Welcome to 2018!
It seems like every November/December I tend to start to draw images of Santa Claus. Oh, I could blame it on the season, but I honestly like drawing the old guy. This years effort was something different. I haven't had the inclination to draw as of late (gasp!) and this was the first drawing that I have done since mid July. Normally when I draw with an ink pen, Pigma Micron to be specific, I normally just go for it. The marks I make on the page are simply there for all eternity or until I become frustrated and throw the paper away. On this one, I broke from reckless abandon and sketched out the image with pencil.
I have also been playing with a 3d application lately called Daz3D and I have created a image of Old St. Nick getting ready for his big night.
