I was greatly inspired by Robert Powell and his portrayal in the movie 'Jesus of Nazareth. To date he seems to have been the actor most people preferred in the role for his kind face and amazing eyes.

You nailed it.  No pun intended.  This is great work.

Oh, I've fallen in love with it! The eyes!!! Magnificent! I believe you've actually captured the essence of this actor and I believe of Jesus as well. I can't take my eyes off the eyes! Beautiful work!
