Fat chance you'll actually reply to me, but what the heck, worth a shot. Do you use actual models to pose for your painting or do you do everything from imagination? (sorry if you already answered that somewhere)

I just love the attention to detail you put in their armor and clothing folds and the background content and lighting is amazing.

Wow, if I see something like this live I will go crazy. Even though I became a big digital art fan and work more often in this medium, I truly admire people who can paint like this with oil paints. In my opinion, the best, most impressive digital art will never be as impressive as seeing something like this in person!

Hey, apparently you just got a new fan! Hahaha!
