This is so cheaaaating, lol, Tracing poser characters? It also looks very artificial.

It's very well done, and i congratulate you on that. but id like to see some actual hand drawn, no reference kind of stuff.

I struggle to understand why you seem to look down on artists using reference for their works. Even the greatest masters used references for their most famous masterpieces, For example: Leonardo Da Vinci used live models and visited prisons to find the perfect face for Judas in The Last Supper.

The painting is amazing, i realize that you do actually paint the character, but it seems like only half the job was done, if you use the same 3d model to do it over and over. I hope im not sounding to harsh.

referencing is not cheating, idk what world you come from but plenty of artists, old and new reference. It makes an accurate anatomy, perspective and balance for the drawing.

I've been following Algenpfleger since he started his sketchbook on CA.org, he doesn't use reference for his work.

Sorry, Poser? Did I miss something? Where did you get that from? See, that looks to me like nothing more than a well-drawn woman. The things he did with the lines require more skill than a poser tracer has. Even if he worked this pose out in Poser, he embellished his lines in all the right places - subtle things only a skilled artist would know to do. This guy understands how to draw the human body, and wouldn't need Poser. I think you're just jelly.

I'm gonna leave before I start insulting your ability as an artist.
