Just to celebrate, here's a forest nymph who's ready for the yuletide celebration!
And some of my favorite North American birds, whisky jacks! (Not only do they have a fantastic name, but they are also very friendly and will land on your hand to eat seeds up in the snowy Canadian mountains…)
As for the technique, I'm still trying on Photoshop painting, and for this piece tried to emulate another artist's process. I think I learned a lot! Still got a ways to go, but step by step, right? :)
