Cropped photo - a merchant

Just took a quick picture of this guy the other day. Painted most of him over winther, but I actually still need to give him a base. Thus - for photography - I chose a scenic setting and cropped the image rather than showing the full (unfinished) figure on traditional white or blue/white backdrop. But somehow I actually quite like these cropped images - you kind of get a little closer to the character, than on the classic studio-images.


  1. Nice, I agree with what you're saying; there's a story in this picture.

  2. Thanks guys! Got to paint more characters like this dude.
