Artwork Description

I always like using uplighting when I can, it just creates such great drama. Even though the priest being thrown is the bad guy and probably ticked Conan off I still feel a little sorry for the guy.I wanted a certain effect on the carved stone wall in the foreground so I used kind of a glazing technique on the painted surface. I love painting on gesso, it lends itself so well to applications like that.

I hereby re-christen this piece as the following:

"Conan: GTFO!"

Man that facial expression is spectacular! Such savage rage! Also, I am facinated by the proportions that you have chosen to render Conan with. His legs seem a little short, but stocky and powerful, like he has some asiatic heritage possibly. Other inferences to an Asian blood line are the long black hair, and of course his incredible swordsmanship, (not to say that non-asian warriors haven't been great swordsman), but Conan's look seems close to that of a samurai. Another outstanding oil painting!

Great. Yeah, I like the fact he's utterly helpless and useless in this situation. Thanks for the comment.

Love the priest
He looks so utterly pansy and helpless, as if he's waving his arms and shouting "help meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! EEEK!!!!"

I can imagine him making the same face and arm movements if he saw a mouse.

love it.

Art at its best.
