Santas 8 & 9

It was a busy weekend! On top of everything else going on, we decided to move all of my art stuff, which has been slowly taking over the living space in our family room. While it is a good size room, it feels tiny with all of us plus the dogs and all my junk packed in it.....so we spent the entire sunday moving and setting up a studio in a spare room....which housed most of my supplies anyways...more on this later, with pictures!
And today was a snow day.....a full house! Here are my santas from the past 2 days....both dobe in my new studio YAY!!
#8 ~ acrylics on paper
#9 ~ copics, pastel pencils

Santa #4 and company

I sketched the icons quickly on graph paper and photocopied them, colored with copics, cut them out and glued them down....voila! Quick and fun. I like the rough pencil lines and grid lines peaking through here and there. Then I played around with the background color in photoshop. The white background is the original.

Slowly acquiring some ps skills!! Taking a course in January, watching lots of tutorials right now.
