You are Blessed by Risen-Art You are Blessed by Risen-Art
I hope to colour this very soon. I drew this a while back and I can already see several things are off. Need to practice anatomy more.

Heheh, Gabriel has feathery hair :XD: If you're wondering what thiat THING is, Gabriel is holding a giant, twin shofar horn. Hey, if you're a herald, you gotta make your presence known. I'll probably draw a full body of my design for Gabriel soon.

Joseph looks troubled, since his fiance is mysteriously pregnant. Very understandable ^^;

Based off Luke 1:

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. 28The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."

29Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."

34"How will this be," Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?"

35The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[c] the Son of God. 36Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. 37For nothing is impossible with God."

38"I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her.

Actually his mouth says he's kind of pissed off, but the eyes say he's confused. It's a very ambiguous emotion, which fits. So, good work again. Yeah I know I normally just go through a ton of pics.

I would think he could have felt betrayed/bewildered; that's what I was going for here. You can tell by the way he later protected her that he loved her a LOT.

Wow! Mary is very pretty! and Joseph looks totally the part.

It's very strange to see them in manga style. But it looks very tasteful and pretty. Not disrespectful or overboard but just pretty.

Again, you do such a great job of expressing emotions and setting moods in your pics. Their expressions illustrate those real, believable emotions of what they could've been feeling about the situation. I'm sure they trusted in God, but as humans it's likely there were at least sometime when it worried them.

I like how you drew Gabriel more outgoing and upbeat here. Seems very appropriate for the messenger bearing that kinda news.

:thumbsup: : )

Mary looks a tad perplexed.

I love Gabriel, though. You should draw a color picture of him. I like his design a lot. At least he realizes that this is, in fact, good news.

:D;;

*giggles* I had to be in a play once which I over zealously voulenteered for before knowing the plot and I ended up being mary! It was really awkward since I had a pregnancy phobia at the time and my husband was a friend of mine whom I sort of liked at the time and it was well....this brought up memories..but besies that this is a beautiful piece and I still greatly enjoy seeing your manga style interpret the Bible. Makes it really enjoyable to go through again and again ^^

Simply beautiful. I really like how Gabriel came out. He looks just like I would have imagined it. And the expressions on Joseph and Mary are perfect. I can't wait to see it colored.

And I still think it's great that you put Bible verses like that. Really brings out the meaning of the art even more.

Their expressions are PERFECT!!! Very fitting. Mary and Joseph look a bit confused but Gabriel has a very kind and reasuring smile as he tells Mary that her child is God's son, which I'm sure is just what they needed at the moment. ^^ You protrayed this scene wonderfully. Thank you for always posting such wonderful pictures.
