Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Matthew 18:10-14 (NLT)
10 “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. [1]
12 “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? 13 And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. 14 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.”

[1]
Some manuscripts, heaven. 11 The Son of man came to save what was lost.

DRAWING NOTES:

TIME OF DAY:
Noon.

LIGHTING NOTES:
Light comes from the sun overhead.
Notice the dappled light & shadows I have created, which is a product of the sunlight shining through the Acacia bush’s leaves & branches.

CHARACTERS PRESENT:
Shepherd & the lost sheep (lamb)!

RESEARCH/ADDITIONAL NOTES:
This scene is based on the previous one, using similar photo’ reference. I have “zoomed in” on the shepherd’s & lamb’s faces to focus on their expressions. The shepherd has just found his lost sheep, & is delighted, relieved, grateful, after his search for it. The lamb is equally joyful at being rescued from being trapped in that Acacia bush!

The tree behind the shepherd & lamb is the same one in the previous scene, an Umbrella thorn acacia (Acacia tortilis), which is found in semi-steppe shrublands, shrub-steppes, deserts & extreme deserts. I have shown more detail of its leaf structure & those long, sharp thorns which are so characteristic of this shrub/tree.

I have added a butterfly to one of the Acacia bush branches. It is a Large Salmon Arab (Colotis fausta) which can found in hot deserts. This butterfly can be found in Israel, Syria, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, India, Arabia, Chad and Somalia.
