Xmas08 Magazine Design by PatrickBrown Xmas08 Magazine Design by PatrickBrown
This is a Magazine cover I created for work.. It'll be a part of the Newspaper I work for (The Examiner Newspaper)..

It was a bit of fun, I didn't spend too much time on it though, I had about 10 other designs that needed to be done!

If you remember part of this is actually the outlines of a colouring competition I had to do for the same paper.. Haha so I just used it for this to save about 2 hours of sketching and inking..

The whole thing was done in about 2 hours..

I'd Love to know what you guys think?

All it took you to do this was JUST two hours.... wow, GREAT JOB!!

I really love the look that the reindeer are giving santa, it looks like they think he's lost it.

It looks like poor Santa's finaly lost his nut over all those presents he has to deliver, not to mention all the smelly kids who squrm around in his lap. (And sometimes pee on him! XP)

Great job with the colors too, and I love the background! :+favlove:

I am really interested to know the tools you use to ink and color your work. Also, have you ever thought about posting a tutorial? (inking/coloring)

Great stuff! Thanks!

Slick shootin for Xmas bud. Luv this one. Nice look for Santa's jaunt before they break into the sky ey. Great comical feel to it as well. With the BG all sparce like that almost seems like they maybe a bit lost Santa looks sure of his location, but the deer... Yeah bud, the bewildered look you nailed, absolutely priceless my man. Awesome job I'd say, great fun image for the holiday. You be all slick like dat!:santa:

I see less textures but your style and colouring still comes through strong.

I love the look that reindeer behind Santa is giving.
