Krampus, Dec. Image Challenge

So here is the process I went through for "Krampus" (the 2d image challenge for December 2015). Please feel free to comment, give suggestions, whatever, its great to be with so many great artists...

The beginning
 
Here's my favorite part of the process. There's just something about the initiation of an idea. I love to see this in other artists: the sketchy possibilities that are about to unfold. I've always been drawn to the deconstructed image in all its expressive glory.

So the only thing here was I decided to forgo the framing with a porch post and decided to develop on the bottom half of the snowman so it gave some movement to what happened (instead of just the Krampus hovering over a wrecked snowman, putting the bottom half over there suggested movement and story a little better to me).

Okay, I was laughing at myself for the bike, (because what kid is going to be riding a bike outside in these conditions?) but I wanted a feeling like the Krampus was destroying things a child loves in a couple of images and maybe he dragged it from out of the garage. I even considered having christmas presents strewn all over but thought it might muddy down the point, probably not.

My first struggle with the idea of having a tongue...

In the end, I went with the tongue to give it more grit.
