I agree about the monks images, but unfortunately I had only one monk reference image,
and to model a 3D monk human figure was out of the scope of the image.
About the simplicity of the Buddha statue I don't agree, because in this very famous temple in Thailand, they display Lord Buddha exactly like the 3D model in this image.
The point of this image is to converge the eyes of the viewer by using perspective, to the center of the body of Buddha where lies the soul and where everybody should focus doing meditation...!
Hope it will help to bring people to meditate...!
