This scene is about Jesus praying in the garden at Gathsemane while the disciples sleep before he got crucified next day if i'm right... One of my very religious friend asked me to draw Jesus Christ at the rock and gave me a old terribly fuzzy ref picture.. and some right bottom corner part was torn and missing ...i was like "oh my lord" even tho i'm not really religious lol...but i decided to draw it bcz i've never drawn a small figure using the whole scenery before and would be fun using some of my imagination for the missing parts. and i think it came out ok and like the moon and the small buildings of the city. the size is 12 inch X 10.50 inch drawn on vellum finish bristol...

I say you did good. I like how his face is in a middle of something. I have read this part, and I say I more saw it lake he held his hands tight togehter to his forehead and pray. But this, I got to say, looks great.

Awesome pic! You've really captured the essence of the moment, here: Jesus' distress at facing a brutal death; as well as the overwhelming and sinking feeling that he was facing this alone -- without his friends!

For someone who describes themselves as 'not really religious', you've done a hell of a job; while tackling a project concerning a religious icon. A job well done! :)
