In Florence there are many statues that are notorious, the David by Michelangelo, Cellini's Perseo, however this little gem by Verrochio, who was the teacher of Leonardo Da Vinci, is one of my all time favourites. Above is a detail of the painting that I made of the sculpture, here is the entire painting:

Yea, actually I did use the 3/4 ratio, I even saved the image in that format before I uploaded it, and I still got the 16/9 ratio. Do you know how this can happen?

Beautiful painting! I love the effect you make so that it looks like a statue so real, I'll have to look for the publication in Steemit or Busy to see the complete image, when you go to publish you can edit the format that was the best for your work. That way we could see it all.

Greetings Matteo!

Thanks Yanes, yea I have been working on the nTopaz starting page, and it sometimes makes the image come out a little different than I would like, 16/9 instead of 4/3, I don't quite get it, I'll keep trying to make the perfect post!

Downvoted for link-spamming this post to my discord server in a #general channel.

Mr. Savage, I am so sorry that you think my post is spam. I am a painter, and artist, just trying to share my artwork. The rules of Discord are so complicated, I mean no harm, nor do I want to Spam anyone! How would you define "General" seriously, what does it mean?

Every discord server has its own rules, because they are established by the community that runs the server.
Sharing your link without permission in a channel that is not explicitly labeled for the purpose is ALWAYS considered spam - just link sending your link in an email to somebody would be spam, or going around sharing your link on other people's posts would be spam.

This is not complicated.

... you shared your link three months ago in my server and I issued you a warning at the time. If you were actually engaging with the community and not passing through to link drop, you would have seen the warning.

Cool, I'm out, obviously I am not understanding your channel, Sorry.
