Red Walkthrough by theCHAMBA Red Walkthrough by theCHAMBA
Been a while since I last posted a walkthrough.

Anyway, I got to draw a Red Sonja cover. For a special One shot to be exact, that should be out in 
April...

More info on the book at the following: www.jimzub.com/red-sonja-and-c…


Top two show the two layout ideas I had for this concept. They opted for the option on the right, as it would allow space for the Logo.
Middle two show the clean lines. I drew two versions of their faces, one a more Manga-influenced line style, while the other more my style. We decided on the option on the right.
Bottom two show the final piece, along with the final cover Logo and all.

Very fun to work on this.
Never expected to have a chance to officially illustrate Red, especially for a cover.
Great times.

im not sure if you have seen man with the iron fists but it would be epic if you did your interpretation of those characters

I have seen it, but that is something that would only be drawn by me if something commissioned it.
I've no reason to draw any of that for myself, hah

I remember back in the day seeing how you did your process! 
simple and yet it blew my mind, i went on a illustration spree after that using said process.
still use it to this day.

I'm diggin' the reflective light that bounced off her scale mail back into the shadows of her torso. That's a cool detail to throw in. I might've dropped the background into a cooler color to make her hair and silhouette pop out more, however.

ohyeah.
The brown was supposed to highlight her warmth in the cold.
so that's my reason for it.

Sonja has a kid now? I thought she was celibate...

Reminds me of stevelecouilliard.deviantart.c… and his Una the blade, warrior woman lugging her brats around... :)

nobody said anything about it being her kid.

Yeah I saw that later when I looked at the previews. But "cub" does kind of imply parenthood.

Haha, sorry you're right ! But when i talk about US comics industry, i only got in mind DC comics and Marvel that's my mistake ^^
