Golden Hour Monk by slipled Golden Hour Monk by slipled
Okay, i can say i really learned a lot doing this artwork!... first, was really hard to decide what to do, and i spent at least one week only thinking about, and never came to my mind a clear visual of the piece... so, reading some books, an idea of a scene and colors came into my mind and finally chose the monk to fit this idea! just the opposite way of creative process i usually have!... and here's the piece with a very close look of what i was thinking!.. not that close because of my (so far) knowledge limitations! =)

well, as usual, i used my loose way of painting, without trying to lose the depiction of the character!
all comments and critics are more than welcome!!!... hope you guys like it!!! =D

Okay, so the winners for the Fan Art Contest are in and I see this work hasn’t really made the cut. Just at a general glance, it would’ve been bloody difficult to pick the winner out of this lot, as the quality of all the artwork is incredible, yours included.

 

Your monk character is a labour of love, from the glowing staff to his intricately-woven dress and spiritual pose. He really sets off the scenery of snow and ice, which needless to say, has that beautiful softness and crystalline look to it respectively. (Can’t help but like soft snow, even if I get attacked by it.)

 

The shining sun over the mountains and small town in the distance completes what in my view would’ve been a worthy contender for the title, amongst a premium selection of artwork already on display in this contest. Awesome job and well done for creating such a strong piece of work! :)

Congratulations! Amazing fan art, wish you luck! I have one question, that style of tattoo on the arm has a name or it is totally original?
