Family Holiday Card

I created the image for my family holiday card/newsletter.  It’s a pretty dark image, but I tried to bring out some color variations in the background plants.  I added more details to the faces and arms, so you can get a better idea of what we look like.  My brother and I are always featured on my family’s holiday cards, and I think people like to see how we’ve grown up over the years.  The card is 4″x6″ at 350 dpi, which is soooo small but high quality.

The image below includes a lot of the line drawings that went into the final product.  I drew the plants in black to give them a graphic, cartoon quality.  I drew my brother and I in white, so we would stand from the background.  Also, dark lines on people’s faces can often look odd.

The image below is the background layer of the final image.
