The girl seemed superfluous and then bang here it is PERFECT! Your work sort of reminds me of Spencer Douglas Crockwell, he was an illustrator who had covers on the Saturday Evening Post. He does not command the prices of N Rockwell, but was obviously quite good.
I threw the girl in just for fun ....people kept saying that Santa was in the side car and he needed a driver. Finding a photo to fit the seen is pretty difficult. I wanted a sexy girl and probably should have used a girl in a Santa suit, but it was just for fun and I thought this girl was in the right position and would work.
I lloked at Spencer Douglas Crockwell work ....yeah, he's a lot like Rockwell. I love that type of work and wished I could draw by hand and come up with images like that.
