A Christmas Spirit by CalamityChemist A Christmas Spirit by CalamityChemist
…hey guys, do you get the joke in the title? Because he’s a ghost, and…ohoho yeah I’m a word magician.


Here’s Carmori, taking a closer look at one of our quaint Christmas trees. :> Christmas trees are always prettier at night, and of course, there’s no better time for a ghost to enjoy them than after everyone’s gone to bed.
Last year, I did a silly little picture of Cecil painted into a photograph, and I thought that it would be fun to do the same sort of thing for Christmas this year. (I was correct. It was fun).

I wish you all a very merry Christmas, and happy holidays. Cherish your time with family and friends, and be joyful. :heart:

(The photo and artwork are both by me. :>)

I really like how you melded the photo and your art! I'm not a huge photo or digital artist, so it's cool to see either. I really like your drawing style too.

Thanks a ton! I suppose that's like how I'm especially interested in traditional art, because I rarely do it and it's neat to see what other people come up with. I'm glad you like my style!

Oh my gosh, that does NOT look like a photo! Or a picture, it's just... how in the world did you do that?! He just looks so real! <333 I have to tell you, Carmori is just SUCH a beautiful person. <3 I know he's not like, real, but he's so amazing I don't really care! You and Koco simply MUST finish Greybird, please~! <3

Aw, well thank you so much! I'm glad that you think the photo and art mesh well--and that you like Carmori so much. c: I doubt that Greybird will continue as a collaboration between Koco and I, I'm afraid. However, I'm writing Carmori's story/Greybird as my own solo project, now, so it's still going to be completed. <3

By the way, I wanted to make a gift for you, but apparently you already made my idea for a drawing.
Main idea: Can my "Everd " meet your "Carmori " again ? :XD:
