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 inspiring. A few weeks ago Sartenada, a photo blogger, commented on last year’s reindeer post and included 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!

I even added lights to my illustration. The Reindeer with Holiday Lights is available as an Art Print on Society6.

If you really need to see last year’s plastic reindeer illustration here it is. 😂

Creative Christmas countdown 2017

Creative prompts for Christmas countdown #Christmas #creative #advent

Last year I had a lot of fun drawing and painting every day to countdown until Christmas. I even uploaded some of my illustrations as ornament designs. See them all at www.zazzle.com/eileen_mckenna.

I’ve decided to challenge myself again this year. The prompts are the same – it will be interesting to see how the same prompts can be interpreted differently this year. I hope you’ll follow along, and maybe draw along too! Let me know!
