Any Christmas mood out there yet?
I realized that when I´ll post my blog post for December the Christmas will be over so there will just be one Santa from me.
I love stamp images with Santa. And I love when he´s not perfectly drawn, when he´s a bit ugly and not so cute. I buy many stamps second-hand, so I don´t know where this little guy comes from.
It doesn´t matter if your not happy with the sketch you made with C1. It´s just a guide for you, and you don´t need to fill in right on top of those bricks, when you are finish with the whole fireplace there will be no C1 left.
But I started with Y17 on the edges of his legs. On top on that I went in with W3 - W5 - W7.
To darkened the jacket I went in with T5.
The same is for the belt Y17 - C3 - C5 - C7.
The red on the hood is the same as in the jacket.
The skin color is: E000 - BV20 - E50.
I darkened the top with W3 so there will be a glow from the spruce branches.
The color for the branches is YG61 - YG63 - YG67.
Floor: E70 - E71 - E74
And I put in a line round the opening of the fireplace, to highlight it. But it´s not an even line, it´s broken, the light will not hit the edge even.
I wish I have inspired some of you to color a Santa today. And I wish you all a Merry Christmas as I will be back just before New Year.
