Red by JonathanWyke Red by JonathanWyke
This is just something I started out doing for IRON, but halfway through it sort of turned in my head to something I'd do if I were allowed to do Red Sonja. No chain mail bikini I'm afraid, as that's not really my style...

...and the wonderful Gail Simone liked this on Twitter... yikes.

Thank you! 

I was going for more Dark Ages with her - certainly post-Roman...

What a coincidence, I am just doing an ironborn related image as well.  Super work.

Ta. I just wanted to do a Red Sonja pic, but without the chainmail bikini. If I did it again, I'd do it differently, but I'm actually pretty pleased at how this came out!

Hello! I'm new but, I love this piece of work. It's got a simple nature but, complex details. Somewhere along the lines of hyper detailed. Like a mixture of simple and hyper detailed. It's awesome!Clap

Thank you! My instinct has always been to aim for hyper realistic (and fail), but recently I've been trying to mix that with some looser lines, and this was one of the first pieces where I think that started to work. Detail sort of following the viewers focus if you like...

Well, you certainly succeeded in mixing the styles. It's a great hybrid. Thanks for sharing it.:) (Smile)

I actually like what you've done with the contrast in her hair. I love your greyscale work and the pressure flow of your lineart is brilliant.
I'd have this over chain mail bikini any day. Amazing job!

Thanks! The chain mail bikini always bugged me - same for Conan's loincloth really - so it was just something fun to play with.

Don't know that one I'm afraid. I wish I'd done a better job on her hair now - it was supposed to sort of bleed into the light from above, but didn't work at all. Still, no chainmail bikini but still looks pretty hot I think :)

Thanks! I was very briefly famous and popular on Twitter when Ms Simone said she liked it! That's all finished now, obviously :)
