For the last few years, I've tried to draw an original Christmas card to send to family and friends. Most recently, I've depicted myself, wife and daughter as characters from "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and "Santa Claus is Coming To Town". This year's card features a joke about our lovable (but exceedingly stupid) basset hound, Scout.
I did digital pencils, inks and colors all in Manga Studio 5. This was brought into Photoshop for laying in the logo and placement on the card template.
I was really happy with this background (below). I really wanted to capture the feel of a Chuck Jones background.
Closeup of Scout, the basset. Getting this right took several tries, erasing it all and trying again.
Really LOVE inking with Manga Studio's vector brushes.
More background eye candy :)
