I didn't want to portray a typical Buddha image, but rather the essence of being a Buddha

the Dalai Lama would approve :) He says he favourite images of the Buddha are not the ones that are the most beautiful but the ones that best depict what it is to be a Buddha and the dedication involved

A stunning and evocative image. And really an amazing drawing, too. The nimbus over the Buddha's head is very, very cool.

Just to add, if you look at the colors on his body, they are the resonant chakras :)

Although I am quite flattered, I am also uneasy in being compared to Mr Grey. I do have great respect for his work

I did want to share the essence of the Buddha rather than a representation of an incarnation
