A Peahen in a Pear Tree by AlfaFilly A Peahen in a Pear Tree by AlfaFilly
Okay, so it's not a pear tree, but close enough!

My gift exchange for ~OpheliazBloodyMary from =SinisterEternity's Secret Santa! Her characters Nyu Wu the Peahen, Jubei the goat, and Jiyu the rabbit. I don't know if Jiyu was actually included in the list but I wasn't sure and wanted to add her anyway cause she looked adorable. xD

I found it kinda ironic that I got a choice to do a goat character considering my previous year's comic work involving a goat character (aka Chordata) so I couldn't not choose her! And she's really quite lovely. I enjoyed her the most, and learning about her as a character. I'd also never drawn a peafowl before so that was intriguing, but fun.

I hope I didn't mess their personalities up too bad. I did a good deal of gallery stalking but I likely still missed things (mostly with Nyu Wu). Either way, hope you enjoy! :heart:

Merry Holidays and Happy Decemberween! <3

Also, I freakin' love drawing trees >8U So. Much.
And even though it has it's share of flaws, I do want to say that I would love critiques/tips if you have any. I haven't really specified lately that I'd like them, but I just wanted to let everyone know to not be shy about it. I'd love to continue improving. C:

Nyu Wu is not amused.

Maybe if you put a crown on her head she'd feel better about being stuffed in the tree?


It's really well done, although I do have one problem with it - Jiyu has no whiskers on one side. It just irks me ^^'

Well she needs to get in the Christmas spirit and be happy about it >8C

Maybe someone should dress her up as Santa! That would be glorious.

Oh, I've always done whiskers like that. xD They always just kinda hover there on the side of their face haha

Heh, something tells me she wouldn't be happy XD


Nah, I meant that she appears to be missing them on one side entirely ^^'

Likely not xD

Yeah I've always done that too. xD Like, er... here [link] I used to do it because the other whiskers would disrupt the features of the face. Sort of a stylistic choice. I've been thinking about changing it, but it's a hard habit to break it seems ^^;

Jiyu looks so happy. :D Gets me in the holiday mood. I need it, because unfortunately, it doesn't really feel like Christmas this year. :<

Such a cheery little bunny!

It's like that for me and a lot of others too it seems. If bad stuff hasn't happened then the cheer just isn't there. :C I have been able to cheer myself up with the slightest things (I have a little tree on my desk that makes me smile every time. ^^) but other than that this year has kinda had a lot of negatives to it so it's more of a "hurry up and end already!" type of feeling that kinda overshadows the Christmassy spirit. :'U

Even so, the end of a year comes a new beginning. And the holiday season should be there to cheer you on into it. C:

I hear ya! & Even so, I've had an amazing past 4 months (so amazing <3). I think part of it is the fact that we're probably having a green Christmas. I'm sure you're used to it being in Florida and all, but in Canada that's just sad! xD

I've got a little Christmas tree of my own, too. Makes my room cozy. C:

I think she likes the picture! =^^=

Nyu Wu shouldn't be too unhappy, Pines provide decent shelter, and since this is outside she doesn't have to worry about someone plugging her tail into an electrical outlet! :D

Cute lil Jiyu is so happy! I love the way you draw her body anatomy! THAT FURRY FOOT. :heart:
Jubei, on the other hand, looks so sexy here. I LOVE the position and the way you drew her face& eyes. OuO it's resplendent! :heart:
OHOHOHOH For Nyu Wu. well of course she would have that expression. Who'd get upset being part of the Xmas decor anyway? XDXDXD

I'm very very glad you like it! I started the sketch right after the first of December and worked on it up to the other day ^^ Especially took some time stalking your gallery for every pic of Jubei pfff So I could get it as nice for you as I could. C:

That is the best song ever! 8U
And yes, gotta have the furry bunny feet!

Haha, yeah I have a goat character too but she's not pretty like Jubei X'D Mine's more creepy and arrogant 8D pfff

Glad I got everyone right then! <3 And Merry Christmas to you too! :iconlaplz:

Oooh sweeet. C8 How many hours does it take for you to finish an art though? Just wondering. ;u;
FFFF. I GOT STALKED AS WELL. :'D This turned out awesome. 8D I can't stop looking at it. :icondawhatplz:

IKR? xD a song tribute for this art. :lol:

CREEPY? CREEPY YOU SAY? VB I love creepy babes. Jubei is one too if you didn't notice. c: She just knows how to keep that composure, but she's a crazy gal too(thanks to her past. >A>)

Of couuuurse~! :aww: Have a wonderful frabjous day! :iconchuuplz:

That they do! :iconiloveitplz:

Umm, it usually depends. This one I worked on off and on but if I had to take a guess for if I would have done it straight-through, maybe 3 hours to sketch (between planning postures and positions and stuff) and 5 hours to color and shade. So an average pic probably takes 8-10 hours. Unless I'm digitally lining it, then that can add anywhere from 2-3 more hours cause I hate lining digitally 8'U

Ahaha, indeed 8D Least she can stay in her groove and be stylin' all at the same time! My creepy goat gal is a very... "special" lass 8C She's creepy in the face with her freaky bucked teeth and legit goat eyes. And her fashion sense is eye burning! And she steals souls so that doesn't help either 8'U [link]

You toooo <33

Oooh I see. OuO usually, I finish work in 3. But when background is added, it's going to make 5 hours all in all. XD;; PFFT, I don't like lining digitally too. ;u;

Indeed. XD Steals souls huh? That's very interesting. 8D <33333

Yeeeeey! :iconoldschoolownedplz:
