    Shinto Deity: Daikoku

    Daikoku is better known as his Hindu representation, Shiva. His name translates as 'The Great Black Deva' (a deva is a Hindu male diety).

    In Shinto Buddhism, Daikoku is often a stout little man who carries a Miracle Mallet (capable of granting wishes), and a sack containing wealth which he often sprinkles on people. As He has six different forms, excluding incarnations in other religions.

    I created the head in a separate Artrage file then imported it to a layer. I'm a bit intimidated by large paintings, so I've been trying to do it piecemeal. For the head I referenced a chubby Japanese kid.

    Hello and thanks.

    I don't care much for the painting, but I learned a lot in the process.

    Thank you.

    I've attempted him several times using a number of styles. This is the most successful, but I'm not quite there.
