    Chow 123 :: VOTING :: The Blood Moon Monk

    FINALS ONLY
    -=ROUND 123=-
    -=BLOOD MOON MONK=-

    -------------
    Chow 123 :: VOTING :: The Blood Moon Monk
    NOT SURE ABOUT THE GUIDELINES? CLICK HERE!
    -------------------

    DESCRIPTION
    The Blood Moon Monk:

    A strange figure with no particular religion or philosophy tied directly to him. He travels the world in search of knowledge - both of himself, and of the universe. To him, to be is to know, and only in knowing there is being.

    He seems to only wander into populated areas just when there is someone who needs to be 'taken care' of. This be a young man who needs only to be set back on the right path, or someone - something - much more dangerous, for which only lethal force can be used. Somehow, this strange monk just seems to always be in the right place at the right time...

    Notes:

    - He is almost a vigilante, but he has his own set of rigid rules and morals that he abides by - he is first and foremost a monk, second a man.

    - We're looking for a more eastern/Asian feel on this one, but don't let this limit you.

    - The Blood Moon is his emblem. You aren't required to use it, but keep it in mind.

    ------------

    ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
    1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
    2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
    3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE? (reserved for rounds with a large amount of entries).

    --------------------

    SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
    1: You must submit ONE full sized image.
    2: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your entry.
    3: Use the Standard format (Below);

    Chow 123 :: VOTING :: The Blood Moon Monk
    PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
    SAVE YOUR FILE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

    Chow##_Nickname
    example: "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg"

    THE REST IS EASY:
    1: No comments before poll is set. They WILL be deleted with utmost malice and petty grumbling.
    2: Sit back and enjoy the show. BYOPC (Bring your own popcorn)
    3: Good luck to all.

    The Blood Moon Monk

    I really pushed myself on this one, I think I improved marginally with ps working on it.

    Blood Moon screamed a bit of occult to me...

    Hope you enjoy!

    Nice entries so far. Here's what I have. The pole the monk is holding has two functions , it can be used for battle, and then you can retract the top part to use as a cane for walking long distances.

    Blood Moon Monk

    I was going for a post-apocalyptic themed militaristic monk. Really enjoyed myself with this one. Cheers everyone, keep it coming.

    The flower child of a martian man and an human woman, 300 year old Kataki is the sole survivor of his species, the last of the martians. (I'll write some more later)

    Well, black and white will have to do. Yes he does not look young, years of cutting himself to appease his God have took there toll. Great work everyone!

    great work everyone i thought of the figures in stain glass windows for some reason hence the pose and symmetry

    I had the idea that he purifies sinner with flames that he conjures from his hand

    = I guess its years of catholic guilt coming to surface with this chow.. anyway was fun

    As my first time to actually participate here, this was a lot of fun.

    My monk isn't quite as showy. He is off in solitude, in between "taking care" of things.
