Red Sonja :Doom of the Gods 3 by PaulRenaud Red Sonja :Doom of the Gods 3 by PaulRenaud
This is the cover for Red Sonja : Doom of the Gods #3.
I did four covers for this mini series. I chose to keep the colored almost black and red for the whole 4 covers. It makes a sort of thematic with colors

I tried to go with the classic Frazetta composition here.

Her expression is perfect. She sneers at these so-called barbaric warriors. They're beneath her. :iconsnooty-plz: I mean, they're inferior, not the fact that...they're literally beneath her. :| XD

Yep, Red Sonja is above these guys. She always shows some disdain toward men in general.

One day I'm hoping to make an epic one vs. a million barbarian-fest like this, and this is a fine example of it done extremely well. :) You do great work!

This kind of battles are a lot of fun to draw. There's quite a lot of that in the Red Sonja book I'm currently drawing. The only down side is it's so much time consuming!

Only thing I gotta say is that the red blood that's sprayed on all of them, if that's what it is...
Doesn't read very well, I think it's too close to their skin colour, since their skin is reflected red.
If the red of the blood was a tad deeper, I think it would work better.

But this is really great, you did well making her the center of attention, the first thing you look at, especially with the face there. Very cool.

Thanks for the nice words.
The idea behind the red "wave" in the lower part is to neutralize the foreground colorwise, and focus the attention on Sonja in the center.
I'd agree that it's not essential to the composition here as an illustration, but as a cover (where the comics fans will glance at it for a millisecond), you got to make it simple and direct :)

Oh, I see what you mean. But I was referring to the blood that sprayed on their skin, like Sonja at the top, across her rib cage. At first I thought they were just a bunch of little bite marks. It doesn't look bad, that's not what I mean, I just feel like it's a tiny tiny bit too light for such small spots.

But really, I don't think it's a huge deal, I shouldn't nitpick. Thanks for replying. :heart:

She looks awesome ^^ I LOVE HER and her name is great!!

Unfortunatly I can't put her down as a mainbloodline Taigum in the studbook, because she doesn't meet all the marks required :( But I can put her in there as a second bloodline =D
