Tis the season where flickering lights shine in the dark, the promise of presents bring us secret smiles, and sugarplum faeries dance through our imaginations. The Spirit of Giving descends, reminding us of happiness found in unexpected places.

Digital, Photoshop coloring with a bit of photomanipulation.


Every year I create a present of art for my fans, friends, and family. This year, I'm proud to present my first fully digital piece in the series! May she bring you merriment, spiced wine, and good cheer!

See the complete Christmas Series here! :pointr: [link]



Also, don't forget my holiday drawing going on the rest of this month!

Of all your holiday cards, this one is my favorite. It truly shows your maturation as an artist. The colors are impeccable and enhance not just the artwork itself but the moods that you've created/ It definitely feels like a late Chrsitmas night. Her flowing hair and the highlights of whatever magic light she bestows are extremely effective in adding a sense of magic to it all.

I plan on borrowing from this liberally in my own future projects.

It warms my heart to hear this card is your favorite. I didn't have a lot of time to complete it and still don't quite have confidence in my digital skills, so it's great to know this was a success!

I think you nailed the mood I was going for exactly in your comment. Good luck with your future projects!

Glad the glow comes across! I really wanted to push the contrast in this. Still wishing I could have made this more 'painterly', but I am still learning this whole digital spiel.

O-kaaay, Christmas just got a whole lot creepier.

All joking aside, though, wonderful artwork, as always. ^_^ :clap:

ahah glad you like it despite the creepiness! She was meant to be a sort of 'Ghost of Christmas ---' type of fairy. Those figures from A Christmas Carol always did stand out for me with all their symbol laden imagery.

May I note you about a computer issue question after Christmas?
