Red Sonja - A colleague requested this commission if and when I had free time during Heroes Convention. That kind of time never did become available to me. So I created it after I returned home from the con. and with the added benefit of the fact that had I started drawing on 9" x 12" boards in the midst of the con. having run out of comic book sized (6.75" x 10.5") backing boards which, for the purposes of penciling and inking, were necessarily un-coated on one side.
