    Sad I got it right off the bat. People just need to think out of the box.

    probably a stupid question, but Im assuming you use human refs. they are near perfect. Do you shoot them yourself? Pose them in 3d, or pull refs off the internet? Im very impressed by your works. Makes me want to get better

    Thanks man!
    The type of ref i use really depends on the type of image i make.

    If i aim for a realistic portrait or something more classic like the vampire image i use real human reference. I build the settings, direct the models and shoot the photos myself.
    Using 3d models for such scenes makes no sense because it would take to much time and effort to set up a realistic scene.

    In other cases if you pain something from mind and get a bit stuck at one point because you fail to paint the right effect or need to look up some anatomy for a weird pose or a difficult head perspective then you can look up some photos or pose a 3d model.
    Certain things are simply impossible to paint without a reference, no artist can do that, no matter how good he is.
    For example, lets say you want to paint some specific animal or a car engine, you simply will need reference. It does not have to be the same pose or angle, but it should help you understanding the forms and materials.

    For some images i use a lot of 3d too, simply because i can and because it saves time. I use 3d to save time, thats reason Nr1.
    You cans spend 2 hours with a ruler drawing the perspective line work for a complex building or you make a rough 3D model in 15 min, do the math.
    2d apps or 3d apps, does not matter what, those are art tools and if you can make a good use of em, do it!
    The only 2 things i care about are: 1) Result 2) the time i need to spend to get the result.
    They key is using 3d for things that would save you time and not for things that you can not make in 2d.

    You make some great points there about use of 3D. Everyone should take note.

    Thank you, glad if the info was of any help.

    I think most artists develop their own workflow naturally, but its always good to experiment and try out new things.
    Over the years i observed that most of the artists who are active in art communities are experimenting and changing styles a lot more than the older and more traditional artist. I am sure if you take a closer look at the older generations, even after 10-15 years their style and quality of work often does not change much or at all.
    I understand tho that some of the styles are like a trademark for some artists and they have no interest changing it once they become established and successful.

    Amazing work all round. Three authentic takes on a concept that were developed in a true display of artistic talent. I was very impressed when I saw these. Good luck to you and God bless.

    Hello Randis!
    Im here to congratulate on the contest win and wish you all the best in what is comming to you as an artist!
    One thing that keeps bothering me about most of your works Ive seen:
    Your paintings are something between the perfection of phototrealistic 3d renders like Vray or Maya, and flexibility of hand painting... but they really seam to be neither.
    Doesnt that bother you in a way?
    I mean, taking the Golem for example, the image could be done in 3dmax with better and greater results when it comes to light quality, and then again, it could be more stylish and "human" when it wouldnt be rendered with digital tablet, in That hard edge fashion. I dont know if Im making my self clear here.. its like if you aim at so much detail and light rendering perfection, why dont you go full 3d? or shoot a photo?
    When I saw your works the first time I was like "photo overpaint or 3dsmax overpaint". It was only I came here and read about your workflow I realised its mostly handmade.
    So, knowing I wasnt the only one I can safely presume that its more common impression.
    As to the 3d time saving argument, I fully agree, I use 3d references very often, for perspective issues, although Iam still learning to paint.


    Taking the time while Im here Id love to express my admiration to the vampire embrace painting. The color pallette used and the light is just pure win. Love the face expression.
    Only thing I would change would be the blue eye glow, since they stick out of the color set used in the image. Too much saturation imo in there. Otherwise its one of my favorite vampire related pictures EVER seen.

    Best of luck, and keep making the world a nicer place to be with your art
