commissioned art (sort of)

Someone I know asked me to produce the following piece of art for him:

i did a number of sketches trying to arrive at a composition i liked, as well as getting anatomical proportions reasonably accurate.

Initially, I was going to do it with Jesus' face out of the frame, leaving only the suggestion of who He was by the marks in the hands, and leave the face to the viewer's imagination, but when i showed my friend my initial sketches, he asked me to put the face in, so, being an obliging artist, I went with what "the client" wanted.
