Christmas Countdown 9/25 – Reindeer


Christmas Countdown 9/25 - Reindeer #reindeer
Last year my reindeer illustration was based on a photo I took of a plastic reindeer lawn decoration. It was less than inspired. A few weeks ago Sartenada, a photo blogger, commented on last year’s reindeer post and include a link to the awesome photos he took of a reindeer race in Finland. Needless to say, a beautiful reference photo makes a huge difference! Thank you Sartenada! And if you really need to see last year’s plastic reindeer illustration here it is. 😂

Paint/draw along with me!

  1. Hello Eileen.

    Wow. Now it looks exactly what it is in nature! Very lovely. Thank You.

    Happy Sunday!

  2. This year’s reindeer is more lifelike and has a bit more character but last year’s is rather cute.

  3. I returned here again. I looked at Your Calendar again and saw for example sleight and snow. Because Finland is Winter Wonderland, I hope that You can get some ideas from my post once more:

    Arctic Circle is one of our favorite place in Finland where we love to visit from time to time.

    This post is is newer from the Arctic Circle:
