Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Matthew 4:2 (NLT)
For forty days and forty nights he ate nothing and became very hungry.


I have set this scene late in the day, with the sun descending on the left of the scene.

The sun provides the lighting for this scene, from the left. Since the Judean wilderness is a hot, arid desert I have used warm browns, oranges & greys to depict the direct lighting of this scene, with cooler blues & violet shades providing contrasting shadow areas.

Jesus the Christ, the small figure in blue is standing on an outcrop of rock, which is bathed in warm sunlight.

This scene is based on two photographs I found of the Judean wilderness.

Unlike the previous scene I decided to include clouds in the sky.

I have made the figure of Jesus small in this scene to contrast the vastness of the desert he was walking in, & to highlight his isolation from human contact, during this temptation period.
