I'm sure Yahweh will appreciate my efforts. :)

All joking aside, I think I've done pretty well with this piece, considering I used only 7 colours (that didn't involve any greys); something I usually don't do.

 I can't help it but blame myself, as I caused the confusion, but if you say so.

Really? I was feeling that the image was quite cluttered, but then I think, perhaps you're right, I am trying to depict anger here after all, and leaving the background empty like this would create a rather relaxed feeling [to the background]. 

A booger you say? Perhaps.

 This is what happens when Biblical topics come up, I can't help but ramble or debate. Just ignore me in the future!

On topic, the background is a little empty and he needs a booger.

I agree with you, and I guess that there's not much point arguing over if "Yaweh" is a name or not anyway, I even used it as a name myself , and in itself was used as a name in the old testament.

But I do get the sense that you thought I was arguing that Yahweh is not a name but a title? In which case, wasn't it all, I was pointing out in my first reply to you, quite impetuously to be honest, that it might have been a word, which, was used as name; which also had a resemblance to a title (and looking back at it now, isn't true).

I'm really sorry for any confusion I might have caused.

 That's a correct translation, but a name having meaning doesn't make it a title. Lots of people are named Michael ("Who is like God?"), but Michael is not a title. Most names have meaning behind them, even if the meaning has become obscured.

 C'mon man.

That cracked me up a little too much than it should.

Night (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/21/2013 09:03

 I am not absolutely sure about it, but I think that it is disputed as to what it accurately means, it generally means "I am that I am".
Another thing that I guess would be useful to note is that etymologically, it does seem to bare some relation to such words that mean "to create" or "to be" (personally, I think that it resembles the Hebrew word for "to be" more than anything else).

Haha, thanks.

Yeah, the hair really makes this work I think.

Isn't it exactly a name? Adonai is a title (Lord), Abba too (Father), but YHWH is his particular name. Also the storm god imagery was appropriated from Baal, which incidentally is a title (Lord) that became a name (Baal-Hadad -> Baal).

Just so this post isn't completely unrelated to your art, I'll end this by saying that his expression is fantastic.

Oh, I wasn't aware of that.
I did, orginally, want to add lightining in the background, using the light blue colour in my palette, but decided that it wouldn't be fitting, and that it would make the picture more cluttered than it already is.
I do like the idea you suggested though. 

Besides that, I feel like I have to say that I wasn't refering with the name "Yahweh" specifically to the old testament, but the new testament as well, as I don't see a reason for his name to change (which, in itself isn't exactly a name when you think about it, but rather a word close to a title in biblical Hebrew).

 lool nice

More importantly, the Yahweh of the Canaanites originally was a war god, which explains all the exploits in the OT pretty well I think.

This picture is pretty funny.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 7/20/2013 17:50

 Not quite as Semitic as I imagined him. Would be cool if the wild strands of hair were lightning, since Yahweh was a storm god.
