The Disciplinant by noah-kh The Disciplinant by noah-kh
Inspired by Beijing opera. A character design I planned to do a series for in 2006, but it became my experiment into environments instead later on. -_-;;;

The monster's controller is neither the crawling character beneath nor the huge opera face mask, but the glowing spirit in the center.


Most disciples in the opera troupes are from lowly families that could not afford to raise their child, studying under famous performers or troupes hoping to one day gain the high social status as a celebrity. The training and treatment were extremely difficult and painful, those who couldn't do well were punished and abused to the extent it was inhumane. The ones who couldn't hold out and survive, their bodies were thrown into a ditch or corpses.

As time passed, the angered souls slowly conjured into a huge spiritual entity that gathered and used corpses as it's puppets.

Strong elemental and magical attack, but due to their hatred the attack power is not consistent because of mental instability~

I keep coming back to this pieces, to see the pieces, and to read the small story provided.

It draws you in. I feel like I want to know who was that spirit, his story, and how did he end up like that...

Art Pieces that draws you in like this... is just worthy of a 10,000 words.

Wow, that's awesome in idea and execution as well. The culture of Chinese opera is so fascinating. Hope you continue the storyline--could be interesting to see what happens when this creature confronts its former masters.
