Merry Christmas from the Ecks!

We usually just put out a picture-type Christmas card every year, but at the end of November, I had a fun idea and created a quick sketch of our family as snowmen.  Shelley liked the idea so I sat down to draw the real thing and thought how weird it would be for a family of snowmen to live in Houston.  We live on the Galveston side of the city, so I switched snow for sand and put us on the beach.  

Below you can see all 3 steps of the process from the first sketch, to the black & white illustration, to the finished product.  I did all the pencils and inking by hand but the coloring was all done in Photoshop using my Wacom tablet.  

From the Texas Gulf Coast to your family, Merry Christmas!
