Here's the second of the designs for the Christmas cards we sent out in 2016. I'm really pleased with my 2016 set! (the other card is in my gallery) In person, the halo behind her head is gilded with Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes. The effect is amazing! Head over to my blog post where I have videos about this plus photos and progress gifs. All the good stuff!
Time Taken: About 10 hours Media: Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 on a Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 References: My own, plus a free glitter texture for the dots and halo-before-gilding. I used Kyle T Webster's Photoshop brushes, mainly Perfect Pencil and Big Soft Spongy.
