Artwork Description

This was for one of the box sets that Mongoose came out with. Of course it is set in a Shadizar palace with Conan the thief stealing royal jewels after an assassination, and then being caught by Zamorian soldiers. I wanted to use a fairly dark tone here to represent the mood I was going for so I tried lowering the contrast of the lighting. I knew I was taking a chance with the printing here, but thought the cover came out fairly close to the original.

Great movement into the picture via the stairs (and color choices)...I have so much to learn, it's not even funny. At least, I'm not laughing!

Great expression on that upper guard! I can just hear him saying "D'oh!"

Thanks. Yeah, scale,design, composition were all worked out before hand, plus I like to do a little color guide to help make a lot of the tone and lighting decisions clear. This made it easier on me when I came to the final painting stage.

Wow, constructing something like this must have been a massive undertaking. Wonderful architecture and great color choices amongst other things.

Art at its best.
