Christmas Nutcracker by Nyrak Christmas Nutcracker by Nyrak
This is a digital painting I did for my online store, Koncepts by Karyn. ([link]) I really love nutcrackers -- I'm not sure why, though. I also love Russian Dolls...and things with lots of drawers. Is there a connection...?

Anyway, this particular nutcracker is available on an ornament and other items. Getting into that holiday groove, man. Painted in Photoshop Elements with a Wacom Tablet.

If you're interested, you can see it on the products here: [link]

Hi, I have used this image as part of a university project and I was wondering if there is any way I could buy the royalties to use this image on a pump clip label?

Heya, Karyn! Just came to check out your new stuff.....awesome! I love nutcrackers too. They're so regimented and borderline macabre....but cheerful, all at once! Of to check out the rest of your new goodies.....

Thanks! Now that you mention it, there IS something a little macabre about them...wonder why that is?

thank you SO much! I'm glad you think my colors work. at one time i was terrified of color. in fact, way back when (in school), my focus was inks and charcoal... so I'm always suprised that I put so much color in pieces. and that they turn out decently. :)

Excellent work! Love the coloring and the shading that you put into this; it has a rather realistic look to it because of all of the hue variations in it. It has a lot more depth to it because of that, almost has an oil painting look to it. The job on the hair is especially nice; it has that authentic thick and wispy look to it. The green background also makes the red stand out a lot more becuase they're complementary colors, and also because they're Christmas colors helps, too.

I also like old folkish crafty things like that. They've got a charm for some reason. Can't really explain why.
