Jesus is rolling to new heights

Crazy Tee Shirt Illustration

Sometimes you are sitting there and a weird and wonderful project comes across your desk. This was no exception to that rule. A client contacted me from Fiverr Pro and requested I do a posed image of Jesus in the actions of a recent TikTok video that went viral. The video showed a Mexican American skateboarding singling to Fleetwood Mac (You can see it here).

The challenge was on, and I took it up in a way to get a best out of this little works, and as I saw it it could to great or go south pretty quick!

“JESUS ON A SKATEBOARD” – BRIEF

The brief was to recreate as close as possible the image of the man skating on the skateboard drink an Ocean Breeze juice, while singing to Fleetwood Mac. Obviously some things had to change, but it had to be as close a representation as possible.

The figure had to be Jesus in the full red robe, which were the only primary conditions of the illustration.

THE CONCEPT

After I managed to find a good reference painting of Jesus in the desired outfit I applied it to the form of the skateboard rider. Used reference images of the TikTok video to get the angle of the drinking correct and then add some refinements. Once the client saw the initial  progress painting he requested that the figure held a load of bread. So I painted in a French stick, and added the minor touch of the hand holding some rosaries.

The rendering went well, and the painting didn’t take as much time as was thought. No major changes were made and the client was very happy with the end result.
