Red Sonja Tribute to Boris Vallejo by flyashy Red Sonja Tribute to Boris Vallejo by flyashy
I always wanted to do a Red Sonja & grew up on Boris Vallejo's fantasy paintings.
So, as a tribute decided to recreate his painting.
Of course the misty minarets in the background are missing, but I've tried to emulate the lighting of the painting the best I could.
Posed in DAZ, rendered in LuxRender via Reality.
C&C most welcome.
Cheers!

Two things - first, I love this picture; second, would you mind if I borrowed it?


I have been a fan of Red Sonja for a long time.  I think that this is at least in part because she is not a pure heroine, but a highly-flawed individual with a mass of issues and personality disorders.  My favourite image of her is the one by Vallejo which you reference here.  It emphasises her outsideness like none I have ever seen.


I also write Red Sonja Fan-Fiction in a small way, which I've just started to upload to fanfiction.net.  It's easy to find; I am the only one (to my astonishment) who has posted stories about her.  Anyway, I was browsing in search of a suitable cover-image, and I came across this one - and that was it.


Yes, I know I should have asked first, but I loved it so much I couldn't help myself.  So I'm asking now - is it OK with you if I use your picture as a cover for my stories?  Naturally, I will credit you if you wish.

Oh, no problems, go ahead and use it, but besides crediting me, don't forget to credit the painter of the original, Mr. Vallejo; we wouldn't want anyone pointing fingers (or swords) at us would we?  :)

I must try that fanfiction site you mentioned, but for that I need to find some time :)

Do send me a link to your stories :)

Cheers mate!
