Red Nails

Frontispiece artwork commissioned for Orion's Chronicles of Conan. A collection of Robert E. Howard Conan stories, presented for the first time in chronological order. I wanted to steer well clear of the "steroid barbarian" approach which has become so common. I can't see Conan as a bodybuilder. As far as I know there were no gyms in Cimmeria. I re-read the original stories to try and get the right feel and to try to avoid some of the more usual clichés. His costume is derived from Howard's description, although strictly speaking Conan should be wearing shorts! I sort of felt that wouldn't work. See the original sketch in the Prelims Gallery.
