From the Beggar's Bowl by nachtwulf From the Beggar's Bowl by nachtwulf
This is a sketch of my sole Exalted character (Exalted being the White Wolf RPG, specifically). An itinerant warrior-priest, he embodies a lot of opposites.

Someday I hope to get the chance to play him.

The tribal border on this is the perfect finish to a brilliant piece. The sahding and the details here just blow me away. The contrast between the heavily gauntleted hand and the oh so fragile rose speaks volumes for the subjects character. All in all one of my favorite :+fav:'s

Absolutely exquisite! I take it he's a Zenith then? He looks like a VERY cool character.

Actually, he's Dawn Caste. Kind of atypical, I know, but I thought it suited him.

That's cool. There's so much room for cross-over in this game anyway. ^.^ Have you gotten to play him yet, since you posted the pic so long ago?

Nope, still haven't managed to play. No one around me will run Exalted, sadly.

great texture in the clothing. I also really like the design around the focus of the drawing, and how it merges together with the liquid pouring out of the bowl. good work.

I love the texture in his clothing. It really looks like it's a heavy burlap cloth, or a linen. Very nice. ^__^

Sketch?
No way! That's awesome. Lovely lovely work!

The shading is done so well, I envy people who shade so well, expecially with cross hatching. I truely suck with that. The character design is awesome, makes me think of a video game or something cool like that. Also, I love the sort of feeling you get, cold and mysterious. The pose is simple, but excuted so well, ayeeeee. Just great job, great great!

Oh, one more thing, love how you have the bowl and the water (?) dripping out of it into the border. =) Kick ass.

Actually, originally, the bowl was supposed to have blood in it. Yeah, I know, ostentatiously gothy.

Hmm reminds me of Vincent, for well..obvious reasons. But it still has a good touch of originality. The clawed glove its very cool-lookin. the texture on the clothes is very neat. And the fold looks perfect. I especially love the way the liquid drips and turns into that tribal design. It amazing.

He's Dawn caste, and a sorcerer. Yes, I know Dawn aren't usually sorcerers, but I felt compelled anyhow.

Wow I love the use of line, shading and composistion in this peice. You have such a wonderful shading and texturizing technique. There are some interesting concepts, emotions and overall all edge to the peice that makes you just sit there and want to study it and try and know the story behind the character and the picture itself. All I can say is excellent job on creating such a wonderful and interesting picture! This is truly a pleasant and awe inspiring peice!

I really love the character design, especially the clothes. You gave the clothes great texture. You also did an excellent job giving the claw hand armor a metallic look and the tribal border is very superb.. Overall awesome job!

WOW!!

I got lucky with the recent submissions page, this time. Every one of them ROCKED...

this is... OFF THE PAGE :O If you know what I mean. It kicks major... it should be like, a top daily awesomeness addition. Because it's SO awesome.

I made a costume like that for the Rennaisance Faire, based on the Ringwraiths from Lord of the Rings... the texturing on the cloak is perfect, and I'm lovin' that border.

Hope you get plenty of comments on this, cause it certainly deserves it...
