Fantasy Images

A few digital illustrations I recently created which were inspired by my love of fantasy, sword & socrery fiction such as the works of Robert E Howard’s Conan the Barbarian, King Kull & Solomon Kane. And comic book artist Barry Windsor-Smith. No other artist drew Conan better then Barry Windsor-Smith.

Perhaps Frank Frazetta but his works were paintings and not comic book art.

The Sorceress Mage

Female Pike Guard – Warrior

War Beast – A massive and very powerful melee fighter.
