This is Fantastic!
Thanks a lot, guys! I think the contest has 1 winner with everyone else coming in 2nd. I will have to be more badass next time.
It's REALLY good, love the muscle tone, character design and atmosphere. I'm think I'm more drawn to the cool-toned one.
Edit: On second thought, the green one is more balanced...man this is hard. Maybe a compromise? It's hard to say.

Let's just have our own little voting session right here! Because I want to vote for yours too! Its better in every way.
I would buy a print of it too and hang it right here in front of me to tell me...yes...you can make something badass today. In fact, a caption at the bottom of the print that says that might just do the trick!
Btw I like the blue one
Sick, man - just fierce. That is most definately Conan, all the way. I really appreciate that he's carrying both the Atlantean sword and his father's sword + battle axe for good measure. (right click, save as...)
He pops more on the blue, but for whatever reason I'm more drawn to the green. Well done, sir.
Watch out for Piranhas
"By Crom !" This piece is just amazing !
@ Piranha Clan - +50 awesomeness points to you for recognizing both swords! I know there are some Conan purists who hate the movie swords, but I grew up on all of the Conan media and feel that those swords are iconic and help strengthen his overall visual identity.
BTW, the axe was inspired by the axe he used in the final battle at the end of the first movie before his duel with Rexor.

I really like this. It reminds me a little bit of the scene in Mulan when they encounter the Huns in the mountain pass.
Very good work.
