Conan: Road of Kings Cover#3

This is the finished cover for Conan: Road of Kings#3 and some of the layouts I did for this piece. Just a side note: An obvious criticism of this piece would be that the figure's color appear unaffected by the environment. I made a this choice on purpose, as an experiment for my own purposes, it was a conscious decision.

Gorgeous. And I think the choice on the figures is sound. Art show be more concerned with the story it tells rather then the physics of reality. Conan and his wench really pop and that's a good thing.

Brian, that's exactly what I was going for.

I know there are ways of making your points of interest
'pop" while obeying the natural laws of physics and the reaction of light, but I wanted to take a more graphic approach, even though my rendering follows the latter path.

It was fun, and little scary to do.
