101126 xmas by bara-chan 101126 xmas by bara-chan
this year's christmas cards.
detail: [link]

the outcome of this image surprised me; i wasn't specifically aiming for a colored pencil look (not consciously, at least.) well, it works, i guess! though considering all the time i spent tweaking this, i probably could've just printed the lineart, colored it in pencil, and scanned it a lot faster.

also, i am not responsible for any fights that may arise from sending someone a card marked "naughty." just sayin'.

The illustrations are amazing as always, but what really does it for me is the type. Nice work x

How did you get that cool texture effect? Did you use an actual texture, or just spend 9027352735 hours colouring it with a special brush?
And your Christmas cards are always so cute!

Ridiculously cute! Your processing (aka scanning to digital) is fabulous, a wonderful color penciled look! Mine tend to come out super saturated or washed out regardless of how much unfiltering I try.
