#221 Conan




It still my favorite heroic fantasy movie. The subject of that movie has not age a bit.The character portrait here from bottom-up :Subotai Conan and Valeria.If you believed those last posts were strongly influenced by the technique of a famous illustrator you would be right.

#220 The Three Musketeers




By Alexandre Dumas.Here are from Bottom-up Athos Porthos Aramis but no D'Artagnan.As a movie version I'm quite fond of the version with Gene Kelly and Lana Turner.

#219Flash Gordon




I dedicate those drawings of Dale Arden,Flash Gordon and the Emperor Ming to my extremely talented mother in law Amalia Haley. She use to follow back in Italy the comics of Alex Raymond and the movie serie of Buster Crabbe .I guess it was a wonderful way to escape the reality of Mussolini.So,to Ami with love from Patrick
