an update of this.

I don't often do religious art because my skills are not fitting to the subject so I got the idea that if I do fan art of religious art I can draw something religious without being directly disrespectful to Jesus. 
a quick fan art of a picture of Jesus that I like, in which to my mind he looks very sad.

the larger picture this is taken from is called the rich young ruler, and it depicts Jesus inviting a rich young man to give away everything of this world and follow him to become part of HIs Kingdom. the young man rejects his offer. 

Jesus is sad because the young man loves money more than Heaven. basically. 

many of us cling to the things of this world which have no true value, rather than receiving the Joy He wants us to have.

how I made this-- a pencil sketch on lined paper,-- photographed on iPad-- mailed to myself and outlined with fire alpaca and fill colored. [because lined paper is not allowed here]for the original version I posted before

tonight I re-lined it a bit more carefully and added some shading. I didn't look at the reference while shading, I just made the fill color a bit less flat.

[at this point this looks nothing like the original version, more or less]
