Seasons Greetings one and all! - Coz nothing says "Seasons greetings" like a giant primeval reindeer being ridden by someone who clearly has a high tolerance for cold weather.

A bit disappointed with this one, but only coz the version in my mind is WAAAAY more impressive. How do you capture an image when in your head you can feel the hot breathe of the animal and the swirling snow on your skin? :D Hopefully I can turn the dial up a bit when I get around to painting it though.

Pencil sketch mixed in photoshop (see [link] for process)

Click on for full size- you wouldn't want to annoy the reindeer!

Wow, this work sure catched my eye. I simply adore the details, like the fur and every little light and shadow. The whole drawing is just so unique, I'd love to have pic like this hanging on my wall. :) Very beautiful.

Rudolf say's 'thanks' - or he would have, but he's an animal of very few words. But I'm sure he thought it at some point. ;)
