Dejah Thoris sketch by diablo2003 Dejah Thoris sketch by diablo2003
A sketch done at a convention for a fan of Dejah Thoris from the science fiction novel John Carter: A Princenss of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Added a quick background a little bit of color to jazz it up a bit. Done is copic markers, ink, white acrylic and white prismacolor.

Hope you dig!

As a kid who grew up on my uncle's Frazetta-illustrated ERB books, I really appreciate artists who can do such great tributes to his fantastic jewelry and armor--all those sweeping Art Nouveau arcs and multiple wires/strands and all. So I continue to love this and your similar work like a loving thing that loves. With love.

Loving the style, and those are some very Martian colours.

What's that style of clothing and weaponry called? Is it 70's Sci-Fi or something?

How did you do the border around her in such a short time? With it looking that symmetrical. Great piece though, love the colors and lighting

I dug! I always think that Dejah has some of the more interesting armor anywhere. Even Red Sonja has better coverage! But somehow you manage to convey a warrior lurking behind those bits and pieces. Mars must be humid as hell.

I learned so much about Dejah Thoris and the novels just by reading your description and reading the comments. This is really a beautiful piece of art!
