Hebrews 11 Character designs: Round one

I'm starting work on a new cartoon on Hebrews 11 & 12: Heroes of faith! So I need to draw lots of OT characters. Here's a first pass:

Right now I'm thinking that Cain, Abel and Enoch need something a bit more ancient-looking. Animal skins and stuff. They were living in primitive times after all!

The Big Buyback

I made this short comic a while back (2008?) - it was printed in an anthology of Christian comics. I still like these characters. I wanted to show what the idea of redemption might look like these days.
1 Peter 1:18 - We were redeemed from our old life not with cash, but with the life of Jesus.

On a side note, I had a flatmate who would sell his stuff at the Cash Converters to pay the rent and then buy it back after his next pay day. A very expensive way to live!
Anyway, let me know if you'd like to see more comics.

Two short episodes from the life of Abraham.

Abraham Tested: his trial at Mt Moriah to sacrifice his son (Genesis 22:1-18).

Moses toons

Miriam & Moses.
Baby Moses is in trouble! Pharaoh attacks the Hebrews. Miriam help Moses escape. Animated in Flash, as usual. Narration from Exodus 2:1-10.

Moses & the Red Sea.
The exodus epic! Well the bit after the plagues. After the Passover the Pharaoh lets the Hebrews go, but quickly changes his mind. The narration is Exodus 14:5-21.

Some Jesus toons

Demons and Pigs.
Jesus goes to cure a man of his demon infestation. But where will all the demons go? This is a short cartoon I made for the Max7 website. They gave me a selection of Bible verses to work from and this one from Luke 8:26-39 jumped out at me.

Lazarus raised.
This is my second Jesus film. The narration is taken straight from John chapter 11 in the Contemporary English Version. It’s pretty much a straight re-telling of the story of Jesus resurrecting Lazarus to life again. Narration by Matt Wills. I hope you enjoy it!

Daniel and the king's dreams

This is a video clip to POD's 'Sleeping Awake'. Based on Daniel chapters 1-6. I liked the idea of the song, but felt it had drifted from it's original meaning after it featured in the Matrix film. I tried to animate what I felt the band intended when they wrote/ performed it.
