MangaHelpers Winter Art Contst - Santa Group Contest: "Stop Stealing Christmas!" by MarmaladeSky, sakura-aneki & revo

We made three different pieces each one of us (rest of references will be added later):
We ended up loving the idea of a Grinch theme, kinda like an alternative Santa, it was very fun and cute to plan, discuss and make all the pieces. :hbunny

It was great to participate with these two. :kissbunny
