I did this illustration for an auction to benefit comics writer and artist William-Messner Loebs being organized by Clifford Meth and Neal Adams. Bill has written Thor, Wonder Woman, Johnny Quest, Maxx, Dr. Fate, The Flash and wrote and drew his own "Journey".

I don't know how the auction is going to be done if it will be on Ebay or a live auction somewhere, but I'll definitely post the info here when I find out.
I don't want to say definitely that this is Conan, because I realize that I have no idea how Conan really looks like as described by Robert E. Howard. But Conan was the one that I really wanted to draw. Conan still remains as one of those characters that I'd really love to do in comics in the future.
I have a deep artistic connection to Conan after being blown away by Barry Windsor-Smith's rendition, and after seeing the work by Alfredo Alcala, Rudy Nebres, Alex Niño, Ernie Chan and other Filipinos who worked on the character.
