:: Madonna and Child :: by ninebreaker :: Madonna and Child :: by ninebreaker
This is a Christmas card that I was contracted to do for both ColdWater Media and mPower Media. It was a joint effort between me for pencils and artist Brittany Richardson for colors. Aging the card, and doing the actual layout of the card was done by Brian Gage Design.

The point of the card was to create an image of Mary and Jesus while adding an Irish taste in the vein of the Book of Kells. I've always liked traditional Christian art, so I wanted to try to do an "old meets new" kind of thing.

The card was supposed to have gold leafing with the halos of Jesus and Mary, but that didn't happen, much to my dismay.

I still have some cards left if you'd like a belated Christmas gift, so let me know! (for free, yeah?) ^_^

Either way, I hope you enjoy the picture and have a very merry and blessed Christmas!!

Absolutely amazing!

I just want to imagine the paint of St George and the Dragon, or Saint Michael the Archangel stepping the head of the devil in a more epic fashion, I think you can achieve such epicness!

This makes me think more of a modernized Byzantine icon with Hiberno-Saxon added motifs, but once you mentioned the Book of Kells I was like WHOA I SEE IT. :D

she's very beautiful. a very different image of Mary, still recognizable, but definitely beautiful.

Oh, oh this is gorgeous. I love it. I haven't read through all the comments, but I'm assuming after the DD (congrats!) the extra cards have been snapped up - as they should have been. :) I particularly like the way you have mixed art styles with "old meets new", as you said.

this is, in short amazing. I'm not a very religious person but this image touches me it is so beautiful, the detailing is so precis and her features so soft, the baby looks so sweet and the mother her expression is so complicated and perfect.

This is an amazing work and I am simply in awe.
