shao-leen by MarkGart shao-leen by MarkGart
hello there !

i made this sometime ago, i always like to draw asian looking stuff, people, creatures heh, was trying with a shaolin priest in some peaceful warm environment, i enjoyed to paint this piece, was for fun and relaxation.Done in painter 7 with a touch of photoshop of course. oh yeah the name Shao-leen is written that way on purpose, its not a typo , sort of like a name or something heh bits me.

regards

shao-leen by *MarkGart displays awesome lighting effects to fit the mysterious atmosphere surrounding him. It's a beautifully detailed piece from the surrounding forest to the intricate designs on the character's clothing. ( Suggested by LilithLairPoetry and Featured by Subversive-imaginati )

He looks highly threatening to be a Shaolin priest! I'd be afraid to run into him in the woods. Look at all that hardware. Whoo!! But this is beautiful.

The only problem apparent is that he has a katana, and that's a japanese weapon, while Shaolins are chinese.

Other than that, great picture! [link]
Wow!

this is insane! I really thought foliage shadows are impossible to be drawn properly.... It looks so real, has a lot of details without looking overloaded.... I love all the beady thingies in the lower part of the drawing. and the vegetation is simply fabulous.
ok that's enough. fav :)

ps: shaolin doesn't have priests lol. They only have monks and they're all bald. lol :P just giving you a heads up with chinese history/culture :P that's more like a taoist priest/monk
