Thank you so much! Something so many of us tend to forget is what it's all really about, we get so sucked up into worldly things and goings on.

This is extremely well done. Very realistic. (You even did a great job on the hands! I hate drawing hands!!)

Thank you! One of the toughest parts of the body to draw I think are hands.

Lovely work. I love Joseph's arm around her and his hand on her womb. Great detail with the North Star in the background. Merry belated Christmas to you too!

Gorgous drawing,dear Carole!:iconbeatingheartplz:
Very interesting to see the process and volution of Your wips.
I like this scene with Joseph and Mary,pregnant,very much.Joseph putting his hand tenderly arround the unborn baby,this is very touching and emotional,we are not used to see this "point of view"of the "holy family",and I really adore it!:iconbeauroseplz:

Thank you so much Flori! :hug: :heart:
Very true. I have not seen too many works of Joseph and Mary, before she gives birth. My friend Kat did an amazing piece similar to this one last year that is simply breathtaking just a really beautiful piece [link]

When doing this piece, I tried to imagine everything that was going on through their minds, before the birth. I am sure each had worries, but to be blessed with such a gift of being the parents and witnessing the birth of the Messiah - no greater gift.
