Jesus loves us! :blahblah: But I really mean it (Click or download to enlarge).

This portrait is only made with "flat circles" on a black background. Every circle has a single color, a single tone and a single size. I placed each circle one by one. It's a time consuming method. One week of intense work for this portrait.

Please see the final portrait and some details here below. If you wish, you can also view this making of my portrait of Elvis Presley (video) to understand how I'm exploiting this technique with circles...

(My "Digital Circlism" series was recently featured in "The Telegraph").

Great work
well, all of your work is great
couldn't help but notice you didn't put WIP Jesus though
...that would've been a good title if you had shortened it
well, it would've definitely gotten more attention
