These were apparently done in 1978 (?), so before Dino De Laurentiis was involved, and obviously based on the Oliver Stone script.

Pics come from this book: archive-editions.com/jimdanforthlayo1.html

I'm assuming more of his CONAN designs are included in the book...

Sorry if the pics don't show up in my previous message, but as a new member on this board, I just discovered I'm not allowed to post any links or pics during 7 days! (WTF?)
So I had to shorten the pics and link URLSs by removing the http : // www . bit at the beginning...

The tower and the serpent, even Yasmina, are all in Oliver Stone's 1978 CONAN script. Danforth's concept designs are likely based on that draft as he was initially involved in the project. Stop motion effects were most likely considered as there was no other way that they could have realized some of Stone's ambitious ideas at the time. These pics are priceless. Thanks for sharing.
