Hi Peeps! Here's my rendition of "Penguin Elves at the Workshop", complete with a background I made for it.  I used Copics mainly, but also a few Prismacolour pencils on some of the areas I wanted to polish.  Also used was a white gel pen for the sparkle on the hat and the snow outside the window.

This is meant to be a picture to frame rather than a card that I hope gets used as a Christmas decoration every year. Thanks for looking!


  1. Omg...this is absolutley beautiful....and you just made the background? Wow....I can only aspire to be that creative someday. Thanks for sharing! Yes...frame that and use it every year! What size did you make it?

    1. Thank you so much Michelle! I made it a 5 x 7 so that I could buy a pre-made frame from Winners or somewhere. ;-) Thanks so much and big hugs!

  2. This is beautiful!!! I love your splendid coloring, always!

  3. I am sure it will! Would you share which tree, background and window you used to create your scene? I love your images and coloring!!

    1. Thank you so much! I didn't use any images for the background elements. I drew them. ;-) Thanks so much for the high compliments!
