I Believe is finally finished. Done in color pencil on Stonehenge. As to the meaning behind the portrait - My idea behind this portrait was to capture a man's emotions who truly believes in his faith and has come to a dawning moment of pure simple joy, awe and peace. The scan didn't pick up all the details of the clouds but if you look hard you will see some images in the clouds.

Resource of the Week
As portable devices and social networking become a dominant part of most artists lives. I have discovered a valuable artist tool for my iPhone - Pose tool. It uses a 3D platform to place subjects in various poses. It has 3 point lighting and 4 different modes to place the subject in - muscle, life, mannequin and gesture. Check out the review and details here http://udm4.com/iPhone/Pose_Tool-3221943 You can download it from your app store for $3.99. Well worth the cost.
I hope everyone has a blessed week!
