I wanted illustrate a scene of one of my favorite winter activities. I'm personally not that great at it, being from California, but I wanted to draw something fun and cute.
Around Christmas time I really wanted to illustrate a Christmas scene with lights and a happy homey house.
I've been trying to add some diversity in my portfolio and within this series of holiday themed illustrations I especially didn't want to draw just Christmas scenes.
I thought I would include a bit of my process here. Here are my thumbnail sketches that I scanned, and then printed to size, and then inked the lineart over the sketch. If I have hand drawn type in my artwork I usually draw it separately and add it as a separate layer. (I kinda forgot about that in my first one and it made it a little harder, and so I'm not super happy with it.)
