A Merry Christmas Gift by CindysArt A Merry Christmas Gift by CindysArt

A Merry Christmas Gift!

Now it's only a few days left until Christmas Eve. And I love to give all my Deviantart friends and watcher a Christmas gift.
In the beginning of january I will celibrate 5 years here with you. When I joined here I was very new in photomanipulation. Which also appears on my older artwork.
During this 5 years with you I have learned so much. And I have had so fun!

I´ve got to know some of you a little more, and seen all your wonderful art. It has meant a lot to me. Both for my own development and for my welfare and happiness.

I love Deviantart. But without you, there was no Deviantart. You are Deviantart.

I have so much to thank you for, but do not know how to do it. You are all too far away for a hug.

So I love to give you this gift. It shows how I worked with this artwork. Some of you will like it. And for some of you there is nothing new. Nothing that you not already can.
But there are always beginners who need a helping hand

So Merry Christmas to all of you!
And a Happy New Year! :heart:

I tryed to upload a zip file but it was to big. So here are links instead to download the PDF files.


On the last page on the last PDF file you will find links to all stocks used.

Ok.. I checked out all the images's infos and there's need a lot of credits to purchase each image... I can't start it with different images than those of this tutorial, because the values are setted for those specific quality's images... so I think I'll leave this for other times... :(
