The Lord God, Father God character design sheet

The Lord God Father God character sheet.jpg
This is my character sheet, or design specification, for The Lord God, Father God. The purpose of this sheet is to keep a record of the attributes or characteristics of my drawing, so that I can draw a similar-looking cartoon in all future scenes showing The Lord God, Father God.

I first drew my version of The Lord God, Father God in May 2014, with the “Genesis 03 – The Fall of Man – Scene 10 – Expulsion” picture. I have drawn a representation of Father God in Job, Isaiah & Revelation. No doubt I will draw Father God in some other books of the Bible in time.

Although my style has changed a bit since that early cartoon, I try to maintain the same facial features, colouring and clothing style, so that the figure is recognizably that of The Lord God, Father God, even when months or years have elapsed between drawings. However, I realise that it is quite possible that I could draw different versions of Father God, since He could appear in an infinite number of ways to us! Indeed, if you look at the various representations I have drawn you will see father God with a long flowing robe train (in Revelation 07 – Great multitude in white – Scene 01 – Worshipping loudly), with golden clothing colours (in Genesis & Job), sometimes with a golden sash, sometimes drawn in white, etc.

I also realise that Father God tells us not to create a graven image (see Exodus 20:4-5 [1]). The Hebrew word translated “graven image” means literally “an idol.” This commandment came from the Lord God to prevent us from creating idols of wood, stone, metal, etc, and bowing down in worship of these man-made objects. This commandment refers back to the first commandment, “You shall have no other gods before Me.” In drawing an image of God I do hope that I have not “crossed the line” of the 1st & 2nd commandment. I don’t think I have, and certainly it is not my intension to create a “graven image”. In drawing scenes from the Holy Bible I simply
want to represent God the Father in an awe-inspiring, holy fashion. The glory goes to God the Father.

Exodus 20:4-6 (KJV)
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
