Red Eye Santa Claus

  • Skull with a beard and Santa Clause hat
  • Skull with a Santa hat on a disc golf disc

This vector illustration was commissioned by Red Eye Disc Golf out of Missouri, USA. The request was to have a Santa character as a skeleton. The initial use of the image was to be foil stamped onto golf discs.

I started with a quick sketch in Photoshop to get a general idea of the primary shapes of the skull itself and the flow of the beard. The remainder of the work was done in Illustrator using the pen and brush tools. I start by blocking in the dark areas and then pulling the shapes out with white, and then cut back in with black. Due to the strict requirements of the medium, minimal black space was allowed.
