Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 74
As promised, here's Old Man Paolo. The collection of images below is the actual printout from which I painted.
These boots are one of my favorite pieces of reference. They're from a 1:6 scale soldier—purchased á la carte from ebay—and made of pleather, so they fold and reflect light just like their real-world counterpart.
And here is all of my reference "posing" together. The top section is all pictures I found on-line, while the bottom row is my horse collection. I don't have to paint horses all that often, but when I do, those things are indispensable. I can't find the exact package that I bought, but I found one that's similar on Amazon.
Speaking of which, I've just created a personalized Amazon Store which features several books for which I have contributed artwork. In the coming months, I hope to add book and product recommendations as well.
