The Little Star | Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone!
This is for a local Church book cover. I had so much fun painting it!! I used many paintings from the old art masters as inspiration and tried to recreate the traditional effect in Photoshop using oily brushes and a thick canvas texture. You may recognize some styles and techniques that I used; colours, composition, hand gestures, lighting etc. I was very tempted to add a penguin in the background (because you know, penguins,) but I decided to go with a subtle drawing on the walls. If you can find it, comment below! Anyways, I hope you enjoy!
Have a great Christmas and a Stupendous New year, guys!
