(original published colours were done by Peter Steigerfeld)

I've only ever done ONE christmas themed picture before now and that was the very first thing I ever coloured.. ever! 13 years ago. It's about time I did another one, so when I saw Tom's inks on this one, I just grabbed it!

I got rid of the big moon in the inks because I wanted to try out the aurora stuff, which is done with "Flame Painter" www.escapemotions.com/experime… and then run through various filters and layer modes. I added the Santa and sleigh from a clipart found on google images.

Btw - Here's the first thing I ever coloured... ever! -->

christmas elf by SeanE

I can't tell what is more appealing! The saucy sweetie with the mistletoe or that beautifully portrayed sky! I adore the bells around the thigh and the hair is totally professionally done! <3 You should be very proud of this piece! It looks so sweet, sexy, and just pleasing to the eye! <3

Nothing says happy holidays like skimpy clothes and an awesome rack. Ah if only this really was Santa. I assure you Christmas spirit would be through the roof.

Btw, congratulations on your heard earned progress. It's so AWESOME to see people's very first images and how far they've come. You've grown an AMAZING amount since you first started. It's hard to believe it's not been at least 20 years since you did that first Christmas elf. Amazing progress, Sean! 

And OMG that flame painter! Incredible! Thanks so much for the link, you rock my friend!

Lovely work, Sean! 

One word of critique - I don't know if it's just my screen or not, but from here it looks like under her far eye from the corner of the eye to the nose is a hard pink line that's detracting from the beauty of her face. Also there is a stark highlight above that eye that doesn't seam to match the lighting. 

All in all a beautiful image! I love that you added the aurora borealis! A very cool touch!

Love how the chimney is used to create the scene instead of just having her posing - also, that smile is killer.
