11x14 Oil on canvas board. I would consider this my first real attempt at an original portrait of the Savior. There are some things I'm not quite satisfied with yet, but this is just a study for a larger color version I will be doing.
Wonderful lighting. Weird question...what do you use to sign your paintings? I always have trouble with that.
I started using what's called a "ruling pen." I believe they are used by architects, it's a type of technical pen that you can load up with ink I believe. But I thin my paint down and load the ruling pen with paint of any color I need/want. An old Illustration teacher from college taught me that neat little trick.
i love this picture!
Wow, that's amazing! It's so nice to find good art depicting our Savior these days, and the love in his eyes is especially apparent here!
This is really well done Good job on the light and shadow!
I love this
Wow. What a great picture! I don't like many pics of the Savior because they don't feel right, but His eyes and His smile make this one a favorite. Thank you.
For the record, this one of the best renditions of Jesus I have ever seen here on DeviantArt. Amazing.
The eyes draw you right in
Awesome! I've been trying for a while to come up with an original portrait of the Savior but I've had no luck. This is incredibly difficult to do! Thanks so much for sharing
Thank you very much. I've put this over for YEARS, and still feel that it'll be a while still before I can do more of the Savior.
It's so beautifully drawn! I love the Savior's expression. I can't wait for the colored version.
What a wonderful rendition of our Saviour. You even caught the love in his eyes. Truly masterful.
this is truly magnificent. It really has a lovely, peaceful feeling to it. I should get a print of this some day ^^
i loved ittttttttt, perfectly done , God bless u
Very good work, I'm still training, so I have nothing in my gallery, but again congratulations on the great job!
Thank you for the kind words. I'm still training too. It's nice to be able to post stuff on here and see how people react to it, it's helpful.
Nice work- especially on the eyes.
