Santa Claus Illustration Client: Self-Promo
This illustration was created in Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter with a Wacom Tablet.
The final Santa Illustration.
Process: Beginning from top-left and ending at bottom-right, this shows the progression of the illustration.
As aforementioned, I originally created this for a stock art site. My plan was to use the mileage of the initial illustration to version out multiple illustrations that might appeal to more people looking for stock art. This version added Santa's List to the illustration.
Another version of the illustration, this time holding a sign. The idea would be to leave the sign blank (omit the "HO!HO!HO!"). Appealing to the stock art buying market in the sense they could put their own messaging on the sign to suit their specific needs.
