A Master Study from one of my all time favorite Comic Book Artist John Buscema. I was reading an interview last night in a comics magazine one of the current artists working on Conan today. In the interview the guy said he loves John Buscema's and Frank Frazetta's Conan but he purposely doesn't look at any of their stuff any more because he doesn't want it to influence his own take on the character and how he draws Conan currently. I thought that is the dumbest most innane idea I've ever heard of. First of all you can't do Conan better that Buscema or Frazetta they mastered it! You don't need to reinvent the wheel. In fact I would do the opposite and study all the Busceam and Frazetta Conan stuff I possibly had time for because that's how you do Conan! Only in comic books do you come across artist who when given an established character take it upon themselves to ignor all previous work go completely, off model and redisgn everything to the liking of their own ego. No wonder the industry is in shambles. Ok Rant over. This is Belit from Conan #72 pg 1 Prisma Colored Pencil and Graphite in a Sketch Cover Sketch Book.
A Master Study from John Buscema one of my favorite comic book artist of all time. I love the way Buscema would draw his women in Conan with this crazy hub cap looking bras / tops all the time. This is Belit from Conan #88 pg 1. I struggled with this one as I am still getting a handle on how to best color these drawings using colored pencils and markers. I don't particularly like the way this finish illustration turned out as far as the coloring goes but I will improve. Colored Pencils, Prisma Color Makers and Graphite in a Sketch Cover Sketch Book.
