Scripture Picture image of Leviticus 19:4, now displayed on a San Francisco freeway billboard

My Leviticus 19:4 Scripture Picture can be found on a San Francisco freeway billboard.

I chose Leviticus 19:4 for this Scripture Picture because it includes a dazzling photo of a custom Ferrari that has sculptured text for the Scripture.

To appreciate that verse's potential impact, it's wise to read it in its context. Here is
Leviticus 19:1–4, NIV.

Various Laws

19 "The Lord said to Moses, 2 "Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: 'Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.

3"'Each of you must respect your mother and father, and you must observe my Sabbaths. I am the Lord your God.

4"'Do not turn to idols or make metal gods for yourselves. I am the Lord your God.'"

I respond personally to most posts.

Here's the starter image that I modified significantly. In Photoshop, after adding my Scripture Picture layer to the billboard portion, I put it into perspective. I then changed the high-contrast sky background to a much softer one that doesn't distract from the billboard's picture and message.

Leviticus 19:4. . . 'Do not turn to idols or make metal gods for yourselves. I am the Lord your God.'

Using the Myriad Pro font family, I sculptured the text extensively by giving it these Photoshopped characteristics: bevel and emboss, stroke, inner shadow, color and gradient overlays, and drop shadow.

My Custom Ferrari "La Ferrari" Creation
Fully Displayed on an SF Freeway Billboard

At the request of Cal State Auto Association, I provided it with full-size, high-definition image of my Scripture Picture for Leviticus 14:9. [Not] So far, more than a million passengers and drivers have seen and read this eye-catching billboard passage.

What makes a great billboard? Or more importantly, what can cause drivers to endanger their lives by reading a billboard while they're driving? A great billboard should be attractive, meaningful, and most importantly, memorable.

Inspired by the Spirit of Jesus, I'd sometimes come across a photograph that brought to mind a specific Scripture. I'd imagine how to uniquely edit that photo to maximize its impact before adding the text that I'd color and style. Utilizing more than twenty years of creativity using Adobe's Photoshop software, I'd sit down at my trusty Macintosh and fully orchestrate an artistic marriage of photo and text. Each new Scripture Picture, in my opinion, imaginatively underscores the power and purpose of its passage.

Having created more than four hundred fifty Scripture Pictures to date, I was inspired one day this month to imaginatively display one of my dazzling productions on a freeway billboard. I started with my original Scripture Picture of Leviticus 14:9, which you can see here.

Compare the before and after images (to the left and below). Skillfully using an assortment of Photoshop tools, I carefully applied my original creation (minus its caption) to the starter photo, replaced the sky background, and sharpened the details of the billboard structure. The finished creation below suggests convincingly that my Scripture Picture of Leviticus 19:4 had in reality been displayed attractively on a freeway billboard in San Francisco.

To create this authentic-looking "Scripture Picture Displayed on a Billboard," I opened my original production in Photoshop, compositing it onto a stock photo. After carefully changing the sky background, I was able to make my digital billboard creation look very much like the real thing.
