We're coming up on Christmas Vacation and I'm excited about having a little extra free time. Maybe I'll get to work on a more personal creative project.
In the meantime, I'm continuing to sketch my sermon notes at church. This last Sunday was a little different because the text really came together for me in a single visual. I'd had a few sketches and notes about Deuteronomy 32:15+, but when I came home I found that a particular character kept popping into my head rather urgently. The result is below...
For clarification, feel free to look up the verses. Note that Jeshurun is a reference to Israel in a time that they "grew fat" from the provisions from God yet had an attitude of "scornful esteem" - rolling of the eyes, so to speak, like an impertinent child. The translation of Jeshurun as "The Upright One" I thought was a striking constrast to the the countenance of the character (which, I think, is a key point to those verses).
Overall, it was a fun drawing to do - artisitically speaking, I think I've come a long way in rendering the figure, body language and expression.
