Guess who's house they are in sneaking around, dropping off a little something for the owner? You know what they say when the cat is away, right?
Boy, I thought this would never come together and it has still changed quite a bit from how I originally saw it in my mind but it's the best I can do. This work is nothing epic or majestic but man it was hard to do, believe it or not and took soooo much time. I thought I would never finish! XD I wasn't out to create a jaw dropping, awe inspiring work but instead, a warm, cozy home. To capture the magic and charm, cheer and colors of the holiday spirit filled with love and happiness. I wanted to create the Christmas fun and warm fuzzies with lots of light and joy. I am generally please over all with how it turned out. I hope your Christmases were wonderful and I wish you all a wonderful new year in 2018. Happy New Years btw!
This is a dedication to my watchers....
For a fun before and after >>>>>

Thank you so very much! I've been away, on hiatus for over a year now and just coming back and trying to get a feel for this new world of Eclipse. I'm not very good at it so far. Your words humble me and I am truly honored by your kindness and encouragement. :heart:
Wow, personally I love this unique interpretaion on Christmas. I'm no Christian or anything but I never connect an elf with mouses, with this unique curious expression and costume. The vision is amazing, not to mention the technique, it's so hard to find a flaw in this work, great job!
If there's something to improve, I wonder though if the composition is rather bit 'heavy' on the left with the crowded Christmas tree, but on the on the other hand the tree being shown up giving the merry sense of the celebration, so I suppose all is good, haha..
As a hobbyist photomanipulator I often find it hard to give a crowded/festive impression without being distracting, but I see in this piece that you did it awesomely, I must learn from your works. Keep on creating and merry Christmas!^^
