Description This digital illustration is painted in Photoshop to A4 size. It was painted in October 2012 and is for the Christmas season. The illustration depicts a Lion, dressed as Santa delivering presents. He is pictured creeping silently out of a boy cub's bedroom, leaving behind presents. The Lion cub is fast asleep and is busy dreaming about Christmas. A Christmas stocking is on the end of the bed, and the room is decorated with Christmas lights. The perspective in the image is deliberately distorted and does not matter for this cartoonish image. The main light source is from the open door in the bedroom. The lighting is not designed to be realistic but cheated so that the viewer can see the Lion cub and presents clearly.
Martin Davey, Southampton Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Hi,
Welcome to my gallery, which contains largely illustrations for the childrens market.
I like my paintings to be as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Detail and colour are important, combined with a simple visual message for any one to enjoy.
The artwork is created entirely in the art program, photoshop, from the rough drawing up to the finished work,using a drawing tablet.
My career has largely been based in creating artwork for the animation industry.
