Snow Dancing by jackieocean Snow Dancing by jackieocean
I designed this picture to use for my 2005 holiday card that I'll be sending out to people. This picture was a bit of an experiment. All of the lineart was inked on watercolor paper and some simple ink washes were then applied. The trees in the background were painted on a separate sheet of paper with ink. The snow was on a separate sheet of paper as well. They were all scanned in, edited, and pieced together in Photoshop before I added the color with my tablet. I think the end result works pretty well. I was going for kind of an older illustration type of feel. It was especially nice to work with a simple color scheme after working on a couple of color intense pictures.

For those who are curious, this was my holiday card illustration for last December.

This image was completed in November of 2005.

Full view is highly recommended!

Prints are now available!
