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…
I was also struggling a lot with the composition, so I just smacked a golden ratio onto it and went with that.
