Insights About the Graphics

River of the Water of Life

The book of Revelation includes many end time visions. The River of the Water of Life represents the Holy Spirit who comforts and brings life. Many Bible quotes present the Holy Spirit as water with life and joy.

And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb (Revelation 22:1 KJV).

Artwork Preparation

The original image was created with 3ds Max and modified with Photoshop, then wrapped to the inside of a sphere. The animated river of life, with visual effects, was prepared with WebGL shaders. Shaders cause the water to shimmer as the user views the scene interactively.

Sharp Sickle

The sharp sickle of Revelation 14:15, from the Holy Bible King James Version, represents one aspect of end time tribulation. God with Jesus and the Holy Spirit keep His children from many difficulties.

And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe (Revelation 14:15 KJV).

Artwork Preparation

The animated rotating sickle was modeled, rendered, and mapped with 3ds Max. A low poly model was created to load quickly for online games and other rich interactive Web content with WebGL. Turbo smooth was applied to smooth the shape of the low polygon sickle, for improved appearance in the animation.
