Portrait of Mary, the mother of Jesus using the Shroud of Turin. Some believe that the Turin Shroud depicts Jesus, however there are strong arguments that the shroud is not Jesus's burial cloth, but may be contemporaneous and may resemble a common facial structure of the region, hence why we chose to use it as reference. Painted in Photoshop CC using Wacom Cintiq 22HD.
