This is a striking piece, but I couldn't help noticing some of the details look *very* similar to Donato's work, in particular the armor on the men. It also seems to me that upon close inspection, the armor is rendered differently on the different characters, I would even go as far as to say that you may have pasted a few parts in there and painted over them.

I looked at the sites you provided that compare this painting's armor to one from Donato (who's artwork I'm familiar with and is my favorite of the Magic card illustrators. I also met him during ComicCon the previous year). I did NOT find any of Donato's armor on the men of Wei Chen's painting. The armor was not the same in either armor type, style, position, or rendering. One breastplate was of a similar design, but was in a different position, lighting, style, and had more armor with it than the one in Donato's piece.

I must suggest that you be careful with such a statement, because I did check on your claim, and I'm not sure where you got the idea (maybe a little, but not nearly enough to go beyond coincidence). For instance, Wei Chen's characters are mostly facing forward in a relaxed fashion, and the painting you provide from Donato has action-oriented characters sort of rushing to the right of the painting (with one or two exceptions that still don't fit the mold of the Chen's painting). Therefore, there can be no 'pasted' reference for the armor.

Also, Wei Chen added more armor on the arms and shoulders to the characters, and Donato's painting has mostly bare-armed or cloth-based costume on the arms and shoulders of his soldiers. Even the style of the armor is different. Donato's resembles a more Renaissance type style and feel to it, where Wei Chen's carries that more digital, color saturated, defined style. I am sorry, but I don't feel that your critique bears adequate proof for such a claim. The armor could've been referenced from many sources, but modified to fit the artist's desire for the design of the piece. This would be a common practice with many artists, anyway.
