New Drawing

The first one in months!

Excuse(s): I've been away (spent all of July screwing around the desert in California), had to make a major move back to DC from Philadelphia, and had my third child arrive a month ago. I'm still unpacking yo! And getting less than 3-4 hours sleep a day!

I may have to revisit this drawing... I couldn't remember exactly on which side Christ was pierced by the Spear of Destiny used by the Roman Centuriun Longinus.

I've drawn a slight reference to it on His left side, as my Catholic school background seems to recall that side, but since I am not very religious, I can't be 100% sure. I guess I will check the New Testament, unless someone can leave a comment and let me know. Then I will draw the wound.
