Silent Night

With the holiday season coming up quickly, I decided to make a Christmas card.

Tried to capture the quietness of the woods at night, and originally was going to have a rabbit in the illustration, until I found out they only come out around dusk and dawn, so I used a fox instead.

You were so right Alison!  It was a little counter intuitive ( and scary!) to cover everything up with ink!

Then I scanned my dried piece and brought into Photoshop to make a few refinements and to add the shadows of the trees which didn't show up on the original. Below is the untouched and wet version.
