Garadan: Warrior Monk of Yevon by nachtwulf Garadan: Warrior Monk of Yevon by nachtwulf
Well, as the title says, Garadan is a Yevonite warrior-monk. He's vaguely based on Baralai, at least, mechanics-wise, but is pretty different as a character. I'm still not entirely sure I like the blue and white colorscheme, but I was /so/ not doing the traditional orange and green (bleah) or red and gray (too Auronish).

Done in pencil, colored in photoshop (including background). It was originally in Traditional largely because it looks more like a watercolor painting to me than anything else, but I ended up moving it to digital for the sake of safety. But it makes me wonder if that DiTerlizzi guy that White Wolf uses colors his stuff in PS or Painter...

He's cute. ^_^ I know it's been said before, but the amount of detail in this is amazing. I want that staff....

Oh, and I feel kind of stupid asking this, but who is DiTerlizzi?

He's the guy that does all those watercolor/pencil paintings for White Wolf. If you look up any of the Changeling kithbooks, he did the covers.

Ahh...I think the blue/white/purple scheme works particularly well for this^^ It really compliments his hair and eye color. Red mightmake the eye color look..christmas-ish. A combo with orange might look interesting..hmm...but this looks fine by itself^^ Awesome detail work, especially in the shoulder and the sash. Really gives it some nice texture to it.

Hmm..not sure if it's in the right category though. The definition that pops up says that it's the way the picture's made, not how it looks, that defines it's category...so anything that's made largely with the aide of digital help should be in the digital category. I'm only saying this cuz it'd be sad to see this auto-deleted by their zero tolerance policy.

Yeah, I think I know who you're talking about at WW. Such lovely work. Anyhow..good job! Lookin forward to more:D

This is awesome, the detail put in to this is great. The metal armour looks excellent, the textures on both his staff and the armor is very well done. Wonderful colors and shading. Very nice piece. :D

It does have a DiTerlizzi-esque feel to it-- especially in the arm. I love all the detailing on the metal!

I don't mind the colors. Though I'm not sure about the rainbow beads.
