THE HYBORIAN WORLD


THE HYBORIAN AGE CONCEPT
Hi!
For ages I was wanting to create a landscape from Robert E. Howard's Conan The Barbarian's Hyborian world but for a change to have less focus on Conan himself and more focus on the world around him . For this piece which I did a little while ago, I decided to adapt the art from a cover I did for a good buddy of mine [Michael Ward] and the Destiny Quest series. 
I have created Conan pieces before [either fight scenes or intimate standing poses] but this was my first step into thinking about the Hyborian Age and I thought this could be a good fit for some of the southern kingdoms like Shem or even Khitai to the east. I am planning on more scenes when I have the time to really flesh out his world from the ground up so to speak and start thinking of the Vilayet Sea and the surrounding islands and Stygia and how I think they might look.  
Best Wishes and check back for more art soon!
