Unless one were posting an actual photo of a woman dressed like this would be the only way for somebody to have a visual of what RED SONJA would look like in reality if she were walking right by you out in the real REAL world. Looking at this painting I notice the hard athletic ( BUT SEXY ) body and can feel the strength and power a woman like this would actually have. Trying to imagine who would best play the role of RED in a movie were it made 30 or so years ago. This particular painting I see a little Raquel Welch and a little Adrienne Barbeau. But even the vivacious Raquel and the voluptuous Adrienne never had physique's like this. But I am highly impressed by the photo realistic qualities of this artists skills. Not too realistic so as not to forget it's a painting.
