Good luck and an early merry christmas/hannukah/whatever you celebrate to everyone!
Here's an early WiP and it looks like wrapping has decided to screw me over again. Atleast it's not as bad as those izual wings :D
I was wondering if I should have instead gone for a christmas-themed Doodads0.blp, turning all the crates into presents or something. If anyone likes the idea, go ahead :p

I'm in! and I'll probably post something today since we only celebrate on the 25th and everybody is going apeshit with preparation anyway. :D

Loving the snow themed idea for buildings @Blood Raven ! Might give it a try myself. :)

I won't win much on creativity :S going for KRAMPUS!

edit change of plan... but still krampus! - I'll go with the malfurion one

@Just_Spectating odd choice of models. Looking forward for the result :]

@Mr.Goblin really goofy for me, the smile just reeks of weird looking spikes. Maybe it is the wrap at fault here. Though I love how the Krampus comes along.

@Wisdom, a little more shading and contrast would be good. Otherwise, good start.

@aeman almost has that hint of Christmas decorations. Go for it :]
@Mr.Goblin that stag has both the creepiest and goofiest grin i've seen this year xD

Yeah, the warp isn't really friendly with this one, I'm still tweaking it and trying to make it work.... hehe but thanks for your comments! :D

i withdraw. i'm not feeling for it.
Well, there's a start to everything. So, no worries. You just need to work more on it :]

How about the rest of you guys? @Just_Spectating @Sclammerz @Apheraz Lucent @Mr.Goblin (it's extended until the 7th of January ;-) )

Sweet! erm, it shall be done before the week-end hits us. I doubt I'll manage to finish Malfurion and his dear though, so I'll probably only sudmit good old Mal. will see!

Absolutely no clue will I get to finish it by deadline, but I plan on finishing it anyways.
So, first WIP on face and candy cane staff :)

I need to find a more effective way for fuzzy white thingy on the cape.
Also, curly hair can't work at all on any of female skins, which is super frustrating.
