Born the King of Angels

Description: Created: November 13, 2006.

So... this is the Christmas project. This has been in the works for over a year. I had the concept and started on it last year, but got distracted by certain things that were going on in my life at the time, and didn't really have the time or desire to finish it. Until a couple months ago...

I don't know where I got the original concept for this, but I had it labeled in my sketchbook as 'Angels Bow'. It was supposed give a glimpse into what might have been going on in the spiritual realm at Christ's birth. That concept sort of evolved as I worked on it. I was originally going to have 2 more angels, seraphim, bowing on the ground, but I ran out of space and really just wanted to finish the picture, so I left them out. And I had a really awesome idea for the cherubims up top... See if you catch the symbolism ;) (read Exodus 25:18-22 for a clue). The title of course comes from the song "O Come All Ye Faithful".

Anyway, another picture I'm glad to finally finish. Expect to see a lot of this one. I'm going to publish it as a Christmas card on Zazzle, and try to promote it pretty heavily. And in case I don't post anything else before then, Merry Christmas.
