Animal Christmas Gathering

Happy Chrismas Holidays

I wish all my framily, readers and good friends a very nice christmas holiday.

Animal Gathering concept

The idea behind this piece came to me as i thought about the animals in the woods near where I live.  As it has been snowing quite a lot recently i imagined how animals could theoreticaly live in peace together at christmas an enjoy each others company. I’m am not a religious person, and do not see Christmas as a religious fest. It is more a day where everyone can sit down together and have a nice time. All worries put aside.

I started this image with a sketch, and figured the out the best way to represent the warm feeling chrismas represents.

Creation

The image was made at a resolution of 3200x3200px at 300 dpi. The process took around 4hours. 1h30 for the concept and searching for the stockimages. 2h30 for the execution in Photoshop cs4
