Here is an Xmas card that I illustrated for personal use... I never know what to get people for Christmas so this year I thought something I'd made and put effort into might be a better gift! I've never drawn polar bears before, I kind of wanted to give the right one their distinctive black snout but then it made his face look muddy for some reason. Oh well.
I love the eerie green colour you can see reflected in snow beneath the Northern Lights. :) The little village by the lake in the distance was originally a city, but it looked like a big blotchy mess! I can't paint the inorganic detail of buildings very skilfully, so the whole lot got painted out and I had to start again. I think the village was more fitting for the tone of the picture in the end. :)
Lastly, triggerplug.com composed a nice showcase article about my artwork, featuring some art that I don't think is on my actual website, so if you want to see a few more pieces by me, please check it out. No one has written a review of my work before, it's kind of surreal to read about yourself from the point of view of a stranger, but it's interesting too. You can read the article here. Thank you very much triggerplug!
I hope you have a good Christmas even if you don't celebrate it. :)
