holy cow Anthony! thats just beautiful. is it a young Jesus? he looks like hes singing a little song as he works.
very nice. i loved getting to see the very close-up scan when i downloaded it! i would love to trade some art with you sometime! would love to have something of yours framed next to my Rockwell prints and my DiTerlizzi display toppers.

Stunning and ethereal. I love it.

Hey thanks Joe! It actually is a little Jesus. I've had an idea for a painting that I really hope I have time to finish. I didn't mean to post the high res file of the drawing... haha! you must have seen it before I corrected that. I'll put it back up

I'd love to exchange some artwork! Tomorrow I'll be deep sea fishing and will get in touch with you Friday - if the sharks don't get me

Thanks Aja! It was difficult forcing myself to slow down and treat the shading lightly. for the past year now most of my drawings have been very loose

Love the feeling of the light washing over the figure. Fantastic in its softness. Very Lovely.
