This Mitra´s warrior priest was a Conan fight mate in one of his adventures; here I show you my own vision. Originally written by Roy Thomas and drawed by Ernie Chan... Hope you like it:

Good stuff; you have mastered anatomy, and can use it or manipulate it as needed for effect. I have a purely personal antipathy/dislike for the practice of depicting barbarian heroes in unlikely combinations of armor and semi-nudity - but that's just me.

I like the picture of Khemsa and his lady. Khemsa is not as my personal mind's eye had imagined him, but that's just my personal mind's eye. I had pictured him younger. But I like your depiction of his posture and gesturing. And I REALLY like the awed and fearful expression on the girl's face! That tells a story! And the hard nipples is a good touch. And so is the impressive and ornate belt which will play such an important part later on.

Thank you so much Mad Playwright... When I combine seminudity (as you said) with armor is just a trying to make a character rough and noble at the same time. As you see on the last illustration I uploaded; the King Kull is fighting an army of dead. I tought that he dresses up quickly with the armor and weapons he can take in that moment. I just thought it could be work. Im glad you like my vision of Khemsa and I appreciate that you have watched the girl´s face; because it´s very difficult to me to make facial expressions.

Yeah unique is good in todays market. I'm fed up with generic styles, superhero poses everywhere. :)

I like the minatour summoned from beneath, i'm sure your smoking colouring will look sweet on this piece.

Have you coloured any of your new pics yet? Would like to see the coloured versions if so too. Before and after thing. :)

Hello Dave¡ I´m working in a new illustration about Conan of course(but it´s not any of the pics I´ve uploaded before; it´s a brand new work) and I´m going to paint it right now . As soon as possible I will upload it; thank you for your interest.

This work is about "The People of the black Circle". The next illustration that you can see was made two years ago. It´s one of the first illustrations I made about Conan and I think it´s the worst ilustration I made about this character. The composition, the drawing and the colouring process is not well executed in my opinion. Maybe I can see this kind of mistakes because I´m still working in this character as best as I can. Well; here you are:

Nice colouring indeed, the ghostly figure peering out from the darkness behind Conan rocks. Your colouring has style and some good detail in the figures too, composition of fingers and stuff are good.

Wow, I didn't see those ghostly figures until you directed my attention to them. Neat.

Thank you very much Dave , thank you very much Ironhand... But I hope that the next work I´m doing will be better. Here you can see an old quick sketch that I call "Yasmina´s nightmare" inspired in "The People of the Black Circle"... Hillarious:

K4rglos I like your pencils more than I like your colored finished products. It's as if something gets lost in translation.

Hey K4glos, nice work. your color work has a style that works well and gives your work personality, it makes that style your own and separate from others, if you know what I mean. I like both your pencil and color work but they are two different styles. keep a version of both and keep up the good work

Hello Ironhand; yes you´re right and I agree with you. It´s because I´m not a real good painter and the painted works that I uploaded are old works (except Solomon Kane stuff) But now I´m doing a new illustration about conan that I´d like to show to all of you and I´m going to try that the next work could be better than the last painted works that I shown to you.

Hi Cuchulain ; thank you very much for your words; but I´m working now in another illustration about Conan and I´m trying that the painted version will be as good as the penciled version. As soon as I finished I´d like to show to all of you.
