Holy Family :: Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) Artwork

•  •

November 20, 2006

Below is copies of the artwork I did for Holy Family CRHP Team 7.  The originals are HUGE (on the order of 3-10 MB), so even the "large" copies you see when you click the images below are just glorified thumbnails!

I did some artwork for the Fall 2006 retreat. I created our main theme image by retouching and combining two images (you can find them here Shroud of Turin Education Project):  a 1935 painting by Armenian artist Ariel Aggemian inspired by the Shroud of Turin, and an image of the shroud itself.

I did all the retouching and effects (such as the halo) using The Gimp for Windows.

I created another image inspired by Jesus and the Lamb by Katherine Brown. I could have easily used the image from that site, but I didn't want to infringe on her copyright.  Also, I found at least three other pictures by artists with the same theme, so I incorporated the face from the above image into the theme using The Gimp, and used that as a model for my own ebony pencil drawing.

However, I wasn't satisfied with the drawing; I messed up the eyes. Its not bad, but since I had created the base image and it was better, I just used that.
