I did this colored pencil drawing last Christmas for my family's Christmas card and completely forgot to upload it. I based it off a nativity scene painting I found online, the only information I was able to find about it was that it is copyrighted by Somerset Publishing. So hopefully that is sufficient information as far as referencing. The image helped me with poses and some color, but I definitely extrapolated and changed a lot of elements in my drawing, making it much more cartoony and my style. This is of course Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus on Christmas Eve :). I've been told that Mary looks like me...but that was soooo not intentional if its true, lol, I don't have that high of an opinion of myself! ;)

I like Mary facial expression, it's like "Try not to show how proud I am that God chose *me* to be the Christ Childs mother!" Joseph is like "Yes, I bow before him!"
Beautifully done.

Merry Christmas. I like how they look completely ecstatically happy, like someone just injected some adrenalin in their veins, haha (mostly Joseph though).

Hee hee, thanks! I don't think injections were available back then lol! I think they are just excited about the baby, I'd be excited if I gave birth to Jesus, lol!
