These model stocks rocked!
They were perfect! So, we have much adorableness, some hilarity, a few hijinks, and the young man on the right, exasperated with all of the novices and their "decorating".
This is for DamselStock
's Elf contest! fav.me/d5in8vb
This was a huge BLAST
to do! There are several hours' work in this picture, and I am happy at how it came out. I very slightly over-saturated the kids and items to make a warm and inviting scene against that cold purple sky....and to make it look a bit magical. Also assuming there is a bright light source just off of stage front-left. C:So--stock credits!
This pic has the most stock pics I've ever used in one picture before (19... Well, if you count the extra pics I stole a leg from to change Lexi's and Seth's positions...21!), and you guys were epic!! Any of the stock artists here may request a print-quality copy of the picture if they like, providing they use them for their own private use, and don't give or sell the file or sell prints of it. C: Just note my your email addy and I'll send it along.

Thanks to all these photographers and models--they were freaking awesome! And make great elves, too. XD Of course I have drawn various hats and elf shoes on them...can't run around the North Pole without those!
