Hi, this is an Illustration that I did for a science and pop culture called "Superinteressante" published in Brazil in 2004 for an article about the different visions of Jesus in history and cultures.
My briefing was to illustrate the influences of Jesus ideas and philosophy on pop culture and at that time (2004) on the popular Matrix series. For that I did a mix of a classic Jesus interpretation with a classic Neo pose and look.
The hebraic code is just for visual effects and a link with the matrix code, and it doesn't mean anything.
Sketchs done in paper with pencils, Painter and Photoshop for the final rendering.
