Conan - - pulp writer Robert E. Howard's most famous creation. I drew this picture originally for a black & white portfolio, illustrating REH's Conan tale, "Beyond the Black River". The portfolio was published in the magazine REH: Two-Gun Raconteur. I liked how this one turned out, so before adding black to the background I photocopied it, so I could later paint it.
Painted with Acrylics. The lettering and border at the bottom was added in PhotoShop.
