15 Illustrations to Share Winter Beauty and Christmas Magic

Winter is a super inspiring season for digital artists. To share the mood and atmosphere, here are lovely illustrations full of winter beauty and Christmas magic.

They say that winter is a cold, bland, and monochrome season. Yet, it only is you want it that way. For many people, winter is the time of freshness and subtlety. It teaches us to see the slightest hues, to feel the nuances, to heat the silence and to believe in magic. No doubt, it’s a super inspiring season for illustrators and digital artists. So, to share that mood and atmosphere, we’ve collected the set of artworks full of winter beauty and Christmas magic, made by Tubik Arts illustrators. Enjoy and get inspired!

Winter Landscapes

Snow, frost, fresh air, and clear sky. Long nights, deep shadows, crusty whiteness, a hundred shades, and hues. All that is about the illustrations inspired by nature views and landscapes covered in winter beauty.

Winter nights are long and cozy: the shadows get longer, the light gets warmer, with the time that seems to get slower and feelings that reach deeper.

Here’s the digital artwork playing off with the negative space and creates the mood of Christmas coming soon: the lovely and cute cottage in the forest, covered with snow and decorated with flashlights, is elegantly integrated into the silhouette of Santa Claus.

Cute Christmas Characters

For many people, even very serious and “adult” in their daily life, Christmas is the time of cuteness. So, December is the time when graphic designers and illustrators are super productive in breathing life into the diversity of funny animals and creatures sharing festive mood.

What if animals have their own Christmas parties – that’s the idea behind the short animated cartoon

When one illustration is a whole Christmas story: far far away, there is a place where winter is cozy, the air is fresh, and Mother Polar Bear tells her Baby Bear a fairytale about the weird and funny creatures called people…

Buying presents, choosing presents, and dreaming about presents is a great part of the Christmas season, isn’t it? That’s the mood shared with the illustration.

winter sports illustration tubikarts

People doing winter sports always awe with their brightness. Perhaps, due to the brightly colored clothes contrasting with the fresh whiteness of snow. Or maybe that’s because of the wild dynamics of the most popular winter sports. Anyway, it’s easy to feel that with the artwork above.

Another popular kind of fun associated with Christmas and winter holidays is outdoor skating, right like on this bright illustration

Whatever age, gender or nature, it seems most people will never get tired of watching the snow falling. It gives us a special mood and never stops amazing us. That’s the atmosphere we tried to transfer with the animated illustration, which was the test of Procreate animation functionality.
