I hope everyone liked the nautical themed Santa & Mrs Claus. The beach set was really fun, too.
Today I have a woodland themed Santa outfit. I tend to scribble notes on my sketches. This set had "BLUE" scribbled all over the place. Is this set blue?
And I'm very happy about that.
Sometimes plans change and I really just didn't feel like blue here. I really liked the rich woodland colors. And that owl! I drew that in Illustrator primarily with the pencil tool. That's really become my favorite tool in Illustrator, especially on the Surface. It feels like regular old pencil & paper and I love it. The stitching looks more complicated than it is. I'd really like to do a series of tutorials based on the whole Santa set. I used a lot of tricks & shortcuts that could be useful to other Illustrator users.
If you're looking for the dolls, you can grab them here.
