Finished Master Study 1 by EleMont Finished Master Study 1 by EleMont
Heres the first Finished master study. Its a study of Rembrandt's "Man in Armour".

It took forever, I learned a lot though.

I added a canvas kinda texture over the top just to give it that traditional feel, also spent a lot of time trying to mimic his brush strokes.

The Ref I used can be found here:

What a beautiful study! Rembrandt is one of my favorite classical masters. :) I think you have done it very well down to the texture and brushstrokes. I know how difficult it can be to simulate that digitally. Well done! :heart:

Thx :D Rembrandt is such an amazing painter, no matter how long you spend you can never quite reach his level of finish lol Its crazy because the original painting is huge too XD

Oh yeah, he's definitely amazing! I have had the honor to visit his museum in Amsterdam twice. It's an amazing experience and would recommend everyone to do the same if they ever drop by in that lovely city!

I really like the subtle detail on this.  Love the shine and texture on the armor especially.  The only thing I would suggest is to make the picture a little lighter; it's difficult to see any details below the armor.  Other than that, nicely done!

And...?  My opinion isn't going to change just because a name is brought up.  Every painting, no matter how well drawn, will have its flaws and strengths.  Moreover, this is still your study and interpretation of Rembrandt's work.  I don't think there is anything wrong with that.  :)

:iconelemont:
EleMont Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015
But your crit was that the detail is lost in the shadows... That's to draw attention to the lights, the focus areas, this is a very common thing among master artists, its not a flaw. Rembrandt was one of the greatest painters to ever live, and you just crit him for doing something that actually improves the image.

Everyone has a right to his or her own opinion.  Thanks for explaining how the shadows were intended to work.
