Well my getting back to painting some miniatures has been a bit delayed and bit sidetracked. Been drawing and inking a bit. Also been working on my house and such as well. And then my actual job kept me really busy with some deadlines. But I managed some time the last couple of days to get back to the painting desk with a variety of projects.

When I was a kid, I would spend hours looking at Marvel Comics' Big John Buscema's Conan and Thor and Avengers. I was not a rich kid, I did not have a ton of comicbooks, just a few. John Buscema artwork was what I thought was perfect for comic books. I would spend many days trying to draw like him, inspired by him. Many of those books fell apart and are in complete tatters, as I would take them with me on family trips to pass the time. The only one I still have from then is Thor Annual #5, the covers are missing pieces, the book has been restapled, the pages are yellowed and worn. A few years ago I bought a better copy of that book for my collection. Now I have 100s of comics, mostly Conan, by John Buscema.
This piece is inspired by Big John, a Conan cover that he did years ago. This is my version of that.

Been a while since I sat down and put pencil to paper and then dug out the quill and brush and some india ink. I will be painting today, but just finished up this piece and scanned it. Getting some of the creative juices flowing again by drawing some things and inking other great artist's work as well.
So this one is on me, somewhere out there, barbarians are fighting:
