Character of the Week #313
Guardian of the Stairway to Heaven
Deadline - Sunday, January 20 10PM GMT
It has been said that in your lifetime, in order to reach the highest point of divinity after death, one must follow the "righteous" path. But what if there is another way?
There are legends of a forbidden stairway that only the divine can access. Protecting this stairway is the Guardian of the Stairway to Heaven. Wielding a mighty weapon, the Guardian ensures that no mortal may trespass into the heavens.
Your job is to design the Guardian of the Stairway to Heaven, the one who protects this secret from humanity.
- Must be humanoid.
- Can be male or female.
- Include the "mighty" weapon.
- This guardian is NOT evil. We don't want dark or evil designs.
- Think about where the stairway is located
- Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline
- Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
- At least 3/4 of the character must be visible
- Sketches or rushed artwork will not be accepted into the poll
- At least two wips posted in the finals thread
- Background is optional
- Have fun!

Inspired by somewhere I went on holiday. The stairway is at the end of a long lake covered in water lilies and surrounded by tall trees. A lone stone guardian stands watch in the center, but its mainly symbolic since the stairs themselves are formed out of running water and only the divine can walk on water, keeping mortals out.
Nice work everybody! I've enjoyed seeing all of the different takes on this subject.
I need a break from it so I'm calling it done...

A suit of armour without it's knight. It's wearer long dead. Yet it stands there, unmoving, guarding.
Not satisfied at all but that's mainly because I have spent way to less time on it. However I want to compete anyway so here it is. A lot of nice entries indeed. Good job everyone!
Panama66 you need at least 2 wips with your final, there's still time to add one more wip before the deadline.
Great designs everybody.
I have a long way to go still #determinedeyes -.-

Uncle we need your username and chow# at the bottom of your final.
" Tangga Surga", the stairway to heaven, essentially cannot be seen by human/mortal. But there are times when it becomes visible. At these sacred times, protection to the gate is needed to avoid mortals enter the gate. This important job belong to "Gagah Kappoasa", the Guardian of the Sairway to Heaven. He has human size, to easy mobilize when preventing mortals enter the gate. He has the ability to create illution, so he can prevent mortals without harming them. But when needed, He may call his alter as weapon: "Gagah Rakkoasa". This giant spirit is controlled by Gagah Kappoasa. Mimicking it's master, and equipped with Gods Super Power. There is definitely no mortals will pass the gate when this Powerful Guardian on duty.
