Happy Easter!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although the people of Yscariot’s world do not observe the same holidays and religions than those in the real world, it doesn’t stop them from sending you all special greetings to fit the occasion.

You can use them to greet your friends and family, and even if you don’t observe the days, you can share it for good fun!

Major THANK YOU, once again, to the illustrator, Gladys, who created the images for the occasion. In her country, the Philippines, Easter is observed as a major holiday.

In appreciation for all that my mother, and grandmother especially, has done for me and my family, I dedicate this art, illustrated by fellow team member and artist, Gladys Betiles, to my mother. You can also spread the love, too! Whether it’s your mother’s birthday, Mother’s Day, or any day… send this image to your mother, or simply give her a hug.

I thank my mother for her support of my story! It is a long process, but I am getting there! To see the biography of Yscariot’s mother, Maryam, simply click here or visit the character glossary!

No matter what you celebrate, or what lifestyle you practice, X’el Studios would like to take this time in wishing everyone in the world the very best this season. Every day should be about family and friends, but it’s the coldest season that usually bring the warmest memories.
