I think one of the few times I have ever seen Conan the Barbarian drawn so true to character. People over look the fact that he was battle scarred even on his face. Hollywood has a way of taking what gives a character, character. Excellent job. Exactly how you would think someone would look living his life in his savage world.

I could see something like this being made on Face Off. The way that his facial features are remind me of what some of the artists did on the show.

Now this, this is what Conan The Barbarian truly must have looked like. If one has ever read of his adventures...he could look no less.

Great Conan!! A little older and more seasoned. REH would be proud.

That's how I see it. And one day someone will be smart enough to make a movie pulling stories from the books do Howard's and Frazetta's raw Conan well.
One Day.
