    If you read the original post, you'll find, "The function that allows avatars to be uploaded broke a few weeks ago for unknown reasons." There's a workaround posted in comment #6 you can try....

    I can't think of a single one that isn't evolved from others.





    I always found "belief system" to be an interesting combo of words.

      Am I crazy to think this isn't really a request for a critique as much as a blast looking for validation? No offense meant, but the way the op is written makes me wonder.

      Regardless. It's expressive art not design. If you feel accomplished about the final image then that is that.
      Seriously, read this.

        Overall, you have a beautiful mystical effect with all the layers, and the colors are beautiful. A lot of symbology is in this piece, which adds a deeper element to the design.

        Jesus looks awfully cliche to me, but that's personal... (I'd love for someone to make him how he actually was someday - Jewish.)

        However, you have a few centers of interest fighting with each other, which creates a chaotic feel - (this will probably sound like pure gobbledegook to you, but I'll give it a go), the eye is following the lights and you have the hebrew symbols in the circles, Jesus, the white thing behind him and the guy on the right along with the whatever it is in the sky above the pyramid all working against each other. This is why it feels confusing and chaotic.
        You will have to sacrifice some things to make this work as a cohesive whole - darken some of these areas, decide what is the most important thing and de-emphasize the rest.

        But all in all it is a lovely start, just keep going - try to unclutter and streamline it - (and you don't need to delete things, just get your lights and darks in order).

        The beauty of photoshop is you can make copy after copy, revert back to the original, so you're not gonna mess it up beyond repair... can't do that with a painting.

              How exactly do we make him look more Jewish, ask him to show us his "birthright?

                All these responses and yet the original poster never came back.

                Jesus wept.

                  Apparently this is what Jesus really looks like. It was painted by Akiane Kramarik, a child prodigy who claims she has visions of Jesus. Another boy who died in the hospital and was resuscitated by the doctors claims to have seen Jesus while he was dead. When he saw this painting, he said it was the only accurate painting of Jesus that he's seen.

                    Contrary to some popular depictions, the pyramid builders were not slaves or foreigners. Excavated skeletons show that they were Egyptians who lived in villages developed and overseen by the pharaoh's supervisors.

                    Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.
