thanks for the feedback, i definitely agree on a few points, and plan to make revisions if i choose to make it a completed piece.
my original idea for the sketch was to try and show that music is just as powerful force as religion, and that it can influence people in the same way. although i agree religious figures are played out, i used the christ image to show that individuals worship the art of music as much as their "lord and savior".
i used the cartoonish style because it was a sketch i did in a couple days, and to make it have more of a strange, out of place feel. you said that cartoons only make people laugh, but i disagree because they can definitely be disturbing instead.
please browse the pictures on my profile if you'd like to see fully completed pieces.
