Model No.2; Jesus On The Mountain

I have got back into drawing, especially attempts at realism with pencil, and have started using oil paints. Oils are fantastic, like Play-Do when you're a kid - you want to eat them. The Jesus picture wasn't my choice of subject matter, a guy at work asked me to do it for money (£17).
I've been thinking, since technology is so sick these days (Avatar), somebody really needs to explore realism in a cartoon with some kind of serious subject matter. Simpsons, Family Guy etc. are amazing and provide decades of entertainment, imagine what you could do with a cartoon adaptation of a novel like ... I don't know, The Catcher in The Rye springs to mind. Any good novel. I suppose there's Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly pioneering (as far as I know) this kind of thing, but it seems pretty rare.

He pointed at the cars. Why do you ask that? She would not seek it. And a great deal more. You do not approve of that statement? I am not a technologist, Miss Taggart. You cannot expect them to support science. I have not seen him since.
