CONAN The Barbarian Ep.1

Author Comments

**UPDATE** Wow!! I'd like to thank everyone for making this submission 2nd place -My first NG award! I'm glad I did Conan fans proud. Episode 2 is in the works!
Just to answer a few of the most common questions:
1. Yes, it is hand drawn using a WACOM art pad.
2. The music is actually from the main theme from the Conan movie soundtrack.

This movie came about largely in part to requests I recieved for a full-blown Conan movie after I uploaded my short "Conan On..."(which if you have not seen you should check it out).

So here it is, the first of a series (If it's popular enough). I used many of the elements that make Conan what it is...namely nudity and violence.
I know the file size is somewhat big, but the movie is over a minute -and I don't think you will be dissapointed (Hell, where else are you going to see a naked woman fight a barbarian).

Please leave comments! They help a great deal.

It was too short for my tastes, but you made up for it. This was still good, and I salute your skills.

Cool, but no so goo critically

I like how you take a really artsy animation style and make it all brutal; the silhouette design mixed with all that blood is especially pleasing and this kind of artwork would make a really cool game. I really like how you took the movie's original music and put it into this short flick.
Unfortunately, you really glance over the story (ripping off "Braveheart" as Conan throws the sword into the field), and even that is way off from the original story. I also don't like how short it is. No to be picky, but some of the artwork is also noticeably rough, like the "Dark Eye"

It's a neat animation, but overall it really boils down something a novice would do to amuse himself and I hope there's a lot more effort in the potential sequel.


I got a good laugh out of Conan just standing there and taking the throwing knives

It's so-so

Well, the idea is good enough. The universe of Robert E. Howard is always worthy to be in every aspect of popular culture and various media. The idea for the plot is kinda decent, but the lack of sounds and the poorly design and animation makes it not worthy to recieve more than 5/10. I suggest, you gather some of your friends to record the dialogue and don't make such a bold attempt by yourself next time...


Terribly animated, and only worth watching it for the hot sex porno titties
