especially have a hard time working on the coloring of leaf part because it is very small, I could not add much details on it, so some parts will look kind of flat. I did some texture mappings on the special leaves and flowers, also did it for the fur on the Santa’s coat. I had also use smudging technique to create cloudy texture on the main coat layer.
Print is available here at DeviantArt.
I will go on hibernation mode until Monday when I will bring you the final installment of the series. After that, I will be starting out on the 4th book on 1st January of the Tributes of Sonia. I also will be working on my portfolio as I am planning to go and learn more about game design stuffs during January, so I will probably be only writing when I have the time :D~
Also, I would like to take this opportunity to announce that I will not be accepting any awards from anyone, not because I am sick or tired of it but I think someone deserve it more than me, I just love writing and the fun of it, I don’t think awards are necessary for me. I appreciated everyone’s work and love to have everyone around in my blog, so stay on the ride together, we still have a lot of fun! >=P
Have lots of fun! Cheers! Once again, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
