demon sanctuary by michalivan demon sanctuary by michalivan
This is a cover for a local book about Conan I just finished.
Done in Photoshop

(I posted it earlier, but after short time and after feedbackI deleted it, to correct it, this version is much better-sorry for that)

edit: I changed conans face a little after useful crit. from Merlkir- thanks a lot!

Anything that reminds me of Frank Frazetta makes me smile. The reason this reminds me of his oils is the spot on anatomy, the pose, the composition and the textures. Great job.

the contrast on conans upper half really brings it out a lot. good stuff :). also getting the angle of the axe blades is quite easy to get wrong i always find, always :(. lol keep it coming. some of us really have nothing better to do than look at kick ass pics all day.

Líbí se mi, že co přidáš novou ilustraci, vždycky je lepší než ta předtím a je v ní mnohem víc příběhu a kvalitní kompozice. Hodně se mi tu líbí ta žena, zjednodušení a zkratky v anatomii fungují výborně a póza jasně ukazuje její úmysl a náladu.

Jestli můžu trošku kritiku - Conanův obličej by mohl být lepší. Je v něm hodně ostrých a špičatých tvarů a i když má působit zuřivě, vypadá trochu žensky. Možná je to i tím, že je hodně jiný než jak ho maluje většina lidí kopírujících Frazettu - tzn. široká tupá brada, ostré rty, malý nos a rovná ofina. Tenhle má ty obličejové proporce mnohem normálnější. Není to špatné, ale ne úplně Conanovské (pro mě).
Ještě maličkost - to svítící rameno pěkně vede pozornost od blyštící se sekery ke slečně v pozadí, ale Conanův obličej tím trochu zaniká. Na druhou stranu to dost dobře vyvažují tmavé vlasy a dělají i dost kontrast s obličejem, takže je to ok.
