Two separate images by two separate artists of Thuvia and her banths. Man, she's hot. She's a great character too.
An interesting approach; what if Star Wars had been less dirty and gritty, would the Millennium Falcon and Docking Bay 94 have looked more like this?
Anyway, Star Wars was gritty and dirty, but presumably ships and docking bays that look more like this exist plenty in the galaxy anyway.

I don't post enough barbarian sword & sorcery art. In fact, other than Frank Frazetta, I didn't necessarily have a lot in my collection until kind of recently (relatively speaking.)
Speaking of barbarians, here's some historical artwork, depicting the Celts as the Romans would have found them.
This is sometimes why I don't have enough old style sword & sorcery artwork other than Frazetta; technically, this is NOWHERE near Frazetta's level, and who wants to invite comparisons that aren't flattering? That said, I really like the notion of these rat people sacrificing a woman to their fat rat idol. There's a story in that, no doubt.
