The Youth of Dawn - Character DesignAugust 29, 2022
A character design sheet for the August SVS Critique Arena Challenge, based on the prompt "Superhero". The character is inspired by the bodhisattva Manjusri, regarded as one of the four great bodhisattvas in the Chinese Buddhist tradition, and sometimes also known as "Manjusri, Still a Youth".
The third image is a close-up digital oil portrait of The Youth, a chance to test out Krita 5's wet impasto brush bundle, and practice painting semi-realistic portraits from imagination.
Painted in Krita.
