A possible seasonal greeting card design. Still trying to get used to the current system.

Yup, an update. The next update should be the finished version.

Yup, update two. This should be the finished version. So, crits or comments anyone.

Thank you, Diego.

This is the version I sent to the printer. *sigh* They intensified the shading and highlights on the bear, which made everything else way too dark and muddy. They even botched the colors of their template. I will be talking to them tomorrow.

Charming...! Polar bears need all the love they can get...

Candle looks good to me; though if you think it's looking blurry or anything, one trick I often pull is Filter -> Sharpen -> Smarten Sharpen, use the default settings but set Sharpness to 50% and Radius to 7.0

Thank you kindly. Yes they do.

Thanks for that reminder. I shuffled a couple of layers and dropped the "I need to be awake for this" textural highlights onto the bear's nose.

Thank you very much, Cris.

I am looking forward to getting the candle right.

The digital set-up still feels weird; which may be the biggest reason I'm trying different techniques.

I got to thinking of some of the things that polar bears get up to as they migrate through Churchill. This is based off of an old doodle.

Yes, for example, [link]

Thank you, Steve. If we don't rejoice the rest of creation will do so without us.

Thank you, also, for the fave.
