“The Star Of Christmas”
Updated… I didnt like the original eyes… so I re-modeled them :stuck_out_tongue:

I guess #176 will be my first challenge entry…


I decided to take a different direction with the ornament. I have changed the entry from a dark shot to a bright and more realisitic composition.

Open: I had to use Photoshop to modify the image as well as place some of the needles on top of the ornament and add some shadows on the Santa for realism.

I guess I should give this piece a title. Lets see, since it is Christmas and we put ornaments on trees every year… Ha, got it!
