Elevation by FireFiriel Elevation by FireFiriel
My Christmas card picture for this year. It's my first approach to an idea I've had for years, and I want to do more with. I also entered it in a magazine contest, but it didn't win. I'm not even sure it got properly submitted, since something was wrong with the email address they said to send it to. :shrug:

Since I did this all early for the contest, I was thinking, "Okay now that my Card image is out of the way, I'll have plenty of time for Christmas fanart!" But then, I had to decide to do a coloring book. Of the whole. liturgical. calender. :dead: So yeah.

I can't believe it's already so close to Christmas! Merry merry! :xmas:

this has a lot of good shapes in it. I mean the symmetry is on point and the framing is cool, but even little touches like those twisting bits at the base of the cradle are cool too. Good job.

Thank you! As long as no money will be made from it and you're not distributing copies, you can use it. (And if there's opportunity, let folks know who did it! ~_^ )

Sad. . . I actually entered something into a Christmas Contest too, but I realized later that my email never went through >_< It was a sad realization...

Ahh, but this is a really pretty picture in its own right. I really love the crown of stars!! As most of the others seemingly did as well from the comments, haha :) The other details I really like is the texture of the manger/stable, and the depth of the faces. The image itself is just really well composed :) Nice work!!

And someone else I know had trouble with the same contest I tried to enter! Seems they didn't go well in general. :ohnoes:

Thank you! Since I realized water ripples go in a curved grid I've been seeing them in more and more things, and I think they might be part of the fabric of the universe, so it seemed fitting. :glomp:
