Summer in the Psalms by Emberblue Summer in the Psalms by Emberblue
This one was alot of fun to do. I think it might be a little bit too busy, but I still like how it turned out. Each figure was traced from a photo then converted to vector in Illustrator. My church used this artwork for a series our pastor did through the book of Psalms...during the summer time. :) "Psalms" are songs, thus the music notes. And most of them are praising God for His goodness and provision, which is why I chose to use figures with their hands raised in worship. This image came together very quickly and I give God credit for that.

The palm trees are a brush from: :iconkeepwaiting:
The doves are a brush from: :iconlittledarksprite:
The music notes are a brush from: :iconmissedyn:

Thanks so much guys! :D



P.S. I think that when the image is reaaaaaaaly tiny and far away, it kinda looks like a clown face. Scary.

This is stunning and the businesses works in this case. It's all flows well so it looks good. Business is bad when it distracts you this pulls you in! By the way I AM SOOOOOOOO READY FOR SUMMER!

Thanks. :aww: You are right, I guess I could see this as a t-shirt. A friend told me they could see it as a tatoo also. Strange to think someone would wear my art, lol!

Amazing. You're an excellent designer. I had an internship at my church doing graphic design work, so I really admire and appreciate this. I love it!
I think it's great that your church is using contemporary design, and that you get to use your talents for the kingdom. Looking at it makes me want to go to the sermon, so you did your job! The Lord is really using you through your gift. God bless you!

you've given me nothing to work with here..
no inappropiate surfing dudes
no camera wielding ninjas
no big headed little kids

*le sigh*

It looks really good and would make a great shirt, should you desire or have need of a shirt.

My sincerest appologies.

Well, you do have the music notes terrorizing the trees like a swarm of locusts. The guy in the center is kinda like a dictator or something. And those swirly/flourish things.....they look kinda devious to me...

Hey, I like the t-shirt idea. Thanks.

Huzzah!..you've opened my eyes..but rather than music note locusts I think they look like lovely musical note fruit trees...mmmmm..as for shirts you can hit up Zazzle or CafePress if you so desire
