First off, I know it's well late for Christmas. I was busy >_> I AM busy. But not so busy that I'd forget that apparently drawing "horses with boobs" (or our favourite horse with boobs, Strip) is a Christmas tradition. Therefore this.
Second, those of you who know the characters may be wondering why Strip and Strop are actually in the same picture and how this isn't a violation of the rules of the universe from which they came from. Let's just say in an alternate universe
It all started when Sai presented Strip with her Christmas present. Haphazardly wrapped with many gaps, it, like the present itself, left little to the imagination. Strip was, naturally, delighted, and demonstrated as such by proceeding to change into it right then and there. This was immediately followed by Strop and Cen falling over each other trying to stop the other from glimpsing any indecent exposure, which promptly escalated into a running battle of sneaky-peeksies, which resulted in the giant Christmas-tree-that-was-clearly-too-large-for-the-room (courtesy of a certain lunatic who had gone out drinking the previous night and had as yet failed to return) falling over and wrapping paper from all the other presents being strewn all over the floor. Sai was too busy giggling to realise that Cen hadn't opened her present to him yet.
For her part, Strip was completely oblivious to all this, for she was already mentally on her way to the nearest mirror. But before she could go anywhere, her attention was drawn to the tall, lanky silhouette of a man plastered to the glass door leading to the balcony. Putting on a casual air, she sauntered to the door and slid it open.
"Hi there Kai, do you think this suits me?"
Finally, what I've somehow done here is something I generally try to avoid... pics like these tend to fall in to that awkward uncanny valley of "wow that body is hot but above the neck is a HORSE HEAD AAAAAAAAA", and honestly that gets me too. That's why I've started going towards more cartoony styles. But I was having so much fun with the shading this time around I guess I got carried away, and subsequently had a lot of fun posting it on Armorgames and ****ing up a few heads lol.
