I made this sketch for my hubby. I'd like to draw things he loves. We both love Conan, and tried to create an atmosphere that would be faithful to the character.

And just as a side note: when I made this picture, I played a TON of Monster Hunter and I think it kinda shows :D And I think Conan strangling huge lizards to death with his bare hands fits the character well :D

There is a startling lack of blood splatter.

Otherwise, looks fantastic! ;)

woah, dude that is far from a fair fight... make it 2 big bad monster bois for him to fight, bare handed and with just a loin cloth, THEN it's a fair fight

It's too bad the Robert E. Howard (Conan's creator) committed suicide at such a young age (around 30).  I would have loved to see what he could have done with Conan.  BTW, Robert E. Howard also created Kull the Destroyer and, I believe, Red Sonja.  I could be wrong about Red Sonja, though.

My god... I didn't know he committed suicide! :O I looked him up on Wikipedia, and apparently most of his works were published after his death. Maybe he didn't even know how much people loved his works... :(

From a semi-biography I read about him, he was very close to his mother.  When she died (according to what I had read), he couldn't deal with it and decided to kill himself.  Wikipedia tells it slightly differently but either way, he did commit suicide.

You're right, though.  Almost all of his writings were published after his death, especially his Conan stories.  L. Sprague de Camp's Conan stories are written in a style so similar to Robert E. Howard's style that it's almost impossible to tell one from the other.  I believe most people know de Camp's stories better than Howard's.
