Esther ch.3: Mordecai refuses to bow

From Esther ch.3. A painting of Mordecai refusing to bow to Haman. Most likely a refusal to bow to a Agagite, not a deity/idol thing. Refusing, as a Jew, to bow to a cultural enemy.
I wold have spent more time on details and such since it's a rather large canvas (16x20"), but the closest it will be seen is from at least 20 feet away. It's an illustration for our Esther series at RCLB. Each week, someone is doing a painting to illustrate that week's chapter. So I went w/ 'mural' detail levels... just trying to get the general feel. Let me know what you think.

Rose and Crossbones

All I could think about this weekend was how much I didn't like the rose in my last post. Here's a bit more traditional look. No yellow-highlighter this time, just red and black ballpoint pens. :)

Rose w/ teeth sketch

Ballpoint pen and highlighter on notebook paper. Had to add the green in photoshop, since I don't have a green prisma at work.
