Saw your DD today. That was some fine work and an excellent pick as well, but Genn Greymane simply cannot keep pace alone when Conan and Yag Kosha are right next to him on the page.

Well done, sir.

I love Conan. He's such an awesome character.

Yep! All R.E.Howards creations are, but he’s my favorite. I grew up with Conan epics, both through comics (Marvel) and the actual books, still enjoy them to this day.

I collect them. Old and the new. I love them all. It's good to see a  character that lives on day by day basis.

I've taken a look at the rpg, parts of the system are rather tired but it has some good stuff going for it as well.

Classic Savage Sword! I love those covers, done by legends such as Joe Jusko, Bob Camp or Earl Norem. Marvel has the Conan license again, it would be a smart move of their part to hire you ;)

Wonderful work Alex, you captured the look of Conan so perfectly. Nice to know that Frazetta's style still lives on in other artists able to capture Conan's look spot on!

It's official.  I just declared it.

You are Frank Frazetta's duly appointed successor.

Well, I wish I had 1/3 of Frazetta’s talent, but I really, really appreciate the compliment! :)

Give yourself a little credit, Dude.  You not only capture the look of Conan and the Death Dealer, you also get the setting right.  The sense of menace.  The muted palette.  Very nicely done.
