New Christmas cards designs.

I have been beavering away on these two designs of late, there are two major licensing fayres coming up (one in London and one in NYC) so getting my skates on to create a new collection.
After these I'm planning some snowy mute swans and perhaps a lovely barn owl!

Firecrest Licensing design - colouring process

Hello, just thought I would post my latest offering, a new licensing design of a firecrest bird, sat on some magnolia. I really enjoyed this illustration and decided I would take screen shots of it as it progressed, so you can see my working process. 

All of my illustrations start off as a pencil sketch, using a hb pencil on some nice textured paper (not too textured) and then are scanned into photoshop and cleaned up, before I start adding layers of varying opacity. Soooo many layers!!!
