Ink and watercolor pencil on cheap watercolor paper. I digitally darkened him down a bit. Questions:
* Should I apply water to the colored pencil? It tends to smooth and saturate the coors (good) but I have a heck of a lot of blending of colors (and two brands of watercolor pencil, Staedler & Faber-Castell).
* What background? Cut him out and make a collage on some abstract-but-with-perspective print pattern? Figure out how to put in a snowy village? Help!
* Should there be a trail of presents? Where and how to lay those out?
Done more or less for Sketchfest and might become one of our holiday cards.
