Drawing #7: Jason Sinoben

Religion is a pretty touchy subject for a lot of people, but I don’t think I’ll offend anyone if I say that there is no solid evidence proving (or disproving) the existence of some kind of deity in our universe. Throughout history, people have had many a name for an all-powerful, benevolent figure that looks after the human race: God, Allah, Waheguru, Elohim, Brahman, I’m not even gonna go into the polytheistic’ gods, that would take too long, but you get my point. There have been  a lot of people who’ve  worshiped a lot of different gods over time .

In western art there have been a lot of depictions of God; most famous of which is probably Michelangelo’s  painting on the Sistene Chapel

The Creation of Adam

In case you couldn’t guess, God is the one with the beard…and clothes. Clothes are a good thing to have.

Here’s a statue of Krishna, a central figure in Hinduism. Krishna’s been depicted in a number of different ways: a flute playing god-child, a prankster, a divine hero, or in this case, a dude dancing around without any pants on

Yeah. I’m not sure if that’s a small mini-skirt of a large belt, but that thing could probably afford to be a little bit lengthier.  Cool lookin dance though.

Anyways, This next piece of art from Jason Sinoben is a bizarre take on Deities.

Now I’m not completely positive, but I’m pretty sure that’s Lando Calrissian there.

Lando was a pretty classy dude. His story is one of friendship, betrayal, and redemption; you probably already know that though. If you don’t know who Lando Calrissian is, you should most likely drop what you’re doing and go rent the original Star Wars trilogy. The Prequel trilogy is good too, but in a mostly bad, yet hilarious way.
