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.
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.
alter, du bist so gruselig, weißt du das eigentlich? xD ich liebe es, wie deine bilder aussehen *^* ich finde die auf animexx schon immer so toll asdfghjklöä Echt interessant zu sehen, wie die ganzen zwischenschritte aussehen *-*
I'd like to know, how'd you learn to paint, and with all the perfect lighting? Did you take college classes for this? I'm just a little discouraged because I want to paint like this for hopefully a career in concept....
I'm just not okay with objectified women in art so this character is a disappointment for me. It's sad because it's so beautiful and so wonderfully rendered. I love your art and I look up to you as a person and artist. Something in her facial features suggest weakness. Then there is no strength in her grip: she is about to drop the sword to the ground. Her body is frail and she is practically naked. She seems defenseless in her body and in her mind and it makes me feel sorry. I'm sure you had instructions to follow from Applibot. Seeing most of the art produced for them, they are obviously not interested in depicting empowered female characters. So I'm not blaming it on you per se. I just wonder if it could have been depicted differently and if you were aware of this.
