John Carter of Mars by Valzonline John Carter of Mars by Valzonline
... and Dejah Thoris of course. I needed a break from all my digital stuff (I'm a bit bored of it in fact), so I tried to make a fine rendition of these two amazing characters, in the 'old fashion way'.
It was a lot of fun, and I'm really happy with the end result.
Hope you like it too.
Best.

Tools: watercolors and markers (plus PS for the bg texture).

Very good... could be the cover art for a reprint of the book(With a little more clothing on Dejah). Do you intend to do any of the martian animals or airships?

Wow! Frazetta would be proud.
This is John Carter and Queen Thoris as I remember them from the stories. Nicely done! :)

HOLY SNICKERDOODLES! That guy is ripped! And looks to have some sort of brain damage. I don't know, the way the muscles are all built, it just looks off.

Always get a kick out of those style of...whatever you'd call what Dejha is wearing. How on Earth do they actually stay on?

YES YES I love me some John Carter of Mars.

Beautiful render of them.

Dejah looks abit too white for my tastes but damn if this doesnt look like something off of the cover of the book!
