:rudolph: This goes out to all my watchers, to everyone to favourites my work, to everyone to leaves a comment whether it is big or small! :heart: For all my good friends, the new and the old! :aww: To all those who inspire me and make me want to be a better artist! :love: You all make deviantART such a great place to be, and the equine artist community a seriously awesome one to be a part of! :iconilyplz: Without you guys, I wouldn't be the artist that I am today!

:star: Thank you to every single one of you for being so darned wonderful!! :snowflake: I hope you all have a truly happy and special Christmas, and a fantastic festive season if you don't celebrate Christmas! :holly: May it be filled with lots of love, happy memories and good times! :santa:

Trav and Russo are enjoying a very purple and snowy Christmas waaaay up north, just so they can see the Northern Lights! :giggle: And they got a little dressed up for the festive season, and I think Russo should wear those ribbons more often! ;P Perhaps he should wear mistletoe instead of holly on his head? :lmao: Who knows what he'd get up to! All in the good spirit of Christmas! :XD:

Wow. I freaked out when I saw this GORGEOUS masterpiece! :faint: :wow: :love: :jawdrop:

Thank you so much for the kind words. :aww: I know they aren't to anybody in particular, but it was so sweet of you to say those things. :hug:
Trav and Russo look SO amazing here, Dana! :wow: :love: Their poses look great, and they look like they are really ready for Christmas to be here, again! :giggle: I am such a darn LATE commenter! :shakefist: I wish I had commented earlier, I am so sorry. ^^;
The anatomy, shading, and highlights look perfect, and I love the more realistic style. :nod: Great job of showing the muscles in their legs and necks, without making the shading wayyy too evident! :XD: Their expressions look amazing, too, with those cute sweet smiles. :aww: I love how their colors and markings are inverse, too, so it adds a contrast with both the white of the snow, and to each other! :giggle: Those manes and tails look amazing, too, and I love the shine has a more realistic feel to it, not being way too evident. :love: :heart: I just LOVE their Christmas decor! :santa: :holly: :heart:
Now for the background. :faint: Where do I start!? The Northern Lights look amazing, and so does the pretty night sky. :aww: The snow is super pretty, and so are the trees and the mountains! :love:
Amazing job on this Christmas drawing, Dana! :glomp: :love: :heart: I can't wait to see more artwork from you! :icongwomp:
