I've finally finished the second Christmas card, it wasn't working at all and I strugled a lot trying to get something acceptable from that bag of gifts that used to be in the lower corner, then Angeles told me that maybe getting rid of the bag and painting the gifts would be better and I think she was right! Of course I had to photoshop it to compose the final piece, maybe I'll post the wip later, when I have time to gather the images.
My only concern about it is that now the gift boxes have much more weight than the deer but that's fine because they are gifts! and they must be colorful and tacky and full of patterns! ok, I added a blue thing to the deer face to redirect the eye back to the upper corner and maintain the eyeflow, just so you know I'm still thinking straight.

Oh, and this is the sketch for the fifth card, I'm not sure why I call this mess a sketch at all but it makes sense in my head and just doodled it while I was painting the pile of gifts so I wouldn't forget the idea, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Hint -> sock, teddy, candy:
