Splatter Portraits

These are the results of an experimental portraiture style I developed. They feature characters from the world of Lhem.

Kuru of Cimmeria

PJ Rush art

Robert E. Howard‘s Conan is from the land of Cimmeria in the Hyborean Age. It was only in adulthood that I learned Howard had borrowed the name of a real-life location (known today as Crimea). Taking inspiration from this, I created Kuru, a warrior from the historical Cimmeria, transported forward in time to the era of the Soviet Union.
