This is not a negative interpretation of Jesus Christ of Nazareth -- the Son of God and the High Lord of the Cosmos -- in any way whatsoever!
This picture of Christ, though this is only an interpretation of one of his heavenly forms, is celebrating the glory of His power and appreciating the gift of His sacrifice for our sins -- receiving the gift of grace that we do not deserve.
Rest assured, Carlos-Quevedo understands the deep and awesome and ineffable power of the Most God High -- understanding the beauty and extreme deepness and splendour of the light!
Christians who view this depiction of Jesus Christ as 'negative' or 'blasphemous' really need to reevaluate their faith and read the bible more.
For in the book of Revelation, there are physical descriptions of the Son of God that portrays him in such a way that is so strange and surreal that a servant of God would be shocked by some of His heavenly images. In Revelation, when Christ walks through the throne room of God to grab and open a scroll that no one in all of existence is worthy to touch, he is described as a lamb having SEVEN EYES -- no doubt being a hybrid of man and a creation that he saw fit. Of course, that form is one of many of Jesus's transformations. Therefore, read your Bibles and appreciate this work of art. After all, this drawing shows that the light side isn't boring as people expect.
Agreed. He makes the light side complex.
Most typical artists always focus on drawing dark or demonic characters and making them look cool.
But Carlos is a unique exception--making efforts to craft some pieces of which beings of light and goodness have depth and intrigue to them, conveying them with great power that makes even dark characters pale in comparison.
This painting though shows incredible talent. A clear vision of something only you can see. I recommend the next one to be the fall of Lucifer from heaven. Your ability as a great artist with this type of color should show it very well.
There's nothing wrong with this piece of work. I am fully aware that this is only your interpretation of the Son of God, but, rest assured, this vision of His redemption speaks volumes of God's ineffable power.
Also, it shows the light side isn't plain and dull that the average person would believe. Therefore, please keep drawing the light side with your powerful vision of it. I'm tired of seeing cool demonic art with angelic art taking the back seat. But you-- your art style actually captures a deep and overwhelming essence of the light. In fact, the Bible describes angelic beings and aspects of God in such a manner that is very similar to your art.
Don't pay too much attention to Galati8825. He's just not used to seeing heavenly art conveyed so terrifyingly beautiful.
