The Persian Hydra by Fealasy The Persian Hydra by Fealasy
Pehwie.

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.

*cross fingers*

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! :)

btw, what would be the Persian name of Hydra or ''Watersnake'' ?

it actually bothers me quite a bit when you can tell someone was looking at a jpop singer or an actor...it's intrusive or something. anyway, great job! the colors are seriously to die for...although is the horse missing a saddle? it kinda looks like the guy has a stirrup ring on his foot. love the horse's hind legs and the color of the light going down its flanks.

everything's great, just for a small detail, I mean, it had to happen for the sakes of the "theatricality" of the piece, but the side of the horse's neck by which the man is shooting the arrow is the wrong one, I mean, it's too uncomfortable to shoot with that angle, considering the depth of each element in the picture.
now, about the technique it is really awesome, and it's not that bad to use references, because the more you use, the easier it's later to 'access' the images you've stored in your head

hey.. det er det færdige output der tæller.
Nogen af de største kunstnere vi har haft har brugt reference til deres billeder, såsom at projecere et fotografi op på et lærred og så tegne/male derfra.

Så.. så længe at det output man laver har sit eget personlige bud, så gør det ikke noget.. så længe man ikke bare smider et billede ind og maler lidt oven på det og så kalder for ens egen kunst..

Fedt og anderledes billede fra din side.
