Messiah 4 by pazlowq Messiah 4 by pazlowq
The quote is taken from the KJV.

The four women around him from right to left are the woman at the well[John 4] the woman with the issue of blood [Mark 5] the woman caught in adultery to be stoned by the Pharisees [John 8] and Mary the sister of Martha [Luke 10]. The idea for the beaming light was inspired by Andrea Verrocchio's Baptism of Christ [c.1470] it follows the same pattern except with a stronger flow. The concept for Christ is after the scourging, but prior to crucifixion. [Potential interpretations of the work could include 1 Corinthians 11:28-30; John 6:31-33.]

Did most of the coloring digitally, the piece was scanned first in pencil, so that the final image would feature some more grit in the form of stray lines/graininess/varying levels of line art density. The digital coloring tried to replicate a watercolor type effect that mostly uses heavy white spaces. at times digital lines were used to replace pencilled lines that weren't scanned too well.

The coloring tries to achieve tone by mixing a variety of colors at low opacity. Skin tones ranged from dark heavy browns to light yellows and even white. when it comes to choosing colors the whole warm/cold color thing is kinda something that i forget to do from time to time, might've happened here as well, good thing my upcoming graphic novel will be in black and white...
