Killer job on Conan. Love the colors.

I miss when a new Savage Sword comic would come out every month.

Y'know something thats been urking me since the new Conan movie was coming out, was all the fan-boys complaining about the look of the actor they got to play as Conan.

Often they say "He looks NOTHING like a Cimmerian! Cimmerians are pre-Celtic!" Well! One thing we should all know that the original name given to the Celts were 'The Picts'! Kinda ironic there don't you think???

Funnily enough I think he looks EXACTLY like Barry Windsor-Smith's iconic Conan in Red Nails, etc. Arnie was a dead-ringer for Buscema's Conan. Nobody looks like Frazetta's conan! :)

Indeed.

& thats the point that I think a lot of people have missed about fantasy characters, especially pre-history fantasy characters!

They can look anyway you want them too! Its all a matter of interpretation!

Now! How the new Conan acts/behaves is ALL that counts!

I love Conan, I'm from Texas, the birth place of Conan. I live 15 minutes away from Mission TX., where Robert E. Howard, Conan's creator, sat one morning remembering the mist covered hills of Fredricksburg TX., and wrote the poem Cimmeria. I really love this piece. Your truely captured the spirit of the wild barbarian in all his gory glory. Just as the late great Frank Frazetta first did. Hats off, great work.

Hey Liam, did you design Conan for the PS3 and 360 games? It looks like it to me!Sweet Conan by the way!

:iconliamsharp:
LiamSharp Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2010  Professional Artist
Thanks man. No, sadly. Never did those designs, though who knows? They may have seen this online - it's been circulating for at least five years, possibly six - and been inspired by it. :)

Take care!

My bro saw your art, and he wanted to know if you could draw Naughty bear as a comic strip maybe?Or cover art? It's a new game and pretty much youre a stuffed bear who violently beats other stuffed bears lol. I told him youre busy, as you are an artist, but he still wanted to know. BTW, his B-day is on the 14th;) Take care bud,
Jordan and Scott

Ha ha! Naughty bear? Funny.
Sadly I can't just do one-off jobs like that - I get so many requests for stuff for free if I did them all I wouldn't get any of my work done, plus I'd be broke... LOL! Glad he likes my stuff enough to ask though. :)

Take care,
