Spark of Inspiration by Farstride Spark of Inspiration by Farstride
I don't if multiple entries are allowed or not, but I was "struck by the idea of this piece and thought it could be a cool addition to the gallery even if it's not qualified for a prize. I did a larger version where there are purple clouds around him and you can see the rock he's standing on, but I'm afraid with that much size, you kind of lost the fun details of his face and body, so I cut it down to about one third the size the image was. I don't know how apparent the "meaning" of the picture is, but it's about looking for a "spark" of inspiration. you can see the lightning (that's lightning btw) striking his colorful paintbrush as he is inspired to paint. Obviously this is for the contest [link]

Yeah, definitely thought of He-man when I drew this. I even looked up he-man for a reference, but couldn't find one to use as  model for my much skinnier character. Thanks for the nice comment, and yes I agree, it's nice to have more entries. Hopefully we'll see a lot more come in before the end of the month. Nice work on your own entry as well, although having gone through your gallery, the piece I was most impressed with was stare. Especially how you mixed the tribal marking with the fur pattern. Can't tell where one ends and the other begins. Nice pose as well.

I thought He-Man might have been the idea-starter ;D & no problem, it's a good piece of art!

Well thank you :3 I agree, hopefully there'll be more entries (I noticed a fair few were ones people had randomly posted that shouldn't have been there, but most seem to have been cleared up now) it's always nice to see more artwork :)

I loved working on 'Stare' I must say, she was such a beautiful character to work with, glad you like it, thank you ^.^
