Cryptominati by egilpaulsen Cryptominati by egilpaulsen
Not even a thousand think tanks can break the ciphers of enlightenment..

The nominated, intellectual and influential practices the belief that everyone can be enlightened and guided towards divinity. Salvation and truth can not be reserved as secret information to some gnostic elite, but rather left to the individual. The key is private.

it also has some textures added in photoshop later. Some values where adjusted too. But the actual drawing and details were ink. It is very controllable with water.
