Shop Conqueror Canvas Print by artist Rebecca Magar available at Artist.com. Check out the Canvas Print collections available at Artist.com.An evil king on horseback impales an enemy fighter with his war banner in this dark battle scene. “Conqueror” was illustrated using pen & ink with digital enhancement for the first Cultic T-Shirt. This illustration extends the “High Command” album cover by placing the king and his horse at center stage. Other themes from the album artwork are also carried-over including the battle axe, flail, and armor designs.
I have always been inspired by fantastic and imaginative stories with dark themes. In addition to my love of fantasy, I grew up with a close relationship to (and love for) animals. These ideas and inspirations naturally made their way into my own work while I progressed as an artist.
My work would be best described as imaginative realism or dark fantasy art and has been compared to other traditional illustrative artists such as Frank Frazetta or Jeff Jones. I frequently include animals, death, skeletons, crows and other dark subject matter in my artwork.
As an artist, I try to breathe life into each piece by incorporating both subtle and bold movements. My hope is that the observer not only views the artwork, but also imagines the rushing wind, senses the cold, or hears the sound of wings thrashing in the sky. I aim for each and every piece to be a complete visual experience.
