Kull- Ink version by andybrase Kull- Ink version by andybrase
Kull: The Conqueror
ink line art with pencil shading
cover art for Kull #1 from Dark Horse Comics

WIP, pencil details and sketches for this art here: [link]

Here's the ink version of my redesign of Robert E. Howard's character, Kull. The idea was to make him look different than Conan and have his own identity. I also created the visual design for the creature behind Kull.

Awsome!! I love your style!! Can I hire you? If not, do you know somebody I could?

I'm looking for a talented artist to create a proto-type comic book for the saga that I have written. It is an episodic action based sci-fi thriller named "Human." The story has some similarities with Sin City and Battle Angel Alita, so I am looking for something with that sort of a feel. The scripts all have copyrights and are registered with the screenwriters guild, so I am comfortable emailing you the scripts. I have the first several episodes of the series written already, and without boasting, they are quite strong.

The proto-type will be done in black and white... so ink. It's inexpensive, quick, and easiest without color. I am willing to pay a minimum of $500 for the project and possibly more depending upon your professional experience. I am only expecting about 20-30 pages worth of work. Please note that I am not offering ownership rights to the story that I have written. You will receive paid compensation and be given full credit for your work. However, if you are an accredited and established artist with proven connections into the comic and or television industry I would be willing to negotiate ownership rights... otherwise, I'd prefer to just pay you cash if that's okay :)

Please email me with your contact info and samples of your portfolio. If I like what I see, I will contact you back with the script and will ask you to do a 1 minute sketch of 4 or 5 of the characters, just to see if we're on the same page with the story and characters. I prefer working with somebody in locally and in person, but am open to working over the internet if it is with the right person.

Use whatever works for you. I inked 4 issues of a D&D comic and a few other small press comics early in my career with microns.

Robert E. Howard's Kull didn't have a scar... Marvel added that element. Dark Horse wanted their version of Kull to be without the scar.

Peerless execution by any standard! I can't make out an axe scar on his face, though. You can't have Kull without the scar Borna gave him.

It’s too long ago for me to remember clearly enough to swear to it, but I’m fairly sure I read a printed version of the Kull story in which he wrested the throne of Valusia from the megalomaniacal Borna, and sustained a glancing blow to the face from Borna’s axe in the process. Is it possible such a story might have authored by L. Sprague de Camp or Lin Carter?

I'm not sure really... I just know Dark Horse didn't want the scar for their version... and from the bits I was given to read of Howard's Kull, I didn't see a mention of the scar.
