This is my very first foray into religious artwork- so long as we aren't counting Paladins, Clerics, Menite scrutators, avenging angels of destruction, 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.
Okay, so a brief respite away from my standard fantasy Bones stuff to get a small portion of my mother's Christmas gift done. She collects nativities, so this made a lot of sense to finally order and paint up. Group shot, then close ups follow... The big/little guy was the hardest, by far. There isn't a lot of room for detail, being a baby, and painting it where it doesn't exist is difficult for me. Went for a closed eye look, hopefully it comes across that way...
