Warrior queen with son:
all very rough, all done at work, I stole the design of the armor the queen is wearing from Highlander (1986).
I guess that means there can be more than one....I stole the design of the armor the queen is wearing from Highlander (1986).
Nice work. I like the poses.
I like the Conan image A LOT!!.. You're a man after my own heart, in that you like to represent him as he tends to be depicted in REH's original stories, dressed for combat, in armour etc, rather than the fur daiper thing.
I do think however that you should thicken out the legs, even allowing for the possibility that you may be trying to represent him as a 'real' man & not a barbarian superman, I think it's fair to say that a dweller fron the northern lands, & survivor of countles adventures would be planted on firmer calves than that.
In the first couple sketches, the legs definitely need a bit more work. You should try to make them both thicker and less curvy. It almost looks as if they have double knees.
I'm glad you like my approach to the character, John Buscema will always be my favorite Conan artist, but Mark Schultz was my biggest influence when doing this sketch as he also tended to take the anti-fur diaper and swashbuckler boots approach, opting instead for a more Celtic or central German iron age look eg chainmail, sandled-feet, central european iron age style swords.
If not you'll be totatally bewildered J. when I yell:
Something even more localized to these parts.
Oh, and as for your drawings, I generally agree with the others about them, so I didn't really feel I was adding anything by saying something.

Conan is not the Hulk, he's not King Kull, hell, he's not even Captain America. He's a lean, lanky guy. Think Schwarzenegger AFTER losing 50 lbs AND growing 6 inches.
