The Flying Spaghetti Monster by EthicallyChallenged The Flying Spaghetti Monster by EthicallyChallenged
As an artist and a Pastafarian, I deemed it necessary to heed the calling of his noodliness and commence work to bring His glory to the two dimensional surface.

And I have used the principles of composition, of values, of line, and chromas, and I have painted pixels in his image. Blessed be the FSM for giving us the rules of composition!

And I arranged the masses of light and dark, and behold, they pleased His noodly Eye. Blessed be the FSM for creating contrasts in value!

And I cooked spaghetti for visual reference, and rendered His holy form, guided by His Noodly Appendage. And I have consumed the spaghetti, and rejuvenated by this holy communion, I placed the highlights upon his noodles. Blessed be the FSM for creating light and shadow, so that we could see our pasta!

And I placed colours and pirate regalia upon the army of His deciples, and behold, I spent many a day putting details in their midst. Praised be the FSM for showing us the way, for to err is human, but to Arr is Pirate.

R'amen brothers and sisters, may the image of His Noodliness please thy eye.

I love this painting and respect it for showing that it's not only the god of Abraham that has inspired great master works. With this you show humanity that His noodlyness that keeps us from floating of this spinning world also inspires to great feats in art.
I've tried to get this wonderful piece of art put on my credit card. But the company wont let me. They blame infringement on copyright laws. I think they are suppressing pastafarinism. They fear that I'll spread the word as I pay my way through this world.
Enough ranting.
Love it and I hope His noodlyness blesses you with more inspiration. Be it with his direct intervention guiding your hand with one of his appendages. Or be it in a bottle of beer.

Thank you so much for these kind words! I worship our noodly Lord the best way I can...

I am appaled by the level of religious discrimination displayed by bankers. Indeed,I am starting to think that banker is the very opposite of Pirate! I have no doubt they shall see the error of their ways once they taste the foul, stale warm beer in the afterlife. If you should deem it worth yer while topursue the case further, I'd be happy to provide a letter granting permission to use the artwork so let me know.

His Noodly Appendage always guides my hand, whether it holds a pen, a paintbrush or a tankard. I shall down a bottle of beer to your well being this coming Friday. YARRRR!!!

You have the best combination of cuteness and creepiness in an FSM I have yet seen!

I also like how you handle the pirates -- well done!

So said the Flying Spaghetti Monster: "There shall be pirates" and then Piratebay.org was founded. All hail the Flying Spaghetti Monster and his noodle appendage :worship:

Lo, and he created light and shadow, and called it chiaroscuro. And it was good, for it kept his disciples from tripping in the darkness and stubbing their toes.

I have been touched by His noodly appendage.
Ever since, I have begun a quest to enlighten others. But I have to be careful and discreet, for the great FSM have left humans with free will, which allows them to resist spiritual advance.

May more people be touched by His noodly appendage and reach ultimate enlightenment. R'amen. :ahoy:

Specially the rainbowlike reflection on the sword is great, it give it a great feeling of real metall!
But i muss a bit scars, maybe it is just me, but i mean pirates should have many scars! ;)

Thank you! The reflection is supposed to be the parrot, I'm glad it seems metallic to you :) I agree scars would make them look cooler, I'll keep that in mind next time I paint something for the Church. Blessed be your Sauce for this suggestion.
