Daenerys Targaryen by jodeee Daenerys Targaryen by jodeee
Finally found a bit of time to finish her.
I'm really pleased with how she turned out.
I'm about 200 pages into a feast for crows,
my god G.R.R.Martin the things you've put me


I'm not normally one to engage in mud slinging, and I guess this isn't really the case
but I put alot of work into this piece and feel the need to say this.
I tried to submit this piece to a group called realm of fantasy, I have been declined before
for the quality of my own work, fanart etc and that's fine, I am fully aware of the flaws in
some of my pieces anatomically and facially which is why from time to time I paint something
like this, it helps me to brush up on my weakness's.
However to be told that I have painted this over a screenshot because the rest of my gallery
doesn't suggest I could paint this, I find incredibly insulting. Why would I spend hours on my gallery
to then post up a fraudulent piece? unfortunately I don't have any W.I.P.S for this one but I will
be doing another portrait with W.I.P.S just to prove that I can paint to this standard.

I have posted the conversation below because I feel that even if that's why the group
declined it, there's no need to be so rude.

anyway rant over. demon exorcised.

Hi ~jodeee,
You make some truly amazing works, but painted over screenshots are not allowed by our criteria so we have to decline your submission.
Please feel free to submit something more reliable.

Hey, thanks for your reply but I haven't painted over the screenshot. I have painted it from
Scratch. But if your saying you don't allow paintings taken from
Direct reference I appreciate that.

No it isn't painted from scratch. We checked your gallery and the pieces you did by imagination have some typical anatomy mistakes. You have 2 photos painted over and there aren't these mistakes in them.

How unbelievably rude. There aren't any mistakes in them because I took reference but whatever. I don't need to defend my own work.
