I'm among them to be forgiven when I pretend to paint like a real artist, dear Skylar. On the other side, You do have that talent for sure and doubled it (just to make an appropriate citation).

Talk about your own personal Jesus. . . We all see through our own filters, and why not.
Male model handsome like right out of GQ.

I remember in King of Kings they had Jeffrey Hunter play Jesus and it had a similar vibe in their attempt to depict charisma and get the audience to feel compassion and sympathy by casting a young, really good looking, blue-eyed actor in that role. More like they were casting for the part of Adonis. Did they go overboard with the surface look? Who cares. It was a movie. I wouldn't have cast it that way, but they failed to call me out of my early grade school class to consult me on the casting back in 1960. :rolleyes::p

You have a knack for male beauty in your paintings, Skylar. Well painted.
