Seeing things like this make me want to quit, because I don' think I could ever get this good.

It is all the matter of time. I recently realised that in my 37th year I am better than ever and in my primary school I was spending much more time drowing than nowadays. Don't give up.

A year later I have grown to realize that I wouldn't be happy aiming for this level of detail and realism. There are so many artists in the world who enjoy putting dozens of hours into perfecting a painting but for me, it isn't rewarding. I want to paint fast and currently, I care more about the flow and color harmonies than realism.

Hello, my name is Patrick Hogg; I am an occupational therapy assistant at Madigan Army Medical Center. I am emailing you to ask for written permission to use your design “Knights Division” in a behavioral health group I am designing for active duty military service members to help understand and develop coping skills to improve function. The Group goes over Joseph Campbell's hero's journey stages where the service member writes his or her own heroes journey story. Our hope is to use your design to empower the military service members who are struggling with traumas and hardships from their past. If you have any questions please email me at patrick.a.hogg.civ@mail.mil

Thank you for your time.

I just discovered this website today. Looking for trolls to inspire my fantasy novel. Amazingly beautiful artwork! I love the knight and horse in front. Awesome. Maybe even perfect.
BTW, my maternal grandparents were from Poland. Adam and Eva Majewski. Dziekujemy!

I like the arrogant look on his face you achieved with just some basic shapes and brush strokes.
The atmosphere is awesome too and feels nice and fluent.

Only thing to crit is the black horse, the rendering and light is great but it feels really short and bulky. I would say his legs are too short compared to his body (usually~ 1/2 of the height of the animal)
The horse on the right seems to have the same problem and an extremely long neck.
Now that I look at it closer, the (from us) right shoulder of the front rider looks too high... or the left to low.

Overall a really solid piece and horses are always a pain. ^^
