Original Post: This project kind of grew and grew and then gave me an idea for a picture book.
I had to finish it off in Photoshop but most of it was done in Procreate using Liz's great texture brushes.
After this year I'm looking forward to Christmas!
Later Post: I thought some people might like to see how I developed this project further.
I extended and refined it with the intention of displaying it on my website as a sample of my illustration work.
This version, with the more icing-like decoration, is what I had in mind originally.
