The second picture looks all wrong. Too clean/fresh.
It does look a bit like he's on a leisurely stroll down a New England country road.
That second pic isn't right. He looks terribly out of context.
They're both all wrong. I haven't seen a snake yet :p
The guy looks too angry. Conan never lost his cool, even when ramming a log down a T-rex's gaping maw.
I have seen those pics (and more) months ago. I'm quite content with this guy, because he whats to make it true to Howard. I liked the (ambush) interview by TMZ, when they ask why he was playing Conan with a hairy chest, he said "This is barbarian hair. He a drunken f**king hairy animal!" (Howard did make note of his chest on one yearn, but most people still thinks he his clean-shaven), and that he "would not take anything from the Governor (Schwarzenegger)", then said he "wants to keep things true to Mr. Howard.""They're both all wrong. I haven't seen a snake yet :p"O_O I think that came out wrong, as it sounds like you what to see his "snake" - I'm not going to ask!
The first pic looks great! Conan lost his cool plenty of times! Heck, losing his cool helped him get out of a few scrapes, if I recall correctly.As far as the second pic goes...he's riding a horse and carrying a sword, not sitting side-saddle with a bouquet of roses!
2nd picture - Aquilonia perhaps?
@ MalcadonI was more meaning the fact that I have read few Conan tales which did not include at least one giant snake. It's kinda REH's thing. Maybe someone needs to get their mind out of the gutter.
