Oh wow, this rocks! It's seriously cool that you managed to do all the classic Frazetta tropes - Conan cleaves through his foes, bad guys falling backwards, very underdressed lady - without doing the Frazetta triangle composition. And motion, with Conan charging forwards rather than standing there being grim!
Seems like I might have commented on this before (I fav'ed it a long time ago!) but I just have to say again--this is one of my favorites to come back to every now and then, in my big ol' favorites list.
Cool, I've heard about Solomon Kane! Haven't read it though. It should be good, gonna check to see if my local sci-fi and fantasy bookstore has it Yeah it's weird considering REH was pretty much an atheist, huh?
He was a unique guy. When you get a chance, watch "the Whole wide world" starring Renee Zellwiger. It looks like a "chick-flick" romance movie but it is all about REH and his relationship with his girlfriend who was a schoolteacher. The movie covers his death as well. Very sad, but you get a feeling of how eccentric he was! I actually got the movie for Christmas as a gift.
Soloman is as badass as Conan, but more of a "thinking" reserved man than a wild beer drinking, womanizing, warrior.
Thats awesome man, will look into it immediately! Sound very interesting! Didn't even know they made a movie about him. Thanks for telling me about it. Since I think that Conan was quite intelligent and an "anomaly" compared to other Cimmerians who prefered to stay in their hills and mountains then Soloman must be really intelligent.
That is a beautiful painting. I really like the blunt motion sense of the characters, reminiscent of Frank Frazetta's work. I also really like how the lighning wit a bit if subtlelty guides us to the focal point of the painting, Conan, the cornerstone over which everything manly stands. Awesome painting.
This might be my single favorite piece of yours. Or at least I'd put it in my top 3. I LOVE how unapologetically gratuitous it is, with all the violence and that girl's butt up in the air! Haha! You are indeed a man after my own heart.
that game looks so awesome...violent too. i'm praying that they make a new Conan movie that is closer to the books and comics. I heard at one time that the Rock would be playing Conan. He is actually a better likeness to the darker complected Conan than Arnie.....
