Straight up, I didn't sculpt this. Brian Jekel (which I hope is pronounced "Jekyll," 'cuz that'd be cool) did as
part of his "Life of Christ" series. No, my house isn't filled with Christian tchotchkes, but I did like Jekel's rendition
of Jesus' prayer at Gethsemane. I painted the figure with acrylics and pastels, taping off the base entirely to avoid
The most fun, oddly enough, was in painting the rocks. It's common for folks to use washes when painting rough
textures like stone, but I dry-brushed all the way. I used 4 different color schemes for the rocks, starting with the
base colors. ie, one base had dark grey, another had brown, another medium grey, and the fourth light gray. Then
I dry-brushed 4-5 different earth and grey colors and occasionally spackled them with brighter colors like moss green.
