Knights gon give it to ya


I was scribbling, noticed some “armorish” shapes and decided to draw some knights. Because this was just a loose sketch, I wanted to practice using photo textures. I dunno… The cape is a bit overblown. I also should do some studies of armor and reflections, even tho they wouldn’t show in these super scratchy metals.
Before I knew it, I spent 10 hours and it wasn’t a sketch anymore… :stuck_out_tongue:
I was also struggling a lot with the composition, so I just smacked a golden ratio onto it and went with that.

Isn’t that the guy who pretty much pioneered how early 1900s commercial art looked?

Hmmm, could be the expressions that remind you of his stuff. He seemed to do a lot of varied, everyday expressions.
Anyways: I am humbled to be compared to such a master. Thanks Rafat!

Beautiful work…as per usual. :slight_smile:

Awesome work KIRE.

Though the cape is wierd, I didn’t get what it was for a long time.The texture is somehow too big.

Also I think colorwise it’s great, I just think the effects are too much and distract so much (maybe just me).

Thanks and agreed! This was a good learning experience, that phototextures should never full on carry a texture(like in the cape) but to exhance it. I like how the metal came out because I also actually painted on it, but didn’t paint the cape.
The same should go with the blue effect, but I just decided it gave it a lot of energy and movement.
