Default June - Noob - Mayaguy_dr

After a long time, i'm participating in the challenge. Hmmm... Mythical creatures !!

I've never done mythical creatures before. I've not decided what to model. Will come up with something soon.

Couldn't decide where to choose from ... greek or mayan or european mythologies.

And finally decided to choose the character from my Indian Mythology. We've many mythological characters here in India ...and i chose to try to model Hanuman - the monkey God.

About Hanuman : Hanuman is a monkey god. He is a noble hero and great devotee of Lord Rama of the Ramayana.

This deity is a provider of courage, hope, knowledge, intellect and devotion. He is pictured as a robust monkey holding a mace (gada) which is a sign of bravery and having a picture of Lord Rama tatooed on his chest which is a sign of his devotion to Lord Rama.


Well, this is my first try. Hope i'll finish it off by month end

Buddha's been done. This monkey god is a very original idea, and I'm looking forward to it.
