Repost from Scotch Corner - Over on Scotch Corner, Tom started doing a Marvel Comic A to Z collections and I joined in at C with this Conan pencil drawing. The original illustration is availble to buy over at the online shop!
Marvel produced Conan the Barbarian comics mostly during the 1970s, written (again mostly) by Roy Thomas and illustrated by Barry Windsor-Smith, John Buscema, Alfredo Alcala and a few others. I'll admit to having read none of those comics so I'm no judge if they are any good, certainly Savage Sword of Conan seems to have been a popular title and I did read one issue of that years ago as Scottish artist Colin MacNeil illustrated the story.
I know Conan the Cimmerian through the books of Robert E Howard which I read mostly in my teens and the two Schwarzenegger films 'Conan the Barbarian' (1982) and "Conan the Destroyer' (1984). So my rendition finished just today I feel leans more towards the fantasy look of the character rather than the comics version.
