Hi I have been a fan of Conan for a very long time now. It was the first movie I ever saw in the cinema when I was 3 years old. (my dad had no right to take a 3 year old to this movie but he did and I love him for it).
I have been obsessed with it ever since and like alot of you on this forum I can recite the entire movie in my head.
My old man also had boxes upon boxes of the comics along with various novels.

Well I came across this image on the web and it led me to this site. I plan on getting it tattooed and was wondering if anyone in here
A: knows the artist or
B: has a higher resolution version of it.

Thanks for reading!

Hi,

It's from artist William Stout who made a lot of pre-production work with Ron Cobb on Conan the Barbarian back in 1979-1980. He met Ron Cobb at the ABA Convention (American Booksellers Association, I think it was in LA) on summer 1979 and joined the pre-production team shortly after. It's in fact a "special" christmas card from 1979. William Stout made many sketches and paintings for Conan, while Cobb drew in particular on graph paper. Stout also began to make an interesting "comic style" storyboard of John Milius' script, most impressive...

Thank you so very much! And not just for the pic but also for the background on it. I honestly thought that this would be a long shot and nothing would happen.
I will post a picture of the tattoo when finished if anyone is interested.
Again A thousand thanks!

And the best part is that the tattoo will in fact be a Christmas present from my wife. Very fitting.
