I think this is going to be my holiday card image this year.
My Dad wanted a Christmas card based on the Ogerita trolley car I just finished. So, I Christmased-up the trolley for him. The card’s here on my Zazzle store, in case anyone else would like one.
We’ve been ice skating a lot this year, so I drew this.

It’s just about summer, so it’s time to draw Christmas illustrations! I’ve been working on some line drawings for a Christmas-themed activity book for Educate.ie, an Irish educational publisher. It may seem odd to draw Christmas pictures this time of year, but if you want everything ready in time for the Christmas season, you have to get things done way ahead of time.
Here are a couple of things I just finished.
Okay, personally, I think the idea of an elf on the shelf is just super-creepy. Creepier than the idea that one old man knows when you’re sleeping and when you’re awake. I mean, it’s an apparently inanimate object that’s spying on you all day and then going off to report on you at night. How is that not creepy?
But, here you go. A perfectly nice, ordinary, non-creepy, elf spy on the shelf.

I think this will be next year’s Christmas card. I was playing with HDR again. Real HDR, not HDR-style. The image didn’t really need HDR, but… eh. I like how it turned out, though I haven’t printed it, so it may need some adjustments still.
I love the spot healing brush tool in Photoshop, because after several days, the snow I used wasn’t perfectly clean. Also, when you set a candy cane in the snow, it starts bleeding red into the snow. So, I had to correct that as well.
And here’s another one.
