Watched Wave - Christmas Card 2012 by Griatch-art Watched Wave - Christmas Card 2012 by Griatch-art
Watched Wave

You never know who's watching when you're out in the forest.

Update: You can now watch a timelapse video I recorded while painting this. You can find it on YouTube here: [link] (consider watching in HD quality)

My Christmas card for this year. Putting it up early as usual, to get feedback and in case people want to get a card of their own as a DA print. Oh, and an early Merry Christmas!

An insane amount of detail in this one, lots of which might not come across fully in this smaller size. Will be interesting to see how the print fairs. Can you spot all the "watchers"?

Some details:


Done in open-source programs MyPaint and GIMP.

Gorgeous piece, like all your cards, and each year it gets more impressive than the last. The detail and realism here is beautiful, I especially love the snowy trees, all the different types.

Thanks Gaeva! I take way too long time in making these; but it's fun and friends and family are actually starting to send some physical Christmas cards back to me in turn - so the curiosity is turning into a tradition. :)
