Santa Speedster

I mentioned this some time ago back when Tim challenged us to do winter-specific vehicles last year.  I drew this for winter 2010 and never colored it until this week.  I was ski-and-tracked out in 2011 since I did the Arctic Breeze and SNOWJET sketches.  This has some influences from 30's Auburns / Cords, and the traditional Coca-Cola Santa- now with vintage goggles.  Merry Christmas!

Ad Critique

I'm not saying its anywhere near exact, but it's more similar than I'd like it to be.  I've been talking with co-workers about road the presence classic Lincolns and Cadillacs have. This would appear to be incomparable.

Where's November!?

Here's Tiiu Kuik for Vogue Mexico.  The colors and patterns on her traditional alpaca hat made painting this a lot of fun.  While the colors were important to match, I payed close attention to quickly and efficiently represent the patterns on it, being careful not to spend too much time on them.  The piece took a little over 2.5 hrs, but I'm ok with that because of the detail involved.  I'll likely retouch the hair.
