Half naked people battling lovecraftian-type-of-monster. I read to much Conan in my younger years, and sometimes I feel the urge to paint something like this.

This is an excellent piece of work, don't get me wrong. Who doesn't start drooling at chainmail bikinis? But for some reason looking at this piece makes me want to read "The Eye of Argon."

Exqusite detail and composition!
Reminds me of joe Jusko who did all those
early color covers of "Conan the barbarian".

Tres bien

Astounding piece of work!
funny, I've read lots of Lovecraft's stories, and I always dreamed of mixing a little of miskatonic horror with a fantasy / S&S background. This one may not have the quality of some of your other works (yet it rocks HARD all the way to hell! yeah! Headbang! Headbang! ) , but I choose it as a fave for what it represents. Keep it up, you go straight to my +DEVwatch list :) (Smile)
