Christmas Hippo by RobbVision Christmas Hippo by RobbVision
Here is my Christmas Card for 2009. It's based on my daughter's favorite Christmas song, that she also sings. This was done with India ink and a brush, with digital colors.

I gotta say, I love allof the detail put into this piece. I love the cute little girl, looking up at Santa all innocent. But one thing I don't get is why there is a hippo inside of his bag of toys. ^_^; I'm not trying to bag on anyone's artistic imagination, I was just wondering. But again, great detail, in everything. Nice job!!

marvelous! ^^ the girl is so cute, like every child waiting for Santa. Also the Santa's kind face, red nose, wrinkles and dimples are so characteristic to this good-hearted icon of Christmas ^^ I simply love it
