Conan the Barbarian 2011 by RubusTheBarbarian Conan the Barbarian 2011 by RubusTheBarbarian
This is a Frank Frazetta homage on the depiction of the greatest barbarian warrior of all time! Digital painting using the likeness of Jason Momoa and Rachel Nichols, due to the new Conan movie release!

You know, I really like Rachel Nichols in this one. Kind of a shame she was a robed monk in the movie.

Im really sad because the movie was pretty awful.. Bad story, bad music, bad editing, bad direction.. The only thing that tried with all its powers to save this movie was the cast (Jason Momoa was an incredible Conan) but unfortunately that was not enough.. :( They need to reboot the franchise with a monumental movie, not crap like the 2011 one!!!

I totally agree... I think Jason Momoa was a much better fit for Conan character than A. Schwarzenegger (dull impression and steroid muscles did not work for me) ... Too bad that the movie was such a bad one... It might have completely killed the franchise...

And, if worst comes to worst (granted I'm hoping all the elements (plot, actors, etc) play out well), I know I'll at least enjoy all the bloody carnage the movie is bound to have. At least that aspect will certainly put any past conan film to shame :D

Ah, I was wondering why his face didn't look right ... it's a good image, I just wish they hadn't made such a poor choice for Conan.

Nuh I completely disagree! Momoa is like he was directly drawn out from Robert Howard's description of Conan! Much much closer to the writings than Arnie ever was.. (though I just love Arnie for introducing me to that great characer! ;) )

Momoa is surprisingly an amazing choice for conan.

So how pumped are you to see this movie?! Jason Momoa was pretty awesome in Game of Thrones, so I have pretty high expectations of Conan.

Oh you cant imagine matey! I think Momoa is going to be a great Conan! Maybe the best thing this movie has to offer! :D

The screenwriters were the same guys that wrote Sahara and Dylan Dog...neither of which I've seen. I'm really crossing my fingers and holding my breath, man. I hope it's awesome, but at the very least, I know it will look good.

Well after those two guys came Sean Hood who is (i think) a much much better screenwriter AND a Robet Howard fan! All the Howard quotes we;ve heard in those trailers are his additions so my hopes are high because of that.. I read that there are refferals to the Tower of the Elephant, Queen of the Black Coast and the battle of Venarium within the film! :D

I hope so! The only Sean Hood thing I've ever heard of is The Crow: Wicked Prayer, and I never got around to seeing it. Still, it's awesome that they're sticking close to the source material.
