I am reasonably pleased with this piece. Although, I don't like how his left foot came out... I hate drawing Turaga feet.
So yeah. That's my entry.

Credits go to Strack for the awesome sprite.
I'm an Emerging Fluidic Master (again). Time to start working on my Waterbending.
I'm still a ninja although I think I'm losing my skills as one.

I have a feeling this will be the first of many waves of nostalgia this contest will bring.

What I really like about this drawing is basically how he looks, his expression and such. I'm a big fan of the set style drawings so this is really awesome in my opinion. I like his expression, although questionable because of his mask, his eyes show a burning passion (excuse the pun) as if defending himself or his pride from something. I also like although it could be unintentional how it looks like he really does rely on his staff, sort of leaning on it slightly. The drawing looks quite well done compared to the set.
There are some things I think could be done a little better to help make the drawing much more appealing. The shading I feel is questionable as I can't really tell where its coming from exactly, if its from the very right (vakama's right) or if its coming from where his staff is. Either way I feel that some parts of the left side of his body should be illuminated slightly. Another thing is the staff although it is quite difficult to actually get right so its not really a flaw since its recognizable. Parts of it seem a little off but its alright. Shading also seems a bit odd on the staff as well. The last thing that I can spot at the moment is the feet. The turaga's feet are quite difficult to actually get right. The best way would probably be to use much more extreme difference in shades to capture the three dimensional effect of it. The feet seem a little flat and some of the shading on it could be done better.
The drawing is really quite well done, I'm impressed. Although there were a few things that could have been done better I feel it is a really awesome drawing.

It's really smooth and kinda holds that MNOG sense of mystique in it.
The perspective seems a little wonky here and there, but I think it actually adds to the piece. It makes him seem more mysterious.
The only problem I have with it, is that based on the gradient on the mask, there should be a greater contrast in color around the corner of his torso.
