Drawing – Merry Christmas

Christmas Holly by Blackdaisies

“It’s that time of year
When the world falls in love
Every song you hear seems to say
‘Merry Christmas
May your new year’s dreams come true…'”

~ The Christmas Waltz

This year, at least for my personal growth, has been a lot about revisiting my talents and trying to get my brain and my hands to work with my imagination.  I didn’t give myself the time to create original Christmas art, but yesterday I was inspired to get home and revisit an old drawing of mine.

The original drawing was meant to be festive art that I’d want to add to a card in 2012. The end result, now that I look at it again after all this time, just looked… lazy.

So I repainted it as I probably had intended it originally. I don’t know if I’ve gotten any better, talent-wise, but I’m much more patient at least.  The drawing took about 12 hours to complete in Clip Studio Paint. The comparison of cards is below.
