Sanctuary III by ken-wong Sanctuary III by ken-wong
print available here: [link]

i've worked on this image on and off for the past three years. partly because i'm not very good at drawing hands! but also because i had to be in a certain kind of zone to work on this, and i guess it was interrupted by heavy game development.

i'm pleased with the result, i think it has a different feeling to my past work, but still with a sense of continuation.

sanctuary I and II, from three years ago:

OH. MY. GOD. you have no idea how long it took me to get those hands 'right'. i'm pretty terrible at hands. i just kept painting and painting and painting them until they didn't look embarrassing. thank you for noticing!

I think that doesn't exist someone who hasn't problems with the hands...I understand all your worries, but..Never stop drawing...you are so magical:)

i think it has a slightly different feel because of the background being so dark, because the previous two were paler backgrounds (and only had one subject insead of four)

Very good! =D I don't feel the greatness the previous Sanctuaries had, but it still comforts me somehow. Decided, my fave is Sanctuary I xD

It definitely has a different feeling from the other two in the series because it's missing the main motif which is the slabs of meat, BUT it is still totally creepy and hauntingly beautiful in its own right.
