I did this illustration based off of a dream I had awhile back. I was the monk pictured in the foreground, walking in a procession of monks along a mountainside. We quietly marched up to two colossal gold doors and sat down in rows (forming an arch)…waiting for someone or something. Eventually the doors creaked open to reveal a monstrous tiger, whom scoured the rows of monks…intent on finding someone. He approached where I was sitting…and began to swallow me whole. Once his jaws reached my back/spine, he clamped down and I woke up from my dream. Digital Photoshop painting done over a pencil sketch.
