Character sheet

The 12 Disciples (updated version) Click to see larger.

There are reasons for most of their appearances - some very tenuous, but it helps to get variety. I'll post proper character sheets for each of them some time - this is just a sneak preview. 

I've never actually designed all the disciples before. In my regular work, I have a set of clothes/hairstyle/facial features I always use for Peter, John & Matthew, and the others are just drawn out of my head (if you counted all the different ones I've drawn, they would be more than 12!). But none of them have any character. But for these pictures, I researched what was written about them, and made them into real people.



You may use these pictures for personal use (e.g. a Sunday School class). Please do not publish them in any form, sell them, post them elsewhere on the internet, add them to an image library or do anything else with them. Thanks!

If you would like individual figures, email me: kirsty(at)lampbiblepictures.co.uk or leave a comment below. (Replace the (at) with an @ sign)



Edit: I have now done a Jesus figure too. 



Edit II: These pictures are part of a PowerPoint:

I love the picture of the 12 disciples and if it's o.k. would like to use it for a sunday school game. But it would be very helpful to know their names. Who's who???
thanks

Certainly - as long as you're not publishing it.

Glad you like them!

I'll email you individual pictures of each, which will be more useful.

They are, from left to right:
Simon Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, Simon the Zealot, Thaddaeus (aka Judas son of James), James son of Alphaeus, Judas Iscariot

Hello
I just started teaching my religous ed class today! I am teaching the 4th graders. I was wondering if I could get the individual pictures of each disciple? B&W or Color would be fine.. my email is: ggjuarez79@hotmail.com

Kirsty said...

I'm glad so many people are finding these useful!

These are awesome! Do you have Jesus to go along with these? I printed them on photo paper and taped them to craft sticks for circle time, we also used them as passengers in the fishing boats we made last week. I'm working on Bingo cards for this Sunday's lesson and wanted to use a pic of Jesus for a "free space"... if not I will figure something else out. Thanks so much for sharing! The kids love them :)

Kirsty said...

I don't, but someone else asked for one a while back, too, so I think it would make sense if I did one.

I do have a pencil drawing, so it shouldn't be too difficult to ink & colour.

I'll post another comment when I get it done.

Lots of good uses you've put them to!

I really like your illustrations! I would like individual pictures of the 12 disciples. I want to decorate my classroom walls with these. Also, are the power point lessons available in another form? I have a small class but would like to use these with my lessons.
