Another great scene from "Princess of Mars"... JC comes to the princess' defense and makes his point, well, literally. Oil on canvas, 16x20

This composition is like that of a book cover or graphic novel cover, which has a more stylized posed look. I had always pictured a younger Hugh Jackman in the role and really had no idea who would make a good Dejah, so I made her up (with the help of a bodybuilders pose for her). I owe one of my favorite artist, Iain McCaig credit for the basis of Tars face, a simple pencil drawing from "The Art of John Carter" that captured a slightly reptilian but more noble world weariness. The Art Nouveau framing serves as a reminder that the book was written just before 1912.

Only a thark from Warhoon would pull a radium pistol in a sword fight!

I withdrew the original Thark Treachery in favor of this revised version. The previous one just didn't look "finished," so I extended and darkened the background, darkened Dejah Thoris (she is a Red Martian, after all), and added the border. Much better.

This was my first experience with Copic markers. I like the way they work and can be blended to a certain extent. I plan to use them more in the future!
