This illustration was painted in 2008 to A4 size in photoshop. It could be counted as a christmas scene or a winter scene, but this victorian pig romance illustration was inspired by christmas cards and victorian plays on the television. The scene was also inspired by the two figures often found on tins of ‘Quality street’ sweets, sold in the UK. It was nice to do some research in to victorian costumes and the red army uniform helps to add a focal point. The snow was fun to do, and means less painting. The cartoon pigs add charm and are an unlightly romantic couple. Painted digitally in 2008.
