Balloon

So far untitled, digital
I really did have a plan for last week's illustration, and I really did intend to get it in on time, but the illo got complicated and so did the cleaning. I might still get a chance to get it finished up.
This one also got a little complicated, I spent a long time on the background and on the balloon, but I do think it turned out pretty much as I pictured it. I like the way the colors look. I did, however, have to put Santa in green, so I went for more of a Victorian style for him. I'm still a little bit unhappy with the way the presents are, but I couldn't think of anything else to do with them, and it was time to let it go.
Hopefully today, I will also get the blog decorated for Christmas...
