The walker is inspired by Dimitri Kaliviotis
The landscape is a painting from Albert Bierstadt - check out his amazing works: www.albertbierstadt.org/

Actually the intention behind this is to learn from the old masters, Mastercopies are good, but actually there´s no better way of studying them than to get your hands dirty and spend 10 hours in the image and paint something that is not there.

I learned so much more from this painting than a 2 weeks stay at the Louvre would probably ever do. Especially in terms of appreciating the techniques of the masters and learning to emulate them digitally - a priceless exercise!

Additionally this was a nice way to practice light and color. My aim was to make the walker to be believable in the situation, as if it was meant to be there and part of the original painting. Still not 100% perfect but I wanted it to be finished for today:P
