'Twas the Night Before Christmas by RottenRagamuffin 'Twas the Night Before Christmas by RottenRagamuffin


:holly: Merry Christmas 2011! :holly: And yeah… excessive Victorian drawing room is excessive :D I put heaps of work into this; almost 200 layers, 25+ hours (yep... I'm slow ;P ), and I made the room from scratch :p

I was a huge fan of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol", and many other novels and artworks produced during the late 19th century. Needless to say, that the very romantic imagery of that period has been something that I have loved forever, and was without a doubt, the inspiration for this piece :heart:
