-09/28/19- Most films and shows seem to portray Mary Magdalene as a former prostitute which is not accurate. In Luke 8:1-3 it says "Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out..." So think of a crazy woman on the streets:

-09/16/19- Side characters I'm creating for my animated short:

 

 

-09/12/19- Current concept of Yeshua (Jesus) in 3 different states. Some info that I discovered while designing him; for one thing Jesus DIDN'T HAVE LONG HAIR! If he did then 1st Corinthians 11:14 would not have been written which says "Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair it is a disgrace for him." Also, Jesus DIDN'T WEAR WHITE! This was distinctive, requiring bleaching or chalking, and in Judea it was associated with a group called the Essenes who followed a strict interpretation of Jewish law. The difference between Jesus' clothing and bright, white clothing, is described in Mark chapter 9, when three apostles accompany Jesus to a mountain to pray and he begins to radiate light. Mark recounts that Jesus' himatia (in the plural the word may mean "clothing" or "clothes" rather than specifically "mantles") began "glistening, intensely white, as no fuller on earth could bleach them." Before his transfiguration, therefore, Jesus is presented by Mark as an ordinary man wearing ordinary clothes, in this case undyed wool, the material you would send to a fuller. Anyways, this is still a WIP. As time goes on these character designs evolve to be more in line with scripture.

 

 

-08/25/19- Here's my current concept idea for "The Magi"(nothing is final yet). Most people don't realize that the Bible never mentions the number of Magi it only mentions the number of gifts. So there could have been 2 Magi or 12 Magi...we don't know. So, I've decided to follow what it says in "Esther 1:13–14" which states "Then the king said to the wise men who knew the times…the men next to him being…the seven princes of Persia and Media, who saw the king's face, and sat first in the kingdom." So I've created 7 Magi and 1 Servant who will represent the servant(s) who bring forth the 3 gifts. I wanted them to all have their own unique look to them so I've taken inspiration from movies, historical artifacts and my own imagination to come up with their looks. Hope I'm not offending any history buffs out there. One other thing, the Bible never mentions "camels" either. I did read somewhere that the Nabateans(Arabians) were famous for breeding Arabian horses during Jesus' time since they were adopting more of the Greek way of transportation. So if you've seen one of my shots of the magi riding horses instead, you'll know why.
