Red Sonja was inspired by Gail Simone & Walter Geovani’s wonderful recent run on the comics. Although i hadn’t read any of the previous publications i was always a fan of the character. Gail and Walter made her feel like a very rounded and believable character, i wanted to continue that feeling with my interpretation of her. I LOVE the traditional Red Sonja design (silver mail bikini and naught much else!) but i knew i was going to have to elaborate on her clothing a bit with the nature of CG images. Although it’s straying from the traditional design i think she’s still identifiable because the mail bikini and red hair are such strong design elements.
