Re: WDE Dec 1 - Nutcracker

This would make a great Christmas card Mike! It's so strong and graphic, bold colors and nicely cropped. Really did the ol' nutcracker justice! You created a tiny gem, cute as can be.

Re: WDE Dec 1 - Nutcracker

Well done. I have this ref saved to do. I'm taking my 7 year old granddaughter to see The Nutcracker in a couple of weeks and I thought she would like this for her room. I would make a very nice card I agree.

Re: WDE Dec 1 - Nutcracker

Jolly! Good composition and great balance, strong cheery colors and effective personality to that tooth chomping nutcracker. Very cool!
