Hey all. Here's a study I did from a screencap of the film Kingdom of Heaven. It started more as a copy at the beginning but I eventually wound up using it to try to experiment with painting process stuff. Regardless, it matches the photo decently well I suppose. Some things are still incomplete or inaccurate but I kind of got tired of it after a long while and I feel like my time would be better spent doing more, quicker screencap and photo studies that focus on painting efficiently in addition to studying lighting/value matching.
Anyway, here's a brief look at the process:
Took a little over 8 hours total I think. No color sampling/cut&paste from the original photo. Most of the patterns on the wall were made in another file and then tiled onto the painting.
Here's the original shot:
