There really is no competion. There is this version, and countless other imitators and duplicators. A masterpiece.

outstanding colors and shading, and their appearance reminds me of how both of them looked in the classic comics instead of the movies, by Mitra! ;)

Excellent, you caught the right look for Conan, very Frazetta, exactly how Howard saw him. Sonja looks great, too.

Nice palette, I like skin tone, but girl's face looks weird a bit (flat or bad angled I'm not quite sure), and her neck is too short I think.

The work on Sonja is magnificent: she seems ready to walk out of the painting :wow: :eyepopping: :wow:

Conan looks impressive, but even a tough barbarian would suffer dearly from carrying such a heavy sword with the edge rested on his shoulder :hmm:

As a kid I loved to watch conan and sonja, and know as an adult and artist, I come to admire Frank Frazetta work. I can see all those influence in this epic painting, I know being a fan my-self the person who commission you most have been very pleased with it.
