Great work, it reminds me of Golden Axe from the Sega Genesis days. I really like the color scheme, you do good work Roberto.

Haha...this really remind me of Conan the game. Thanks for the sharing. Made my day! I like the composition, you applied the position of the dragon in almost a half round shape as his background, which is nice and fresh execution.

The thumbnail made had me thinking they were Mark Wahlberg and Natalie Portman, making me thoroughly confused. Nonetheless, it's very well done! :)

This is pretty great! One question, did you use Michael J Fox as a reference for his face, or is it all just a big coincidence?
Reply
:iconrobertods:
RobertoDS Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
thank you! :) I think is a coincidence, but ... Michael J Fox ?? :-? i didn't see the resemblance, honestly ...perhaps after an intense care based on anabolic steroids ? ...

btw - jokes apart, I hope he's ok, despite the disease.

very well done, but the mans pose lacks dynamic motion, he seems to be holding his arms up like he is posing
Reply
:iconsirend:
SirenD Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
agreed as well
but on the other hand it depends what this piece is
its not trying to be comic book cover thats for sure.
its more of an old school fantasy style. Those are usually pretty static kind of like pinups
Reply
:icongraphicsurge:
graphicsurge Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
Eh, pulp covers may have occasionally been static- maybe - but the poses were never static poses frozen in awkward halfway positions.

I love pulp and am quite familiar with them.

This piece feels like it wants to be dynamic, and merely failed to do so.

It really is excellent coloring and line work, just need more practice with dynamism.

:iconrobertods:
RobertoDS Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
I'm not trying to draw dynamic poses but some good compositions, is not important if static or dynamic, this is more a characteristic of a drawing and not a defect for me. In this case the pose of the barbarian may be more static because I tryed to create a contrast with the movement of the woman and the dragon, the man is at the center and a different position-pose can be not so functional for the composition, that's just exactly what I wanted to do.

:icongraphicsurge:
graphicsurge Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
alright, if you say so, I think that you will find however is that an image is not only built on the composition of elements, but the condition of the elements.
Reply
:iconrobertods:
RobertoDS Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
I'm not saying it's perfect, is far from it ... but I know what I do, believe me ... anyway, if you want, I can say that this piece wanted to be dynamic and I failed to do so, I'll try to learn the dynamism looking at your gallery.

:icongraphicsurge:
graphicsurge Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
dude don't be snarky, i'm just saying the pose makes the picture less than perfect. Accept the criticism and move on.
Reply
:iconrobertods:
RobertoDS Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013
that's ok! don't get angry, I didn't mean to be so sarcastic or unrespectful but I fear you misunderstood me, I always accept confrontation and criticism, that does not necessarily mean that I must be agreed with anything ... Some comments give me the opportunity to express my point of view, that's all, and not just because I think the comment is negative itself.

only thing i'm curious about is the sword design- seems like it would cut its leather straps that are holding it in place for him (right?)
