Custom Holiday Card - Auction - Ends in 1 day 9 hours

I apologize for not posting this here until now, but there's still time left for this auction!


Want a fully customized holiday card to send to your friends and family, but lack a design? This auction is for a hand drawn holiday card image featuring your personal characters so you can spread the holiday cheer in a unique way.

The opening bid amount is for a single character against a winter wonderland background drawn in Corel Painter. Natural scenes only please (no buildings or machinery), but you are free to make suggestions on what you would like (holiday decorations, winter, trees, ice). If the bidding reaches $120 you may add a secondary character. If the bidding reaches $250 you may add a third character to the image. The maximum character allowance for this auction is 3 characters.

You will receive a preliminary sketch of your image for your approval. You get three free change phases in sketch form (this is per revision round, so if you have multiple changes to make in the first round, this doesn't count as all three changes, for example. I will send it back to you a maximum of three times and you can make as many changes as you want within that turn). Additional changes past this will cost $20 each. Once the image is colored, you can make minor changes (such as minor marking/coloration changes, forgotten accessories, etc, but no major changes such as pose will be accepted, as it is the buyer's responsibility to approve this in sketch form).

You will be emailed the high resolution digital image which is 5"x7" at 300 DPI. This auction is for the image service only. Printing duties are for the buyer to handle, but I can suggest Tugrik at Monoceros Media ( for high quality printing services if you want an excellent paper selection at competitive prices.

Turnaround is approximately 1 month, so you can have adequate time to have your cards printed and mailed before the holidays.

I draw clean art only, please refer to my FA page for more samples of my work. If you have any questions please direct them to and I will get back to you promptly.

Thanks for looking!
