Getting in the mood for the Holidays...


Recommended Posts

I painted Thunderbolt Mountain's Nativity Set for my parents as a Christmas Present. I'm giving it to them on Thanksgiving so they can have it out all this Christmas season.


It took about a month to get this all together, painting wise. I wanted it to be as perfect as I could make it and, at the moment, am rather proud of what I did; though I know I can always use improvement.


My only crit at myself is Mary's face. I did her eyes a few times and I don't know if it was just the angle I took it at, or what, but one of her eyes looks bigger than the other. In person, it's not like that, so I don't know what I was doing. I also tried to get a good picture of Joseph's face, but it seems to be a bit dark.


Thanks for looking! Comments and Crits welcome and appreciated.

I also wanted to take a picture of them altogether. My family's manger doesn't fit in the lightbox so I found one very similar to it online and just photo-shopped them into it. Enjoy!!


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone :) (and yes I know it's early, but I will be out of town so I won't be able to pop on and say it :))

Very nicely done. As for the eye, it appears that the one eyeball curves more than the other, making the dot of the eye show at a different angle than the other. Since we're seeing more of the dot, it looks bigger.


Thank you! :) As for the eye, that makes sense. I really didn't think about that... thank you for clarifying that for me :)
