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 :o 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!!
