Unfortunately I don't have it, but I can probably find back her name and look for pics , whenever I dig that signed card and can read the name on it.Neuron wrote:Great adds! Do you have also a photo of the Serra Angel model?
Posing and staging photographs to paint over is still a very common practice in the industry. It's not always done with traditional photography though. Sometimes it can get blocked out in 3d, or in rare cases sculpted in clay and then photographed. The main thing to consider is that the artist creates their own photographed scene to then pain over.thulnanth wrote:Back in "the day" it was very common practice to use real people for the models for vampires in the Jyhad card game. I think spouses, friends, Wizards employees, and other artists were commonly used. I have many of my vampires signed by both the model and the artist.
