    Vorace thats what I call colors *_____* very spiritual and surrealistic. I see you made the head smaller I still think his left hand (right side of the image) looks a little short. Great piece!

    There are so many kind of monks, like said the word Monk is from the Greek monos (alone). Basically referring to a person who does not have sex, trying to find God or Liberation this way...

    Some different kind of Monks.

    Christian monks, Roman Catholic Monks. Anglican Monks, Vaishnava monks, and Buddhist monks, Sadhu's etc...

    Heres something on a group of Shaolin Monks.

    "On 21 July 1553, 120 warrior monks led by the Shaolin monk Tianyuan defeated a group of pirates and chased the survivors over ten days and twenty miles.[16] The pirates suffered over one hundred casualties and the monks only four."

    oh, and maybe we should enforce a rule that it's forbidden to add the round prayer beads to your design. Just a weird thought, but it's such an easy tell.

    great works so far guys you are all really inspiring here is my sketch i want to make something different here and make him more cartoony with exagerated elongated limbs as i was doing it he reminded a lil bit of dhalsim from sf2 so i gave him a more african feeling rather than asian hope thats okay by the rules

    I'd like help improving his hands.. 'cause otherwise, I'm quite happy with this. And I usually fail epically at feet. lol. Would someone be willing to redline them for me or something? I did use a reference for his hands.. =/ They still suck.

    This is my starting point. Wanted a dynamic effect and protecting the child places the monk in the right context I think.

    DIMAGYAN Nice sketches man .Second one is my fav. Nice pose too.

    Poshspice That`s a good start. Those lines hide some high skills. I like the second scene especially the facial expressions.

    feifeicreatePretty nice start. Now you should work a little bit more on the perspective and line.

    Wiggers Nice. I hope you come with another nice entry. I love the piece from "Dark Night Villains".

    Skorpi Nice start. I think the first sketch matches very good the topic.

    Nightblue Wow , that`s a really powerful monk. Nice scene.

    Vorace This looks very nice. I like the pose and the colors. Can`t wait to see it finished.

    MJ_Alcazar Your sketches show a lot of imagination. Try to correct a little bit the perspective issues. Don`t forget that lines have different intensities. Try to use some more pencils , like 3-4b.

    Ladydove7 I like the character .

    Pixeltuner Wow another powerful monk. Looks a little bit like Aladin`s Genie. Nice arms. The neck is a little bit exaggerated. I`m curious how it will look at the end.

    Mimmer Nice monk. Be more careful with the lines.

    Agnostes I like that pose !

    tomwaits4noman Nice scenes man! the sketches are very nice. Especially the upper one. The guy with the moon on the back.

    jpedro Sooo nice drawings there man ! One of the best on this topic.

    MarkWinters Nice mood. Hope to see more details on that piece.

    Eerin The first one is so nice. Nice pose and expression of the character!

    Ceyface Heyy, are you using mouse? If you don`t have a wacom you should draw the piece on paper with pencils. You will feel much better and you will be more creative. Practice Practice Practice ! as you said.

    septomin I like the pose and the attitude of that monk.

    Juan Caruso Nice facial expressions !

    Venger Great scene. Try to put more details on the monk , to obtain the "focus" on him.

    DECYPL The environment is very nice. Try to focus more on the character. Nice colours and scene. The head could be a little bit bigger.

    Daniel.C Very good sketches. I like the second one. Nice sense of perspective.

    Giordan I love the face of the character man. But I must say you cand work a little bit more his left hand and the legs. The positioning of them isn`t that natural (like my english :lol: sorry).

    bluemoon Good start but we want to see more !

    Kaizer The sketch shows you have imagination. Because we have a character challenge I say you could make a better pose. We want to see the whole character. Not only the profile. As I said upper , the line must have different intensities. Study more proportions and anatomy.

    Casandra Beautiful portrait of your monk.

    Arthemis IX Great colours and character. I suggest you to draw the ground , because he must stay on something. The wind effect is too obvious.


    Phiew , while watching your designs I made a quick sketch of my monk.

    Hey guys,

    My first try here at the CHOW. and Damn! some amazing ones already... The red sonja was awesome too.


    Ok. My idea is to have the monk taking a girl away from a hellish place. war and savages. He takes her under his cloak, that forms the blood moon symbol as an aura of protection. Nobody touches them.

    I am still not certain on his design but I am certain on the environment so Ill focus on that a bit more before resolving the main characters.

    Ok. cheerios

    Mario

    out with the bald, in with the old. Doodled on some costume ideas while on the train en made a decent linesketch out of one of them. Scanned, valued, bit of colour etc. Kept the pose more or less, only this one looks more 'sacred'. I looked up the Japanese characters for Blood and Moon btw, so they will eventually end up on the banner instead of the placeholder glyphs.

    I'm thinking of working up something based on the above WIP. If I've still got access to the net over the next few days that is.

    Some really promising ideas posted so far.

    thanks for the feedback!

    poshspice: those sketches are great! the second and third specially, love the narration on them. i think the market/busy street is a reflection of the brief and (again) this type of characters...is an ideal shot to introduce the monks to the viewer as if he/she meet him in the street, and also relate the character to the everyday activities...so im guilty too of making the more evident take on the subject, i think...
    anyway please go with the one in the market if you want, your sketch is more interesting than mine. waiting to see your final!

    feifeicreate: i like the costume and the painted moon, keep an eye on the forms and the anatomy(specially in the head)

    Wiggers:very nice...it really looks like a monk.

    skorpi:nice sketches, i like the design of the character in the left low corner.

    Nightblue:thats a big agressive monk!fit well the desription of the breef in my opinion specially the vigilante rol.

    Vorace: very good, i like the feel of the image. im not quite sure if his head is too big or his arms are too short,thou.

    MJ_Alcazar:nice take on the subject...looks like a monk. don't worry too much on the details, work first on the structure of the figure, once you have that part the rest is just fit the details a cording the body. watch some references or even better yourself in a mirror, do some acting to feel the pose you want to do. hope it helps.

    ladydove7:i like th asymetrical take on the costume, just watch the anatomy and the perspective.

    Pixeltuner: i like the second character.try to not crop the feet, make the entire figure or an "american plane", works better in my opinion.

    mimer:i like the situatuion and the serenity feel. watch the feet position(you did the left foot ae right and viceverse)

    agnostes:a more vigilante look...try to add something that tell to the viewer that he is a monk.

    tomwaits4noman:i like the third sketch

    jpedro: interesting ideas, i like the small sketch on the top of the page

    MarkWinters:great athmosphere. i like the statue idea.

    Eerin:second one definitly!...i like the feel and movement of the figure.and the little details that tell he is a monk are very well

    Ceyface:nice sketch.try to not hide his face, hands and feet. face and hands are extraordinary elements to give personality to a character.maybe working in pencil and then block in colours?

    septomin: very nice! i like the fact that he is an o more older monk.it has a distinctive attitude in the gesture.

    cmalidore: i like the costume of the second sketch

    Juan Caruso:nice heads, probably adding eyes could help to clarify that he is human.i like number 8.

    Venger:very nice scene

    DECYPL:very mystical i like the blue energy(?)

    DanielC:very good sketches...probably you are right about been a bit off topic, maybe adding something less violent like bags, books...anything that bring the idea of a monk or at least a non warrior wanderer? the last one has a nice design

    Giordan: buen diseño, es verdad que luce como un personaje emparentado con dhalsim, pero cambiando algunas cosas del traje y el rostro(especialmente el cabello podrian solucionar eso.

    bluemoon:nice skecth

    D.Labruyere:i like his costume and the details.very nice colours

    Kaizer:nice idea.besides the hand, the principal thing that lack your character is the curvature of the torso...all the body in your character is in a straigth line.
    the head also don't fit well in the body.you need more projection on the back of the head.hope it helps

    Casandra:nice idea, remember the 3/4 rule for the final

    Arthemis IX: i like the pose and colours.

    RevoLverZ:nice sketch, is not very clear in some areas(like the right arm), nice pose. yeah, probably another expression could fit better the subject and the feel of your piece.nice update

    haroldfay:nice scene, i like the details of the pile of books

    marioucci:nice mood and background

    Funkyskull:interesting, try to show more of the character

    Thujon:nice sketch.the face don't match the head(is lower and smaller)

    Pragmatist:looks like he is in some battle(the blood on his mouth and the position of his body.nice sketch.

    Jason Snair:very nice.

    thesaint:interesting aproach about the tatoo on his face.

    vaughany_boy:looks nice.watch the perspective(the monk position don't match the roof perspective)
