I'm trying to paint Jesus and I'm using Desmond from Lost as reference and I can't seem to make it less "Desmondy" lol any tips on how to make it look more like Jesus?

This is my sifi piece at the tight sketch phase. It's on the movie, Gattaca. Really good movie, starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. For those of you who havent seen it, it is set in the future where humans are classified as Valid or Invalid dependent on their medical analysis when they are born. When a baby is born it is analysed and the doctors are able to determine the exact date and time it will die along with all other medical issues the human may have throughout it's life. Dependent on whether you are an Invalid or Valid determines what kind of job and in turn, life, you will have. i.e astronauts are usually in perfect predictablitly they will have a healthy life in contrast to someone who is predicted to have heart problems will live his life as a janitor. This movie is about how an Invalid tries to become a Valid. Very kool movie, check it out.

All that being said, crits are much appreciated!!!

open assignment suggestions

I'm doing cool looking old dudes and a funky old school boom box for the open assignment from Pratt's class. I'm going bright and candy colored for this one but keeping in mind colors that work alright. Any suggestions for the colors I should use for the boom box and the shirts? [I'm gonna go with hints of lime green in the boom box to compliment the magenta]

Three illustrations

This first one is about the terminator gene that was developed to prevent plants from producing seeds. I thought of female plants cutting and tying each others fallopian tubes.

This article talked about how Rwanda is building its country's economy by weaving baskets and selling them to Macy's.
This last one is about Josef Mengele, a Nazi scientist who was on a mission to make the perfect race out of twins. He fled to a small town in Brazil where he continued his experiments on twins and now, one in every 5 pregnancies in that town, are twins.
Heres a three hour figure painting from thursday's class.
