Where do you guys get the pictures for your Conan avatars? Sorry if this is an inappropriate thread to ask this question, I'm new to this forum & I've searched Google for Conan art without text but to no avail.

Terrific! Dark Horse should buy this sequence and use it in their QBC series. Roumbouliasis showing us, and DH, how QBC should be illustrated.

"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

I would pay good money for a full comic like that. The art is action-packed and visceral (oh, and Belit looks great, too). Very well done, sir!

Oh I'd love to adapt Queen of the Black Coast, People of the Black Circle and Hour of the Dragon into full graphic novels.. They are my favorite Howard sotries! :D Unfortunately the Queen is taken for now,.. :( I hope some time in the near future I'll have the chance to work on at least one of the other two stories.. :)

Hi Rubus,

Took your time getting these great pieces up here. they are amaziing, I have seen your others on your facebook ;)

Please consider contacting DH directly my friend and blast their doors open with that awsome Conan face and structure. Not too big and not too small m8.

Keep showing us more. :)

That is a shame... and it is also incredible and ironic that Dark Horse let Hawthorne draw almost 12 issues of that dreadful Road of Kings series. Who knows Dark Horse choices????????
Your art is infinitely better.

Well thanks for your kind words though I believe mr Hawthorne's work was quite good at that point. But it's a matter of taste anyhow. ;) Oh well we shall see what Dark Horse has to show us, as Queen of the Black Coast continues. :)

Dark Horse thought this was a great cover.

Until a new editor takes the reins there's no telling what garbage they will embrace, and what gems will be discarded. The expression "Pearls before swine" comes to mind.

Yeah...go figure what goes through DH art director's minds. I mean, look at Rubus awsome, powerfull and amazingly drawn images, plus he knows how to tell a sequenced story...and DH doesn't even deijgn to answer the guy. But then again, I guess it must be everything else, favors are traded, "the friend of my niece has nice drawings, give him a chance, I owe you one, yeah your golf membership card should be in the mail as we speak...etc.etc." kind of thing and we have to swallow all they send our way...

The only thing I suggest you should change, Rubus, are Conan muscles. He is too Arnold, in my opinion. He looks a little bit stiff and blocky, if that is a proper word. Other than that, perfect. Less muscles, more natural movements?

Very nice work Rubus!
And we end up with Conans styled as sissies and muppets. :(
