Herei: celebration by tooaya Herei: celebration by tooaya
lol, last minute entry. at least I think I met the deadline...

entry for SDL-NTM. Theme: carnival.
obviously took the festival meaning of the carnival, here it is...festival of lights, Lunar calendar Jan 15th.

Herei's lion-dancing. Normally lion dance's performed by two pepole, but for convenience sake I'm letting Herei play by himself. lolz

slacked off on background, again. .___. One of these days I need to force myself to sit down and paint just landscapes. >_>

texture <c> other pepole. -w-;

This is absolutely astounding! I love the perspective, and the fact that the background is detailed yet lax really helps you focus on the guy. It's definitely an amazing piece and very visually stunning.

Only tip is on the skin he needs tints of red and gold to "fit in" with the picture to show the reflections of the lighting around him (:

Great job on the lion! Really good design! Although I find that sometimes the lion would have string on the bottom lip like a beard, but wonderful job! :heart:
