Another one of my favorites from my Jesus drawings series is featured this week!

Title: Communion

Medium: Graphite on paper

Size: 18″ x 24″

When: Winter 2012

Time to complete: About 10 hours over a week

Thought process: This one was fairly easy to design. I knew I wanted Jesus breaking the bread and a glass of wine as the main composition. The balance was a little off, so I ended up adding the bowl of bread to help get the composition right.

Problems I encountered: Oh man, I remember how hard it was to get the shadows just right. They either looked like they were black construction paper on the table or the perspective was off. I still don’t think they’re quite right, but they’re so much better than they had been!

Favorite part: I love the folds on Jesus’ tunic sleeves. I love doing folds in fabric anyway, but I think they’re pretty awesome.

Oh, and the fact that the hands turned out as well as they did was no small miracle. Hands are hard!!!

Least favorite part: I’m not sure. The shadows still bug me, but overall I think this one turned out well and I’m happy with it 🙂

Fun tidbits:

This is one of the most popular drawings in the series!

It is one of the six drawings from the series on permanent display in church.
