Good piece, here you got the sword hands right :) reference I guess. The right guys has the legs too far apart though :D I imagine the model must've felt pretty uncomfortable..

Good work, I like the action and colour/hues in it! Makes me think of crusadors and these kind of tales.

It's basically the Courtyard of the Lions, yeah... I simplified the architecture and moved the fountain out of the central location, but yep, I steal from the Alhambra.

Go Moorish Spain! I love all the shafts of light you see in their architecture...

Hee. That emoticon cracks me up.

I used a combo of Photoshop and Painter - I can never get one or the other to do everything I want, so I use them both. I mainly use a hard round brush in PS, with a smattering of BaronTieri's custom brushes, and the marker and Round Camelhair in Painter.

the colors/lighting of the bronze (both metal and skin) is really well done.

The position of the swords indicates that the guy on the bottom is about a breath away from getting skewered.

Heh, yup... it was a tossup whether James or Paul got to die for the cause. Half of the ref I shot went one way, half went the other, but I decided this one had a better composition, so... poor James.

wow. Thats really good. I love the textures and detail you've put in it. I also like the palatte: very archaic and faded, like a picture. The feel is very fantasy and old like-like the beginning or middle of a battle. Nice job. Hope that it make yur portfolio stronger.
