Super SciFi Fantasy Barbarian by ZaftigBunnyPress Super SciFi Fantasy Barbarian by ZaftigBunnyPress
Or... Dejah Tortoise.

What I wanted to do was pay tribute to all the artists who have inspired me. Grew up loving Frank Frazetta, then the original Heavy Metal Movie. Can't forget Boris Vallejo. Then there are the multitude of 80's adventure movies and their somewhat cheesy poster art. Writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs and his tales of Barsoom and Robert E. Howard's worlds of adventure painted my imagination.

Thanks guys.

I've always wondered: can you call a race 'barbarians' if they know how to use firearms?

On a more related topic, looks lovely.
