The King's Birth
ok, so i'm new to CA and i know this is kinda late into the contest but i'd figure i'd give it a try. i decided to illustrate a scene in the Bible in Revelations that i always found really visually interesting and i've always wanted to illustrate it. here are the verses that tell the story of the birth of the king:
The Woman and the Dragon
1A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. 5She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.
and here is my sketch
sorry if its kinda small. i need to work on resizing it. the original was quite large...
