I really enjoyed doing this one. I love S & S stuff. It just comes more naturally to me than the superheroes. Can you spot the hidden Evangelion reference?

Love it Dave! Nice to see a stand alone inking of one of my favorite stories of Howard's.

Well I was fine enjoying the art until I read Dave's comment about something hidden in there... and now I... must.. find.. it. Splendid piece Dave, thanks!

A superb addition. I really like this new theme and Dave really hit this out of the park.

This ink is deceptively good. At first glance it's easy to see that this is a really good ink job. There's a lot of details though that really blend in to this piece and give it a lot of character. Like Conan's attire, the necklace on the guy in the lower right, the leather gauntlets. This is a really nice piece Dave, thanks for sharing.

There's so much too this piece! It's really well done!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Conan is standing there with an empty mug because he just chugged down his beverage. In retrospect, there are a couple of things I'd like to tweak, but I usually want to keep fiddling with the art.
