Merry Bookmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

First I want to say thank you for this awesome and very cute class. I had a lot of fun learning to draw this Christmas cuties (though drawing makes me super nervous lol). Your tips and tricks were very helpful and it was interesting going through the process and eventually refining my work to its end result.

I had a few more sketches before I settled on this snowman/woman. I liked the big dark eyes, the stick brows, and the cute little mittens that I created for her.

Instead of using watercolors I chose to use the painting tools with my drawing tablet  in Adobe Photoshop. I don't use my drawing tablet much sooooo it's a bit rusty. Lol. I tried and I actually think it came out better that what I expected it to.

Also, I added a book tree because I actually made this into a Christmas card for someone's book club so why not add a book tree.

Again thank you for this really fun class Yasmina. It helped me take another step outside my comfort zone. Hopefully next time I'll use watercolors!
