A model I did of Jesus in response to the request here on BlendSwap. Modeled in MakeHuman, then rendered in Blender Cycles with hair and beard particles added. There is no rig. Note: Although I guess it isn't technically part of the license, I would greatly appreciate it if no one would use this to create graphics or artwork that speaks out against or profanes Jesus or Christianity in any way. Thanks!

    Sorry but this doesn't look like Jesus. This model looks Asian. A common misconception is that Jesus's has white skin. Arab's have darker skin. Furthermore, Jesus's nose is long and narrow, eyes are closer together, he is also much skinnier.

    That's probably true. However, sometimes the image people have in their minds is different from the actual thing. I made this to fulfill the common ideal, not to be exactly historically accurate.

    First, Jesus was not of Arabic descent but Hebrew. His skin was probably darker than we imagine but not much different than Jews of today. Especially taking in account the Jewish tradition of his time to not marry outside of his people.

    2nd, don't use the Shroud of Turin as a representation of the portrait of Jesus. Scientific testing allow us to at least be skeptical about its authenticity.

    3rd, Jesus had probably short hair if he existed. St Peter or St Paul in one of his writing declared himself against men wearing long hair like women. If Jesus had long hair, then he would not have denigrated it in his writings. Also, Jesus was an educated man and would have probably talked Greek fluently like a lot of educated people of his time. He may as well have adopted their short hair fashion. He may also have shaved regularly. Don't forget that poors were often afflicted by lice and the only way to get rid of it was to shave hair and beard. Since he lived among them, it would have been the sensible thing to do (to shave). Don't you believe for an instant that Jesus was just a poor carpenter. This is an erroneous translation of Arameic language. His father was more like an architect than a carpenter. He also brought Jesus to Egypt for an undetermined amount of time, where he could have received an excellent education. He could read and write, something most of his contemporaries could not.

    4th, there are no descriptions of Jesus in the New testament, so we don't know for sure what he looked like. All we can do is look at his contemporaries and extrapolate.

    Description is in old an new testament. daniel ten and five - six, revelations one and fourteen - fifteen. I wish someone would make the true image. that would be pretty cool. he was a so called black man with hair like wool. He looked like he was burned in a furnace. (very dark like wesley snipes with fully gray/white hair and beard. his eyes were red because he drank wine genesis forty-nine and twelve) I happen to see this and read the comments and thought it would be great to list the location of Jesus image and hope that someone would create it.

    That is such a cool description! I didn't even know about those verses in Genesis. I feel like I have to go and make that model now. Thanks!
