Painting for my family for Christmas

  I painted my family for Christmas because I had more time and artistic drive than money. Keeping track of the process kept me going and kept me on track. I got it here for you in reverse order.

  I layed in some colors going for a certain look in my mind but not knowing exactly what I wanted.
  I started coloring in between the lines, hoping and aiming to establish a sense of space.
  This is the first of many layout attempts I did on tracing paper.
  I designed each pose individually until i had what I wanted. then I transfered it to the board using graphite.
  I began in my sketchbook, by drawing my family from photos, and a very sloppy layout sketch.

  The project was very rewarding and I was motivated the whole way through because it's something like I've never done, and cuz it made me remember the old homestead and all my loved ones.

this is really awesome, aaron. I like the feel and look of it a lot. I like the nonforced posing peeps. lil nitpick- that tv whiteness distracts me a bit. what's the medium of the piece?
