Cretaceous Christmas

Description

Have a Cretaceous Christmas and a Jurassic New Year! =D

Um. Right. Yes. Behold my official Christmas card for this year! My friends and family now think I'm weirder than ever, I'm sure.

I have noooooo idea why I wanted to do dinosaurs for Christmas. Maybe it was brought on by drawing all those dragons for Artists at the Ready. Maybe I was feeling prehistoric. Maybe I just like dinosaurs. (Admit it. Dinosaurs are cool.)

All painted directly in Photoshop, because I need to practice digital painting more. Spent way too much time on it, of course (THE TINSEL! ARGH, DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT THE TINSEL!!) And now I think I want to do a lot more of this sort of thing. Man, I forgot how much I love painting, on and off the computer...

The big green dino is a Tyrannosaurus Rex, of course. The speedy little guy is a stenonychosaurus (I think? I need to look up the spelling...) I probably fudged various proportions and details, don't expect total scientific accuracy here.

I never would have guessed this theme for a Christmas card but it's excellent! The tinsel looks super convincing! It would have made my holiday if I found this in my mailbox!
