Santa Claus is coming to town....
I'm 99% sure i made his list ,hope you made his list too ;)

I always wanted to do a classic looking St Nicholas Santa.
I hope i achieved that :)

Completed on 11x8'5 vellum board worked with prisma colored pencils,
i used some pastels for the background with a painting brush so i can get
those little sparkles and went over them in the end with a tiny brush and white acrylic and used some for the hair strands as well .

MERRY CHRISTMAS  and Happy Holidays to everyone

feel free to visit my website for prints at

Very cool Santa. Love the contrast between the sharp edged leaves and his soft skin.

Hello and Merry Christmas! You did a good job of making him look "classic"-I can tell he's your own version but he does have a classic feel to him.
