Rescued By Love by wraithdt Rescued By Love by wraithdt
Something new to grace my gallery of works. I did this for a Catholic Youth Ministry I'm apart of. Specifically its done as a poster and flyer art to promote this year's Youth in the Spirit Seminar.

This is a collaborative piece with my girlfriend. To view the poster just visit her deviant [link]

This also the first time I've ever had to paint Jesus Christ and I took it as a chance to show my love for him through my work. I'm happy with way it turned out:)

He is my savior and the hope for all humanity and I'm indebted to him forever.

Have a Good Friday and Happy Easter in advance!

Ya know mate,
this depicts very well on how He saved me from suicide. And to think that, despite all my errors, He still cares for me and stays with me.

You love Jesus, so do I man! :w00t:
God is good!

What a great piece of artwork!
May God richly bless you and your family!

This is definitely the proper kind of love, ironically, it's very similar to the kind that motivated Thrawn in Star Wars to go into the military, I strongly believe: a brotherly kind, fraternal to the core, totally chaste and celibate, but also extremely sacrificial in nature.
His, and yes, I do mean Christ here, His kind also requires our consent of some form or another to work. That's the prerequesite detail for Him to work in our lives: we have to agree to it, some way or another, even the mere soul consenting, telepathically, as it were, is sufficient for Him to work His miracles in our lives.
What's the biggest daily or weekly miracle He does? I dare say it's the sacrament of Penance, the forgiveness of sins, but He may well disagree... that's for discussion to suss out, though.

This is simply beautiful, as all your works, but the love and inspiration you put into it is obvious. It's great to see such a talented artist as yourself who is courageous enough to share your Catholic faith. God bless! :)

Why not draw some love for the forgetten better gods?

Like the amazing Horned god of the forest?
Thirteen4one Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Because they aren't true gods. They wouldn't be forgotten if they were, they can't be better if they're forgotten.

I love this piece! It shows the strength and compassion of Jesus Christ! As I gaze upon this image, I am reminded of an old Chinese quote: The strong do not hold the weak down, they lift them up.

Well Done!

It's not often that I hear someone speaking about Jesus Christ in such warm terms. Great to hear, and I have been appreciating your pictures in your gallery. Really brilliant stuff. Thank you. I am up relatively late, finishing off a kids talk for church, based on John Bunyan's book 'The Holy War'. So I appreciated your paintings of individual armed men - brilliant - the sort of pictures I wish I could draw to illustrate the story I'm telling to the children tomorrow by Bunyan.

Oh my! I LOVE this SOOOO much! This is gorgeous, poignant, and very much how I could see Jesus heling us when we are in need. Favorite!!!

This is too beautiful for words! (Yet, here I am, trying to put that in words...) 

I love that you painted Jesus in the sort of clothing one would expect, and the young man he's helping in more modern-looking clothes. There's something really perfect about that, and showing that Jesus came for all generations... 
(Hopefully I'm not reading too much into things. Either way, that's what I got out of it!) 

Anyway, in short, it is gorgeous and I love it!

So Beautiful, It would be interested if you that are gifted, add and or manipulate this image to be a girl as well  or non detaled sex image..... leaving  a drug or alcohol addiction behind them surrender their lives to Jesus Christ maybe as a proposition this comming year.  This will be a magnificent piece to your gallery, I am sure will spread the lesson through your art.  May Jesus Christ and Virgin Mary bless you and love ones.  Amen.

Beautiful. I like how you conveyed Jesus as a physically strong man; as a carpenter, he would have been.

It's so awesome seeing a talented artist using their skill to glorify the Lord! Thank you! I'm looking for an illustrator for a Christian fantasy novel. I saw in one of your posts that you do commission work? Do you have a website or a way we can connect privately to discuss your availability and fees? Josh

Wow, I see the tendrils of darkness and Jesus Christ pulling the guy out, who also seems to be without any strength of his own. Wonderful piece of art, and a great message!
