Well this one is better than the other guys version of conan, it does indeed look like young conan but not young conan of the black coast because he was a super slayer on the coast he was called amra the lion that wasnt till later any who, it sorta looks like rob e howard except robs guy was usaly half naked. Well mija you did good except u made look like he is bending the helt of the sword

OK! This is what I'm talking about! This is Robert E. Howard's Conan. This man's limbs arn't all oiled down like a body builder. He is a hard man from what I can see. I am a REH fanatic and his Conan isn't a male P**n Star. I love the tunic and cloak, it's perfect. The only problem is that REH describes Conan as a hairy hillman from the North. In this stupid day N age, we make our heroes pretty boys; well, sorry people because Conan ain't. He's got hair and a beard. So artist, lets make REH proud, forget the "so called fans" because Conan is a beasty, hairy son of a cimmerian! Crom!

Looks a bit weedy for Howard's hero. Now, I'm no fan of the oiled-up, chest-hair-waxing, steroid-abusing bodybuilder Conan of the comics and Boris Vallejo's godawful 'art', but he's supposed to be a BIG man who wrestles with savage Cimmerian cave-bears without breaking into a sweat. As a drawing, though, it's not half bad (damneth he faint-praisingly 2).
