Sunday Sermon Series - Luke Chapter 12

Good day everyone, I hope you are well. Today I have an illustration for you from a passing comment in a sermon by Pastor Dennis on Luke chapter 12 verse 24: "Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!"

While Dennis talked about not worrying, I sketched this raven. He's not worrying. He has plenty to eat, and fine clothes too.

I didn't get to spend a lot of time on this piece, we have been quite busy around the Loghry household the last week. We are preparing for the arrival of the latest Loghry baby. A joyous and exciting time to be sure.

I'm happy with how he turned out, except for his shadow, that doesn't look correct to me. Also I really wanted ravens to have a bright yellow band in their eyes, but they really don't. For a quick piece, it is good enough though. He has character, I like him, and the slobby way he is chomping his seeds.

This pencil sketch was done with a Pentel .7mm P207 mechanical pencil in a Pentalic Sketchbook on 70lb paper. It was scanned and then colorized in PhotoShop. I hope you enjoyed this post, and that it encouraged you, made you think, or challenged you. God bless, and have a great day! --Ryan
