Wrapping paper

Hey there!

I drew my own wrapping paper last year so, I thought I would do it again this year. Here's what I did, all digital, all on the cintiq.

Maybe this will become a tradition?

Anatomy of a Christmas Card... light on the anatomy.

So, I finally finished this year's Christmas Card. I had a pretty clear idea in my head what I wanted to do this year so, it didn't take me very many thumbnails to get what I wanted.

I just did pencils this year. Not sure why. Wish I made the drawing a little looser, feels kinda tight. I wish I could do looser drawings, nail what I'm going after quickly.

And, the final image. I originally went for more traditional colours on the girl, my idea being that this was kind of a RED RIDING HOOD situation (at least, that's what inspired the card.) Red Jacket and flesh colour ended up being pretty boring, so I went with a greyed down purple, suddenly I was happier.
