Beloved Son by MarcusThomas Beloved Son by MarcusThomas
I haven't drawn a picture of Jesus in over a year!! Since then I've grown more in my faith and as an artist. If I can be real with you guys really quick... I have to say this brought tears to my eyes (In a good way :) ). I don't think I've ever cried while drawing before. I love thinking about Jesus' ascension. One can only imagine how it looked... Jesus going up to be with His father... It filled my heart with so much joy and I hope it does the same for you. This song right here really helped me in the process and might just explain my feelings better than I just did lol ----> [link]

I love the freshness of the art work that highlights the message in a new way...seeing Jesus ascending from earth (in the background) into his Father's hands that are wide open.
Not sure how you intended Jesus expression, I see suffering turning to joy - I am coming. I love the heavens through the Father's hands and a star shining in Christ's chest.

A totally new perspective from Jesus and God the Father reuniting and not the usually us...

The colours I think enhance's and does not detract from the message. Hope you don't mind, but I am popping this in an assignment for a Lent Course. Thanks you
What do you think?

I didn't. Just because his skin has a light complexion doesn't mean he's white. And besides... he's surrounded by different light sources so his skin is almost to the point of glowing.

I bet several people feel that same way. And I can understand where you're coming from. I'm not 100% sure about what your situation is so I can't give you a definite answer... Could be conviction. Could be you're tired of seeing religion all together 'cause it's confusing.... I dunno. Like I said, I don't have the answer. But I can tell you that you're not wrong about me boasting. 1 Corinthians 1:31 says "Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord." It's true that I'm boasting but it's not out of foolishness, arrogance or with a puffed up heart. It's me out of love saying "EVERYONE COME LOOK! LOOK AT HOW AMAZING JESUS IS! LOOK AT WHAT HE'S DONE FOR ME!! GOD IS SO GOOD!" If there is something amazing that's happened to you then you tell others about it right? Well that's what I'm doing. :D I hope this helped... Here's a link to a song by one of my favorite artists about boasting in Jesus. ------> www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0E0Na…

its good as I drawing but I am really not for religious drawings, I never feel inspired or anything from them. I feel like its boasting about your religion... I don't know why I feel that way about religious drawing but I just do.
