Red Sonja is well known, and has appeared in multiple volumes ( Marvel , Dynamite)- and there has been talk of a new movie for years. When I set about giving ‘art’ a due amount of effort and discipline, I looked for artwork that impressed me. Things that I knew I couldn’t reproduce at the time. Much of it was on Pinterest. There were lots of fan art threads featuring ‘super heroines’ – Huntress, Powergirl, Batgirl, She Hulk, Supergirl, Spiderwoman ect,..- including Red Sonja.
In fact, there was so much fan-art featuring Red Sonja, and similar characters ( on Deviant art) – that I had not seen before: Red Monica, Red, Reddish, ( and more). – that I hesitated to create another. I personally had only a couple comics with Red Sonja in it – from the 1990’s.
The images I saw, spanning her origin in Conan the Barbarian #23, had various outfits, and physique styles. The more recent ‘Dynamite’ cover variants ( by many artists) depict a range of thin models, to moderately muscled. The costume seems to remain fairly consistent; but the faces quite disparate, changing in detail per the artist; though generally a woman with long red hair, athletic and comic book heroine-sized breasts.

It was a chance to see the art ‘watchers’ are ‘favoriting‘, by artists across DA. It gave me alot of ideas and responses. I look forward to resuming studio art – drawing, without the daily interruption – I had alot of energy to devote to thinking up ideas, and applied it to some stories and scripts.
I have in mind posting some writing on the artist and history of pre-code horror. My main goal, is to de-stigmatize the genre, and delineate what my interest is, from what is currently most prevalent, and draw an audience to the work I am remastering.
Thanks for your Interest and Kind Patronage!
