Snowflake Flies~Xmas Card

With Text


Without Text


I finally got this card done. I had to enlarge my tiny sketch to 12" x 16"as there was so much detail to tackle. It's times like this I wish I had a projector. Maybe next year.

I may tweak this with some pastel pencils and/or some colored pencils OR I may just leave it alone. I see I missed adding the stripes to that little candy cane peeking out of Santa's sack. Gotta fix that!

Just perfect Billie. I love the expression on the cat's face hehehe

You must print these.

I think it turned out great! I also like the way you tilted them slightly in the final.

Thanks, Patty.:) The stripes have been added. I would post another pic but it's too gloomy here right now.

Glad you like it, Krista.:) I really enjoyed your's as well. Especially #1.

I wish I had been able to make the cat look more scared, Jeanette but I committed myself to the expression when I chose to use ink for the eyebrows. I tried adding paint but it just made Snowflake look like he had eyeshadow on.:( I'll know better next time.

Thank you, Diana.:) The 'tilt' made more sense to the composition and the story.
