Got inspired about theme "Overgrown". I've wanted to do a Buddhism themed stuff for some time now, but couldn't quite know the angle of approach. I liked the idea of monk becoming one with the nature. Having achieved enlightenment and ready to go from this life, as last good deed giving himself to the nature as seedbed and fertilizer.

Made with PyxelEdit. Didn't really count the time as I got absorbed in doing. 32 colors(not really optimized :D). 8 Frame animation.

Theme was "Overgrown"  so I decided that a monk had been meditating for so long that the nature had grown on him. Probably also achieved enlightenment and just waiting to pass away. Then it just felt right to give him Jesus-like hair and beard(drawing some reference from the movie Samsara I suppose).

Is that Jesus?

Yeah, I don't blame you haha! Animation can get pretty tiring.

Thank you and good point there. I was a bit lazy with the animation over all. 

I let this piece settle for a while and then revisit the animation with new perspective.

Nice work on the grass animation! Very relaxing to watch. Maybe the bigger tufts of hair would sway a bit in the wind as well?
