Commentary

Rather than bunnies or eggs, I decided to go with a theme drawn from the religious side of the holiday. Good Friday inevitably reminded me of the Crucifixion and led to this image -- a view from the rear of the Cross looking past the crown of thorns. The cross was constructed of polygons filled with a wood pattern. I made a prototype thorn with the pen tool, then applied a bevel layer style and altered the shape and orientation of the individual thorns. The hair is one of Nagel's brushes. The sky/halo is a custom radial gradient. The overall look is poster edges, which I seem to be using a lot lately.
