My Testimony of Jesus Christ

Today and tomorrow, we'll be having fun doing Easter egg hunts with the kids.  But more than cartoon bunnies and candy, I think about Jesus and the hope we all have of life after death.  This morning, I watched this 3 minute video about Jesus and was very touched by it.  I have a firm faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and just wanted to take this opportunity to share my feelings...

Undead Rock Monster

2 squirrels fell in love and then died on top of a pile of rocks, creating a magical force that brought the rocks to life.  Now, the squirrel skulls (tangled in roots) coexist in a symbiotic relationship with the foul creature, roaming the desolate landscape in search of food.  Here again, I was just trying to surprise myself by coming up with some crazy creature.  I had a lot of fun.  2.5 to 3 hours in Photoshop.

Venus Bubble Zapper

Oh buddy!  This month we really get to have some fun in our class!  Chris encouraged us to let our imagination run wild and to try to surprise ourselves, creating random strokes and trying new design styles that aren't our normal go-to methods.  We were to create a character.  I just watched a really cool show on the web a few weeks ago called Cosmos (it's a high-quality revamp of an 80's space show).  You might enjoy it.  Anyway, my design became a deadly "plant" I imagine on the surface of Venus.  It's energy builds up within itself and releases in violent fury when a predator approaches (in this case, a toxic bubble).  1 hour, Photoshop.

High Society Grizzly

 I'm so thankful for the critiques of my colleagues on the Magic Box.
I feel much more confident about this version of the image.
