Child, Please,
Don't close your ears,
Don't stop them up,
I love you so very, very much,
I have reached out to you,
in every way there was,
in every way there is,
in every way there will be,
I keep reaching,
So you might hear my speaking,
So you might be free,
So you might know truth,
So you might know my love for you,
Will you accept it?
Will you?
I have taken your wrongs on me,
I died a terrible, awful death so you could be free,
Will you accept me?
Will you accept me taking the punishment you deserved for your wrongs?
Will you accept you are forgiven?
Even for sins you have not yet done?
You are so wonderful and precious to me,
Will you accept my love?
Will you accept me?
My name is Jesus.

Progress for the week

Hi All:

Back from PHX Comic Fest.  Some ups and downs, but still grateful I went this year.

This page I finished before comic fest, along with a revision the big frame in the background.  First time doing a revision and got a crash course in Photoshop elements.  2-2 for today so far.

Post one thing you like and one thing you dislike.

This week's progress

So I was advised by a pro to ink with a brush.  A daunting idea to say the least but practically not viable as my apartment is all carpet, so to spill would mean extra charge for me when I move out.  But low and behold, micron manufactures pens with pain brush tips, and once again I found myself without an excuse to try it.  So this week's page was my first try inking with a brush pen.  The first is the raw as it shows on the page attempt.  The second is the retouched attempt through photoshop to smooth out the shaky lines and big globs of black from trying to keep the pen steady.  Still learning.

Post one thing you like and one thing you don't like.
