Final Touch- Initially i wanted to make this elf look like he was concentrating hard on putting the last piece of a toy together, but i like the magical side of just adding that final touch* I'm not quite sure why, but I've started paying attention to light sources and shadows lately. I'm liking what its adding to my work... atmospheric.
The final project before Christmas was to come up with a set of illustrations for one of 6 or 7 books. I went with, 'The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe'. the title pretty much sums up what the books about. I did 6 oil painting styley digital images, this isn't my fav', but i only have time to post one (slow laptop) and this one seems most appropriate for the festive season!
