He feels very wise to me, unlike the Coca-Cola Santa, where I feel his is just jolly, and lacks a brain cell or two. xD

No offence Santa, please still come and visit me on Christmas! ;) xDD Haha. :)

What inspired you to paint Santa in his original colours? :)

I have always enjoyed seeing alternative versions of Santa: gold, blue, white, rustic. While doing research I discovered the green (my favorite) and it was inevitable that I would make a version of my own. .

Ravyre Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh wow, I have never seen a Santa in any of those other colours, only in either Green or Red.
I will definitely have to look up the other version and see how they make him look! :la:

I have seen gold, white, blue, brown and various colors of red. The green one was modeled after Father Christmas of whom I have seen with a green fur trimmed cape or cloak.
Thank you!!

I love the colours you've used on him. He's very warm and very ancient feeling. Great use of pattern on the coat! :heart:
Merry Christmas! :xmas:

"Ancient" is a great word to describe how I wanted him to look. I had just told someone else how I was going for a mixture of wizardly and saintliness. Thank you!!
Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!
