Conan in Colour by Red-J Conan in Colour by Red-J
OK, OK....Here's one for the road....

I did this as a warm-up sketch and then coloured it for fun. Played with some new techniques.

In case you don't know, this is Conan. I'm a big Fantasy fan, but only if it's done right, and in a funky sorta way. Not too big on the hardcore D&D type stuff, but I do love me fantasy.

Thanks for looking! Catch you guys soon!

J.

Hello Jon. I was just up here checking out anything new and well, fantastic for me-smile, I ran across your link. What can I tell you that everyone else has not said... amazing work my friend. Listen, it has been some time since I have coloured/painted anyone else's work and I was just wondering if I could take a gander at digitally painting this image of Conan? If so, do you have the high rez line art I can download? I really would love to give it ago, if you don't mind. Basically, I am and have been a Conan fan forever and when I saw this version, well, it has me inspired to work on it. But again, with your permission. And yes, I love what YOU have done with the colours as well. It works.

Well, I will be keeping an eye on ya. Great, great style Jon.

Man, this Conan Rocks!!

I got it to favourites some time ago, but I never praised you before. I'm so Sorry (what a shame...).

This is a piece of pure fierce! I never though that a cartoon/illustration style like yours could be so perfect to Conan! Beware John/Sal Buscena ;)

congratulations

The Conan movies with Arnold iz da shit! I used to read Conan some years ago... I quit reading it after the whole thing turned into a soap opera, with Conn supposedly (but isn't) dead, conana's wife (who's name I can't remember) cheating on Conana with some Captain dude... bah! Conan did much better on his own.

Anyways, a thought that popped into my head while looking at this was how a Conan comic would be drawn in this style....

Hither cam Conan, sword in hand, black-haired and sullen-eyed, a theif, a slayer, a reaver, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the earth beneath his sandalled feet...
-Pheonix on the Sword

Don't know if it's entirely correct, but close enough. Robert Howard is my homeboy.

This is another one of (many) favourite pieces of you; everything in this one kicks some @$$ in this one; the original drawing was cool as hell already, just loving how you adapted him into your style! There's no inking here, right? Tight pencils! And then the colours, again, I'm just in awe of your colours every time!!
The zip-a-tone is a niceeffect, too..maybe a bit strange at first, as it is a "modern" medium on a "prehistoric" subject, but then again, being a huge fan of "Back to the Future", who cares? Anachronisms rock!
...and so does your art!! Looking forward to every snippet you let us see!!

haha...thanks dude! I dig the observations. Your right...this one has no inks at all. It's just tight pencil, then coloured in PS. I would have to say that this is one of my personal favourites too. I actually don't mind my own drawing on this one, which is a prettty rare thing.

Back to the future is really a great series too :D
