Santa and Reindeer - Critique please
This scene is from a Christmas story I'm working on.
Santa and the reindeer lit up the sleigh with Christmas tree lights. They are wearing sunglasses because the sleigh is so bright. How can I make the sleigh look brighter like it's shining? Any other ideas? Thanks.
@judy-elizabeth-wilson I think if you want it to look like it's shining you need to add a halo of light around that sleigh!
Also, that wasn't the topic of your post but it's personally kinda distracting me how all the reindeer have the same face It's really nice that they all have their different accessories, very cute, but if at least a few of them had their heads in a different angle (like profile, or looking up, looking behind them) it would do a lot to add variety in there!
@NessIllustration Cool thanks Ness. So a halo of light around the sleigh and work on the expressions. I didn't realize the expressions were so similar until you mentioned it. I really appreciate your ideas here. Thanks so much!
The art is almost finished for a cute Christmas story I wrote. I kept chipping away all year and the past couple of months really focused on finishing. This page was one of the very first I sketched back in 2015 and it got me a picture book commission that raised funds for cancer research and I put this project on hold. Looking forward to finish this now though and move on however... if anyone sees some details to improve please tell me! I always love critique.
@NessIllustration Ness thanks for your comment way back in January. I made one of the reindeer look back to the other reindeer.
@Judy-Elizabeth-Wilson That is super cute!!
