Awesome! Your pics always tells the story, with the bg details and lighting. Love that.
I think if you mastered the fundamentals ( anatomy, lighting and painting ) you are free to brake those rules for sake of the story and feeling of whole picture. Im happy to hear that you choose the creative path over beeing super focused in beeing correct. Cant wait to see more "freely" painted pics. But what the matter at the end is the fun you had doing that. If youre enjoing the proces thats im with you. So best of luck man :)
