I've finished the story and I've come to a conclusion: I do not like to draw crowd scenes. Unfortunately, if I'm going to illustrate any more of these Bible tales, I'll probably have to do more of them. Crowds frequently seemed to assemble in those days. Until the advent of CNN I guess people had to go check things out themselves in person.
The other tricky scene to illustrate was the parting of the Jordan River. Having never seen a river parted in person, I can only speculate what it must of looked like. Did it pile up on one side or did it momentarily solidify like jello. My drawing looks like the latter, but other than that, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.
