Gorilla Shaman by Fyreant Gorilla Shaman by Fyreant
Happy Labor Day, o Peoples of DA!

Let's celebrate with a screaming ape. Has ape killed ape? Or is ape gonna kill ape? Damned if I know. This piece is at least ten years old. BUT I can say it was done for the Magic deck Alliances and is meant to depict one of the gorilla folk living on Dominaria at that time. I loved that idea, a race of "civilized" gorillas, and still do. Wish they'd done more with it.

I do think this character is fantastically creative, I like it because it is different from what I'm used to seeing. The pose is also so alive, full of action despite it being a 2D shot and even more....traditional media! The texture of the fur is especially realistic, despite the forced drama of color (which I like). Details like the jewelry are enjoyable too and makes the character come to life in my mind.

A fave. :thumbsup:
