Funny, this how I always imagined the Greek God Apollo to look like :D
I know Apollo is not a sun god, but that's how I see him :)

wow, what an interesting thought. I wouldn't think that the contrast between such pale skin and such bright golds would work, but it's a really cool effect. The subtle, almost "sparkle" in the gold reminds me of cards i've seen with images of Hindu deities that have gold embossing on them. Very neat!

You managed to bish-ify one of my favorite monster rancher monsters.
I bet you couldn't do that with dulhallan or tiger.

*laughs* I'm sure Beaclon would be handsome. He has that manly big scarab horn on his head! Or what about Suezo?
Anthro Monster Rancher bishis... That would be the strangest portfolio ever.

This may sound weird, but this would be perfect for my bathroom!! I have a celestial/blue theme going on and this would be perfect in a small black frame! The details in this picture are really amazing! I can't decide on favorite part - the curtains, the sheet, his hair, those lips!! Wonderful job all around! Perhaps someday I can get a print of this as I'm sure it would look amazing anywhere you hang it! :+favelove:

As a big time Monster Rancher fan, I can really appreciate this pic. It's very lovely, but I wonder what he'd look like with even whiter skin.

I'm so sorry that I can't buy a print of this--I can't collect anything at this time as it would only wind up in storage gathering dust. But this is beyond words. I am in awe.

I think he is schmexxay!! ^^ but...
1. the little thingy to the right by his arm, looks kinda out of place
2. The sun on the wall I think should have a dull glow, I tihnk that even without light, it should magneficently glow =D
3. I agree with everyone else about detailing his abdomen more too.
4. His right hand does seem kinda weird....:P
5. I got nuthin else, mainly what everyone else is saying -waves fists at everyone else to got the good comments first- -_-'

Other than that, Hes SCHMEXXAY!! with a double X ! xDD
Keep it up.

Good Gods, it's Gali.

*gapes*

Flawless. I'm bleedin' serious as well, not quite patronizing ya here. It's... wow. From his marble-like flesh to the gold inlays... Wow. I'm assuming this is digital as well, right? The li'l curtains are so, they look almost tangible--a stark contrast from him.

I'm, awe-struck. Gorgeous.

GALI!! I can't believe this. What a wonderful interpretation of this character!! The colors are so sensitive and peaceful; he looks like one would find him in some ancient fresco or mosaic. Gorgeous.

I have to go look at the rest of your gallery now. :D
