Have any of my viewers ever wondered what my masterpiece is? Well this is it.

I drew this illustration back in 2002. I wanted to illustrate a story of a wounded knight kneeling in a cathedral and praying. In my mind when I was illustrating this I saw him as a Crusader wounded in battle, dying and praying to a god. So I drew a beam of light shining down on him from the ceiling.

I gave this drawing to my good friend and today I was at her house and I took this photo of my drawing. I had to stand off to the side of it to take this picture because there was so much glare reflecting off the glass.

The dimensions of this drawing is 24x48. This drawing took me 48 hours to complete and that is no lie. I was so happy when I was done drawing this.

To this date I haven't illustrated something as complex as this drawing is. Truthfully I don't want to ever undertake such a complex and detailed drawing as this one is. I did have a reference for this drawing which I gridded and blew up when I drew it. I made a few changes while making this drawing. Such as some of the smaller pillars I made marble for something more interesting to look at.

This is my personal masterpiece, and I am very, very, VERY, proud of it. I am so pleased with this drawing that I would never, ever, change a thing about it.

I hope you like this drawing as much as I do.

So I'll probably have a job soon. I have an employment advocate working with me that has been assigned by the State of Washington. My advocate specializes in working with people with disabilities.

So when I find a job I'll be devoting more time to my art I promise. I know I'll be tired but I don't want to work in a freaking warehouse my entire life and I have talent. Maybe not as much as some of you who are receiving this message, but talent just the same. And I am not going to waste it working in a warehouse. I have a plan to both write and draw a graphic novel that has 2 sequels and sell art at some conventions.

So I promise soon I will be pumping out some great art. Sorry I cannot personalize this response I am atleast reading all of your comments and attempting to respond. Even if you're all getting the same one I had to click on each of you and respond.

Architecture, simple geometric shapes, and symmetry all laugh at me when I try incorporating them into a drawing. Therefore, I am even more awed by this monumental undertaking.
