EDIT: Here is the colored version. I do wish I was better with coloring (tutorial time!).

Still.....I can haz minor improvement? [link]
(That's from last year.)

Merry Christmas.


For some reason, I always feel compelled to upload the rough drafts of my religious pictures. I wish I had some idea why.

But yes, somewhere in all those terrible pencil scratches and erase marks is the image of Mary, Joseph and Jesus. (Maybe I upload these so I can ask if anything needs to be changed?)

Line art will hopefully fix some errors and problems.Any suggestions? And the final version will be up....hopefully some time before Christmas.

Thank you!
