Hermy and Rudolph by Rayish Hermy and Rudolph by Rayish
Most of you know I "rediscovered" the magic of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer around Christmas time, and thus, fell in love with the vintage, old-timey stop motion appeal. That, and it's just a lovable film that deserves more appreciation than the slander it gets. But anyway, to me, Hermy and Rudolph make an adorable duo, so I drew up this card for a few family members and friends. Hermy is my favorite character in this film forever. :heart:

I've also been opened up to doing lineless drawings occasionally! If anyone has any tips or suggestions, or hey, I'm cool with critiques too! Lay it on me, I'd love to know how to improve, as I've not looked up any techniques, so I'm probably doing it the hard way, haha. Quite fun though, oh my goodness.

You make the most wonderful fanarts, especially of Rudolph! There's hardly anything I could critique in regards to lineless style (I want to try it out some more soon)! AND THOSE SNOWFLAKES. THEY'RE PRETTY. :heart:

Awesome Christmas card design, Ray!

Aw, thanks Empy! :heart: You really should give it a shot, I think you'd really enjoy doing this 8D I was having a bit of trouble figuring it out at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's incredibly easy to follow! TOO EASY IN FACT. I'm... trying to limit myself with the lineless I THINK I MIGHT BE DEVELOPING A PROBLEM, EMPY D: Youmightlooseme...

They may be different from the rest, but who decides the test?

And oh my goodness, I still have yet to see the one, and I loathe the fact I haven't been introduced to it yet. It looks amazing!

I pretty much agree with you on everything on the old Rudolph story xDD

Really? I thought you had a thing or two against it?
Or, perhaps I'm confusing that with the general dislike for the onslaught of Rudolph-esque (doglike) reindeer who always appear on DA around Christmastime. Because that IS annoying. Only Rankin/Bass can pull that off.

Well, I do HATE when people make reindeer look like dogs xD And I hate that almost every version of Rudolph is a white-tailed deer and not a REINDEER, but this one's so classic an' all

That is pretty true, I guess the media is more fond of the less bulky-reindeer? Though your rendition of them was quite lovely. Perhaps we'll send you over next Christmas to show 'em how it's done c:

But DON'T YOU KNOW? Canine anatomy is the basis of all other anatomy! If you've gotten that down, there's nothing you cannot draw! /sarcasm
