Your mind is your mighiest of tools. Without it, you are nothing. A stone is but a stone, the world is shut tight to you, and you are helpless to even the weakest of men.

With it, a stone can reshape nations, the world will fall open and bend to your fingertips, and even the mightiest of warriors can fall to his knees in respect to you.

Treat the mind as you would a cherished weapon or tool, with great respect and even greater care.

Would totally love to meditate with him.

On a more serious note, I like how mystical and mysterious it feels. His eyes are covered so there's no real way to tell what's on his mind or what he's really like.

Very wise words. Nothing like an Assassin's Creed picture to lighten your day. For a practice this is excellent, it doesn't matter if its slightly messy or unpolished or whatever word you want to use, the flaws make them better.

c/ God bless us everyone,
We're a broken people living under loaded gun.
And it can't be outfought,
It can't be outdone,
It can't be outmatched,
It can't be outrun.
No! c/

A lot of atmosphere to this. Great job with the skin, very organic feeling and the flow of the fabric. The contrast between the flow of the fabric and stillness of his body is very tangible.

I have to say it's nice to see a man with hair on his body for once. They usually have chests smooth as a baby's bottom. :v
As always, I just love your way of using color and shading! This sure looks pretty amazing. C:
