The Mystery of the Seven Stars
20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
Somewhat More Like Unto the Son of Man
13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
Still working on this. It’s taking forever.
The main shape has to have 64 points, no more, no less, so it can morph with the other shapes I’ve made so far. I like the challenge of such limitations but it is, indeed, a limitation, especially for effects like flowing beard and hair. I’d like to make the robe flow too, but I don’t have enough points.
Like Unto the Son of Man
This is supposed to be “one like unto the son of man” with “a sharp twoedged sword” coming “out of his mouth”. However, the sword looks a lot like a necktie. I dunno, all my research of this vision shows me no clever solutions to the sword-out-the-mouth deal. Some Jesii look like they’re holding the sword in their mouth the way a dog holds a bone; others just have a sword floating somewhere near the face. I’m trying to limit the design to 64 points so it can morph with the other designs (lion, lamb, cathedral, rose windows, etc.). And yes I’ll add the 7 stars in his hand and flaming eyes and stuff later.
