This is the art I designed for the cover of the Conflux 12 Convention book. The theme for the convention was “Red Fire Monkey.”
The trees include ginkgo, bamboo and black pine. The monkey is modeled off the Chinese golden monkey. The rock is a Chinese scholar stone (gongshi) or “viewing stone”.
I chose a circular design to reflect the shape of a Chinese moon gate.
