Oh, the Stories I Could Tell You... by Forty-Fathoms Oh, the Stories I Could Tell You... by Forty-Fathoms
 I feel like Red Sonja would have a lot of great and inspirational stories to tell. But maybe that's just me. These lovely lines just were begging to be painted. And ya'll know how much I love red heads. And plus, Red Sonja is just such an awesome character. I don't think I've ever painted a Red Sonja piece and not felt empowered during and after the painting was finished. wgpencil is such a talented artist and I can't wait to do more collaborations with him very soon. He did this tavern like-feel so I decided to add in a fireplace to the mix. Anyways, feedback and comments are always welcome! :heart:

Really beautiful job with the coloring details. I love the pose that was done and the pencils were done very well. Your coloring tones are soft and eye-catching. I really like the fireplace there in the back for more a realistic tavern appeal. I like the reflective glow off her sword there showing up on her arm, leg, and body. The coloring detail in the wood is very rustic and weathered. Great job with the metals in her outfit and the realistic work on her hair, too.
A really superb coloring  job for this awesome picture.

Thank you for such a descriptive comment! I don't get a whole lot of these kinds of comments and it's nice to get one where someone really looked into depth on the piece. :heart:

Your very welcome. I think it's all the little pieces noticed that make the picture a whole.

It's not "just you". What does grind my gears slightly is the people who insist on treating her as  "Conan the Thickie" with XX rather than XY chromosones.

:iconforty-fathoms:
Forty-Fathoms Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2017  Professional General Artist
Yeah, she's definitely not Conan. She's her own character in her own right.

paws4thot Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2017
That's not entirely what I meant; I meant that not only is Sonya her own woman, but that neither Conan nor she are thick (well except for him in some of the comics and films).

You're getting so good at coloring skin and conveying light and shadow, so cool! And the fact that she's a redhead doesn't hurt one bit. ;) :heart:
