"weihnachtsengel" - christmas angel this year i really really wanted to do a christmas card for my friends again, but this time it was particularly difficult for me: i hadn't drawn in AGES and was quite out of practice (which i am, anyways... but now even more;-) ), my mood was absolutely down with the knowledge that i just suck drawing, and i was sick... but still, i stuck in there and kept going up to 5am this morning. today i added some little bits of shading and details and here it is: this year's christmas card... so, merry christmas:)!!! in the middle of the drawing process i figured that one of her arms is WAY bigger and longer than the other... but i was also just WAY to tired by then to start all over again;-) that's the curse of the last-second-makers;-) forgive me for that. :) the christmas angel was inspired by the christmas works of j.s.bach. every year i go and listen to it somewhere. this year i wanted to realize the idea i've been having for so long of drawing while listening to a concert, but in the end didn't dare doing so with all these people around me. so i kept the pictures saved in my head for this project. the picture is all left naturally, i only added the frame and the writing to it with a computer program. "frohe festtage" means happy holiday season. gimp2, watercolours, coloured pencils, glitter and glittermarkers (2008)
