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)

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!

A remarkable piece :clap: :clap: :clap: The detail on the knight is simply wonderful, and the warrior lady on the left is pretty good too

Only problem I see from a historical perspective is the "obsolescence" of 3 armour styles: XII century for the knight's, late XIV for the lady on the left and XV/XVI for the girl on the right. But I guess the novel calls for something like this :)
