Awakening by Onanymous Awakening by Onanymous
As the light fades, cracks appear all over his body.
Soon, he will shrug off his stone blanket and rise into the night.




This one happened a lot faster than my usual fantasy chops, but I rather like it. The animals used to bring the statue alive was a bat, armadillo, monkey, goat and vulture.


Animated Work in Progress


Original statue & all other stock from stock.xchng


Created for Stoned Reality 3 @ Worth1000
About 4 hours in Photoshop CS2

Edit: I finally fixed the beak. It was always too shiny and blurry compared to the rest.

Extremely realistic piece of art. Very skilled blending of choice animals/parts. I love how fully you have realized the anatomy and textures of the creature underneath. And the color, both in the figure/foreground and background, is incredible. Looks like this gy is perched over somewhere in Italy.

This picture brings back awesome geeky memories for me, regarding each time a gargoyle broke out of its stone-skin.

I'm not sure if I ever expound enough to convey how much I enjoy your works, but WOW!!! And in just 4 hours??? WOW!!!

If I had to choose just one deviant to watch for new works, it could well be you.

I can't think of a single image you've posted that I didn't :+fav:. Seriously.

You amaze me and I adore and laud your talents. You are incredible.
