The Snow Child's Wish by nikohl The Snow Child's Wish by nikohl
It seemed like just yesterday the snow stork was delivering their son. How funny that even in the land of eternal winter children cannot wait to grow up.

There are currently a lot of little snowmen decorations up in my house. I blame them.

This little image entered my mind and just did not want to leave. So I decided it was the perfect opportunity to use my color pencils. I have a bunch of them but I just don't use them (and so of course when I do try to use them it normally ends in disaster because I don't know what I'm doing). This came out better than I thought it would, although I'm a little iffy on the lights in the background.

I don't mind any critiques/tips/suggestions in regard to the coloring. I want to get better with my color pencils, I do, I do!

Prismacolor pencils. Mechanical Pencil. White gel pen. A bit of digital editing because it didn't scan as nicely as I'd hoped.
Approximately 6x8 inches. I've no idea how long it took.

Glad it could make you laugh! And that's definitely not the first time I've been told it'd make a good card.
