After meeting and attending an incredibly inspiring lecture by Shane Prigmore, participating in his design challenge and reading (for the first time) "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens' I decided to go a few steps further and design several of Dickens' characters.
Ghost of Christmas Present - Boisterous, large and happy
Bob Cratchit & Tiny Tim - Wanted to show a tender moment between the caring, loving father and his sickly, but happily innocent son.
Scrooge- Stone cold, icy
Ghost of Christmas Past - flowing, childlike, pure
Mrs. Cratchit - worrisome, motherly,
Ghost of Jacob Marley - Greedy, weighed down, held back by his chains
