This is pretty much as close as I get to religious art. I've always figured that if at some point, everyone spontaneously stops caring about my work, and stops hiring me, I'd decide between the two "dark sides" of making a ridiculous amount of money as an artist: Religious art, or fan-art porn. And I have to be honest, I'm much more inclined toward the latter. I grew up in the very preachy environment of Hypermormonville, UT, and my skin burns anytime I'm within a hundred yards of a church of any kind. That's not to say I don't appreciate that religion has it's place - it's just not for me. Like skydiving isn't for fish, veganism isn't for tigers, and blacksmithing isn't for hummingbirds. But there is something about a GOOD religious painting. Which are few, and far-between. They're like 1/1000, because holy Xenu there's a lot of cut-and-paste turbo-generic Jesus paintings out there. But a good religious painting can pull at something in us. Connect us to something. And that's what I was going for in this piece. That sense of being intimately connected to a higher power. A higher power like a good whiskey, or a really great movie, or a dripping mountain of fresh donuts.

Hola, i love/like/fascinates/as characters/people of women of white skin/brunette/dark, dark medium (and other types of skin shades) and clear your legs, hip, your physique, your hair, your eyes, your lips, your clothes, your breasts, postures Very sexy/daring and clear to know who it really is, plus I like the characters/people gay/lesbian, bisexual, transgender to know/as and make friends or something else.
Well I like all its content, because you have a good eye/gift/skill in creating/performing in the characters of women, because you give something different/special and therefore is an excellent job.
until then, you are racist. and people have a right to call you out on it just like you have a right to say it. freedom of speech is not freedom of consequences.
Do you take commissions ? Separate question : what is your computer specs ? And which drawing device do you use ?
If you ever go to the dark side hit me up... I will commission you 😉
I presonally sold my soul to the holy god of food and animals xD <3
( not in one ;o I love animals, but not as food haha )
Well, eitherway, I like how you made your statement to not feel religious in anyway, without insulting anyone and just realized that you spoke the truth with the only way to really make money as an artist D: pretty weird if you think how really different those ways are xD
Also I gotta tell you: your artwork looks so amazingly. I'm also not religious - I mean - sure, maybe there is something, but maybe there is nothing? I don't think I get to know this fact in my life, and as long as I don't know, I simply can't believe in it.
I don't think religion is either good, nor evil, it's the believer that decide how to manage this.
Well - whatever, I talk to much. What I wanted to say is, that, even if I'm not a believer, I love religious art - or maybe not religious but the kind of art, that has something "holy" or "faith"-bringing, just like this peace ♡
I'm sure you worked so damn hard on it and I can tell, you can be proud of it! ❤
Also I will follow you now that I found you!
