6 Christmas Portraits.
Its been a while since my last post...so in the spirit of the holidays and the fact that I'm a sucker for these films round this time of year, I thought I'd shake off some dust with a nice round of portraits. I had planned 12 in this series but I'm also finaling a game right now...crazy.
These started out as an exercise in rendering using a great set of graphite brushes my friend Tony turned me onto. You can find the brushes here. It's interesting to see the evolution move towards a more Struzan"esque" treatment as I went along...damnit I couldn't help myself!
These were created obviously with heavy use of reference from the following films in order in which i did em,
A Christmas Carol 
A Muppet Christmas Carol 
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
A Muppet Family Christmas 
A Christmas Story 
Its a Wonderful Life 
These were great fun and I look forward to doing another round of these at Halloween!
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
