Here he is, your friendly neighborhood Krampus critter... well, maybe not so friendly. When he's finished, I'll be submitting him as a candidate for inclusion to the Best of ArtOrder book challenge. The book is being organized and published via Senior Art Director, Jon Schindehette, of Dungeons and Dragons - Wizards of the Coast. I hope Krampus makes a positive and lasting impression on the powers that be. *crosses fingers*
This painting is also being submitted to the Spectrum fantasy art annual jury, which I hope will also bring good results. Spectrum is an art annual that provides a showcase for contemporary fantasy artists. I would be ever so happy if I could see Krampus on the pages of either of these books. I have such a fire and drive for this stuff, and I LOVE coming up with creatures! I'm just hoping someone will give me that break I need to prove my mettle. So for now, I'll be waiting with bated breath. :)
Now it's on to my ArtOrder Assassin demon-girl and Beautiful Grim projects.
