I hope this is alright, and if it's not I'll be happy to remove it. I used this picture as an exercise in light study because I just thought that this was absolutely phenomenal. I really struggle with shape, light source, and shading, and this was a beautiful example of all three.
I referenced it for this fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/i/201… which all it is, a reference. I read your rules, and I threw it into my scraps not my gallery, I also sourced you and the original picture. Of course if you would like me to remove this I'll be happy to.
Thank you so much for the beautiful stock images, even in just a short 1 hour period, I learned so much from referencing this photo.
You can throw it into your gallery! My photos don't have to be used for photo-manipulated works only. I love seeing them being painted and referenced such as you've shown in your work. Looks great! I wish I had the skills to do the same. I really love it!
