It is I, Be Not Afraid

Post by gardenninja » Thu Oct 08, 2015 2:52 pm

This is my very first foray into religious artwork- so long as we aren't counting Paladins, Clerics, Menite scrutators, avenging angels of destruction, Saints of the Imperium, ancient Greek religious icons... well, you know- stuff.

This is a statue by Angela Johnson that I painted up (she also sculpted a larger than life size version in bronze that'll be in the Thanskgiving Point gardens).

Overall, I was really taken by the expression she got on him, and I really wanted to make that work in the painting. It isn't all the time that we see a Jesus be so expressive.

I also posted him up to CMON for those of you who care to vote. I'm honestly really wondering what the meta is like for religious art over there.

Thanks.

It is sometimes tricky to pull off white like that- I messed around with it for a while to get it working.
