That are really tickles my sexy spot. Great texture, just the right amount of colour, interesting shapes, I love it! The other great thing is the legs of the kids.
Even though they are just legs, its really easy to see that they belong to children (shoes, worn jeans etc), something thats quite difficult IMO.

The only comment for me is the shadow around the krampus, its a bit too light for my tastes. Though I can see how going darker could really screw up the composition.

cheers,

nick

Thanks Nick :)

As for the shadow, I normally do them much darker, even to black but I really wanted to experiment with having lighter shadows and using colour more as thats something I want to try and get better at. So I probably went a bit lighter than needed in this one, but it was all part of the experiment/practice.

i read my earlier comment back i noticed a typo that makes the first bit difficult to understand. It should read: That ARCH really tickles my sexy spot. Great texture, just the right amount of colour, interesting shapes, I love it!

yeah the artorder challenges are a goodplace to expiriment.

have a very merry Christmas,

st. Nick

just a tiny thing, the right hand seems to be missing a finger/thumb?
Overall this is kinda neat!
I quite like the story telling of it hehe

Thanks Jeff, good catch on the thumb. I knew it wasn't there but was hoping it would read as hidden behind the palm. I can see that wasn't really working now so have added it into the final version.

Illustrating a scene was something I wanted to work on too, I too often end up doing a character illustration on miniman/no background.
