Really... just as reference then eh?

09 September 2003, 08:03 AM

looks amazing! i like how you expanded your painting as compared to the reference to add better composition and added the horse to make it more interesting. great work :thumbsup:

Johnny that wasn't cool to call him out like that man, if you took the time to see the major differences from his work to the real photo you would hold your tongue on your assumptions

- the distance from the buckle by the shoulder armor is further away in his painting and a bit bigger
- the lips in his painting are different, the bottom lip is a lil longer than the photo
- the elven broach on his is smaller
- then entire face of his painting is a bit longer than the photo
- his ear is on a different angle

so stop your witch hunt, I'm really starting to get annoyed by these types of things on the board.

criscoon great work, you have nothing to be ashamed of, artist are taught to mimick life from what they see, nude painting anyone?

Good work though to me he looks more like Bruce Campbell from the Evil Dead series.

Looks great, but Orlando Bloom plays Legolas, not Christian Bale. That's who it looks like.;)

I love that it doesn't look overly like orlando bloom!

Great painting! I just think it could have a little more contrast to it.

09 September 2003, 06:01 AM
I think it looks awsome!

Unlike others who seem to take this website as a bashing board, I would personally like to say to you criscoon, you rock!

I would kill to be able to paint like a matter of fact, c'mere fer a second.......:twisted:

P.S. Man there are a lot of Victoria people on this board?!?
(must be something in our water......:beer: )
