Bondage by Tarzman Bondage by Tarzman
Here is my version to the cover of Red Sonja #43, presently the current issue. Whenever I see a cover on one of my favorite books that doesn't feel quite right I get the urge to do my own version (maybe I'll upload the cover I didn't like and put them side by side so you can compare), so in this case I followed through. The cover that was used is servicable, but I felt it wasn't as good as it should be.

Red Sonja looks rather surprisingly pleased in this predicament.

She looks cute, anyway. She'll return to kicking ass in no time.

Regardless if she's unarmed here, Red Sonja will find a way out of this mess and make an even bigger mess of whoeevr it was who left her like this! :) She's a really tough cookie, that's for sure! :D

I just saw the comic book cover which you used as a base to do this artwork and, to be honest, I LOVE this version WAY better!!!!! :love: :heart: :blush: Amazingly beautiful job you did here, Tarzman! ;)

I'm going to fave this because it includes two of my favorite things: Red-heads, bondage, and Beautiful Warriors....

Three, three of my favorite things: red-heads, bondage, beautiful warrior, and surreptitious gusset shots...

Four of my favorite....

VERY BRILLIANT WORK!! THINGS LOOK BAD FOR SONJA

I really love how well you drew this picture. Sonja has a perfect figure, perfect sized breasts, long beautiful red hair, flawless skin, very sexy outfit, cool pose and armor, and an interesting yet calm facial expression.

I wonder; Will she wake up and break free; or Will a Dark sorceress arrive and have "fun" with Sonja before destroying her? it will be interesting to find out. KEEP UP THE BRILLIANT WORK!!

what?... based on your comments you claim *this* is the cover to red sonja 43...?

I don't think so.

the drawing is adequate in an amatuer way but the colouring is decidedly second rate. Far too pale, far too flat and indistinct in overall depth

the closest I can find to the red sonja 43 cover that looks similiar to this is this one --> [link]

and this ain't it.

he said this was his version to Red Sonja #43.

and there is nothing amateurish or second rate about it. If it was available I would have bought this one.

This is a great piece, man. After looking over the recent Sonja covers; Is it just me, or is the new trend of tracing photography getting REALLY, DAMN, OLD? Every cover artist is starting to look like a Greg Land clone. Don't get me wrong, photo reference is a MUST to learn anatomy and physiology. There's a reason an illustrator is hired instead of a photographer though.

As an underling, my only criticism would be her neck posture. To me it's more sexy than exhausted. Sexy has it's merits too though. :)
