    I will be totally honest. I have struggled for years for a reason a purpose and way to use my art to serve my Lord Jesus. Yes I am glad I did not sell it all. Not because I am prosperous from it but because my Lord spoke to my heart and showed me that he freely gave me my talents as He freely forgives our sin at the acceptance of His work on the cross. His answer was to freely give and that is how I now serve Him with my art. I now trust in Him to supply all my needs and He has restored my joy.

    I have been doing all different mediums and discovering how I can incorporate one style into others. For instance I used scratching and eraser techniques in this colored pencil drawing and layering techniques from pastels.

    Thanks you and all the others here for the encouragement and confidence you had in me while I struggled. I pray I can be a light that shines brightly for others to find their way.

    I really love this one. The texture really speaks to me and reminds me of his character and even more so after seeing the last movie. You did a great job of capturing his grittiness.

    If you like working in colored pencil, you should look at powder blenders. Makes for smooth blending of large areas with a brush. Something I just recently learned about. I've wanted to try the Caran D'ache Pablo pencils but I'm really loving the Faber-Castell Polychromos. Ended up giving away my Prismacolor set (most of it).

    I find it amazing that God gives us all certain talents, and it's up to us to figure out how to use them. We may never know what crazy things come from our works. A piece of art could keep someone from committing suicide- or doing some other violent act. We just never do know...

    Yes I have read about the powder blenders and also some good things about C Pablo pencils. The price of these pencils are a killer for me. I would love some better ones, but I have no cash to purchase anything new. Thanks for the insight.

    My wife and I just watched the Logan movie. Wow. What a step up in violence and language from the previous in the series. They must've got sponsored by somebody to use as many f-bombs as possible. :eek:

    Really nice work :thumbsup:

    Tell me about it! I thought the same thing. I even said to my daughter's boyfriend that they never had him swear like that in their other movies.
