"Every journey has its final day. Don't rush." 

Zhongli, the Lord of Geo from Genshin Impact. Painted for the official "Zhongli: Heart of Bedrock" fanart contest.

It was a true privilege to paint this guy! I love the commanding color contrast and glowing golds of his ancient Geo Archon look, and I wanted to try to evoke the same intense sort of atmosphere in his human form. 

He is a permanent member of my party now. *__* How did I ever survive without him before?

AAAH The Lord of Geo! Rex Lapis himself! I know I commented on Insta, but DA on the computer is so much easier to type on. XD

This is gorgeous work dear! I love the details and the lighting, and the over all tone of the piece is so intense, you can really see his power as the Geo Arcon.

I hope I can attain him the next time he comes around; I entered the game a little late and wasn't able to rack up enough gems in time. But I will bring him home next time! <3 Congrats on adding him to your party!

Thank you so much! I worked really hard on him, and tried to bring out the gold everywhere. I hope you get him the next time his banner comes around!! I don't know how I ever survived without him in-game before, honestly, lol...his shields are amazing. *__*

My pleasure dearie! I can definitely see your hard work in this! You have come SUCH a long way since I first saw your work!

And I hope so too. I'm just going to save up as many primagems as I can, and only wish for characters that really catch my eye (like him XD). Noelle is a geo user, and her shields have been super helpful, but with Zhongli being the Geo Arcon, I know his abilities are much more powerful. I was at least able to test him out on his banner testing, and I absolutely LOVED him!!

Lord of Geo, actually! It's molten rock/meteors falling in the background.

Gotcha. The color palate had me thinking of Jenny Dolfen's "It ends in fire", though hers is red to your orange. (I wish she were still here on dA. I tried unsuccessfully to get her to stay. Now I follow her on IG and Patreon.)
