I useually don't use refs or detail textures, but here I think it makes up atleat 20% of the image. Makes me feel sorta "meh" even tho I can see it's a pretty picture... Just prefer it to be allllllll me.

I should probaly do it more tho, I just allways wanted to be able to draw without it. Even tho; when going trough the industry, I have been told to use refs faster than a hooker with a broken asshole uses TP. So I post is as mixed media.

Anyhow, enjoy, it WAS demanding to do.

Lovely use of colour in this scene, and I like that unusual knight fighting the monster with bow and arrows instead of the more traditional weaponry.

I use reference all the time,no shame about that,its all about how you use it,copying bluntly is no use,but when the rest(idea behind it,colors,comp,etc) and final painting are sprung directly from your imagination then you have made great art,which in this case is obvious:)Congrats ,its an awesome piece:)Love the lighting in this ,reminds me a bit of the old masters:)

Cracking piece of work. I have to agree with you about the use of references. But like you, I've also been told not to fight it and except into work flow (I have to fess, it rather helps)

p.s the hooker quote killed me! :)
