Santa's Toy Monster Attacks by whysoawesome Santa's Toy Monster Attacks by whysoawesome
Merry Christmas, DA!

For my 2011 Christmas Card, I decided to go with a design involving Santa Claus sicking his toy monster on a naughty kid.

This piece was by far this most ambitious piece I've ever done. I looked back and saw that I posted my first draft of this piece in my DeviantArt scrapbook on June 29th, and I've just completed it finally on November 12th... Dang.

I am really proud of this piece, and I'd love to hear your thoughts.

You can also view a progress video to see how this piece came together over on you tube: [link]

Especially since the monster is comprised of dolls of iconic TV and film characters (a lot of it owned by Disney, Henson, Hasbro, Time-Warner, etc.), as well as timeless games (Twister, Simon Says, Operation, etc.) and toys that trensend generations (Tonka trucks, a Rocking Horse, a Jack-in-the-Box, etc.).
