Christmas in the Castle by ssbbforeva Christmas in the Castle by ssbbforeva
THIS. THIS HAS BEEN MY LIFE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF DECEMBER. Yescrying AND WAS ONLY FINISHED LAST NIGHT.

this is definitely the largest project I've made in a loooooong time, not to mention it is a first attempt at many things. this is my first time drawing: A panned-out view of a room, a room with two light sources, Sword Knight and Blade Knight, a Christmas tree, Christmas tinsel, Christmas lights, hot chocolate, and the ARN crew (and extras!) all in the same place at the same time.
I made a TON of lineart errors and shading screw-ups (not to mention the floor tiles are completely off-kilter), but I still love this one.

can you find all of the Hoshi No Kaabii references and prove yourself a bigger nerd than I am? :dummy:

You can't cross legs like that, Forta! It is not possible to cross your legs, because you don't have legs! You have giant feet attached to your pelvis.

Wow, I really like this picture! It makes me all fuzzy inside~
Let's see... I think Kirby's opening the present from Kirby Appreciation Day. One of Curio's ancient artifacts is on the mantlepiece, and maybe one of the feet of Kirby's little dog? Oh, and they've invited Dankonyo from his island! I'm not sure who's on those balls that Sword and Blade are holding, but the ones on the tree look like Lovely, Chilidog, Octakon, Kittari-Hattari, Yamikage, Susshi, and... a Smoochum?? And their scarves might be a reference to the episode with Chillie. I have no idea who the woman on the right is, though, or that shield with the black goo.
Well done on the picture, though!

I see Dark Matter behind that shield, is that axe on the wall a reference to Sword Knight and Blade Knight having weapons hanging on their walls?~ one of the Christmas ornaments looks like Octacon from the first episode of the Kirby anime, and there's another one that looks like that monster from Episode 9 of the anime, I can't remember its name... Slice-and-Dice or Slicer-Splicer or something like that~ and one of them looks like Lovely. ^^
There's probably more references, but I haven't seen the anime in a while. I focus more on the games.

Aw, Kirby gives a present for Dedede. OMG, how cute that moment is. As Dedede gets out of the fire place, he was like,'Eh? Kirby. That's for me?'

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

This is fantastic! I think the ones are Wolfwrath, Splice n' Dice, Sasuke, Susshi, Yamikage, Scarfy, Lovely, and, Octacon. I hope you didn't think I was cheating because I couldn't find out what that octopus looking ornament was. :(

Wow this looks amazing! The shading and everything looks perfect, and Sword and Blade look great (I was surprised to learn you'd never drawn them before)

Umm... as for those references, the only one I could find was the little squid on the shelf. From episode 1? Or is it from the sushi episode? Or maybe it's nothing... XD

Holy crud, I don't even know where to begin! :omg:
As you should already know, you have some serious coloring/shading skills. You successfully made everything look so 3-D with the help of those textures. Also, I think you captured the perspective and view of the room wonderfully~ I'm super jealous. :heart: All the characters are drawn sooo well, too!

Merry Christmas to you as well!

P.S. I see the references in here. Hurr~

Beautifully crafted! This is a masterpiece! *♡*

I see lotsa references all right, for the decoration: Lovely, Saske, Wolfwrath (a.k.a Chilidog), Scarfy, Kittari Hattari, Danger (bomb demon beast), Devil Frog and others! C:
Also, there's Kirby's dog pet's tail part, Rowlin's book of Pappy and the vase which sealed the Mumby!
Awesome artwork~ :D
