Jolly fucking holidays.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

The Krampus taking the bad children with him.

Great collab. I'd love to join, but I couldn't think of anything yet.

Ah fuck sake. Don't forget the important bit:

If you were left off the list, it's because I'm incompetent.

I'm doing the main image, which is an NG nativity scene.
I was planning to show a WIP yesterday, but I got bogged down with researching medal implementation (which is surprisingly and refreshingly easy) and I'm still doing line-art.

What kind of snow are you going for? Have you got an example from another illustrator's work?
Your pic looks great, btw. I'm glad you picked up the Jack Frost idea.

Ohh, powder snow~
...the kind that sparkles when you kick at it. It's so beautiful.. I wish it snowed where I live. Wonderful piece, by the way!

K, I'm glad I asked, because I thought you meant snow flakes!

I remember referring to that pic when I was doing a Friday Flood thumbnail. I don't what kind of textures you're going for the whole painting, but you could try tinkering with some scatter brushes, starting from a layer of greyish blue then working your way up towards somewhere off-white.
Or you could go more subtle, with some softer cloud brushes. You could get some hints off of this cover.

Looks great so far.

I'll get started on mine soon. Might have a wip pic posted tonight.

Looks great with snow, but I agree with lowering the opacity near his ankle to make it look powdery.

Here's my WIP. Lots of things are subject to change.

Haroo! Thought I'd post up my progress on my picture! Just about ready to start coloring this beast, although I think I might redo some parts of him to make him look fuzzier, what do you guys think?

It's looking good so far, but keep note of the perspective. His feet are edge-on with the audience. Otherwise, I'm loving the character design and color scheme you have set up; very soft.

Hmm, very good point on his feet, thanks!

Deadline's 30th of November, so that they can be crammed into a Flash submission.
Hope you decide to join.

I think that one's already taken.

Damn, you're right. I'll have to think of something else. I'll post an Idea if I got one!

For sure.
I'm not doing checkpoints for fun, I want to make sure that the people who sign up are going to contribute, and not taking up spots.

You've done a sketch, though, so I wouldn't sweat about it.
