Viva el Papa by eightcrows Viva el Papa by eightcrows
We have a new Pope!!! His Holiness Francis I!!!!! AAAAAHH!!!!!
I had to draw a celebratory picture! While we were watching the news from Rome, after the smoke went white but before we knew who it was, I was all like 'Oh my gosh I have GOT to draw Jaime celebrating this!' but I figured he should have someone with him. Bart isn't Catholic, so that wasn't gonna work. Then when His Holiness appeared at the balcony and we found out he was from Argentina, it hit me that it should be Eduardo! (He's likely Catholic. It's not been officially said.) His being from Argentina (for those of you who don't know) is a HUGE deal! He is the first Pope ever from the New World!!!

If you've read FireFiriel's journals lately, then you know how the events of Young Justice have been coinciding with reality. And the election of a new Pope so soon after they saved Jaime is like a miracle. :aww:

EDIT: This picture was drawn before I was aware of the fact that Pope Francis would be making every attempt to destroy the Church from the inside. Here is another Young Justice picture I did more recently that reflects my current views on the subject.…

I might agree Eduardo would likely be Catholic, too, and even though I myself am not a religious person, I would appreciate his excitement, along with Jaime. And this is utterly adorable! The drawing is so full of life, and their poses are really well drawn and realistic; you have an excellent handle on anatomy. Great coloring, the character likenesses are spot-on—all-around a great representation!

And thank you again for drawing Ed! It's great to see some wonderful fanart with him!! :love:

:aww: Thank you very much! Conveying motion in poses is something I struggle with. :)

Thanks again! I must endeavor to some more Runaway fanart sometime! ;)

Of course, you're absolutely welcome! It's really impressive because I'm still struggling with anatomy, so capturing a sense of movement in poses is something too dynamic for me. Kudos because you made it look easy! This is great!!

Yes! Yes, you must do more Runaway fanart! That's an endeavor I shall wholeheartedly endorse. Racing Girl Emoji (Heart shot wink) [V3]
