The very first thing that caught my attention about this piece is your remarkable attention to variety of texture and beautiful mark-making. Your technique is exquisite, and the concept behind this piece is not only clear, but (successfully) edgy and thought-provoking. Religion and religious symbols are great subjects to explore, and I don't see it done this nicely very often on this site. As far as any tips go, I might suggest that you soften up some of the lines around his face the big mutation connecting his mouth to the hat, as it gives it a sort of outline quality that doesn't seem to fit the rest of it. My favourite thing about this drawing is that the more I look at it, the more little things I admire, such as the subtle faces and appendages from other creatures I see crawling all around him. I gotta say it's pieces like this that remind me why I want to be an illustrator. B) Excellent job man

I for one agree with this picture. You can see how it may seem how demon's are surrounding him. This may be so because the pope is the "only one" in contact with god. Yet I belive this is... let me see the dictionary... BULLSHIT.
Any Catholic who follows the Church's teachings considers himself and anyone perfectly able to get in contact with God - i.e, to become a real follower of Jesus Christ, to enter a personal relationship with God, etc.
This drawing truly portrays my feelings about religion, and expresses the theme of my art more than I could ever hope to do xD Have you ever seen the introduction song to "Hunchback of Notre Dame? The theme of the song is, "Who is the monster and who is the man?"
