This is an iPad painting that I did months ago. It's just a sketch but it has an important feeling of mystery to it that is important to the story. So much of what really happened anciently is shrouded in mystery. We know so little!
These two prophets walk alongside the Jordan river near Jericho, a desert city about 15 miles from Jerusalem.

Little Nephi explores an ancient olive grove (it's his first time in such a place). These groves are sacred locations that have been corrupted with pagan sacrifice by the worshippers of Ba'al. This one is one of the few that has not been polluted...
In real life, some of these groves were thousands of years old, even in the time of Jeremiah. Yes, olive trees, when taken care of properly, live for thousands of years!!!
This is getting close to the quality that I want panels in the comic book to be. It's so hard to set (and keep!) standards that are better than you are!
Stay tuned! More coming next week!
