This fellow is from a book entitled Bran Mak Morn. He was a celtic king of some sort. Probably Scottish in origin and very untamed. I saw a version of him that another artist did and felt compelled to try my hand. This is the pencil drawing that I will use to create my illustration. The finished painting will be on canvas board. It will measure 16″x20″. Of course he has to be,” heroic in proportion and sullen in countenance”, to maintain the personality of Howard’s characters. There will also be a variety of “stannin stones” to set the scene and perhaps the ruins of an old castle in the background to add to the overall mood.
