So much Red Sonja art to enjoy, but this is my favorites of all of them.
I tried to do justice to the composition and perspective here:

Love the art on this one. Perspective, the coloring and how only the blood and her hair stand out. One of my top 5 female comic characters.

Truly amazing work, Dan; I'm in awe of your talent. Your work is fantastic. Having recently finished a novel (a Dark Comedy) I was very sad - VERY SAD - to discover that you don't do commissions. Gutted, in fact. How I would have loved a cover in comic-book style drawn by you! Grrrr (Picture me shaking my head and sighing.) :(

I drew this cover nearly 5 times. The first time I found a photo I liked, but with most photos, you can't be too literal with them or they don't translate. Particularly on women for some reason. By comic book standards the waists are always too thick and the legs are rarely long enough, etc. And of course, the heads are always too big. Also, what looks good in a photo doesn't always look good from an illustration standpoint. So... I kept redrawing it. Even Ron Garney did a pass on the figure... Finally, I put it away for a few months and then attacked it with fresh eyes - and that's what you see here.

YEEEES!!!! good to know such an awesome piece kicked your butt the first few times!!! :) .... I feel a little better now! hahaha ... very very cool piece Dude, I love the little choices you made, as you and I know, the margin for error when it comes to girl foreshortening is damn small! :)

Thanks! I've never, ever, spent so much time drawing and redrawing something in my life. I'm just happy it all came together somewhat in the end! A true labor of love!
