Atonement

This is a very personal sketch for me. Once in a while I like to try to think of metaphors to help me better understand the magnitude of what Christ did in taking on the sins of everyone. It's just such a tough thing for me to grasp. So here you have the weight of the world literally on Christ's back. I like the sketch and think that I might return to it, refine it, and fix some of the anatomy issues I'm seeing.

  1. This is a beautiful interpretation of Christ bearing a heavy weight. I'm new to your blog, and was happily surprised to discover that you are LDS. I am as well, though I haven't been active for a while (which I guess I should clarify that it has nothing to do with lack of testimony). Anyway, I saw your submission piece on Jon's ArtOrder - Hurakan challenge... very nice. Love your stuff, keep it up!
