The lion's roar
"Long have I wished to meet you, Amra," the black gave Conan the name Amra, the Lion - by which the Cimmerian had been known to the Kushites in his piratical days."
Long, long time ago I was asked to do an illustration for a Sword&Sorcery Comic Con in Barcelona, Spain. This was my proposal. Conan as a King, with a lion by his side as a family portrait.
I'm pretty sure I would not do an illu like this nowadays: I mean, such detailed draw. Now I'm more fond of composition and clarity of lines.
Anyway, it is an illustration of which I am satisfied.
