The anatomy, configuration and fire-illuminated skin tones of your heroic-warriors reminds me so much of the John Duillo covers in the 60s Lancer Conan series. Duillos Conans were always underappreciated, no doubt because he was competing with Frank Frazettas Conans. But Duillos warriors were great, like your Hercules in this composition. You really capture the explosive mythic hyper-reality necessary to illustrating comic book exposition. Battle scenes like this one, done for comics, are often capable of better representing the ferocity, madness and pathos of men killing other men better than most of Hollywoods cinematic efforts.
It's superb I can't believe it ! That's so awesome scene. Lion mask is really stunning and it's absolutely great idea to give scary impression to your enemy. His mimic also shows great warrior never hesitate never fear
