I'm lifelong Conan fan and tend to cringe at modern stylizations of the film franchise but I gotta say, I do like this.  The layout soars.  Brilliantly symmetrical with each character represented with relevant placement.  It shows that you watched the movie 10 times. Very respective details! My only criticism: the negative space.  It doesn't work in your favor with upper 2/3 of the poster so lavish.  The winter scenes in the opening of the film would work well there.  But back to the point, brilliant job! Awesome work! I'd love to see more of your "style" Conan.  All the best.

Cool. Just showed this to my D&D group. I was shocked none of them had seen it.

Thanks bro, yeh the second one is horrible. even the remake they did last year was pretty bad..devoid of any real story, i actually watched all of them and decided on this one...plus Arnold is the man.
