a bunch of tradish pieces.

here are several pieces that I did recently. I'm trying to get a good feel for a way to do traditional pieces that have a splash of color in them and are interesting to look at. Traditional isn't the easiest, but it is so open ended and the possibilities just keep growing - i really have a good time exploring in real media.

These ones are all paintings of Red Sonja. If you don't know who that is - it's sort of like Conan's female counterpart. She was dreamed up by the same writer. She had a movie staring Bridget Nielson (i think that's how you spell her name) and Arnold S. was in it too.

At any rate, I used to love her comics when I was little. They had monsters, swords, and boobies. It's pretty much a perfect combination. I'd never yet done any pics of red Sonja and now that I have - it's all i want to do. (^__^) I'm working on another one for the Crazy4Cult show in LA next month. It's shaping up to be a really fun piece and I can't wait to post it, but before I post it - i have to finish it.

I'll find some time and get back to you on that one.


Oh yah, and in case you were wondering - they're ink washes, a little water color, and some acrylic and then they were mounted to board.
