Worried Monk by humon Worried Monk by humon
My site [link]

I've just started working on a comic about monks and demons, and this is a test picture. I don't like how young he looks, so the character is most likely not going to look like this. He will however have that kicked-puppy look for most of the story.

Usually I would be using photos for backgrounds out of pure laziness, but in this case it's actually supposed to make the characters look misplaced. In this case I used a picture by ~LaraGirlySkull but I'll go out and take my own photos for the actual comic.

Besutiful scene! And he looks really worried... poor monk! He seems scared too.
I love the colors, btw! :D

The costume reminds me of Norway's 2013 Hetaween costume. xD

He looks like a Hetalia character, and i'v never seen it before. xD

I also think you should put him in your angel series (that one picture where you drew all the angel rankings. :))

I like the effect that photo background had on this. I don't think the character looks misplaced, I simply find him to stand out just enough from the background to be seen.

Hmm, makes me think of Brutha in Terry Pratchett's "Small Gods" - a novice who has a mission thrust upon him and who ends up looking very worried indeed...

I like how he looks, and I'm glad you've started a new comic (though ticked off because now that's another one of your comics I'll have to check daily to be sure I'm keeping up with it). The only thing I don't like is his hands. How you drew them kind of bothers me.

I think he's worried that Brother Andre, always the hungry monk, will have eaten the last cinnamon roll in the abbey kitchen.

humm, a worried monk and the mention of demons. I can see why he would be upset. What kind of demons? will it be an action or intrigue based story?

Worried his hair won't grow back. Where is it a tradition monks shave their heads. Where in the Bible does it say shave only this portion of your head.

Doesn't it have to do with the same concept as jewish people have? They wear those cap-thingies to shield themselves from god (in a humble, not a negative manner) so maybe monks shave their heads to bare their minds to god or something? haha now I'm curious xD

I noticed that older people get slightly jowl-y as their skin becomes less elastic. if you added just one dark little line near his mouth to make his jaw look less chiseled and more saggy he'd instantly age quite a bit!

I would LOVE if you did more of this!!! :) PLEASE!!!!!??? :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce:

I love the idea between monks and demons (I love the idea of angels and demons in terms of gray areas or switched parties, such as good and evil or both of these parties. :) ).
