Last night, as I was looking for good illustrations of Yehovah calling Israel to himself, leading them, the blind, lame, women with children and in labor. Or even pics of him protecting women in labor… And came up feeling rather empty handed. So, today, while listening to teachings, I created what I will call a “concept art” or a ROUGH draft. Someday maybe I’ll get it painted, or maybe someone who sees this will take the idea and paint it. 😀
It needs to be painted on a canvas several feet longer, so that the perspective and size difference between the people is not pronounced, and looks more realistic. It also needs a lot more people, some who aren’t lame, blind, with child or in labor, and the city needs to be larger, brighter, more inviting with GOLD streets, not silver. But, there’s only so much I could fit well on 11 X 15. 😀 With paint, the facial features would have a lot more detail. However, for pencil, and it being a concept art – to lay out a blueprint for what is in my mind, I’m happy with it.
Special nods to my Indian heritage reflected in the nursing mother, and inspiration drawn from my mom’s labor with my younger brother (beard added to her hubby due to having a hard time getting his chin defined well), and from my brother-in-love pushing my sister-in-love in her wheelchair, with my youngest walking alongside. 😀
Here are several pics – two with flash, two without…
