The Big Christmas Collaboration 2013 by Jazzy-C-Oaks The Big Christmas Collaboration 2013 by Jazzy-C-Oaks
Here it is, :holly: The Big Christmas Collaboration! :holly:

:pointr: Original Journal Entry: jazzy-c-oaks.deviantart.com/jo…

First started on December 13, 2013, this Winter break project was created in the spirit of giving and as a way to unite Christian artists in worship of the Lord Christ Jesus, using our individual talents and styles to work together as the body of Christ to form one big picture. I would offer to draw free chibi line art of either the receiver's self or one of his/her original characters, and the receivers were given an opportunity to color in their own gift art and contribute it to the project (and those who were unable to color their own gift art had theirs colored by volunteers).

Why chibi? Well, besides the simplicity of the art style (and the ease for me to draw it quick and well enough), the art style is both familiar and enjoyed by many for its cute and childlike appearance. Think of us as God's children! (Also, the word chibi is Japanese for "small".)

The project is not about quality but of unity. As part of the body of Christ, we are united in spirit by our faith in the Lord Christ Jesus--God Himself made flesh, who sacrificed Himself for our transgressions so that we can be free from the sin-bound fate that we deserve. God gave so much to all of us, including the earth and all of its splendor, and He also gave us the greatest gift of all: His free gift of eternal life, which everyone has the opportunity to receive.

And although we can never out-give our Lord, the greatest gift we can ever give in return is ourselves. That is what this project represents.

In remembrance of Yeshua (Jesus), who was born in the flesh to give his life so that we may live eternally in God's glorious kingdom. He is the true meaning of Christmas! :holly:
