I am just starting out in this hobby and the Lizardmen are my first and favorite army so far because they are so cool, and I love reptiles. I'm just... So humbled that the person who made some of the art for the newest book is on deviant art!! :ohnoes:

Thanks! Is it in the new Lizardmen army book? I actually did this for Warhammer Online several years ago, but it wouldn't surprise me if GW used it in their book.

:D no problem. I was just going through a bunch of Lizardmen pictures on here and I recognized your work! The first thought that went through my head was: "no way! This person is on deviantart!?"

I love the colors and the blurry light in this picture. That shimmering turquoise that surrounds the temple guard is especially lovely and brings out the shadows (which are excellent as well).

Question. When you paint these, do you use any references like look at certain pictures to get some of the details so good, or are you painting everything just out of your own head?
Reply
:icondaarken:
daarken Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I pretty much just paint everything out of my head. Sometimes I look at my hands if I need a certain pose, but other than that I don't use much reference.

Wolfy-Snackrib Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011
Now that is the ultimate kind of artist to me. Someone that does not need references all the time. Most people I know that are artists, they use references for everything. But you are the kind of artist that I admire the most, the kind that has the most skill. Got any tips on getting good like that?
