all the detail - especially in the headdress are beautiful. I'm especially fond of the highlights and white lines usage, and all the lines. the eye frame is badass too

very nice piece, you really nailed this one <3

I like it! :D It totally catches the Thangka vibe with a like new age psychedelic-ness. And he does speak to me. :)

Also, just want to define swastika (to help you) so people don't go ballistic: Swastika as you MAY know it is a perversion by Hitler and The Third Reich of the Eastern symbol (from Sankrit "Svastika") which means to "be with higher self". So, originally, it's a good thing. Now don't flame this nice lady.
