This wine bag was inspired by the Winged Corkscrew. It always looked like a soldier to me and it was perfect for this holiday bag. I took inspiration from the Nutcracker story to illustrated this bag. I started by sketching out the design on paper. Then in Illustrator I traced a Winged Corkscrew and placed the path in Photoshop to then create the texture and shading. The color pallet was picked and applied and then all the elements started coming together. The font was the final thing to be laid in and the bag was finished.
