Christmas Sleigh card on the way

I have coloured the sleigh in slightly muted colours to reflect a worn old fashioned sleigh. I will separately draw a pile of presents and drop them into the sleigh. Either I will add a snowy background and leave it like this or add the pug to make the piece more humorous, this depends on whether the pug adds to the composition or unbalances it.

Festive Pug

I will be adding reindeer antlers to this little fella, I'm tempted to make him pull a huge sleigh to give the reindeer a rest.

Christmas Updates

A few traditional and animal Christmas cards on the way including a Christmas Yak

Yule Ball Harry Potter-inspired Christmas Card

Here is the completed Harry Potter Christmas Card. I have added the pillars and gargoyles to replicate the Grand Hall to set the scene for the Yule Ball, and gives more of a magical, typically Harry Potter feel to the design.

Santa is Coming Game of Thrones-inspired Christmas Card

'Next Stop, Christmas!' Card

This is my final design for the Next Stop, Christmas! card. I have added a snowy road to the car so it isn't floating in the air. The snow on the christmas tree gives a much more wintery festive feel so this was a nice touch to add.

Here the car still looks plain and the tree just looks like a random tree.

The white background is more contemporary, however as a vintage card I feel the card should be more inviting and old fashioned with a warm Christmassy feel.

It's Settling, Get Doris

I've gone for a more vintage approach on one of the Christmas Card ranges for this year, old 1920s cars with more classic colour palettes.

Update 3

Latest update, next to add some snow

Christmas card update 2

Here is the 2nd update on my illustrated Christmas cards for this year. I've been using a mask to colour individual sections rather than plain layers as masks allow me to completely change the layer colour.
