    beautiful work as always. the glass prints are genius. one thing kind of surprises me though, and this is in no way a criticism, you went with the stereotypical caucasian Jesus... After seeing the title and then the image there was a split second of "aww, he didn't do anything with that?". of course I immediately forgot about it when i started pouring over the insane amount of detail in your work. Still for some reason i expected Android jones' Jesus to be a bit different...

    With all due respect to the poster who felt more avenues could have been explored on the theme of Jesus's steretyped caucasian nature, remember Android's "Catholica" artworks are composites of the rich catholic and christian imagery available rather than reimaginings. They combine the imagery in new and original ways, but its more an exploration and affirmation of the material than a reconstruction. With such material of course Android builds astonishing images, and with no doubt I proclaim him an artistic visionary equal to that of previous titans like Frazetta or (cliches ahoy!) Picasso, who is taking the digital art movement away from being a convenience to being an artform in its own right through which new ideas impossible on physical paper can be visualized.
    The image in question is no less one of the greatest Jones images so far, topped only in my mind by the Karmapa and Divine Mother.

    that is a point you have Mordus, i admit that i didnt know about the series or the theme being portrayed, i only saw the piece alone and didn't get the background info. but i was def not questioning his technical skill or the emotion in the work, both of which are incredible.

    Your portait of Jesus is absolutely amazing. I really can't stop looking at it. really inspiring stuff man. It's art like this that helps to keep me pounding away at my Wacom and CS3 till my eyes bleed to hope to achieve similiar brilliance.

    Happy new year!

    And great update to your website too!

    some small things though that (in my opinion) could make it that little bit better:

    1. center your container in the browser window. I personaly dont like watching websites that stick to the left side of my browser window.
    this can be done by putting all you html elements in a container div so actually:

    HTML Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="container">
    
    <!--- Place your html here -->
    
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>
    and then in css you apply the width you want for your website, with a margin auto:

    HTML Code:
    #container {
    width: 500px; /* the width of your website comes here, in this example 500px */
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    }
    2. I don't like the background image at the top being cut off, think it would be better if it ran through untill the real end of the image. Not sure why it is cut off like that, i should watch your css more closesly to find the reason.

    3. avoid inline css code in your html, it's not bad bad, but html is normally used for content only, the styling completely goes into css.

    4. make your header image clickable so it leads back to the homepage


    But in total the website is great! its in my bookmarks

    Happy 2010, may it be an inspiring year for all of us!

    Hey Andrew, I really like your work and I see that a lot people do here. However I have only one bit of critique, It would be nice to see you develop some new brushes or brush with some different shapes to replace the triangles in your art, as far as I know the triangles might have some significance for you maybe they represent something specific for you however I've seen a lot of your work and the absence of triangles for a few pieces would be a breath of fresh air and a challenge for you to maybe update your brush library without losing what makes your work your own. Just a thought.

    I love this so traditional spirit of the artwork closer to Jean Delville and Symbolist movement.

    This year i chose Jesus as my subject matter, after several image searches i realized there was a place within the digital akashic record for a new interpretation of this global avatar.

    Aloha Andrew,

    That piece is beautiful. Spend more analog time with Jesus... Does this mean I have your blessing to print a Giclee of that image for my bedroom wall? Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Amazing as always!

    I'd love to locate a tutorial specific to the treatment your using in some of these where the piece has a lithographic effect similar to a spirograph. I don't know what else to call it, but if anyone has some links I'd sure appreciate it!
    You can call me sir..

    Oh god, your stuff crashed my computer. A little more consideration next time? :/
    Okay, so is this all manually painted or do you use extra tools (besides dodging, levels, basic things - more like brushes, stock, references etc.)

    All I can say is truly amazing. You've been a huge inspiration for me and right now I'm going through college learning the foundations of art just hoping that with enough time put in and skill learned that I can make such incredible pieces like these.

    JeromeFoster-- for the transparent prints i do set alpha chanels to communicate with the printer machine where and where not to lay down ink



    Hive Mind- i organize my patterns and papers using the pattern mover and paper mover function in painter 11, i create folders with specific types pf patterns and load them separately as to not overload the library
    -i work in the default color profile
    -i use several filters and plugin ins within photoshop to create the final textures-

    thanks man, miracles happen, we live in a mysterious world beyond our comprehension.

    Giorge- no i do not use the Diasec process, the printer they use is bigger than my van.

    nicolas, thank man, great to see you and your girlfriend in Berlin

    steven6. i do focus on selling the higher quality prints and originals in galleries. value is in the eye of the beholder, as a digital artists its up to the artist to be creative with their methods, i use several kinds of techniques to ensure that the final product is a valuable and original object.

    Liffey - yea it was an afterthought and homage to the Norwegian spiral that was happening as i painted the image.

    Silent stander- that's a fair question, I have depicted jesus as different races in the past, my goal was for the symbol of jesus to come through , it was created for a western audience, just like the bible is translated into English so its readers can easily digest in and receive the transmission, my bigger dilemma was whether to depict jesus as a human or an alien.

    Mordus, thanks for your feedback, i could paint Jesus every day and nevercome close to his true nature. ill try another version next year, i do agree i see digital art as less of a convenience and more of a new portal for creative expression and we are all privileged to have this opportunity

    Surion

    thanks for your feedback, ill pass it along to my web designer,

    madpencil- i do agree, i just created a entirely new brush and pattern set for corel painter that i will be putting into use soon ,there are shapes like triangles that i do belive are an intrinsic aspice of our visual reality that will always have a place in my visual vocabulary


    sinewavezero- you out of all people have my blessing to make a pritn for your wall-

    memo213 time to upgrade your bandwidth-0

    thanks for all your coments and compliments and thoughts, i really enjoy reading them, looking forward to creating some new work to share, hope to see some of you at a live event soon

    Really awesome stuff. I really enjoyed looking through it all. Thx for posting.

    Excellent as always. Thank you for the update.

    I'd be nice to see you branch out a bit more from the "woman's face with interesting textures/design elements" motif. I know you can. I know you want to. Peace.

    traveler.

    I know what you mean, keep in mind your talking to the guy that drew 1000 of his own faces so im no stranger to getting attached to a theme, the frontal faces are part of an ongoing series whos final product will be a series of lenticular holographic prints that dissolve between the faces, so its still a gimmick, but it will look really cool in the end, i promise.
