I held a "Pay It Forward" giveaway contest during Christmas time where the basic gyst was that I was giving away a free chibi-style character commission, but the catch was that you could not get it for yourself; you had to nominate someone else to receive it, and give me a reason as to why they deserved it.
I love holding giveaways like that, it just makes me feel good to Give Back to a wonderful community, and I think it helps foster a sense of generosity when others Pay It Forward
The winner of the giveaway nominated her husband who would not be around for the holidays, as he's serving our armed forces out at sea in a submarine. The idea of a husband and father not being able to be home for Christmas with his wife and sons kind of gave me a nudge in the heart, and so I decided that I would gift the commission to them
So here it is; she asked that I draw her husband's cartoony lucky Irish husky dog, and so I toonified and chibi-fied him. I hope they like it; it was a lot of fun to do
Happy New Year, everyone
