Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

DRAWING NOTES:

TIME OF DAY:
This scene is set in the late morning.

LIGHTING NOTES:
There is general sunlight illuminating the scene, with the additional “heavenly glow” coming from above.

CHARACTERS PRESENT:
On the right is Jesus the Christ, on the left is John the Baptist.
A dragonfly, frog & fish are also present in the scene.

RESEARCH/ADDITIONAL NOTES:
I’m pleased with the way the water came out in this scene.

The dragonfly on the leaf (bottom right) is a Violet Dropwing (Trithemis annulata)

The frog on the ground (bottom left) is a Hula painted frog (Discoglossus nigriventer)

The fish jumping out of the water is not of any particular kind, although I was thinking of the fish I drew in Matthew 04, Jesus calls Simon & Andrew, which was a Tilapia, also called “St. Peter’s fish.”
