SERES - Middle East Fantasies by jesonite SERES - Middle East Fantasies by jesonite
:bulletorange: PIN UP for "SERES" Artbook published by #StudioXIII. Tons of talented artists under one theme... FANTASY~!!

They are -"KORA" the Sphinx- A mythic yet mischievous figure that was passed on by the Egyptians to the Greeks, and -"APKAYU" the Gryphon- Loyal Guardian and emblematic symbol of the great Persian culture. Both pray the highest ideals of the old world, and personally, I think they both gave birth to a very distinctive genre, that is also one of my favorites, "Anthropomorphism" ( They're somewhat like Adan and Eve for Anthro Beings ) It was quite challenging and fun coming up with this piece!

"Seres" had it's debut on the previous CON,"TNT 19" -> [link] " CON was seriously a whole experience, thanks everyone for your support and company! and thank you girls for letting me participate on the art book! " =D


:bulletorange: ILUSTRACION para el Artbook "SERES" publicado por#StudioXIII. El Artbook cuenta con la participacion de multiples artistas bajo una misma tématica... FANTASIA~!!

Ellos Son -"KORA" la Esfinge- figura mítica y procaz heredada a la cultura Griega por los egipcios, y -"APKALLU" el Grifo- Fiel protector y simbolo emblematico de la cultura Persa. Ambos representan los ideales del antiguo mundo y a mi parecer, tambien marcan el nacimiento de un muy distintivo genero, asi como uno de mis favoritos, la "Antropomorfía" ( Algo asi como el Adan y Eva de los seres antropomorfos) Fue todo un reto y un enorme gusto hacer esta pieza para la ocasion.

"Seres" tuvo su debut en la pasada convencion,"TNT 19" -> [link] " La Convencion fue enserio toda una experiencia, gracias a todos por el apoyo y su compañia! y tambien Gracias Chicas por Invitarme a participar en el Artbook! " =D


"SERES" Artbook ~ Esta a la Venta!
Buscalo en Convenciones!

Excellent use of the warm tones in front and the cool tone in the back. I really enjoy the details and the characters in your piece of art . I think the best part for me when I look at this piece of art is that I really get sense of depth with all this great shading you did.

Everything is centered well around your original griffin like characters.

The only thing that I can think of that isn't a good thing, is that it could be considered to be to crowded dude to all excellent detail you put into everything.
What do you think?

wow, está precioso, excelente trabajo!
Very awesome take on the Middle Eastern style of fantasy. Reminds me of stuff like Sinbad and Prince of Persia.
