I wanted to capture the moment when Christ first stepped from the tomb, in all of His resurrected glory.
A vivid, icon-inspired portrayal of the Resurrected Christ. Colored pencil is the prominent medium used.
I was contemplating on how best to depict Christ's Resurrection in a unique style. One night as I was praying the Rosary this image popped into my head!
What I truly enjoyed in this drawing was the sun behind Our Lord and the angels. Also, it was very hard to get the dimensions of the cave correct.
Jesus Ascending into heaven after the resurrection on Easter day in simplicity but the lily at the mouth if the cave shows symbolism.
I just wanted to portray the World's superpower, bowing down to Christ's Glory. I guess my pens and inks did the rest.
A pencil sketch of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ scene, using sketching and shading with a regular pencil, with some small computer effects.
Christus in Gloria, Christ in Glory, a portrait in chalk pastel, is the Resurrected Jesus displaying His Glorious Wounds.
Drawing of Jesus rising from the tomb, with an Angel worshiping and frightened soldiers on ground with 3 women approaching in background.
His most Holy Face surrounds it all in a beautiful Heavenly glow, for He is God Almighty, and He is risen.

So how does the voting work?
There are two kinds of voting; public voting, and staff selection.
It’s possible that an entry may win both! But only the staff selection will be nominated to the official 1st and 2nd place, and merit the prizes.
We will showcase the 1st and 2nd popular votes as well, if they differ from the staff picks.
