why does Adam look like a monster?
Flockhart's avatar
Nobody knows what Adam looked like......... but are you sure this is a Monster? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder :)
Anyway I was playing with the whole good bad - angel/ devil - man in gods image/evolution thing.

Angels are said to have existed prior to Adam, Satan/ Lucifer, was already present in the Garden and angels were present at the creation of the world. Who 's to say gods devils and angels didn't all look rather less like John Travolta (Michael) and more like "monsters" LOL :D

well Lucifer usually manifests to look like christopher walken. God often times shows up as either Oprah or Dennis Hopper, and Michael was dressed up as Morgan freeman last time i saw him. as for Raphael? well 'e is fond of Dan Akroid. wait... hahahaha. you do catch the dichotomy of both Creator and created quite well.. but i dinna see Lilith.

on a side note the Morning Sun hated doing the code for Adam's AI.

Very visceral, yet, it's also quite plain overall, that is the colors give it a greyed out look overall, that's probably what you were going for, but I'm no expert by any means, just my own humble opinion.
