I know it was posted almost a year ago but Sarin555's comment (here) was rude and I hope you didn't take it to heart. "I don't like the monks in my area and you're Swedish, so obviously this picture is a piece of shit". What?! With anime pinups and MLPonies all over their page, I wouldn't take their feedback with anything more than a grain of salt.

Anyways, GORGEOUS picture! It's well-styled and has a great concept overall, making it a very eye-catching piece. Superb work overall, sir! =D I like how you did this picture for fun, and left it so open to interpretation. The way I see it, and this applies to anything really: living traditionally is hard in such a harsh modern world, yet many of us find protection in our beliefs and faiths. I like!

Hey, you're very welcome! I agree all the way, I dunno how somebody gets so angry at such an innocent painting! Hahaha. It's beautiful though, you did well. I love how much personality your art has-- keep up the good work!

Amazing!
The young monk stands out from everyone in so many asy: The direction he's facing, the colors, the amount of layers of clothing, and most importantly, how hes shields himself from the rain by closing his eyes and focusing, while everyone else just let it hit them.
Truly and utterly incredible.
I love it grinfaceplz

Having seen this in person, I really love this, because this is really kinda similar to how it really was, i.e. the monk really stood out from everybody else, but no one else seemed to even notice him. He appeared very thoughtful and elegant, yet still humble. I couldn't stop looking at him surreptitiously every chance I got. You really captured the idea with this picture. It's beautiful.

Thirty minute spit-paints were always something i struggled with but you managed to get so much down in the limited time frame. Don't really think it needs any more work, looks really great.

Very nice painting. I really like how the monk stands out from the crowd. Also if I'm not mistaken is the rain bouncing off an invisible force shield? If so that definitely adds to the mysticism to this piece. The colors are very vivid, esoeicla the Monks robe and the lighting and shadows are very well executed. Hey dude great job. Keep up the great work! =D
