Artwork Description

This is the very first Conan cover I worked on and was also used in a later second printing called the Atlantean Edition. I was still trying to decide on Conan's proportions here. With this version I tried exagerating the limbs, but didn't quite think it was 100 percent successful so I decided with later covers to have him a little less lanky. I also have some of influence from the John Milius film here.I kind of wanted it to be a mixing pot from different sources.

Yeah I've heard that was a great school myself, at on time I was even thinking of going myself. But decided to stay in Canada.34 isn't that old. Smile

I'm finding it hard to locate any schools near me, or in the country for that matter, that offers true illustration majors. It seems like illustration is a dying art, at least in colleges and universities. I surmise illustration is being replaced by digital media. So far the most appealling true school of illustration that I have found is the JOE KUBERT SCHOOL OF CARTOON AND GRAPHIC ART. There is some very impressive art and alumni being produced there. Its where I wish I could go even though I'm an old codger at 34.

I went to the local university graduating with a degree. I majored in Graphic Design because it was the only way I could concentrate on illustration. Some of the work I plan ahead for( thumbnails, color guides) and some of it comes to me when I'm painting. Smile

I wonder what art school you studied at Mr. Quilliams? I love your textures and composition, and the costumes, egads, there must have been some serious planning involved in these paintings. Awesome stuff.
