Marion the Barbarian


I kind of stole this idea from my dad who once did a Francis the Barbarian. Big burly guys with girly names are funny to me. John Wayne's real name was Marion Morrison.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Ben, I jump between Photoshop and Painter. Most of the actual painting happens in Painter, but I'm always messing with value, colors, saturation, and that stuff in Photoshop.

Tyler, Alfred Hitchcock made a film version of Jamaica Inn in 1939. And there was a made for tv version made in 1985, neither were very good. But Hitchcock's film version of Rebecca (another DuMaurier classic) is superb.

This has got to be one of my favs from you. The style, the flow, the weight, everything is superb. I love how my eye wanders all over it taking in the detail. Five stars!

Had to comment on this image in particular. The design just pops out at me! Clicked on it almost by instinct. (dude, these word verifications are hard! I've failed twice!!)
